the boiled egg diet

hey friends,

how's everyone's first week of 2017 so far? if i may be honest, i feel as though my first week wasn't off to a great start. but i have the rest of the year to be a bad mutha. let's see, i did kick off my fitness journey by doing an hour of cardio this past week and going to start incorporating weights this week. 

i also wanted to share that i'm thinking of trying out this 2-week boiled egg diet. you might think i'm a nutcase but the only reason why i'm thinking of trying this out is because I LOVE EGGS and it's a simple 2-week meal plan. you all are aware that i'm not at all the healthiest eater in the world, so sticking to this "diet" will be something different! i do know that an egg is loaded with all types of vitamins, minerals, fats, proteins and other nutrients.

the major keys to this diet are the following:

  • drink 6-8 glasses of water, which keeps the body hydrated and  helps prevent cravings
  • limit intake of sugar and salt
  • no sodas or alcohol
  • avoid fast food

it is said that it's possible for someone to lose up to 24lbs during this diet. i'm not getting my hopes up that high when it comes to the lbs i expect to lose. any amount would be great. i'm simply doing this to help eliminate waste and toxins in my body to help lead me to a cleaner eating habit.
