Here is a quick crack at 5 days on the keto diet. Breakfast: Use two 3-egg omelets cooked in 2 tablespoons of olive oil or butter. Top with mushrooms, kale, asparagus, and cooked lean white meat. Dinner: Spicy tuna sushi with green mangoes, red bell pepper, and sesame dressing. Lunch: Leftovers from the day before. Enjoy!
What do we have here, more diets? And these are not just low carb diets either. There is the South Beach diet, low GI diets (gluten free and soy-free), and low carb diets like Dr. Davidson’s diet that recommend adding eggs to your diet. These diets all work pretty well for some people but the one that is getting all the press lately is the keto egg diet and for good reason.
To begin, what you will need for your to egg diet day is about two to three dozen fresh eggs, a couple of pounds of cold cuts of cheddar cheese, and sour cream or yogurt. You do not want to use cream cheese. If you must, use a low fat or skim milk cheese. For the salad, you will want to place your eggs on top of about half a medium size romaine lettuce leaves. Add a layer of chopped mixed greens and then about a half a cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
For dinner you will again want to start off with a fresh salad of romaine lettuce and mixed greens topped with some shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Then, for dessert you will want to add about two cups of grapefruit juice to a bowl of raw spinach, and then add in two to three tablespoons of sour cream or yogurt. These are just some of the ingredients for your first 14-day keto egg diet meal plan. This is by far one of the easiest and delicious ways to lose weight and get fit.
For lunch you will want to take a bowl of mixed greens, a cup of skim milk or yogurt, and then add in one tablespoon of grated parmesan cheese. For dinner you will want to load yourself with an entire wheat roll, slice up an apple, and add a spoonful of sliced ham along with a sliced medium sized piece of avocado. For dessert, you will want to add in another egg, a handful of grapes, and some sliced blueberries.
By making healthy vegetable choices you can significantly lower the amount of calories you end up consuming while still enjoying a delicious meal. When it comes to eggs though, as with everything else, moderation is the key. Eating too many eggs can be just as bad for you as drinking a glass of milk with a dozen scallions inside of it! Eggs contain a surprising amount of fat which leads to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke, so you should be careful about eating too many of them.
The trick to losing weight while on this diet is to find one or two “must have” foods every day that will give you the energy you need to continue your daily activities throughout the day. You will need to look for foods that offer at least 10 calories per serving, and preferably higher. Foods that are high in fats, carbohydrates, and protein are going to be your best friend. By focusing on high quality protein sources you can greatly increase your daily intake of healthy foods that contribute to the building of muscle and healthy tissues. The key to losing weight while on this diet is to eat a variety of high-protein foods, and to make sure you eat one or two of these types of foods each day.
Both diets have their pros and cons. If you have a good level of physical fitness, and if you are reasonably healthy, the Keto Egg diet might work for you. If you suffer from chronic diseases, heart problems, hypertension, or high blood pressure you should definitely consult with your physician before starting any new diet. As far as diets go, the Grapefruit Diet has many advantages and very few disadvantages. Both diets are great ways to shed some pounds, though the Grapefruit Diet is clearly better for those who want to lose weight quickly.
