Ok, I have insulin resistance. My dr put me on a diet exactly like owl. I decided to hurry up the weight loss to just do Atkins induction. I've only lost 16 lbs in almost 4 months. So I decided to do a fat fast, 3 days and still no change on the scale. I'm testing positive with ketostix, just not losing weight wth... :dunno:

Are you measuring yourself? Have you lost inches?

If you're not losing weight or inches (over the course of six weeks), how much are you eating? Your protein or calories (or both) might be too high.

Are you eating bars or shakes or sugar alcohols? Those are notorious for impinging on weight loss. Stick to whole foods as much as possible, and drink plenty of water.

The fat fast was created for people who didn't lose on Induction. You DID lose. The fat fast won't help you. 16 pounds in 4 months is about a pound a week. Not bad, really, especially being insulin resistant. Are you exercising? Tell us more details and we might be able to help...
