    Yes, the egg does create the tempation to cook lots of really great things. However, unless you are doing pizzas every night, I doubt that the food (meat that is) coming off your egg is causing as much weight gain as is the other stuff you are eating with it. Try reducing or elimating potatos, rise and bread and you should be able to eat whatever else you like off the egg. Then there is the matter of desert . . .

    Mully,[p]I've actually LOST 12 lbs since I first got my egg (in July). Low carbs does it - [p]Chuck (Atkins diet convert)
  • chuckls,
    I am also a convert.
    I've lost over 60 lbs since Feb. I use my grill all the time. Steaks, chops, ribs, brisket, pulled pork, chicken, burgers, brats, A.B.T.s.....
    This is the best diet food I've ever had!

    New Bob,
    Yes, and I should have mentioned that as well. My beer consumption doubled after I got my first egg. What else is a guy going to do while waiting for the egg to reach cooking temps, or during a long slow cook? Fortunately, I have now reduced it to a more civil amount.
