Patience will pay off in a tighter physique by the time you reach your weight loss goal. May 7, at 7: But then look at my diet updates throughout the weeks that I was chronicling my last attempt at this diet. Hi again Trevor, thanks again for your quick response. Kale, celery, selantra, cucumbe and sometimes a carrot or apple. November 20, at
It is enjoyable and my favourite in this range. Lydia Thu Dec 22, at 3: I really like this product more than the L - carnitine rapid shakes I find I am less bloated and less hungry along with less cravings for sugary food which probably due to the garcinia cambogia, I like it that it's low sugar and low carb I am already seeing results despite being 3 days I already lost 3kgs.
I would love to try the vegan rapid shakes but have not see these in my area to pick up and purchase but so far I really like this one with almond milk: Lisa Wed Oct 12, at Hey could you do a low sugar one without the garcinia cambogia in it and use the carnipure L - carnitine and the green tea extract that would be awesome!!!
I can't have garcinia cambogia had an allergic reaction to this and it would be nice to have the choice between both for others that maybe in the same boat but want the lower sugar. If you have any other health conditions outside of simple obesity i. But if you are simply overweight with no associated conditions or any health conditions, for that matter then this diet can help you quickly shed some fat.
Sometimes a bit too quickly. As with any weight loss diet, the burden is on you to check the facts and make an informed decision. Good luck finding a doctor to sign off on this diet!
I wanted to take your opinion on low carb whole foods verse low carb processed. Instead of chicken breast eat bone-in skin on chicken thighs. Instead of lowfat cheese eat full fat cheese.
A low carb diet MUST be high fat in order to be nutritious and satiating. And extremely low fat high protein diets can even be deadly. And one other thing. Then report back and let me know how it worked.
Anyways, I had a few questions:. Is that necessarily true? I just completed my first month of Insanity and I wanted to stick to a diet that would give me great results along with great energy!
Hey Miguel, thanks for your kind words! So to answer your questions. Fattier is better here. And while ground beef is not the ideal choice of meat for this diet, I can certainly sympathize with the cost issue. But try to get in a nice fatty steak every now and again.
Grass fed beef is FAR healthier than grain fed. That said, no, it is not necessary to eat grass fed beef. Unless one of the local farms happens to offer some at a reasonable price, that is. Grain fed beef will not make this diet any less effective. Steak, pan fried in bacon grease, and topped with 4 eggs, also fried in bacon grease, with yolks running all over the steak.
Grilled steak also is great, especially over coal and smoked with mesquite. Steak in bacon grease is both fantastic AND easy. Always cook it rare to medium rare. A couple of my favorites are to season the steak with cumin and chili powder and the eggs too , or to season it with Montreal Seasoning.
The only issue is that my energy levels are shot during the day. I eat in the mornings and do Insanity at night..
Regarding your energy levels. Especially when combined with Insanity. Give it a couple weeks or so to see how you adapt. Just stick with water. Add a bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice if you want some refreshing flavor.
That said, the fewer exceptions to the protocol the better. So just be mindful of how much cheese and what kind you are adding a bit of cheddar is just fine, a pile of Kraft Singles not so much. Can I have the glass of red wine in the evening or is the red wine only allowed along with the meal? You can have the wine whenever you want Louise. And hopefully, the diet will get a bit easier. I stopped smoking about 2 years ago and have steadily gained 25kgs over that period.
My weight does peak and trough every 10 years or so and in I did the eggs and grapefruit diet, which was very successful for me and lost 20kgs. I started this diet again 4 days ago and have lost 2kgs. However, whilst trawling the web for info on it I stumbled across your blog which has definitely caught my interest and I am thinking of having a crack at this next week. I am a little confused though! What am I missing? If it is 1 meal, when do you eat — morning or evening?
Also can you eat any other type of red meat — eg: Or should you only stick to beef steaks? I can understand your confusion regarding some of the comments.
People are gonna do what they want. I lay out in no uncertain terms what my protocol is. But then look at my diet updates throughout the weeks that I was chronicling my last attempt at this diet. Whatever adjustments you need to make to help you stick with the diet are fine in my book. So if you need another meal or two per day, then I say go for it. Just try to stay true to the spirit of the protocol. That said, the reason this protocol is so effective is because it taps into the power of a ketogenic diet AND intermittent fasting.
When you remove the intermittent fasting part of the plan, it becomes just another ketogenic diet. They just need consistent weight loss. As to your question regarding what kind of meats are acceptable — yes, lamb and pork are both fine. When your carbs are limited as much as they are on this diet, you will need all that fat to keep you fueled. I was thinking i might have some eggs for breakfast, miss lunch and then steak and eggs for dinner?
I like to kick back at the end of a day with a huge-ass meal then just lie around feeling sick for awhile before I go to bed. Same for two meals per day. So if you want eggs for breakfast then steak and eggs for dinner, I say go for it. I love your no nonsense approach Trevor — it is very funny.
Just checking in with an update on my Fish and Eggs diet. Mon — Fri my meal is usually about 8 oz of wild salmon cooked in lots of butter or coconut oil and eggs, sometimes I add half an avocado and I have also started adding a packet of Artisana Coconut Butter as a sort of dessert — lots of good fats and low carb. For the first two weeks I enjoyed a glass of red wine most evenings but for the week just passed I omitted the red wine completely and I have seen faster results this way.
Right now I think it will almost be difficult to go back to eating more often during the day. Will update again in a few weeks. It seems like you were going strong. I like that you were able to adapt the diet to your needs and schedule without stressing about it.
I love reading all your posts, very funny and really informative! Keep telling it like it is. I am an electrician but now have an office job so not burning anything at work anymore. My wife is 36 weeks pregnant and I want to be in shape for photos when the baby comes. Also, in Australia summer is coming so I can almost hear the beach calling me.
At my wedding last February, I was just under 80 kgs and a lean mean machine! I woke up hungover this morning and went to the shops to get my steak, eggs and butter. For breakfast I had 5 eggs, and a g steak rare. Do you think I should do this once or twice a day?
Hey Pat, forgive me for my very late response. Fill me in if you get the chance. I watched a documentary on juicing and have been hooked.
Kale, celery, selantra, cucumbe and sometimes a carrot or apple. I add flax seed for fibre and chia seeds.. I chug this down with a top sirloin fried in a fuckload of butter.
No constipation due to organic flax seed.. Again, a mother fuckload of butter. So long as the diet keeps working then modifications are just fine. And you seemed to have done that. I know my response is late in coming Hail, but yes. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you — I was away for awhile. Cramping is not a sign of salt depletion. It is a sign of potassium depletion. I had a beautiful baby 10 weeks ago via c-section.
Decided to give this diet a go to get rid of the baby weight which is now only a couple of pounds, but want to lose more anyway! I am absolutely stuffed to no end! Any more and I may have been physically sick! Day one, steak and two eggs and plain water for me. Will post back next Wednesday with any weight loss updates.
But I would caution about dieting so soon after having a baby. Steak and eggs are good and healthy foods, no doubt, but the diet as prescribed is pretty restrictive — whatever deficiencies you may encounter will affect the quality of your milk. You should probably check with your doctor before getting too deep into this diet.
I had 2 cracks at the diet. First time was 3 weeks at it, I then had 2 weeks of while my wife had the baby and then another 4 weeks at it. I found it really hard for the first week with stomach cramps, feeling a bit dizzy etc. I can only think of 3 possible things I may have done wrong and if be interested in your comments: I may have carbed up too much on my day off, I went pretty nuts with toast, muffins, bread rolls, potatoes, the list goes on, I did not hold back!!!
I sometimes added some Worcestershire sauce to my steak while cooking. This was to make it bearable. I think it has very little sugar in it though. I had some pretty crazy carb-ups myself last time I did the diet, but I was also training my ass off.
You gotta earn your carbs, as they say. But it could just very well be that this is not the diet for you. Not everyone responds to low carb. Have you since tried any other diets? I know this response is half a decade late, but for anyone reading this today: If you get good walking and standing in, you will lose a bit of weight.
If you work out with weights and cardio, you will cut fast. Adding salad particularly spinach and nightshade veggies like tomatoes seems to stall the weight loss. Be very careful with consuming vegetable matter of any kind.
Careful with milk, cream, cheese, and all dairy except for high quality butter. You need to be doing cardio if you consume dairy during on days. You can have a pat of butter as a snack gross but sometimes necessary. Not even lo-cal fruit drinks. For me, and I have heard from many others, that diet soda destroys the value of the diet. You have to quit diet soda completely. Substitute high-quality coffee, with a bit of spice and some butter.
Diet soda is a two-week detox, sorry. For a while I was using stevia and cream cheese as a dessert. Cottage cheese is seemingly off limits too. Be very careful with cheat days. You should probably use these times to eat plant matter before you go after a pizza or donuts.
You need cheat days, or you WILL stall. Learn to use spices. Dash makes an excellent line of tools for your arsenal. Tiny amounts of other sauces are ok. Hot sauce is ok but nothing with sugar. Yes that means Sriracha. Lemon juice is ok in small quantities, vinegar seems to be fine, and ACV can actually help also helps with cravings. If keeping on diet is really hard, and the idea of eating nauseates you, skip the meal and wait until the next meal.
Wait until your appetite comes back. You can use forskolin if you need to curb appetite. Hello Trevor, I would really like to try this out. I recently lost about 45 lbs.
I would like to lose another 15 at least. Can I use egg beaters instead of eggs? Can I wait to get down to my weight and then start exercising? Sorry for so many questions. Thank you so much for all of your information Frank. As to how long it will take to lose another 15, who can say? If so, what kind of training? Are you an office worker or are you on your feet all day?
And so many more. You should have a better idea than I do regarding how fast you have, and how fast you may lose weight. Low fat, low carb, high protein diets are NOT healthy. But keep in mind that hamburger meat is best kept as an occasional substitute for steak, rather than a total replacement. Are you satisfied with your meal and losing weight?
Maybe add another egg or two. Not losing weight and feeling stuffed? Then cut back a bit. It does take some experimentation to find out the right amount of food for you. As for Egg Beaters, the answer is no. They are simply processed egg whites with a bunch of added crap to make them seem a bit more like egg. It is an extremely unnatural product and will not work with this diet.
Remember, you need the fats that are found in the egg yolks. And the cholesterol, as well. But you can start exercising any time you wish. Hi Trevor, Thanks so much for your reply and for the info.
Now that you have told me part of the problem I can at least continue on and maybe have some progress! I was using egg beaters for about 5 days and it was not working but I was blaming the hamburger meat.???
I will not do that now! I have a very hard time losing weight, always have my whole life. Three years ago when I was at I tried Hi intensity burst training for over 2 months with a coach and lost only 8 pounds. I guess I am proof of that. I lost the 45 lbs mostly by Atkins style and just better eating habits but now for 6 months I am stuck and I want to get it over with and stay there for life!
Is there something other than eggs that can be used? Protein shakes, cottage cheese, fats, nuts, cheese? Thanks again for all of your help. Considering you had so much success on an Atkins style low carb diet, maybe you should continue with a more standard low carb plan. Steak and eggs is a very limited food plan. Hi again Trevor, thanks again for your quick response. I would never point the finger or blame someone who is trying to help another person. As far as the Meds go, its for a problem that I have had for quite a while its called Cluster migraine headaches.
Extremely rare but very extremely painful to the point that they have been also called suicide headaches. It has been under control for over 10 years but I can never go off of the medications.
I am always on a low carb menu right now, everyday is below 40 carbs. Calories are only around to I have read some about the paleo primal but your steak and eggs sounded so easy that I thought I would try this right away to knock off the 15 pounds.
I feel like once I do that I can stick with a good exercise regimen. Right after Thanksgiving I will do your plan and let you know how it works. Thank you once again for all of your information. Thank you for doing this! But fish is high in protein and fat, but maybe not as much as steak. Hey Stefan, thanks for the compliment! It all depends on whether you get enough protein and fat. As always though, the only true way to know if this would work for you is to try it out.
Experience is all that counts. Louise, a few comments above yours, was doing the fish and eggs thing and she seemed to be having some success. Just wanted to add from my personal experience with the salmon and eggs diet.
This definitely worked for me. I ate a very large piece of salmon and two soft boiled eggs at lunch time each day and in the second week I added half an avocado and some raw coconut butter. I went off the strict salmon and eggs diet at the end of August but it was the kick start I needed to continue with a healthier diet and a fitness plan. I am still eating lower carb now, getting my carbs mostly from brown rice and sticking with salmon salad for lunch and something light for dinner.
Thanks for the great update Louise. And, even better, that it spurred a real change towards a healthier lifestyle. Sometimes, these crash diets CAN lead to lasting improvements in health, far beyond just the immediate weight loss. It all depends on how one approaches things. Keep up the good work! So yes, this diet is perfectly acceptable for you. But since you had so much success with low carb before, then put the weight back on, I think you may need to think longer term than the quick weight loss this diet was designed for.
Yo-yo dieting will get you nowhere. Perhaps you should try a Real Food approach instead. It may be a better bet for you in the long term. Btw, is the glass of red wine per day a required part of the diet and nutrition? Or is it just like a daily indulgence that is allowed? Sounds like a good plan Stefan. I hope you reach your goal. Feel free to skip it if you choose. Hey Ed, glad you like the blog. It adds just enough variety to help stick with the diet. It helps me, for sure. However, the wine is optional.
Thanks for the clarification. Two more questions, so I eat what I want sat and sunday? When should i work out? Should I be losing weight more or should I focus on size shrink? Thank you in advance. Hey Ed, Sat and Sun are free days, provided that on one of those days you eat steak and eggs. You can work out whenever suits you. The best way to judge your progress is by taking pictures every week — front, side and back. Same time each day. The camera never lies.
But let say your weight is around lbs. Its probably the best one that speaks on this diet. And maybe only getting grams of protein from just steak.
Only hard core weight lifters need that much protein. Your body should take care of the rest. So the question is, can a person lose, who has to lose 50 lbs, can start losing 1 lb a day? Or it all depends? Hey Ed, it definitely depends. You may lose one pound a day in the beginning.
For a few days, maybe a week. And much of that will be water loss. No one can sustain a 1 pound a day loss for very long. Would this diet work if i am just snowboarding? I am an instructor and ride pretty hard, hours a day everyday. Just came across your site, tons of info and a great read. So I have a couple questions… 1. Am I still able to take my caffeine supplements? Do I stop drinking my protein shake after workouts?
Yes, this diet could work for you. Nothing is guaranteed when it comes to dieting, however. At the very least, it would get you started on the right foot. Best just to try it out and see how you respond. No energy drinks, or anything like that. I suggest dropping the protein shake.
In addition, even though your shake is low carb, processed whey protein is very insulinogenic. This diet works by keeping your insulin levels low and stable — a protein shake will throw that off kilter.
Besides, the idea behind this diet is to stick to simple unprocessed whole foods steak and eggs. Processed supplements have no place in this diet.
I have been attempting to get fit and drop weight for quite a while now, and the more research I do on this particular diet, the more I think that this is going to be the absolute easiest and most effective.
I plan on starting this as soon as I get to the supermarket!! Can you use a bit of fresh herbs and garlic to flavor it up the steak and eggs? And I know you have to drink a LOT of water to flush everything out—can I enhance it with a little squeeze of lime or lemon juice? And can you substitute the steak with fatty tuna or salmon cooked in olive oil every once in a while to help with the monotony and to get some heart-healthy fats included?
And if I am drinking coffee with cream is it heavy whipping cream or half and half that you want to use in it? My question is about the addition of Rosemary. I am at day 5 and 6lbs down on two steak and eggs per day but going to switch to your plan next week so I can enjoy weekends and have some wine.
I do not drink any alcohol. I would want to substitute carbonated water for the wine. And I run for about an hour and a half in the mornings with maybe some insanity an night. Please and thank you. Please advise f I can replace the steak with pork rashers for a week. I sister bought a bucket load of pork rashers and they need to be eaten, or wont i lose weight if i eat it. There is quite a bit of fat on the rashers if it is fat that I should be eating.
Piece of writing writing is also a excitement, if you be familiar with then you can write or else it is complex to write. The diet I follow is…. Loving it so far! Should have me ready for beach season in no time. Hi there to all, the contents present at this site are in fact amazing for people knowledge, well, keep up the good work fellows. Can you use ground beef? Also can you use coconut oil to cook rather than butter?
