I was on a low carb diet for awhile (lost 30 pounds, kept off all but 6) about 3 1.2 years ago. I just gave up the white stuff...bread, potatoes, pasta. etc. I ate some eggs, but also fruit, veg. some cheese. I also watched how much fat I took in. For an example I seldom ate bacon. Now, I can have a LITTLE of all of it. It's really a matter of portion control, for me. Diversity is key if you want to stay on this diet.

Hard Boiled with salt and pepper or hot sauce

Use them to make tuna or chicken salad...boiled eggs, mayo, dash of mustard, and sweet pickle relish plus meat are what I use, but you may want to replace the pickle relish with chopped fresh cucumbers, which adds a sweet crunch without the sugar.

As much as i love eggs, i am running low on idea's, i've done everything i can think of, adding bacon/ham/chicken/cheese. Splitting the white and yoke, placing cheese between them and then cooking so far is my favorite, but if i eat to much it gets over welming.

Any idea's?

A follow up to my welcome. Welcome to DC. Do you have a trainer or nutritionist? Guessing you are trying to bulk up with high protein? If you've already eaten the last of your eggs, here are some ideas for next time...

Pasta carbonara - eggs, bacon & parmesan cheese. If you can find low carb pasta, you might give that a try. A small portion is very filling.

I'm partial to (egg) souffles, but usually consist of mostly egg whites.

Spinach Salad w Warm Bacon Dressing - spinach, sliced hard-boiled eggs, bacon, mushrooms, onions. Here's a great yummy recipe from Alton Brown that I love:

Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing

Add a side of grilled salmon or grilled chicken to make it a meal.

Another source for yummy egg recipes:

Incredible Edible Egg

Quiche, asparagus & crab meat - or any veggie like broc & any cheese, swiss gruyere, cheddar, etc. & add some bacon and spinach to the mix, if you wish.
