Our Lady of Weight Loss

Egg Diet. Lose 20 pounds in two weeks.

Egg Diet: Lose 20 Pounds in 2 WeeksAccording to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s recently published personal papers, she thought a slimmer version of herself might project a more powerful persona. In 1979, she purged 20 pounds with the help of 56 eggs!
The 20 Pound Plan!
Thatcher’s CRASH Plan included spinach, grapefruit, steak for dinner, black coffee, tea and, every so often – for good measure – a shot of whisky (taken with meat – otherwise not!).
However, it is believed that it was the one or two eggs for breakfast, coupled with a couple more at lunch time that did the trick!
Would you down 28 eggs a week, for two weeks? Hang the health?
Research shows that not all nutritionists, dieticians, and weight loss gurus are in agreement that eggs have a direct connection to high blood cholesterol. Some studies call the ‘egg’ the perfect protein. Eggs are high in vitamin B12, provide nearly a third of our daily Vitamin D requirement, and they are high in minerals.
Nevertheless, would you down 28 a week? 56 eggs in two weeks? Comment below!

    Cholesterol is an essential component of every cell membrane and important for myriad physiologic functions. When Dr. Uffe Ravnskov, MD PhD looked at the medical literature he found something quite surprising had been documented there. On average people with higher cholesterol live longer. Then again the statin cholesterol lowering drug class alone is a 30 billion dollar a year industry.

  • Lainee61

    FREE RANGE EGGS are te best! Eggs give me LOTS more energy!!

  • Your Name

    Thank you Janice for the miracle weight loss history of eggs,i will surely do a try,i have not included eggs on my diet though but i will follow you,there’s no harm in trying especially that my body’s not so sensitive with too much egg diet,i believe.I’ll get back to you the result,sure i will.

  • sheila garcia

    i appreciate every bit of information here. however one thing that screams of such juvenile and religious insensitivity is the use of the image of the MARY THE MOTHER OF PERPETUAL HELP illustrated with crown of sunny side up eggs and the head of the Baby Jesus heaped with egg also. what does it hoped to achieve by this illustration? what message does it intend to send to all who read this article. I have such a high regard for this site,, however at this instance i feel so offended at the utter disrespect and irreverence of ms taylor.

  • Lynn

    Thanks Janice.
    i thought the illustration was hysterical. You always make me laugh! Yes, i would try ANYTHING if it worked.. I too have heard that there is egg phobia out there and that in truth, there is nothing to be frightened about, as long as they are free-range local… So, i am off to boil up a few. ( Florida in 2 weeks ) xoxoxo

  • biancaneve

    I am really too much disappointed to find out that the image of Our Lady the Virgin Mary is used in such a humiliating and funny way.
    For me it is very offensive for my religious beliefs and all those like me, if you are sure of your recipe then there is no need to use Our Lady’s image…….tell u the truth I got disgusted and cannot give any credit to this page.

  • Suza

    The egg diet is awesome! It completely works too! I did it, by just eating eggs alone for two weeks, and lost over thirty-five pounds!!!!
    It was kind of insane, eating the same thing with water again and again, but it was totally worth it!!! Thanks for writing this for us people!!!!

  • CJ


  • Candi

    I am starting it today the CORRECT way.. Last week I ate only HB eggs and HB eggwhites all day then had a reasonable meal at 6pm with the kids,,but I did it wrong cuz i drank diet pepsi!! Today, i am doing it correct for the next 14 days! no diet soda and only black coffee!! i am excited to post how much i lost!! see you all 14 days!wish me luck

  • Sophia

    Well, it seems those who offered to try the diet and report back have not. It would be nice to have a bit of reported progress. Apparently it did not work for CJ as there was no post on the outcome. Hopefully, Candi will report back with her progress and maybe a synopsis of the diet as a whole so we can be better informed on procedure and effects.

  • Rebecca

    Many years ago, my grandmother had a book by Jack LaLanne, and in the back of it was a diet–two weeks long, and many, many eggs (I want to say probably as many as in the Thatcher diet). He claimed in that book that this diet would “often” result in up to 20 lbs. of weight loss in the first two weeks. After that, there were menus for continuing your diet to your goals–more food choices in those weeks, as I recall.
    I wonder if anyone else has ever seen this diet, and if it is still out there? LaLanne has a website but I could not find any hint of the old “egg diet”–probably because of all the cholesterol hype in the last few years.

  • Your Name Rebecca N

    I have just completed the 2 week ‘Maggie’ diet….my start weight was 9 stone 9 pounds and I am 5′ 4″. At the end of my first week I lost 5 pounds and then a further 6 pounds making my total weight loss 11 pounds…….I am delighted!
    Clearly I did not have a lot to loose so I would presume greater loss could be achieved for those that do.
    Wouldn’t want to do this diet too often as a little concerned about the lack of calcium but fantastic for the run up to Christmas and all those lovely dresses I can now slip into!!

  • Tanya

    I am stating this diet today. I will definitely report back to let you know how it goes. It will be a little more difficult, since Thanksgiving is in two days. (I jut got back from store with the eggs… )

  • Saberlilly

    HI i started this diet two week ago, but mine has been intense, just water and eggs.. i know it’s not “Good” for my health but at this point in my life i really need to change i am a 28 year old mom (single) and i weighed in at 250lbs when i started i’m 239 lbs now! i still have a long long way to go yet (100 more lbs to lose) but i know that i can get there. I eat a boiled or poached eggs for my meals. i know i should be eating other things but after years and years of failed diets thanks to me having PCOS. i got desperate. So i’ll try and check back in in a couple more weeks.

  • pat

    a few years ago I was getting ready for a cruise and I knew I would be a eating a lot of wonderful foods, so I went on the egg diet. and lost 18 lbs in 12 days.
    I vowed never to eat another egg as long as I lived.
    However I love eggs and there are so many ways to fix them if you are creative.
    My favorite for weight loss and the one that seemed to work the best is 3 egg whites cooked in olive oil served smothered in Ketchup mustard and hot sauce with a little goat cheese on top.
    very yummy and it leaves you full with no cravings. do this two or three times a day. with the occassional baked chicken breast or grilled steak.
    don’t go all fancy with it eat tomatoes and apples but be concious of the goal. losing the weight.
    I plan to loose another 6 to eight pounds this week.

  • accidentally lost weight

    When I was a junior in college, I gained weight…. LOL the stress! It was only about 10 lbs but I’m 5’2 so it makes a difference for sure. I didn’t think much about my weight gain and when I went home for the summer I ate eggs because my mom was going through mood swings (from menopause?) and she just stopped cooking or doing any maternal behavior.
    I fried up an egg using 1-2 tsp of oil, about an ounce of cheese, and white rice. I think I ate more rice at first, but it ended up only being about a few spoonfuls at each meal because the egg was much more tastier and filling. I followed this up with coffee using creamer and sugar (nice and sweet). Well, I’m kind of a one track person, so I ate this meal for breakfast, lunch and dinner every 4-5 hours. Not to lose weight though! just kind of forgot about variety. I ended up losing 15 lbs and very happy with my food.
    I’ve tried other foods like vegetables and meat yada yada yada, reallly! I’ve been trying but I don’t feel like myself anymore unless I eat a bunch of fried eggs with white rice every day. I have great energy and I’ve lost about 25 lbs over 1.5 years now which is a plus because I’m a size zero. Seriously though, the more eggs I eat the more weight I lose because everything else just tastes bad, I have to be careful and eat some junk food LOL!
    Note. I’ve tried variations like the boiled or poached egg, or scrambled eggs, or egg whites. The only one that works for me is sunny side up, fried bubbly in oil. I don’t know why.. And I do eat more variety now, but its been icky.

  • Jennifer

    Wow! I’m so impressed with everyone’s success. Congratulations. I’m starting tomorrow–buying my eggs tonight! Looking forward to losing the52lbs I’ve gained recently.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  • victoria

    im starting this die again. i did i a few weeks ago and lost weight and then sliped up and haven gone back since. it worked for me and its so simple, tasty and cheap. definatly the way to go. i dont know why eggs get so much bad press, after all our cavemen ancestors would have eaten eggs all the time and they coped. its all the processed high sugar/carb suff that is killing us. :)

  • Heather

    Wow!! That sounds great. I have a wedding to go to and i have gained 30 lbs in the past year. I was sooooo depressed when i couldn’t fit in even a size 8 dress!! But i am starting this diet know!!!!!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Mena

    Hi, I really want to try this. Can anybody who has lost weight on this tell me some restrictions? I’m guessing only 4 eggs a day, spinach, grapefruit and meat. How much meat? And can I have any other kind of fruit? What about olive oil? Can it be used?


  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Pierra

    This diet seems to rock. This is my 3rd day 3.3 pounds down. I am having the eggs,cucumber, tea for BF and lunch, fish/meat fruit for dinner. Exercise a little. Will keep you posted on the 12th day.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Pierra

    I did promise to keep you posted on my progress. I am on day 9 with 10pds down. How nice my dresses are really lose now, the energy level is better, no headaches, my tummy becoming firmer and I feel just light.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment countrygirl

    I have started today on the egg diet . For breakfast I ate 2 eggs and a grapefruit and water. Im still full 3 hours later. Just a new ajustment i gotta get used to and stick with and i also exercised this morning before work for 30 min. SO hopefully i will get to my 1st goal of loosing 50 pounds. I weigh 215 lbs as of today! Summer is getting closer and its time to loose that weight and fill healthy again! I miss those days. I will post back in a week on how much I’ve lost.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment dennis

    theres no secret about egg’s im on the atkins diet and eat plenty of eggs and have lost 85lbs in 6 months but am getting a little tired of eggs :) maybe its time to switch to cottage cheese

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Bonnie

    Think I’ll try this — past experience shows me that eggs are good for weight loss. I am not worried about the cholesterol — since I am only 4’11” and need to lose at least 70#s — I will probably die of obesity and its complications sooner than I would succumb to high cholesterol and its complications! I’ve tried about everything else, and I just know that there is something out there that will “click” with my system.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment candee73

    This diet sounds good!! One of my best friends bet me that if I lose 15 lbs in 2 weeks he will buy me the perfume and the GUESS watch i’ve been wanting..He did it to motivate me..I am excited!! Going to start this diet tomorrow!! Wish me luck and I will post my results!!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment MamaCole

    Well, I read ALL of the comments and Summer is on it’s way so I guess it’s worth a shot :) I would like to lose 20-30 lbs. I’ll let you know how it goes…maybe, no promises.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment kevom

    the egg diet (all protein/no carbs) is essentially the same as the Atkins diet. If we put only protein in our belly our body must burn the fat for energy since there is zero carbs to burn. That having been said you can do 3-4 eggs for breakfast, all the bacon you can eat and a couple of cups of green tea and you won’t be hungry for 6 hours. Lunch can be a breast of chicken, turkey or a large hamburger patty for variety. If you want to keep the diet on the cheap side go back to eggs for dinner and finish off the bacon you didn’t eat that morning. This diet will cause the fat to fall off you since the only source of energy in your system is missing (carbs).
    be carefull with things like Ketchup and certain fruits that have in many cases alot of carbohydrates which only slows the process. R.I.P. Dr. Atkins. I always turn to his diet when I want to drop 20lbs in a heartbeat. good luck.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Hayley

    Sounds Great from all the comments I have heard about everyones weight loss stories! I am going to try this diet because I want to lose 20-30 pounds in about a month or two so I will tell you how it goes in about 2 weeks! I am SO excited!!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment kimberjean

    well i turn twenty one in august so i really want to look and feel good about myself. i had a baby a little under a year ago and cant seem to get the extra weight off. im going to try this and ill let you know how it goes after the first week :] i really hope it works.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Lauren

    I lost 6 pounds in two weeks. It works!!!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment emily

    I just found out i am pregnant, but over wieght. Can i follow this diet for one week followed by a healthy diet?

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Doris

    can you eat the eggs any way you like? example: with cheese, omlettes, or do they have to be raw?

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Janice Austin

    Years ago a diet came out called the Mayo Clinic diet (had nothing to do with them) that was 2 hard boiled eggs and grapefruit for all 3 meals. It was only supposed to be used for a few days to drop about 5 pounds. It worked and wasn’t that hard as the eggs are very filling. By the way, Doris, don’t ever eat eggs raw (could have Salmonella). Back in the 50’s this was popular, but chicken farms were safer then and chickens were healthier.
    I’ve been drinking fresh organic vegetable and fruit juice along with “green drinks” and have been losing weight. I am going to do the egg diet again, but combine it with salad not steak.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment katy

    does this really work? aren’t eggs high in cholesterol?

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Anthony

    Thanks. But I don’t think a defaced picture of Mary, the Mother of God needs to be used.

    Happy feast of the Assumption!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment carmen villalobos

    HELP!!I’m suffering from water retention which makes me look overweight. My hands and feet are swollen, sometimes it hurts to walk. What am I doing wrong? I drink plenty of water, but it doesn’t seem to work.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Patricia Somers

    I know it cannot be the eggs alone. I do in fact consume at least 28 eggs per week and have been doing so for at least 6 years. I can assure you that the weight is not dropping. If the diet actually works it must be in combination with the other things that she did in addition to the eggs.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Melissa C. of Virginia

    When I was first diagnosed with Diabetes, I was scared to eat anything for the fear of raising my blood sugar, so I went on an ALL egg diet, eating them scrambled for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Well lets just say that after a month of eating eggs as every meal I lost 20+ pounds and my Dr. was just as excited as I was!
    So yes, the egg diet does work, as long as you stick with it.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment L. mae

    I just found out about the egg diet will try it

  • Janice Taylor, Editor

    Thank you, Betty. You are a peach and a plum.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Vera

    Yes, I would do the 28 egg thing as long as it would really work. I eat now, 2 – 3 eggs a day.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment max

    I love the sounds of this egg diet!!!! :) would love to try it!!! But pls would someone tell me how it works, what I need to do?!?! Thanks!!! Xoxo

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment ralph

    i did it for 2 weeks, lost 15 pounds!! And this is not an “egg diet” its Atkins protein diet.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Noel

    WOw, the comments and everything was really inspiring. I’ve been really depressed about my weight, and I’ve decided not to just sit on my butt and do something about it! I’m going to start this starting tomorrow because its night right now. I need to lose 30 pounds :S. I’ll keep everyone posted. Everyone’s comments really helped and hopefully mine will too, for future readers :).

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment nancy

    can someone please post back to this website and tell me what do you eat and when and how much? specifics of the diet. Im really trying to lose weight and need to soon. I would really appreciate it!! thank you

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Jen

    In March I was at my peak of 283. I had gotten down to 243 on my own, and then tried the egg died to try to make a dent because I was plateauing. I have tried the egg diet (or a modification of one) a few months ago. I cheated 3 times during the 2 weeks (pizza/mexican food) but lost 16lbs in 2 weeks!
    I mostly am making cheesy eggs and eat 3x a day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). Diet Rite Zero, soda of choice (no aspartame) helped with the late evening hunger, at least 1/2 gallon of water if not more. I usually felt “full” despite the lack of food I was eating. And occasionally had the carb cravings (which is when I cheated) but it wasn’t the end of the world.
    I was also taking a multi-vitamin and a B-Complex Vitamin everyday.
    I was skeptical, especially thinking once I lost the weight, if I started eating “normal” again would it all just come right back? Nope! It stayed off, and am happy to say I have lost 15 more lbs since then, just doing regular things I was doing before the egg diet, like watching my carb and calorie intake and light exercise, and am currently at 221.5. (Still have a long way to go)
    Losing that weight really helped me make a dent in my weight loss and motivated me to keep going.
    It takes A LOT to will power to do this for even 1 week, let alone 2 weeks. If you “cheat” don’t worry about it, just get back on track the next day.
    Hope this helps any one that is skeptical.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Jenji
    This is the link to Margaret Thatchers copy of the diet. I had the same copy back in the mid 70s.
    I see a lot of confusion about the diet on this post. I followed it back in the day and lost 16 lbs in two weeks. I remember that after the first 5 days or so, I started burping up egg. Eeeeek. But it worked before. So I’m ready to do it again. I just got back from the store. Lucky me… eggs and grapefruit and skinless chicken was on sale. :)

    • Janice Taylor, Editor

      Hi Jenji … it’s so interesting. i posted the info about the Margaret Thatcher diet, not necessarily because I thought it was the greatest way to lose weight – more as a ‘news’ – this is what Margaret Thatcher did! At the end of the day, I always ask myself “Is this sustainable?” It might give us a running start, but in the end, balanced and healthy rule the day! Thanks for sharing and good luck! Janice

  • Zombeekell

    Hi everyone! I am a promotional model in the Baltimore area and I am sooo excited to have stumbled upon this diet plan! I plan on beginning it tomorrow, along with my INSANITY work out program. I have been looking for SOMETHING/ANYTHING to shed my extra weight for some time now. I have PCOS so it’s super hard to get the weight off. I will let you know how it goes in a few days! 😀

    best of luck to EVERYONE!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Paul

    Your picture on this site is EXTREMELY Offensive.Though im not a Catholic , i think the pic of u with “baby jesus” with egg on his head is extremely offensive.I would have definitely sued you if you were in India!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Faye

    Okay, first I’d like to say that the picture is NOT offensive, kay? The madonna and child painting was originally a pagan painting depicting fertility of aphrodite or something. And secondly, I am going to try this. I have 9-10 days to lose at least 10 pounds. I will post back with results next week!!:D

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Susan

    I have a wedding to go to in 16 days from today. I’m going to try this and I will be sure to post back in a week! Good Luck to everyone else that is giving this a try! :)

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Jill

    I’m really unhappy with the way I feel and look. I don’t own scales but I will take measurements. I’m a size 12 now. I want to drop 3 sizes. Looking forward to giving the egg diet a try. I plan to walk 30-45min daily. I’ll keep you all posted on my success. Oh by the way, those who like boiled eggs yet sometimes have trouble with the shells, put a little baking soda in your boiling water. Works like a charm every time and I think they taste better.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment David

    I tried something simular to this and lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks.
    Breakfast: 1 egg, 1 banana. Snack: 1 egg
    Lunch: 1 egg, 1 small meat patty, 1 apple.
    Snack: 1 egg
    Dinner: same as lunch.
    snack: 1 low calorie serving of pudding.

    I do need to incorporate some veggies and excersice.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Gabriel

    Hi, great article. I really really need to lose weight. I’ve been obsessing about my appearance for far too long and it’s getting in the way of school and just life. I don’t have a scale but I live in a condo with an exercise room, so every morning when I wake up at 6 am I’ll go down and use the scale there. I’m going to start tomorrow since it is 10 pm right now, I’ll keep everyone posted. :) Good luck to me and everyone else.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment john

    i was on the all egg diet for about 5 months (about 5 dozen a week)and lost 70 lbs, after that i added protein shakes as well as a multivitamin with exorcise, currently i am at 10.7% body fat and iv never looked/felt better.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment dk

    does this egg diet really work? can’t wait to try it out but just not sure !

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment SC

    I’m planning on trying this diet!! so excited!! for people who succeeded in losing weight, do you eat the yolk for all the eggs consumed? or say, if you eat two eggs a meal, you eat the yolk for one of them and toss the other?
