You've got carbs there, just saying wink

The I breathe I'm hungry blog has guide for the purists Egg Fast if you're going hard core. It also tentatively explains why this burns fat super normally through choline, L-methionine, caffeine, coconut oil, caesin, fat and pretty much nothing else whatsoever.

I've done this, boosting the thermogenic thing even further using lots of black pepper and capsaicin (as Tabasco). Averaged 1g carb intake per day using MFP to track. No joke.

The weight loss was insane. Sure some was water but I'm an old hand at low carbing and can spot the difference.

5 days Max. Supplement. 3-4 litres water. No cheating. Be prepared to sweat big time all the time confused. Most important is to transition back to "normal " low carb eating else you will put it all back on. I dread to think what would happen if stopping and reverting to conventional carbs.

It's as boring as hell, but no hunger and phenomenal weight-loss in a very short time. I definitely don't recommend this except for weight stalls or in emergency situations.

Best of luck!

14% carbs in peas. Compare to spinach 3.6% and courgette 3.1%. But if its still working for you then that doesn't matter. You've just reminded me I need to get a spiralizer!
