Post-diet care

Ideally, the egg diet should be accompanied by a nutritionist, who will be able to better indicate the appropriate amount of eggs for each meal. In addition, after 2 weeks of diet, it is necessary to maintain a balanced diet with the preferential use of fresh foods, avoiding the consumption of processed foods.

To avoid the yoyo rebound effect, it is also important to regularly engage in physical activity, such as walking, running…etc depending on your calorie increase.

Side effects and contraindications

People who are not used to having a balanced diet may suffer from an accordion effect; gaining more weight than at the start of the diet. Therefore, this diet should not be considered as long-term regimen, especially if the person has not undergone a period of nutritional rehabilitation.

Additionally, due to the low amount of carbohydrates, some people may experience easy fatigue, nausea, especially during the first week.

This diet should not be prepared by people with medical conditions for whom excessive protein intake is contraindicated, such as people with kidney disease or chronic kidney disease, or who are allergic or intolerant to eggs.

Is the boiled egg diet unhealthy?

Mono diets are often unsustainable thus unhealthy. They’re relatively relatively one-sided, but eggs are healthy since they contain all vitamins except vitamin C and, in combination with the other foods, temporarily cover the nutrient requirements. In comparison to other mono diets, the boiled egg diet can therefore be maintained for two weeks without major health complications, though it’s not recommend or healthy to maintain over 2 weeks.

Egg diet conclusion

As said previously, the egg diet does lead to nutrient deficiencies if followed for more than 14 days. Before starting the boiled egg diet make sure to consult with a doctor or nutritionist to ensure a healthy regimen for both the short, and long-term.

  1. I would be trying the egg diet. I am not a meal prep person and neither do I always find cooking on the go a convenient way. This plan looks like an easy, fast and quick to make meal and that is something I am very excited about. Would you be kind enough to make a post on a typical fruit diet.

  2. I am in the first week of my diet and I must say it was a little difficult at first but it is so much better now. I lost a few pounds which I am so happy about and surely seeing this diet plan through. Thanks.

  3. Hello,
    I must commend this diet plan. I could not go through all 14 days but I noticed significant changes; I felt a whole lot lighter, my folds reduced and interestingly I did not experience the typical after lunch slump where I felt a drop in energy.

  4. 2020 was a really hard year for me and I put on a lot of weight. I made a decision to get my self healthy and fit again. I tried a few diet plans and didn’t lose as much as I wanted to, then i tried this diet plan and made massive improvements in the last week. Thankful for the change .

  5. I have seen a few diet plans online and I always wanted to try it out. However, they were not budget friendly. I am so glad to have finally found a the egg diet! very similar to Atkins or keto diets.
