i lost like a lb a day!! :S but it's not exactly maintainable - I now take a bite of a boiled egg and feel like a bulimic :S...weird!

It's like low carb/carb cycling/calorie cycling AND low fat all rolled into one! I worked it out to less than 1200 cals a day...

and contrary to beliefs there weren't any whiffy problems :D.... aside from when you came off it, then a couple of days of erm...bottom burps :D

I did something similar years ago when young... with my Mum... eventually I was sneaking swiss rolls into my bedroom...

Back to the subject in hand... eggs... this time I've made a conscious effort to stick (mostly) to the 2 egg yolks but I have three three times a week I'm afraid. (Cholesterol checked each year, and I'm fine!).

I put a whole one in my muffins which doesn't help... then often have one at lunchtime... then there are the baked egg custards three nights a week... I try not to have an egg daytimes if I'm having an eggy pudding... hey, but life happens...!!

I love eggs and I buy them from a local farmer so I'm sure they're cholesterol free ;)
(ahem!)

"Constipation is more likely to occur if you have a diet low in fibre, yet high in fats, found in foods such as cheese, eggs and meat."

I rest my case Your Lordship...

It then goes on to tell you what foods to eat to ensure you DON'T get constipated... suffice to say that they're all BANNED!

"Good sources of fibre include fresh fruit and vegetables, brown bread, brown rice and potatoes with their jackets."
Constipation


You know what? Maybe I should do a week of that diet to shake things up after my holiday (I'll miss the oatbran though!)
