The boiled egg diet (-3 kg in 7 days?) |

The boiled egg diet is a restrictive weight loss method. This recovery formula appeals to those looking to “lose weight fast.” But the boiled egg diet is a formula that should be used in a specific context. Explanations, contraindications and getting off the egg diet, I’ll explain everything to you.

The egg consists of 2 edible parts: the albumen and the yolk. Let’s start by describing these 2 parts, knowing that the white is mainly consumed in this diet.

protein, protein

The albumen is part of the egg that protects the yolk. It consists of 90% water. Among the other ingredients there are mainly proteinsthe most important is called ovalbumin, but also lysozymes. This protein is of interest because of its coagulation and surface-active properties.

So it is she who allows it stabilize the foam of protein.

Only with 48 calories/100 g, Albumen is food very easy. It provides almost 90% water 10% protein and no fat !

In terms of micronutrients, protein appears as a interesting source of vitamins B2, B3 and selenium. 100g of protein is enough to cover 25% of the recommended daily allowance of these two vitamins.

The yolk

The yolk is the part of the egg that serves as the egg food source for the development ofembryo. It is held in suspension in the albumen by twisted filaments of cell tissue called “chalazas”.

The yolk consists of proteinone third fatespecially fromunsaturated fatty acids. An egg yolk contains on average 0.25 grams of cholesterol. It is therefore wrong to systematically associate and suppress oocytes with hypercholesterolemia.

The yolk represents a excellent source of ironbut this is nonheme and covered 15% of the daily intake recommended, especially for children and women who need it most. Along with cod liver oil and butter, eggs are one of the best sources of food Vitamin A.

The more colored the yolk, the richer it is in vitamin A (100g of yolk covers 71% of a woman’s vitamin A intake). The yolk also provides a significant amount of vitamin D (20% of the recommended intake for 100g of yolk).

Hard boiled egg diet

On the egg diet, we mainly eat protein, vegetable broth and low-fat dairy products.

  • Egg whites, combined or not with 1 whole egg, provide proteins of good biological value that prevent muscle wasting and ensure good satiety.
  • Vegetable broth moisturizes and prevents vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
  • 0% fat dairy (you can add cinnamon or vanilla powder to flavor it) provides calcium absorption and complements the protein in the egg.
The Egg Diet or Boiled Egg Diet – Dr. Jean Michel Cohen

This is a very quick diet sequence. This “express” formula aims to make you lose about 3kg in 1 week and with such an attractive promise you really need to explain who it is for and state that it is part of a weight loss protocol and weight resumption, which takes place automatically.

In practice :

Breakfast :

  • 2 or 3 egg whites without the yolk (the number 3 is preferable for men).
  • A dairy with 0% coffee, tea, water, infusion at will and no sugar.

Having lunch :

  • 2 or 3 egg whites (especially for men) + 1 whole egg with the yolk.
  • Vegetable broth to taste.
  • 0% dairy products 250 ml water with lemon juice.


  • 2 or 3 egg whites (especially for men) + 1 whole egg with the yolk.
  • Vegetable broth to taste.
  • 0% dairy products 250 ml water with lemon juice.
  • It is necessary to drink 1.5 l to 2 l of water during the day, preferably mineral water.

This diet is not a technique to be made a habit, but a recovery system to be monitored and used on specific occasions.

When should you start the hard boiled egg diet?

  • A medical emergencyB. before surgery or other events that require a quick loss of a few pounds.
  • In case of stagnation/Demotivation despite serious monitoring of program to increase weight loss and morale.
  • in case of an special event (Wedding…).

This diet is not for everyone due to its very restrictive side. You must be in very good health. Therefore, the egg diet is not recommended in the following cases:


  • Diabetes, especially insulin dependent,
  • pregnant and lactating women,
  • people suffering from compulsive eating
  • in case of severe cardiac arrhythmias,
  • liver or kidney damage,
  • Eating disorder,
  • intense sport.

If in doubt, do not hesitate to ask your nutritionist or doctor if there are any contraindications.

After the egg diet

After the egg diet, a Rehab is essential. Because when we suddenly return to our food rebalancing, at least 3 pounds of weight recovery occurs. It is therefore necessary to switch to the lightning diet (at least 900 kcal) for at least 8 days in this order. Then we continue our program for at least 1 month.

If this formula is planned around 1 week of eggs followed by 1 week of 900kcal, stay tuned.

If you feel that tracking is too difficult, it is possible:

  • to shorten the course duration: 3 days eggs + 3 days 900 kcal for example instead of 7 + 7.
  • When cravings, eat the vegetables that the broth was made from.

In any case, this recovery option stays on time. It is strongly recommended to drink well at the same time, not to increase physical activity in the same period and keep the slimming diary.

This sequence should not be repeated more than once every two months.
