Broke a stall... with fat!

I love JUDDD as a WOE but a few weeks in, and I started losing and gaining the same pound over and over and couldn't budge below the 231/232 range. I looked at my food diary and saw that I had become so focused on straight calories that the quality of what I was eating was slipping and the carbs were adding up, even though I was staying within and often below my calorie ranges.

So Wenesday, an UD, I switched things up and went high fat 65%F/15%C/20%P. I started the day with a fat bomb smoothie and made a batch of fat bomb truffles, my usual homemade high fat dressing, added avocado to my salad, etc... The next morning (yesterday) after the UD I'd lost a pound! Then yesterday I had a DD, where I normally fast until 5, I started the day off with a fat bomb truffle which added 200 extra calories to my usual DD allotment, then fasted til 5 and today I lost another 2 lbs!

I'm a little anxious about the weekend because I have a lot of social stuff lined up that's food related but if nothing else, it gave me a little boost and renewed desire to keep going and I feel less inclined to cheat this weekend than I might have otherwise.

So if you're stuck and frustrated, try upping your fat. It's very satisfying, you feel great energetically and you might just break the stall.

Mrs. S, oooooh, I adore the high fat thing right now, too.

The only un-perfect thing I have noticed while JUDDDing (ie while upping carbs, lowering fat, in my case, in an attempt to create fuller plates) is that my hair and nails have become less healthy.
Upping my fat appears to be shifting that, though it's a bit early to be certain.
I do love the SATISFACTION I feel with fat, and the diminishing of cravings.

What makes me laugh out loud is reading that some of us feel the same benefits and satisfaction as they up their carbs.

Isn't it wild, the way this WOE has room for all of us? Not to mention the way we discover these things about ourselves as each week passes, and as each pair of pants gets a bit looser?

Love. JUDDD.

That's great news - congratulations! I'm going to have to try that too. I'm used to the high fat from low carb. I'm still trying to be mostly controlled carb, but I have been allowing myself more and more while on JUDDD. Great strategy to get the ball rolling again! Thanks!

Yes, what is this "fat bomb"??? Sounds intriguing.

Until she chimes in, I'll give you one version.
We use tiny muffin cups with paper liners.
1/2 cup coconut oil
A few tablespoons butter
A couple of tablespoons of peanut butter.
A square or two of unsweetened bakers chocolate, chopped.
As little fake sweetener as is palatable.

Melt it together in the microwave.

Pour it in the wee cups, and refrigerate or freeze.

Delicious, fat-filled treats.

I assume 100-120 calories per tablespoon.

It is fun indeed! I like that this time around of working to get healthier, I'm less afraid to experiment for fear of blowing it. I think my efforts in the past have been far too rigid so that once I did blow it for a meal, that was it, diet was over. It only took me 43 years to figure this out and I credit it mostly with reading the experiences on this forum. This place rocks!

So fat bomb truffles are what I call this fat bomb recipe from wifezilla's blog called Abi Fae's Fat Bombs.

I halved the recipe, using 1/2 cup salted almond butter, 1/2 cup org CO, 5 T salted butter, 1/2 bar 85% cacao Lindt bar chopped finely and two packets of truvia. Nuke the first three ingredients together. Then stir in the chocolate, which melts, and sweetener until smooth. I then poured the mixture into 24 mini cupcake papers in a mini muffin tin, weighing them out to 14 grams each so they'd be easy to track. They look like little reese's cups and are quite tasty, though the high fat keeps me from wanting more than one or two at time. My husband was the inspriation for naming them fat bomb truffles, exclaiming, "you get to eat chocolate truffles on your diet?" They give you so much energy and keep hunger at bay for hours.

The nutrition breakdown per half ounce truffle is...

105 calories
11g fat
1g protein
1.8g carb

Try them. They're little energy bombs.

Edited to add: refrigerate them to cool and then transfer to ziploc bag and keep in fridge. They melt fast otherwise.

Do you think you could use coconut butter instead of the regular butter? I have a dairy allergy, so that is a no go. Otherwise, these sound divine!

Cream cheese? Oh yes! Next time, cream cheese will be added, along with some unsweetened coconut. I think that would be amazing.

I've been gravitating towards more fat (but much lower carb), recently, too.
Been reading about a lot of people trying the "Nutritional Ketosis" approach, and being very successful at improving health and losing weight.
Also read that "too much" protein at night can result in high blood sugar the next morning.
So yesterday I had most of my protein at breakfast; had veggies & fat for dinner, and woke up with a better-than-usual blood sugar.

I make curried fat bombs and melt them on shirataki noodles:

I accidentally bought the coconut butter instead of coconut oil a few weeks ago. I made my own version of these with it (coconut butter, vanilla, cocoa powder, cinnamon and stevia), and they tasted wonderful. Had a different texture, but they were quite delicious.

I do but sometimes find it hard to eat them all. That's what appealed to me about the fat bombs. Also, as a vegetarian, I just don't eat that much protein anyway and so many high fat options are meat so I'm sure if you eat meat, it's a little easier. Amazingly, going high fat has pretty much killed my desire for all starches. Now if I have any, I feel like crap so the urge to cheat isn't very strong. Eating sugar free cheesecake every other night doesn't hurt either.

Can I ask which recipe you use for sugar free cheesecake? I LOVE cheesecake! And anything to do with cheese, honestly it just usually comes with a lot of calories!

I pretty much followed beachgirl's infamous cheesecake recipe, using torani's french vanilla syrup to sweeten it and a nut crust made from almond meal, pistachio meal and butter. Let me know if you need more detail.

It might not be practical for most but I had to figure out a way to get more fat in so I 'suffer' through cheesecake. You can make them in cupcake papers and have perfect little individual servings.

I just wanted to post a quick update for anyone interested. It's 9 days later and I've been sticking to this pretty well except for a pizza incident wednesay night, but I at least did plan for it. Anyway, I'm down to 226 this morning!!! That's a loss of 5lbs in 9 days. I'm delighted. I don't want to lose that quickly all the time but it seems to have made up for the recent stall and feel like I'm where I would have been if not for the stall.

I checked macros in my diary over that period and I'm averaging 75% fat, 10% carbs and 15% protein.
