Have the Easter holidays left you with a couple of extra pounds? It’s easy to overindulge and eat larger portions than normal during the holidays, but the good news is, you can use any easter food leftovers like boiled eggs to your benefit and help your body lose any excess weight and detox at the same time. This egg-based diet may appear a bit crazy to some, but it’s actually loaded with protein and healthy fats that will help you lose weight--and there are little to none carbs which can actually make you fatter. Here is an example meal plan, for each day of the week:
Breakfast: 1 slice of whole wheat toast, 1 tsp of olive oil, 1 slice of grilled tomato, and one hard boiled egg sliced on top.
Lunch: An egg salad with 2 chopped boiled eggs, 1 cup of lettuce, 3 cherry tomatoes, 1 tbsp of yogurt, 1 tsp of mustard and a few roasted bacon bits.
Dinner: Garlic and lemon marinated roasted skin off salmon, 2 asparagus pieces, and 1 poached egg over the salmon.
Breakfast: 1 grapefruit and a boiled egg
Lunch: Grilled chicken with Greek herbs and 1/3 cup boiled broccoli
Dinner: Flank steak slices with one sunny egg and 1 cup of arugula/cherry tomato salad
Breakfast: omelette with 1 whole egg and 3 egg whites and chopped green onions.
Lunch: 2 grilled lamb chops and celery cucumber salad.
Dinner: 1 cup of chicken and veggie soup (no heavy cream added).
Breakfast: 1 hard boiled egg, 1 grapefruit

Lunch: One medium Mexican tortilla filled with tuna (one tin), 1 tbsp of light mayo, 1 egg chopped, 1 small tomato chopped, and 1 tsp of paprika.
Dinner: 1 cup of cooked quinoa fried after with 1 egg, 1 tbsp of liquid aminos, and 2 spring onions chopped.
Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs and 3 cherry tomatoes.
Lunch: 1 atomic portion meatloaf made with ⅔ lb lean beef meat, 1 tsp of Italian seasoning, 1 tsp of tomato sauce and 2 hard boiled eggs stuffed in the middle + ½ cup arugula and cherry tomato salad with 1 tbsp of mustard vinaigrette.

Liquids you can drink:
In general, you should go for low calorie and healthy drinks when following this diet such as plain wate, herbal tea, or green/fruit smoothies that are alkalizing to help the body detox faster. Drinking alcohol and smoking are absolute no-nos as they will totally cancel off the detox process.
