- Noticed am feeling full of energy
- Able to train harder/do more reps
- Working out 2 hours minimum each day + 6 mile walk -- a lot easier than it was at the start of January!No longer exhausted after my walk
- Starting the day with Fried eggs and plenty of FAT keeps me full for at least 4-6 hours.
- Being deep in Ketosis keeps ALL hunger away
Have been using my stepper at home quite a lot for 1 hour periods, find this is easy to do whilst watching television, adding in weights really helps avoid any boredom. Definitely worthwhile!

Bit of background, Vegetarian of 12 years, Fruitarian of 1 year, followed DANDR Atkins to loose 42lb now cycling egg fasting in order to get fit, ripped and ready for summer!
The choice to change my diet radically was mainly for weight loss, I probably wasn’t anywhere near as active as I am now, but my weight was sitting still and I felt it was worth trying a different way of life for a short period. Been low carb since August 2008.
I can’t tolerate a huge amount of dairy, am playing around with doing this with and without. Shall see how that goes! The decision to go back to being a lacto-ova vegetarian after being a strict vegan was a pretty big deal for me, I think some sort of middle ground is best!
For the last 10 weeks have been cycling Egg fasting with Stillman’s diet, the next 4 weeks aims to be as low carb as possible, playing around with amounts of fat and seeing the impact this has on weight loss as well as strength during training.
Usually consume 10-15g carbs per day, Aim to keep it as close to ZERO as possible.
Outline of plan for 20/01/2009-20/02/2009
High fat – Sunflower oil, Olive oil, fresh Mayo and Hemp Oil
Unlimited amount of eggs per day
Limited any Meat replacements to 1 serving : 1 burger, 1 “chicken” fillet, 1 sausage etc.
Splenda sweetened Squash or Crystal light, no fizzy drinks
Lactose free cheese – 1 oz once a day. Aiming to cut it down to 1 serving per week
+ Adding in Protein shakes this month – made with water or Soya Milk/ add in Hemp butter etc if needed
Mainly focus is : Eggs and plenty of fat.
In whatever format be that egg creams, egg mayo, devilled eggs, omelet, chocolate eggs, oopsie rolls, quiche etc.
