    Default Has Anyone Done the ATKINS FAT FAST?

    I started today and I'm not sure if I'm doing it correctly...

    Atkins Fat Fast is for the metabolically resistant.

    Please post how you felt, I'm very curious. I do not need to do it but I'd like to hear the metabolic and psychological effects of the Fat Fast.
    Me, at 195 lb. September 24, 2009. It's 5:30 a.m. and can't wait to hit the coffee.

    Restart weight: (11/9): 237 lb
    third day of induction: (11/12): 228 lb
    fourth day of induction: (11/13): 227 lb (not fully carb depleted, yet)
    fifth day of induction: (11/14): 225 lb (liver not fully carb depleted)
    One week of induction (11/16): 224 lb. (I'm glycogen depleted, now I WILL NOT weigh myself frequently)
    Mini Goal 1: 220 lb (met 11/30, weight at 218 lb)
    Mini Goal 2: 210 lb
    Goal: the mirror (i.e. 200 lb @ 14% body fat)

    I posted all I know/have found out so far, here:

    Atkins Fat Fast

    I have one more 200 calorie meal left at 8.p.m.
    I feel fine so far, I'm not hungry at all. Amazing how satiating fat is.

    I'm not resistant, I'm doing this out of pure curiosity.

    I hope I can continue on... Maybe I should put a link on my blog to here, so I can check in.... hmmmm

    I hope someone who has done it shows up. All I can say at this point is I'm fine and that when you're 200 calorie meals are coming basically from all fat... it's about 2 heaping T of food... which is really a snack...lol

    I'm also curious how fast you'll put whatever weight you lost back on, once it is over.

    page 273 of DANDR states:
    "Let me make it clear that the Fat Fast is actually dangerous for anyone who is not metabolically resistant."

    What I have read from ppl who have tried this for curiousity sake or for quick weight loss sake is that yes they lost weight and yes they did put it back on quickly after they went off of it.

    Do you or what is...your plan when you go off the fat fast. Also, out of curiousity, what are your stats? Where you on Atkins at all..how long...how did you do or did you just go straight for the fat fast? Best of luck!

    "page 273 of DANDR states:

    I *believe* the above is a (cyb) "Cover Your Butt" statement.

    I was certain I'd wake up this a.m. very hungry, but nope... I'm not hungry in the least... I'm thinking that has to do with absolutely no carbs yesterday... And being satiated by the 1,000 calories of mostly fat.

    But it is only 9:30 a.m. on day two.

    My plan is to continue on for the five days, then up my protein and possibly add celery and cabbage or other very low carb vegetables in strict moderation... and continue to see how that goes, if my hunger comes along with the incessant food thoughts I'll back up.

    I'm getting an array of comments on my SparkPeople Blog here:

    Atkins Fat Fast

    My grandson was rejecting his transplant kidney and I had gone down to California to help out my daughter (his mother) and my son-in-law. My daughter was finishing up nursing school and taking state boards... While I was gone I gained nearly 40 pounds... It wasn't a planned trip it, was a fast and furious trip that lasted nearly three months. When I got back home the instant quietness brought on a melancholy so deep I just couldn't get the new weight off with the induction method... Maybe I'm doing this because of it's simplicity and I need simple right now. I guess I'm not just doing this for the sake of curiosity.

    I found another thread about the Fat Fast here on this forum,
    it's about who should do it:
    Who should do the Fat Fast? - Atkins Diet

    Since then I have also found out about the 'meat and egg' resistant buster diet/treatment... and am going to read more on it.

    When I first tried atkins my strips wouldn't turn and wouldn't turn. I thought I needed to do the fat fast. I only made it five days. There was a picture of a cherry cheesecake on my cream cheese box. I cracked. I don't even remember how much I lost, it wasn't a great amount or anything. I felt great once my strips started turning and had loads of energy. But it was boring and pretty awful after days of it, I happily switched back to induction and thankfully my strips still turned pink. I didn't gain the weight back. I will still fat fast if I have to to jump start ketosis, but only for a couple of days. I really just couldn't care to eat another spoonful of cream cheese. My body knows what to do with fat and protein now thankfully, I just wait awhile before even buying the strips now. I'd even rather wait an extra week than do a fat fast. I have kinda measure my green stuff on induction. I have to keep my protein lower and my fats higher. But I do it with the cheese of my choice and hamburger. lol

    It's now 1p.m. So far I have had 7 Macadamia nuts (first meal/snack)
    Then I drank 1/4 cup of my kefir, this is not on the list, but I digress.

    It's time to eat another little something... but I'm not hungry at all...
    I'll probably have a hard boiled egg (I boiled two last night for today).

    I feel great, and I'm not having any crazy food thoughts... Just thinking I should clean out my fridge.


    My stats
    5'6"
    53 years old
    medium to large boned

    210 pounds OUCHIE MOMMA!
