I knew it was going to be a rainy week, so I didn't expect to have any chance of going mountain biking during the Egg Fast. On the morning of the Egg Fast Day 1, I had my usual cup of green tea, mixed with ½ tsp of guarana powder. Next thing, I went to my Monday kettlebell lifting workout, which starts at 7:30. The workout went through well, as usual, done in a fasted state.
One thing people mention a lot while egg fasting (or on keto in general) is that they don't get hungry too easily. Well, that's unfortunately different for me. By 1:30 pm I was ready for a snack. I prepared myself Fried Boiled Eggs by Kathleen Collins. Didn't leave out the Yum Yum sauce, of course. Saved leftover Yum Yum in the fridge.
At this time, I had eaten 5 eggs, 3 Tbsp of fat, and 2 oz. cheese. Finally, I felt satiety for the next 4 hours (which is kind of personal record)!
At 4:30 pm I prepared Fettuccini Alfredo by I breath I'm hungry. I love this recipe (have tried it out in the past), so I made a double batch and stored half of it for another day. The sauce is really good and could be used elsewhere. I also think I'm going to try to keep the "pasta" uncut the next time and use it as a wrap. Plus, I'll try baking it in a covered pan in place of an oven, and see what happens.
Cheese crisps, made of a 1-ounce slice of cheddar, cut into 4 triangles, nuked in the microwave for 1.5 minutes. Dipped into a Tbsp of sugar-free mayo. Mmmmmm! Didn't look at the clock. 🙂
8:00 pm. 1-ounce aged sheep cheese and 1 Tbsp sugar-free mayo.
The outcome of the Egg Fast Day 1:
- 7 eggs
- 7 Tbsp fat
- 6.5-ounce cheese
Some say you should consume up to 6 oz. cheese a day, but wasn't too concerned about my daily outcome, as long as I didn't go way too over the 6-ounce limit. On the second thought, I might have lost more pounds if I'd lowered the cheese intake.
Anyways, went to bed at 11:00 pm, happy and not hungry. Had plenty of water during the day (12 cups or so), took my minerals, vitamins, and extra Omega 3's (which is not included in the above outcome).
