Hello doctor,

There is a diet to lose 10 kgs in 10 days where I have to eat three eggs at breakfast and three eggs at lunch and oats for dinner. So, I want to really do this diet. My question is, can I eat four or six eggs together at breakfast because I cannot have them later due to my schedule. Is it fine?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

This is absolutely not a good way to lose 10 kg in 10 days. It can create several health problems. So, I suggest you do not do this. The best rate would be to reduce 4 to 5 kg in a month.

About eating eggs, eating three to four eggs is ideal for weight management, but we need also other food items to maintain weight like fruits, vegetables, cereals, dals, water, etc.

I suggest the following:

  1. Have small meals.
  2. Regular exercise or yoga is a must.
  3. Consume more fruits and vegetables.
  4. Have water in plenty.
  5. Use the stairs.
  6. Do not skip any meal, especially breakfast.

Revert to me if you need a personalized diet chart. I will gladly help you.

Thank you doctor,

But, can I consume four eggs at breakfast? Is it digestible?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

The rate of digestion can vary from one person to another.

While some people's bodies are found to be able to digest more than five eggs, it is not the case with everyone.

So you can try if you must. But, if you feel some discomfort, please stop it immediately.
