Word’s been circling the internets today that famed art collector Charles Saatchi, husband of famed British chef Nigella Lawson, lost about 50 pounds in 10 months eating nothing but eggs. Seems like an extreme (and extremely uncomfortable) version of the Atkins diet.
We wrote the feat off as impossible, not just because it’s unclear that the diet would be effective, but who in their right mind could stand to live on an all-egg diet for nearly a year? Well, it turns out that just because there’s one ingredient in your food, that doesn’t mean there’s no diversity. A conveniently timed (and beautiful) slideshow ran on Gourmet’s website today showcasing a dozen types of eggs. Please check it out. It’s great. Click the photo to get there.
