On Egg Fast Day 2, I woke up after a high quality 8-hour sleep. Felt energetic and light (less puffed than a couple of days before). Stepped on the scale, and it showed 1 pound down. When I weight myself, I do it first thing in the morning (well, after going to the toilet), undressed, and with the scale always at the same position.
Good, I'm losing the excess water. But I know, I have to keep drinking it and keep my mineral level up, and must not forget to take supplements after my first daily meal.
Had my green tea with ½ teaspoon of guarana powder. In a fasted state, I did a HIIT, spinning. Own a spinner at home, so, as it was gloomy and wet out, I couldn't do a mountain bike ride. Plus, I needed to get to work quickly. But instead of doing one round of HIIT, I did three, which resulted in a 30-minute spinning activity. I just felt so energetic!
11:00 am. Prepared myself Egg Puffs (by Ketogenicwoman.com), using ¾ of each ingredient (3 eggs). These are sooooo much fun to eat, and awesomely quick to make! Can't wait to make them again and serve them to my egg-loving dearest one asap!
1:00 pm. Decided to call this meal lunch, because it was the highest in calories for the day. But, it was actually a dessert! I made a Mascarpone Roll. It's a simple recipe, and you can play around with the filling as you wish (especially when not on the egg fast). I wanted to watch out my cheese intake for the day, so I only went for one tablespoon of mascarpone.
By now, I'd had 5 eggs, 3 tablespoon fat, and 4 ounces cheese.
Snack followed at 4:45 pm. Had Egg Salad (by I Breath I'm hungry), using up 3 hard-boiled eggs. I love this salad as it's simple to prepare, especially if you've boiled a few eggs in advance. I think it's a nice prep meal, too, if it's not too hot wherever you work. Added cheese crisps to it. Just used a slice of cheddar (1 ounce), cut it into 4 triangles, and nuked them in the microwave for 1.5 minutes.
Surprisingly, I didn't feel much hunger on this day. But I did have to consume something after I had returned home from running some errands, although it was 9:00 pm. They say no eggs 3 hours before sleep, so I took an ounce of cheese spread (by a relatively unknown brand), which is by default mixed with butter. I count this as ½ Tbsp butter and ½ ounce cheese (it adds up to less than an ounce, I know, but the ratio comes close when I read the label).
Outcome of the Egg Fast Day 2:
On this day I had:
- 8 eggs
- 5.5 tablespoon fat
- 5.5 ounce cheese
Oops, there I went and screwed it up! I didn't consume enough fat! What led me to go wrong was that I hadn't taken the time to plan my meals in advance. Plus, I didn't feel too hungry on this day. Maybe I should've gulped down 2 tablespoon of fat before bedtime, but ... Well, I'd rather just see what happens tomorrow.
See, what happened on Day 1. Or continue to Day 3, Day 4, or Day 5.

You eat your meals so off schedule. I never eat dinner after 6 pm….you are eating at 8 and 9 pm…lunch at 4pm? Breakfast should be eaten within an hour of waking up. So around 7 or 8 am not 11:00. Do you work graveyard?
Used to work night shifts, yes. Also intermittent fasting every now and then.
Hello! I work in an office with no cooking facilities and I am on the road a lot. I am very interested in started an egg fast, but I am thinking that the lunch time meal might be difficult, unless I carry hard boiled eggs. Can this be accompanied by an ounce of cheese, with the cheese being the "good fat" ??? Or is butter considered to be the only good fat?? Thank you in advance!

Hi, Michele! Yeah, I know, I sometimes carry hard-boiled eggs to work, too, even on the road. Well, if butter is too impractical on such occasions, sure, use some high-quality very low-carb cheese. I see no problem with that if you tolerate cheese well.
Thank you for sharing ur journey. As I understand you do IF along w keto. Read that w egg fast one needs to eat an egg 30min after waking. Its not in my fasting window. Will it still work?

Hi. You are welcome.
If you read through my whole dairy, I mention that I break the rule of eating 30 minutes after waking. I usually work out fasted, so eating eggs before a workout is a no-go for me. So, I wouldn't worry about not eating early. It's just an arbitrary "rule" and every individual has different needs.
