Welcome to Chef Talk!

Wow.
That is a lot of eggs.
One (size large) boiled egg has around 100 calories.
That would be 1500 calories per day.
Pretty sure as long as you got some sort of exercise every day (I used to be a runner till my back blew out...now I swim) you would indeed slim down.
Altho to lose weight and keep it off takes a change in lifestyle.
You will eventually get tired of eggs and start eating everything in sight ....will gain back what you lost and probably another 5 lbs to boot.

I can empathize with the whole wanting to lose weight thing, but hope you can find a more sensible approach .
That many eggs every day cannot be good for you (in fact I KNOW it is not).

The reason eating nothing but 15 eggs a day works for weight reduction is that it is a caloric reduction of about 40% of the recommended daily amount.

 

15 large poached or hard boiled eggs would be about 1065 calories or 60% DV. Plenty of protein about twice the DV. No carbs. Plenty of vitamins and minerals. The bad news is the total fat and saturated fat are about 120% DV. The really bad news is the cholesterol. It comes in at 1050% DV. :eek:

 

Weight loss, yes. Healthy, not so much.

There are many one-food-only diets out there like the cabbage soup diet, the grapefruit diet and now the egg diet. They all work to drop weight initially but the deprivation you will experience will drive you to gain it all back.

It's not a good idea to follow advice from a dieter or someone who has lost a lot of weight. The reason is that they may have used unhealthy methods to do so and since there is a 95% fail rate on all diets they may end up gaining that weight back and then some.

The best thing to do is observe people who have been naturally slim all their lives. You will see that they eat what they want, everything in moderation.

I can't eat eggs every day much less 3 times per day, you will be sick of it by dinner time.

I wonder if this is a serious question. Who would eat 15 eggs a day for a week to reduce weight? C'mon...

@clairelv  just throw them at people you don't like.  That's the best diet of all.  0 calories.

Great advise - zero calories consumed but a bunch of calories expended!

All joking aside, starvation type diets don't work.  Diets don't work in my experience.  The best you can do is to change your lifestyle habits.  Shopping habits, restaurant ordering habits, eating habits, exercise habits.

 

Less processed and refined foods, more cooking from scratch.  More fruits and veg, beans, whole grains, and fish.   It really all starts at the market.

My bad for not fact checking.

Much worse than I initially thought.....

Run (or power walk lol) Forrest Run as fast and as far away from this wacky diet plan as you can!

There are lots of web sites dedicated to healthy whole food eating.

Couple that with 20 min or so of exercise every day and you will not only obtain  the physical body changes you are seeking but you will feel so much better!

Actually the best diet plan you can have is washing dishes in a busy kitchen.

After a while just the sight of food will make it much less interesting lol.
