I am on day five, the last day, of my egg fast. I am surprisingly not tired of eggs but I think some of it is because of recipes like these salted caramel cheesecake crepes! They are so rich and full of flavor that I swear I’d be happy ordering them in a restaurant.
So the first two days of the egg fast I dropped 7 pounds. Day three I only dropped 1 pound, and day 4 was just half a pound. I’ll let you know what the final tally is but dropping 8 1/2 pounds in four days isn’t shabby. I realize that a lot of that is water but hey, if it makes my clothes loose and my measurements smaller, who cares what it is?
As long as it doesn’t creep back on.
I am going to transition off the egg fast carefully. Tomorrow I’ll eat egg fast friendly meals and snacks as usual until dinner and then I’ll have 1/2 cup creamed spinach and some grilled chicken breast. The next day I’ll have an egg fast friendly breakfast and then a protein shake for lunch, and 1/2 cup salad and chicken breast for dinner. I’ll stay on that for a couple of days to make sure that I’m not going to gain all the weight back overnight. The main thing that I’ve missed on my egg fast is protein shakes! I could live on those things with a salad alongside… and the occasional bacon cheeseburger.
My biggest issue has been drinking enough water. I am terrible about that even when I am working out. I may go through 50 ounces of water at the gym but then I’m lucky to drink another 10 ounces or so at home. That may be why I haven’t dropped more weight – my water intake dropped significantly after the second day.
I am determined to lose at least 10 more pounds before I go to France in April. I am planning to do another egg fast the first week of March to see if that works as well as this one has.
These crepes are amazing, if I do say so myself. When you are cooking them take them off the heat and roll them when the top is set but still soft. It makes a rich filling that’s totally addictive. The topping is creamy and all together the dish tastes a lot like a cheese danish. I will definitely be making these low carb salted caramel cheesecake crepes on a regular basis. I’ll change out the syrups, I think, to give a bigger variety to the flavors. My brain is spinning with possibilities!
