Today, I've decided to try something that's not in the Pounds and Inches book. I've heard from a forum that I frequent about a Phase 2 Egg Day. It takes the place of the Apple Day and is ONLY used for breaking a stall. The gist of it is that you eat 6 WHOLE eggs through out the day - 3 for lunch, 3 for dinner.
For me, I eat 6 eggs a day, for a total of 447 calories for the eggs. Along about mid-morning, I boil all 6 eggs. While they are still warm, I slice three of them with my egg slicer, season with salt and pepper, and eat them with a fork. For some reason that seems more filling to me than just eating them whole, adding salt & pepper as I eat. This usually holds me until dinner time.
I'm never hungry when I do an egg day and I'm usually down at least one pound the following morning.
As a cautionary tale...do not abuse this! I did abuse this during my last round and now that I'm on P3 my beloved P3 egg days won't work anymore. The first time I used it I was going to be traveling and stuck in a hospital all day so it was more of a convenience thing, but then I did it I think 2 more times just to try to get down to a certain weight, and a little because I'm lazy too and can buy bags of peeled cooked hard boiled eggs at my Trader Joe's and I get really sick of meat by the end of P2.
Thanks for starting this thread Regina b/c I really didn't put 2 and 2 together until right now, but I think this is why regular egg days aren't working for me anymore.
