Fat Fast food ideas?

What have you eaten on a fat fast? I'm trying to look beyond 1 oz. of macadamia nuts, or 2 spoons of sour cream with caviar () or anything in an avocado (weird, I know, but I don't like them).

There are so many creative people out there, I'd love to hear some more ideas!

TIA!

I made coconut oil bark with raw, dark chocolate cocoa and stevia. I could live on that stuff. I ate it and whipped cream with English toffee Davinci mixed in.. along with cream cheese with walnuts chopped in. I used lots of heavy cream in coffee a few times a day.. I also made egg salad with 3x more yolks than whites and had it for dinner.. with lots of butter mixed in... (still warm).. I could only make it three days but it really took care of my cravings and by the third day my appetite was pretty much gone.

I made tuna salad for 5 lunches at work using
3 cans tuna in olive oil
4 hard-boiled eggs
8 T mayo
3 t sugar-free relish
Again this is enough for 5 lunches. 384 calories, 76% fat.

2 eggs beaten and swirled in chicken broth with 1/2 t coconut oil. 203 calories, 58% fat.

2 hard-boiled eggs with 2-t mayo. 220 calories, 76% fat.

2-oz cream cheese. 200 calories, 90% fat.

2-1/2 oz pate. 166 calories, 75% fat.

Cream cheese and macadamia nuts are your best bets for high fat. Also mayo, sour cream and heavy cream. You could whip some heavy cream with some DaVinci syrup mixed in.

I also ate avocados. Too bad you don't like them. 227 calories, 83% fat.

Sour cream with fresh dill and a little garlic on pork rinds.
SF peanut butter
Egg salad
and something new I came across
Chocolate FROSTING! AMAZING
Coconut milk, open can and stick in the fridge over night. Skim off the "cream" from the top. Add unsweetened cocoa powder and stevia or splenda. Thick and amazing! I'm not 100% sure unsweetened cocoa powder is on plan for fat fast...I'm on day 1 and still learning.

Heavy whipping cream made into "jello" with Knox gelatin and saccharin tablets.

Hard boiled eggs smeared with beef drippings.

Brie or camembert cheese, the double cream varieties

Beef bacon and egg yolks (tossing the whites keeps the protein level low)

I wish you happy fasting!

I'm trying a sort of Fat/Protein fast to get myself back on track without relying on grains.

Eggs, Full Fat cottage cheese, roast chicken, bacon, tuna with mayo, steak cooked in coconut oil, etc. are my "go to" food items this week. I never eat bacon so this is all very strange to me.

Good Luck to you!

Sorry I'm renting...buying is still too distant in my future for me to know any realtors! I'm in the Huntington beach area!

I'm on day 3 and so far have lost 2 pounds each day. I'm sure it won't last!
Hunger mostly gone today but feeling a little "off". I heard this is due to the low protein on the fat fast, but I'm trying to use a good amount of eggs. I have 2-3 eggs a day as my fuelings.

My typical day has been:
Breakfast
hardboiled egg with avocado and 1 tsp sour cream approx 200 cal.
snack
6 tbsp sour cream with fresh dill and cucumber slices approx 200 cal.
Lunch
egg salad with 2 eggs and 1 tbsp mayo approx 220 cal
snack
Frosting. Thick part of coconut milk with stevia and 2 tsp unsweetened coco powder...AMAZING....approx 200 cal
Dinner
Pork rinds with cream cheese or brie

Dana Carpender recently did an extended fat fast...she posted her recipes/menus almost every day on Facebook, if you're interested.

Everyone is begging her to write a Fat Fast cookbook!

Today I made a creamsicle using 1/4 cup whipping cream, 1 tsp cream cheese, stevia and strawberry extract!

I melted the cream cheese just a tad, added stevia and extract, then added it to the whipping cream and stirred. Put in a small cup with a spoon sticking out of it, and froze. When it was frozen I just pulled the spoon from the cup with the creamsicle attached and ate it that way! Was way delish!

Coconut oil is very good for a fat fast.

melt 2/3 cup CO
mix 1/2 cup peanut butter
sweetener to taste
blend well
pour into lined muffin tins and refrigerate.

Dr. Atkins describes it in Chapter 20 of DANDR including when to do the Fat Fast.

Coconut butter aka coconut manna! It is over 80% fat. It is plain coconut ground up into a paste or semi solid (like peanut butter). That's it; no other ingredients. So delicious, you can eat it by the spoonful.

Two tablespoons has..
186 cals
18g fat
7g carbs
5g fiber
2g protein

The percentages are
81.82% cals from fat
14.14% cals from carbs
4.04% cals from protein

I bet you could come up with some sort of cream of broccoli or cream of aspargus or cream of <whatever> soup that had basically a minimal amount of the vegetable for flavor and thickening, chicken broth, and cream or cheese for the fat, possibly add a little butter... you would have to play around with the recipe to get the right percentages you want.


I know the OP does not like avocado... but for the benefit of others reading the thread:
Google search "avocado soup" there are two kinds that could be adapted for the fat fast. One is bascially a richly flavored Mexican style chicken broth with cilantro and lime, with chunks of avocado in it.
http://www.skinnytaste.com/2010/02/c...cado-soup.html
(I would start with leaving out the tomato and some of the scallions and reducing the amount of chicken in this recipe and play around until the percentages were right)

The other is a savory cream of avocado soup thats bascially avocado, chicken broth, and cream with some seasonings.. its generally served cold.

I had forgotten about pate!!! Adding chicken livers to my shopping list!

Adding to the list of fat fast foods is butter!! I love it so much that I can eat it straight up. In fact, it is the best way to eat it IMHO!!!

clackley, do you make ghee?

we haven't even used plain butter in my house for a few years...ghee is so good!!!

I make mine a little browner than commercial ghee, and keep it in a little enamel pot near the stove.
Sometimes I just take the lid off and smell it! It smells almost like caramel!!!

No Jenny, I have not tried to make my own yet but I should. I do use the commercial stuff but I like real butter better - way better. I bet I would really like home made ghee!

It's really easy...you just melt the butter (low heat/slow simmer) so the water slowly evaporates--butter is about 15% water.

Most instructions will tell you to skim away the foam as the ghee cooks.
What I discovered once by accidentally taking a nap (lol) is that if you leave it alone, the "foam" will settle to the bottom of the pan and brown (and burn, if you leave it too long or try to reheat it!!!). It means I have to scrub the pan a little, but to me, it's worth it and tastes even better than ghee made "correctly".

Then I line a strainer with a few layers of cheesecloth and pour it through into my enamel pot.

Unsalted butter is best for this--it's made with better quality cream, and salt will clump at the bottom and get strained out anyway.
