Hi all, okay, I love fat, naturally.
But one time I did the fat fast and lost ZERO pounds.
Do you think that this diet will work for me?
I lost over 100lbs on low carb years ago.
Maintained, maintained, like...tick....tick...tick....boom and now I'm sooooo phat again.
How is it when I don't care at all, I don't really gain that bad.
I mean, I prob eat over 400 carbs a day when I don't care.
Now I have been below 30 and even close to zero most days, and I don't seem
to lose anything.
About the fat...is all the fat to make me happy and eat less protein?
Or does eating it make the body let go of it's own fat?

Please keep in mind that I lost nothing doing zero carbs, zero protein, on fat fast for
5 days. I only had macadamia nuts, cream cheese...uh-oh pecans too.
Maybe that is what threw me off?

Huh!!!!
Question if I get liquid splenda and organic zero carb heavy cream, can I drink as much coffee and cream as I want to? Oh goodness, I would love to do that.
I'm always going to be some kind of a binger...I even binge on water now.
2 gallons a day and sometimes more.
What about rockstar sugar free drink, I like that.
I can't get my body to move the weight off.
I was eating 1000 calories and all of my pants are still the same...tight.
I messed up yesterday, from being depressed and stupid.
I had over 20 carbs...from eggs, 2 slices of cheese (12 carbs), dunkin doughnuts coffee with half and half (alot) and 4 equals.
Now I can't get pass moderate on my keto sticks.
I mean who cares, they have been purple and I can't get the deep anymore, no matter
what.
Plus I know it's dumb cause I'm not losing.
Measurements are the same too.
I feel hopeless, why don't I lose 5lbs a week?

My personal opinion is that you can gain weight on a fat fast. They have to be somewhat calorie controlled, maybe 2000 calories but it can't be a free for all. You need to eat a minimum of 1200-1400 calories a day. 1000 calories is starvation mode and your body will hold onto the weight because it thinks you are on a deserted island!

Now, about ketone sticks. Barry Groves, the EFGT guy, says that his wife was pegged purple for 4 months and never lost 1 pound. Ketosis doesn't mean you are losing weight. All it means is you are using dietary fat as energy because your carbs are low. Don't rely on the ketone sticks.

Have you ever tried ******.com? ****** is a great way to track your calories and percentages and keep things in line. You have to measure and weigh everything. Try it for a couple of days and see where you are.

I'm not sure about Truvia. It is the best sugar alcohol and stevia so I'm in favor of it but surf these boards and see if anyone else has that problem. Also, with as much water as you are drinking, your ketones will be very dilute. Dark purple is often a sign of dehydration.

Yes, they're fine as long as you keep your ratios in the correct range.

I've been looking to see if mine were close also.

Fat 65%
Carbs 8%
Protein 27%

Maybe we can find out together.

I SO appreciate you all posting your recipes.

Cook broccoli according to package directions (I use microwave). Drain & set aside. Mix together eggs, melted butter, mushroom soup, mayo and cheddar. Add broccoli and mix well. Pour into casserole dish (9x12 works good). Top with parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. I usually put the broiler on for the last 3 minutes to make sure the top gets nice and brown.

I added up all the ingredients and entered it into a tracker. I figure about 6 BIG servings, and they each will have the following. If you want to divide it into smaller servings and have some meat on the side, then you can just multiply by 6 and then divide by how ever many servings you have.

Calories: 549
Fat: 53g 86%
Carbs: 11g (3g from fiber) 6%
Protein: 11g 8%

You will LOVE this recipe. Try it!!

Not a correct ratio meal, but more a side dish as part of a meal. Great for the holidays, everyone will love it!!
this looks AMAZING

Loving the coconut oil mayo previously posted here - but THINKING about some baconnaise!

I have some clean bacon fat (from pastured no hormone pork bacon ) - any successful baconnaise makers with tips?

Here's more, Based on ideal EFGT ratio's of 65%, 20%,15%, but I just looked for ones where the fat was at or above because you can always add another dish to up the protein if it's low...

LS's Spinach Lasagna - 368 Kcal, 68%fat, 25% pro, 5% cho
LS's Cream Cheese clouds - 134 Kcal, 94%fat, 6%pro, 1%cho
LCF's Bobo's Pumpkin Thickshake - 297 Kcal, 83% fat, 11% pro, 6% cho
Black Soybean Brownies, with Coconut oil vs butter - 68% fat, 20% pro, 19% cho

Now I know some of these don't add up exactly, I think there is some fuzzy math as far as Kcals may be for ingredients so that the calculations don't add up exactly, but they are pretty close to 100% in the end.

That's all I've got for now!

I've been doing low carb for almost three months now and have lost 22 pounds so far. I have started to add more fat to my diet to see if it would help me lose more weight or faster. My daily menu is this:

B-2 cans of Tuna w/half an avocado and 1tbsp of mayo.
L- 2 chicken breasts with cup of lettuce or 3 scrambled eggs with butter
D- 2 chicken breasts w/ cup of broccoli and 1 tbsp butter.

Snacks are usually hard boiled eggs or piece of chicken.

Do you think that is enough fat?

I would go for dark meat chicken as way to add some additional fat.
I looks a little on the light side to me, but there are folks here that are more knowledgeable about these matters, so I hope they will chime in.

Jacclyn22, You menu ( using 1T of butter with 3 eggs instead of chicken breast for Lunch) seems to be about 49% protein and only about 45% fat. It's really high in protein, too high for EFGT ratios, where protein should be about 20%, and fat should be around 65% or higher.

Some suggestions for the menu you posted:
Use Dark Meat Chicken like thighs. they are higher in fat for the portions
Use a cream/fat based sauce to have with your chicken and broccoli. Hollandaise or cheese sauce, something to add fat to the meal. Maybe you could shred the chicken, and toss it with your broccoli and some sour cream for a stroganoff type meal.

Walnuts have a good amount of fat in them, for a snack option, or regular ( non low fat) cheeses as cubes, Maybe make a sour cream dip to dip your veggies in.

You can find ways to add fat to your meals, don't be afraid to add more butter or other forms of fat. that's the point, it's supposed to be high in fat-fuel, not protein.
Good luck and post back if you have any questions.

Welcome to LCF.

My Pleasure. If I find more I'll calculate them and post them. Many of my easy go-to ones are meat and veggie heavy, but there are some choice recipes that are deliciously high in fat and easy to make.
