lll▷ Hard Boiled Egg Diet – Lose 24 pounds in 14 days. Army style
In order for our bodies to properly function we need to eat balanced well-rounded meals. Eggs provide us with just this. They are high in protein as well as vitamins D, B-6, B-12 and A. This makes eggs kind of a superfood. If you boil the eggs instead of frying them, you avoid the added grease as well. The boiled egg diet is a simple two week diet plan that will help you lose up to 24 pounds in this short time span. It functions like Nicole Kidmann’s hard boiled egg diet but it’s way safer. It was developed for army purposes, so some people might call it the military egg diet.
Our bodies function very simple. You put fuel in (food) and you use it. What’s leftover is stored in fat. If you combine the boiled egg diet with some very light exercise and at the same time refrain yourself from sugary and unhealthy food, the results are guaranteed.
One thing to be aware of is that eggs are a bit high in cholesterol as well, so doing it for more than 2 weeks might increase your blood cholesterol levels. Nicole Kidman tried the hard boiled egg diet (in which she ate nothing but 4-6 hard boiled eggs a day) and was very successful, but be aware that she had a whole army of nutritionists around her to monitor her health and progress. The military diet was developed so anyone can do it unsupervised as long as they follow the diet plan. It works even better if you first do a 5 day red tea detox (click here).
It is also essential that you stick to the predetermined amount of foods since eating anything else will throw your body out of balance and interrupt your metabolic function.
When you find yourself in a need of a snack or you feel irresistible hunger always remember to hydrate first. Most of the times when we feel hungry we are actually just thirsty, just the body cannot tell apart from the hunger and thirst. Also remember to refrain from soft drinks and sweets since carbohydrates will impair the progress of your weight loss.
If you have access to, then by all means try to stick to organic eggs since the nutritional value of organic eggs is much higher than the non-organic variety. It is highly recommended that you hard boil your eggs since cooking them at a high enough temperature will kill any bacteria (or anything else present for that matter) that the chicken might have picked up. You will also notice that it’s recommended that the fruit you consume in the morning is citric. This is because citric fruits makes your stomach work extra hard to digest them, thus noticeably increasing your metabolism.
In case you ever find yourself wandering how to cook your chicken today, or how to make the most low-calorie chicken salad, we have put together an article in order to give you some ideas. These chicken salad recipes are handpicked specifically to go along with this diet. But do not limit yourself just to these, there are many low calorie recipes there, so feel free to experiment.
It is also recommended that you restrict yourself to a 10 hour eating window so you leave your body enough time to tap into the fat supplies for energy. If you are more interested in fasting diets or ways that the body adapts to hunger, feel free to check out the Warrior’s Diet, which is more of a way of eating than a strict program. Now that you have been informed, we present to you the hard boiled egg diet (not the Nicole Kidman imbalanced variety).

Going to start this diet Monday. Will give updates as I go. Fingers crossed this works.
Did u lost some weight
how much weight did u lose kn this egg diet…..do u starve to death on what u eat….
On day 3 of this and down 5 lbs..
Tommy. Did you do the full 14 days. If so how much did you lose. How do you know how much of steamed veggies (for example) to eat. What do you put in tuna. Please say light mayo n not plain
Use mustard in your tuna. No calories at all.
can you use Italian tuna
I stayed on 14 days with my husband and we both lost 21 pounds
I’m going to try this, plus start walking too…
Did it work?
Not sure I will lose 24 lbs. but I weighed myself this morning and have lost 5 1/2 lbs.. Starting day 6 today, I started midweek instead of on Monday.
Did you stick with this? How much have you lost total?
Can you restart the diet on week 3 and 4?
Most diets like this tell you to continue eating healthy but not do do the diet back to back. I would only do this once a month. Judy my personal opinion.
What constitutes a veggie salad exactly? That could be just about anything?….
Am not a chicken person, with what can I substitute chicken with please?
What exactly do you mean when you say “veggie salad” or just “salad”? It’s all very vague. Any dressing? with the Veggie salad, what types of veggies? Do we eat lettuce and veggies or just veggies? Again, are we allowed any dressing or any other toppings? Also, when you say steamed veggies, can this be any veggie? I appreciate your input 🙂
While the term veggie salad is indeed broad, for the diet to work best, we’d recommend sticking to green above-ground vegetables. Definitely no carrots, tomatoes and potatoes since they are quite rich in carbs. As for salad dressings, try to keep it minimal. Salt, pepper and oil are fine though. Thanks for pointing this out. We will include this in the original article.
No problem! Thanks so much for your quick response! Also,
what is wrong with vinegar in the salad dressing?
Sorry, I just realized that that came out wrong. Stay away from dressings as they can add calories, just vinegar and olive oil are fine though. If you really want to add a dressing to your salad try to go as low on calories and as low on carbs as you can. Hope this clears things up.
Can I have bagel for lunch on day 1?
Wendy while it might be hard in the first couple of days to follow the boiled egg diet plan, please try to restrict yourself to what the diet plan actually recommends. Be strong and stay focused. Carb cravings will go away within a couple of days
I use balsamic vinegar for a dressing when I want one. Will that work?
Does it have to be boiled eggs why can’t it be scrambeled
what kind of dressing can u use
We’d recommend sticking to healthy low calorie dressings like Cilantro Lime Dressing, Sesame soy dressing or Greek Yogurt Caesar Dressing. You might also try Asian Vinaigrette Salad dressing but make sure to avoid the sugar. Hope this helps
Can I substitute salmon or tuna for chicken
Yes, if you prefer chicken you can, but beware, while chicken will provide you with more protein, it contains twice the amount of fat as well, so portion appropriately
If you’re allergic to fish do I just eat chicken?
On day 3 of this and down 5 lbs
can you drink coffee with half and half or black. Splenda Ok? Also can you use balsamic vinegar w/ olive oil for salad or just low calorie dressing?
Judy if it’s possible stay away from the balsamic vinegar & olive oil since the dressing alone can add 100-200 calories, you can add a bit for taste, but we wouldn’t recommend it. As for your coffee, black is the way to go. If you really cannot go without half & half you can have one with it during the day but don’t go crazy since most of the calories come from saturated fats that raise your ‘bad’ cholesterol. Hope this helps
What type of vinegar can you have?
So do we eat the yellow part in the egg or just the white part??
I would like to know what kind of veggies and dressing I can use on it .and how can you fix the chicken and fish. and can you rotate the meat and eat more fish and tuna instead of so much chicken. I have some of the copper skillets can I dust my meat with a little flower and sensing’s with 1 tsp. of butter or oil to skillet and fry it and how much can you have?
Hi – on day one for lunch it says to have 2 slices of whole meal bread, is this dry without spread or as dry toast? Also is tea with only milk allowed?
I would say on the questions asking can I put this or that on my bread or salad the best results would be no. They have been kind enough to give the diet. If spreads and such were intended they would have included them. Further if you truly want to lose weight you will have to make changes. Yes, dry bread. 🙂
Can you have sugar substitute?
Green veggie salad! Are peas beans avocados spinach lettuce cucs broccoli green peppers jalapenos good choices?
Yes, they are. You can include cucumber or zucchini, cabbage, artichokes and kale to your taste. Be aware that peas have approximately three times more calories than the rest of the items on the list and avocados have six times more, so portion appropriately
I have been on this diet for 8 days now and lost 10.4 pounds. The weight loss was rapid at first but now it’s slow. Does this mean my weight loss is complete and not to expect at least 10 more pounds this week?
Now that’s motivation! Keep up the good work.
Please explain what is ment by tomatoe salad, im trying very hard to follow this altho amounts and directions are soo very vague..is it suppose to be large, ripe tomatoes (softball size)
1-2 large celery ribs, thinly sliced
½ vidalia onion, thinly sliced
1 tsp. dried oregano
extra virgin olive oil
flaky sea salt
I’m trying to start tomorrow but there’s nowhere to get organic eggs in my town. So will it not work if I use non-organic eggs??
It will have the opposite effect, be careful
on the first day it says 2 slice of brown bread, can I have brown bread with peanut butter? Are all the egg diets the same. some have different food on them, does it matter which diet you pick.
Can I have two poached eggs? I’m hating the hardboiled eggs
Tracy, I am with you. I have a hard time with boiled eggs but I have a skillet that I can do a fried egg without any spray or oil addd. I was wondering the same thing. .
Also is baked chicken OK?
Can I have red onion in salad?
For the days where lunch is fruit salad only, it doesn’t specify the quantity. How much should we portion? Are there specific fruits to eat?
I’m wondering the same thing. Did u ever find an answer to this?
I started today! I have thyroid and medication which makes it hard to lose weight. Will this work just the same
I’m starting tomorrow, 26th of June, I need clarity on what to eat with the two slices of bread please? Is peanut butter OK or just butter? Thanks
Can I eat apple instead of citrus fruit?
Unfortunately, this diet works best with a citrus fruit since a citrus fruit will aid digestion. It will also push your stomach harder thus letting you absorb more nutrients from your meals.
Dear if we get hungry between meals.. Other than drinking water.. What can we have as a snack?
Popcorn. No salt or other flavorings. Air popped.
Can you use salt and pepper to season food? Is a snack permitted? And if so what can we have?
Id love to hear more about everyones results! And is there a way to share pictures if anyone has any? I am starting this in about a week so I am trying to prepare and im scared to death lol

NO that is the whole point in doing this, you have to stick with the meal plan, you will get use to it after a few days, drink a lot of water as well and you wont be hungry in between meals
What type of chicken salad? Like with mayo, or avacado or a green salad with chicken??
what does the chicken salad on day two consist of?
I started this diet yesterday and I am already down 2 pounds… I know that isn’t much but for it only being day 2 I think its awesome…. Stick with it and only eat what it tells you, and think about the serving size of things, what a normal serving size is and you shouldn’t go over that amount… The whole point to this is to retrain your body to eat properly and not gorging yourself…
I’ll be starting next week. My questions would be; What can I substitute for low fat cheese ( I am not a cheese eater at all) and what can I substitute instead of fish? Thank you for your help.
Can you use grapefruit juice instead of a citrus fruit?
Im starting this tomorrow. Im wondering what I can sub for the fish since im allergic to all seafood. Im thinking chicken but if there is something else, im open to suggestions.

What does Diet be good for a diabetic person does trying to lower A1c
While I cannot say anything about this particular diet, give THIS DIET read and if you like it give it a shot!
I started this two days ago, and already down 9.7 pounds! I know most people say you lose water weight first, but I don’t care what they say, I care what the scale says!! Good luck everyone!
Why can’t you have 2 scrambled eggs instead of hard boiled if you don’t use milk or butter ?
Just completed this two-week egg diet. I lost 15 pounds. Very tough for the first few days. Still drink coffee with very little powdered creamer and trivia. I did also exercise 30 minutes a day four days a week on the tread climber. My citrus choice of fruit was grapefruit.
Can I swap the lunch & dinners around on some days if I’m out & about?
Can I chew sugar free gum while on the Egg Diet?
I am planning on starting this diet on Monday. A few quick questions-
Is it okay to use fresh squeezed lemons on either my salad, steamed veggies, or chicken or fish?
For the Fruit salad- what type of fruit should we use and how much of a portion? 1 cup?
IM DOWN 5LBS DAY 4
What’s the calorie, carb and fat stats? I assume around 1000-1200, under 75-50, and fat grams?
I imagine Ezekiel bread and light rye crisp would be good for the bread part.
Baked chicken… no skin and tuna… i will also eat sardines in water, boneless and skinless. The mustard is a good idea. Mixed green salads.
This sounds like a good reset after my winter weight gain of 15 lbs.
Thanks… for your response ahead.
I am starting next week I wish if the diet was more precise but I will try to stick to it as much as I can! I did sleeve gastric bypass 5 years ago and now I gained 20 pounds so I will try this dietto get rid of them. I hope it will work for me!
If I completely take the bread out and supplement fish for chicked will it still be as effective?
Question….Is there a substitute for the eggs, citrus fruit, apples, chicken, fish, lettuce, tomatoes, and water? I don’t like any of those…it makes me sick thinking about ingesting all of that, especially in one day!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But I seriously need to lose weight!!!! Please help! Thank you!
Hi, Im starting this diet Monday,So Excited, hope it works!
Hi Linda im starting Monday too, good luck to you.
Hi I have started this diet today.. I am wanting to know how much Salad- a cup or more? Also tomato salad has what in it?
I’m getting closer to the Tomatoe Salad and Fruit salad days and not sure what all is in these? Could someone let me know what they are doing?
I am starting this in a few days.. hoping it will help jump start my weightloss.. I know diets like this aren’t great for the long run.. but anything will help start me out..
I tried this diet and lost 21 lbs in 2 weeks. I stuck with the diet for 1 and a half months and am currently down 50lbs. If a person sticks with this they will lose weight. I’ve seen some people wonder about the tomato salad, I improvised by putting vinager and olive oil with green spices and it tasted a little like Italian dressing to me. As far as tomato salad I would put onions and peppers to help flavor it. Good luck to all, you will have success if you stick with the plan.
Congrats Paul – how large were your salad servings?

It’s my second day with this diet what do i put to make veggie salad, not sure which veggies to combine.
How did it go? Good results? I had started it last week, lost 3 lbs in 2 days but I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and was hospitalized (nothing to do with this diet) so I had to stop it. Restarting now.
I started the Boiled Egg Diet on Sept. 2nd and it is Sept. 23 now. I have lost 11 pounds and I feel great. My veggies were bell peppers, onions, pickles, tomatoes, spinach, romaine lettuce. Oil and Vinegar for dressing or Light Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing, my Fruits are apples, grapefruits and oranges. Meat has been chicken or lean pork chops and of course boiled eggs. I incorporated cheese as well. I will continue this diet for a few more weeks.
