Fat Fast recipe ideas for kickstarting NK-take#2

I was reading through my original post for recipe ideas here
http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/nu...-ketosis.httml
and found I had many typos and errors.here is another attempt to format those recipe ideas,and I have added more recipes at the end including some Modified fat fast recipes.Enjoy!

Fat fast is mentioned in the Atkins book(DANDR),and he based this on the Keckwick Pawan study.(1956)

This is taken from Jimmy Moore's old post about fat fast:
So what is the Fat Fast? Here are the details:
- 1,000 calories per day
- 90 percent of calories come from dietary fat
- Eat five 200-calories “meals” every 3-4 hours
This is an extreme diet plan intended only to get your body to start burning fat and is not meant to be done for more than a few days at the very most. It is ONLY for the most metabolically resistant people in this world. Dr. Robert C. Atkins often used this method in his personal practice with patients to help those few people who can’t seem to get their low-carb lifestyle going because it works extremely well. Especially for those people who have metabolisms that are as stubborn , eating as much fat as possible while limiting carbohydrates and protein seems to do the trick. That’s why you eat 90 percent fat during this diet.

Fat fast 200-calorie “meals”:
- 1 ounce macadamia nuts
- Macadamia nut butter with 2 ounces cream cheese
- 1 ounce of tuna or chicken with 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
- 2 ounces sour cream with 2 tablespoons black or red caviar
- Half ounce heavy whipping cream with DaVinci syrup
- 2 ounces pâté
- 2 egg yolks hard-boiled with one tablespoon of mayonnaise

If weight loss begins happening while on the Fat Fast, then you may even progress to a high level of calories to see if you can continue sustaining the weight loss you are experiencing on the 1,000-calorie diet. This version consists of 1,200 calories which enables you to have four meals with 300 calories each.

This is also known as Modified fat fast.

It’s only 100 more calories, but look at what you can eat on this:
- 2 ounces of beef chuck cooked in two tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 scrambled eggs with two strips of nitrate-free bacon
- 2 tablespoons of full-fat sour cream with a tablespoon DaVinci syrup
- 1/4 cup chicken or tuna with two tablespoons of mayonnaise
- 3 ounces of pâté
- 1 1/2 ounces of macadamia nuts

More recipes from the internet.
Author: Di Bauer
1/4 cup heavy or whipping cream in a large mug of coffee
4 strips of bacon

Peanut Butter Cream Cheese
1 ounce cream cheese
1 tablespoon sugar free peanut butter
1 tablespoon heavy or whipping cream
10 drops liquid sucralose (or sugar free sweetener of your choice)
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Blend all ingredients in a small bowl.
Serves 1. Approximately 208 calories.
***Note: If you life this one, make up several servings at one time and stick them into the refrigerator in custard cups for individual servings. That way you only have one cleanup.

2 ounces of cream cheese stuffed in one large celery stalk
1/2 pork rinds with 2 ounces of sour cream

Pork Rinds With Sour Cream Dip ( Judi (Island Girl))
1/2 ounce plain pork rinds (1/6 of 3-ounce bag)
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
Blend parmesan into sour cream and use as dip for pork rinds
Without Parmesan: 164 calories, 8 grams fat (79%)
With Parmesan: 187 calories, 15 grams fat (77%)

2 tablespoons of sugar free peanut butter on an approximately 7 1/2-inch stalk of celery.

1/4 cup heavy or whipping cream, whipped, sweetened with sugar free sweetener, and flavored with vanilla or some other extract.

2 ounces of sour cream on approximately 1/2 cup sliced cucumber

Tuna or chicken salad with triple the usually amount of mayonnaise

I cook the bejeebers out of a whole chicken in the crockpot until the meat is literally falling off the bones, then shred the meat and save it for chicken salad or for soups. I strain the broth carefully (watch for small bones!) and freeze it.
I will usually reuse the broth to cook more than one chicken, which results in a superb, flavorful extra-strength broth which is great to sip on if you’re sick.

2 egg yolks mashed up with lots of mayonnaise, salt, and pepper (like you would for deviled eggs), but eaten plain or with a few pork rinds, cucumber slices, or a celery stick

Peanut Butter Pudding (This is Rani Merens‘ recipe.)
2 tablespoons of sour cream
1 teaspoon sugar free peanut butter
Splenda (to taste)
Combine all the ingredients. This thickens up magnificently, and can either be eaten “as is” or partially frozen, but don’t let it get rock hard unless you just want to suck on it.
***Note: If you life this one, make up several servings at one time and stick them into the refrigerator in custard cups for individual servings. That way you only have one cleanup.

1/4 cup heavy or whipping cream in a can of diet soda (any flavor)
1/2 package sugar free Jell-O in 1/2 cup whipped heavy or whipping cream
1/4 cup heavy or whipping cream, whipped, with 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder and a few drops of liquid sugar free sweetener added (to taste).
***Note: If you life this one, make up several servings at one time and stick them into the refrigerator in custard cups for individual servings. That way you only have one cleanup.

Jell-O Whip (Someone named Chris sent this to me a couple of years ago.)
1 small package sugar free Jell-O (any flavor)
1/2 cup boiling water
4 ice cubes
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature and cut into cubes
4 tablespoons heavy or whipping cream
Dissolve the Jell-O completely in the boiling water, then add the ice cubes to cool it down and to thicken it.
When the ice cubes are melted, pour the gelatin mixture in the blender and add the cutup cream cheese. Whirl it around until the ingredients are completely blended. Pour the mixture into a mixing bowl.
Whip the four ounces of cream, then fold it into the cream cheese mixture.
Divide the mixture into 5 equal portions, cover each with plastic wrap, and put them in the refrigerator to chill.
This makes 5 servings, or all the you need for one day of the Fat Fast. Of course, you wouldn’t have to eat all 5 servings in one day. You could alternate them with other food choices.

Fat Fast Cream Cheese Jell-O Chunks
10 ounces cream cheese, cut into 20 equal squares (Not softened!)
1 small packet sugar free Jell-O, any flavor
Pour the dry gelatin powder into a small bowl or onto a salad plate. Set aside.
Roll the 20 cream cheese squares into balls. Roll each ball in the dry gelatin mixture. Place the coated balls on a plate, cover them with plastic wrap, and put them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to eat them
Each Fat Fast serving is 4 balls.

Dana's recipes from her site:
Fat Fast Mac-and-Cheese
1 packet tofu shirataki, preferably fettuccine width
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon whipped cream cheese
1 1/4 ounces cheddar cheese — shredded
½ tablespoon coconut oil
Drain and rinse 1 packet of tofu shirataki — I like the fettuccine width or the hard-to-find macaroni version. Put ‘em in a bowl, and nuke them on high for 90 seconds or so. Drain them again. Nuke them again. Drain them again. This should get the excess water out of them.
Add everything else to the bowl, and stir till the cheese melts and you have a smooth sauce. That’s all!

Swiss “Rice” Casserole Fat Fast Recipe

Author: Dana Carpender
Nutrition Information
Serves: 16
Calories: 167
Fat: 15g (78.9% calories from fat)
Trans fat: 0g
Carbohydrates: 3g
Sugar: 0g
Fiber: 1g
Protein: 6g

This is a great side dish in general; the family will love it. It just happens to fit Fat Fast percentages, so long as you stick to a small portion, and melt a teaspoon of butter over your serving.
Ingredients
½ whole cauliflower, head – 4 cups cauliflower “rice”
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
2 tablespoons minced shallot
5 eggs – separated
1 ½ cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon salt – or Vege-Sal
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon vermouth, optional
¾ cup chopped walnuts
paprika
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350.
Spray an 8×8 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray, or grease it with butter or coconut oil.
Trim the leaves and the very bottom of the stem from your cauliflower, whack the rest into chunks, and run through the shredding blade of your food processor.
Dump your caulirice in a big mixing bowl. Put the work bowl back on the processor, and run your Swiss cheese through it; dump that in with the cauli-rice.
Mince your shallot quite fine – I did this with a knife and cutting board, because really the food processor’s too big for this little job. Add to the caulirice and cheese. Toss everything together till it’s all well-distributed, taking care to break up clumps of cheese shreds.
Swap out the shredding disc for the S-blade, and chop your walnuts to a medium consistency.
You’ll need another two bowls, one narrow and deep for whipping in. Separate your eggs, putting the yolks in one bowl, and the whites in the narrow and deep bowl. Do yourself a favor and separate them into a custard cup, one at a time, in case a yolk breaks. Even a tiny bit of yolk in your whites will keep them from whipping.
Add the cream, salt or vege-sal, nutmeg, and pepper to the yolks, and whisk the whole thing up.
Whip the whites till they’re stiff but not dry.
Now, pour the yolk-and-cream mixture into the cauliflower and cheese. Stir it in well.
Use a rubber scraper to fold the whipped egg whites into the cauliflower mixture. Now dump the whole thing in your prepared 8×8 pan, spreading evenly.
Sprinkle the chopped walnuts evenly over the top. Dust lightly with paprika.
Now bake for 45 minutes. Cut in squares to serve.

Dr Salerno's diet
Dr. John Salerno who worked with Dr. Atkins for a few years developed this diet he calls the Silver Cloud diet. Dr. Salerno mentioned that he put his patients on his own “fat fast” for upwards of four weeks. His reasoning for it was that it produced quick weight loss so you can transition to eating a regular low-carb plan again and that he didn’t see anything especially dangerous or wrong with utilizing such an approach
Usual duration is 4 weeks.
Five feedings of 200 calories each containing 90% dietary fat
Sample foods to be consumed on the Salerno Fat Fast
- 1 oz. Macadamia (15 nuts), Brazil (7 nuts), or Walnuts (15 nuts)
- 2 oz. Cream, St. Andre Cheese, or Brie.
- 2.5 oz. Beef (Chuck or Round).
- 3 slices of Fresh Slab Bacon
- 2 Egg yolks mixed with 1 oz. of mayonnaise or mixed with 1/2 a California avocado.
- 2 oz. Sour Cream (not for yeast free diets) mixed with 1 Tbsp. Caviar (This may be served on 3-4 pork rinds).
- 2 Egg yolks mixed with 2 Tbsp. of mayonnaise served on 3-4 pork Rinds.
- 2 oz. chicken, egg, shrimp, salmon, ham or crab mixed with 1 1/2 Tbsp of mayonnaise.
- 1 oz. chicken, egg, shrimp, salmon, ham or crab mixed with 1 tsp. of mayonnaise served in 1/2 a California avocado.
- 2 oz. heavy whipping cream, sweetened with DaVinci syrups. This may be beaten to make a fluffy mousse.
Choose any 5 of the above items to have during the day. The items may be repeated. Space the meals evenly throughout the day. Choose organic/free range produce whenever available. Drink at minimum 8 eight-ounce glasses of filtered water daily.

Finally some Modified fat fast ideas
courtesyARdreams blog
Modified Fat Fast Chocolate Macadamia Pudding
3 tablespoons sour cream
1 tablespoon Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder
1 teaspoon Fiberfit Liquid
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 oz macadamia nuts
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients except for the nuts.
Chop the macadamia nuts into small pieces and add to the pudding. Mix well.
You can eat this immediately or frig it for later.
This recipe contains about 4.5 net carbs and 295 calories.


Modified Fat Fast Southwest Chicken Salad

4 oz raw chicken tenderloin
1.5 tablespoons mayonnaise (no sugar added)
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/16 teaspoon ground oregano
1/16 teaspoon ground cumin seed
1/16 teaspoon onion powder
1/16 teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch black pepper
1 oz (about 1/4) avocado
Cook the chicken until no longer pink. (I microwave a frozen piece.) Cut into small pieces and let cool.
In a small bowl, mix mayo and spices together well. Add the cooled chicken and mix again.
Peel and cube the avocado. Mix gently into the chicken mixture.
Eat immediately or cover and frig for later.
This recipe contains about 1 net carb and 295 calories.
I buy chicken tenderloins frozen in a large bag and just take out what I need for a recipe. Check the label to make sure there aren’t a lot of unnecessary ingredients.

Modified Fat Fast Deviled Eggs
3 large hard boiled eggs
1 tablespoon mayonnaise (no sugar added)
1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
1/16 teaspoon garlic salt
1/16 teaspoon onion powder
Pinch black pepper
Pinch paprika (optional)
Peel the eggs and cut them in half lengthwise. Place the whites (hole side up) on a small saucer and set aside.
Put the egg yolks in a small bowl. Smash them until crumbly with the back of a spoon. Add the remaining ingredients (except paprika) and mix well.
Divide the egg yolk mixture into 6 portions and spoon into the holes in the egg whites. Sprinkle with paprika if desired.
These can be eaten immediately or stored covered in the frig for later.
This recipe contains about 2 net carbs and 313 calories. You can cut back on the mayo a little if you want to stay closer to 300 calories.

Modified Fat Fast Rocky Road Pudding
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa
1 teaspoon Fiberfit Liquid
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 oz (1/4 cup) walnut halves
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients except walnuts.
Chop walnut halves into small pieces and add to pudding.
Stir and eat or frig for later.
This recipe contains about 5 net carbs and 305 calories.

Modified Fat Fast Almond Flavor Drink
3/8 cup heavy whipping cream (not whipped)
3/4 cup cold water
1 tablespoon Da Vinci Almond Sugar-Free Syrup
Mix all ingredients together in a glass and drink immediately or frig for later.
This contains about 3 net carbs and 300 calories.
This is also good with other sugar-free syrups; I like it with berry flavors.

Modified Fat Fast Tuna & Egg Salad

1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon mayonnaise (no sugar added)
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
1/16 teaspoon onion powder
Pinch black pepper
1/4 cup tuna (1/2 of a 5 oz can, packed in water)
1 large hard boiled egg
1 oz avocado (about 1/4 of a whole avocado)
In a small bowl, mix the mayo and spices.
Drain the tuna well and add to the mayo mixture (save the other 1/2 of the can’s contents for another recipe). Mix well.
Peel and chop the boiled egg and avocado. Mix into salad gently.
You can eat this immediately or cover and frig for later.
This recipe contains about 1 net carb and 300 calories.


I was happy to discover that Steak-Umm’s frozen burger patties are 100% beef chuck and fit nicely into a Modified Fat Fast meal. If you don’t have these, you can use about 4 oz ground beef chuck instead.
Modified Fat Fast Garlicky Beef Chuck Burger
1 Steak-Umm frozen 1/3 lb burger patty
Pinch garlic salt
Pinch black pepper
Spray or oil a small frying pan and heat over medium heat. Add the burger and cook until desired doneness, turning several times to ensure even cooking.
You can thaw the patty before cooking if you like, but I just put it into the pan frozen.
Sprinkle the patty with garlic salt and pepper on each side as you are cooking it.
When the burger is done, put it on a small plate and eat it with a fork immediately.
This contains 0 net carbs and about 320 calories.

Modified Fat Fast Steak and Eggs Scramble
2 oz beef chuck
1 teaspoon butter
2 large eggs
Salt to taste
Pinch pepper
Spray or oil a small frying pan over medium-high heat.
Cut beef chuck into small pieces. Fry in the pan until no longer pink, stirring with a large spoon.
Add the butter and let it melt, then add the eggs and seasonings. Continue to stir until the eggs are cooked completely.
Put the scramble on a small plate and eat immediately.
This recipe contains about 1 net carb and 300 calories. Feel free to add more herbs and spices for more flavor variety.

Modified Fat Fast Guacamole Tuna Salad 2
3 tablespoons whipped cream cheese
1/8 teaspoon onion salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch black pepper
2 oz (about 1/2) avocado
5 oz can tuna (packed in water)
In a small bowl, mix cream cheese and seasonings.
Peel and cube the avocado. Add it to the cream cheese mixture; mix and smash with a spoon until avocado is mixed in. You can leave the mixture chunky or stir until smooth.
Drain the tuna and stir into the salad. Eat immediately or cover and frig for later.
This recipe contains about 3 net carbs and 295 calories.

This time I am tweaking my macros again for NK since I haven't been that successful last two times.while I work on getting those numbers,I thought of kickstarting with a Fat fast.

Yep I've been averaging 3 -4 days of FF a week. It works for me during the work week, and then I've been easy up on the weekends, when I have more time to cook.

I usually Fat Fast about once or twice a month for a few days at a time but am considering stepping it up and doing the same. Love to see different recipes to keep a little variety in my Fasting.

I'll just tweaked my macros today and did up a new menu. My weight loss is at a complete stop and at times I even think I'm gaining. I'll join in with you. I'll FF every wednesday. I could use this as a way to track my progress as well.

For NK days, I am aiming for about 1300 Cals: 116g fat(76%) - 66g protein (20%) - 14g carb (4%)
For FF days, I'll just use one of the recipes above (thanks lowcarbella!)

Day 1: 124.6

I dropped 5 pretty quickly when I did a strict 5 day fat fast - over two weeks later I've maintained the loss and am feeling really good with high energy.

However staying the same weight, I put on a a pair of jeans that were tight a couple of weeks ago, yesterday they were loose and baggy on me straight out of the dryer. It was not that I was a disbeliever of the inches lost theory, I just thought it didn't work that way for me
I'll take baggy clothes over scale loss any day

Hope your kid is feeling better lowcarbella. Its tough when your child is ill.

I have finally lost the weight I started putting on almost 12 days ago... I think its all due to TOM.
Day 1: 124.6
Day 2: 123.5
Day 3: 122.4

I am just going to wait for the next stall to try a fat fast and see what happens. I'm really curious.

Had a very busy very stressful week .
Did not do fat fast as planned,just stayed low key low carb high fat.
Today I was nervous to weigh -in ,but the scale showed 182.6,so no harm done.

I start today with a modified fat fast.
Day 1:182.6

His reasoning for it was that it produced quick weight loss so you can transition to eating a regular low-carb plan again and that he didn’t see anything especially dangerous or wrong with utilizing such an approach. Usual duration is 4 weeks.
I was wondering about this myself the morning. I remembered I had severe morning sickness the first month of my pregnancy and lived on french fries and tomato soup for a whole month. Doc wasn't worried and I wasn't taking any supplements except the usual prenatal vitamins. I lost about 3kg in that month as I couldn't keep my food down either, but by the end of the month when I began to feel better, I just continued onto the usual foods...
So I was wondering, if we did a FF like this (of course not indefinitely but for 3-4 weeks with normal NK re-feeding on maybe weekends) how will it affect us?

Well, tbh, todays going to be my first FF day. I decided I'll stick to FF on weekdays (Sun-Thu here) and NK (Fri-Sat) on weekends. I do track my weight daily, but I'll post as a batch on Thursday. My previous posts have been on NK so its easy to see *progress* (I hope) and fluctuations as I FF.
With all the fluctuations and me going down and coming back up to the same '56kg' (been seeing it forever now ) I am just going to hold of posting till thursday. Also I would like to do FF as well as possible before the next round of PMS and TOM, so when I start gaining weight again, *hopefully* its going to be less than '56-57kg'

I'm in for another round of Fat Fast this week. I miss how I felt, when purely on plan, a few carbys have been sneaking in here and there and I've been bouncing up and down the same 3/4 lbs, which are totally natural body fluctuations, I know, but I'd like to knock another solid 5 lbs off.

I've got a body fat test, where you get dunked, for a really accurate reading, Nov 7th, so it will be great to knock some body fat off by then

Well ,Elliot,it seems we do have a lot in common.I have forever been staying at this weight of 180s this year.Up a few ,down a few.

I had posted my struggles with weekend binge issues that was getting out of hand a few posts earlier.I tried several things,some worked,some didn't.I had enrolled in a 90 day weight loss competition,thinking that would motivate me not to binge on weekends.While the issue has improved ,there are only a few weeks left and I am nowhere near where they want me to be in order to be one of the winners

I had decided a few weeks back that I will do IF,Fat fast ,modified FF during weekdays and NK during weekend.This has finally shown some promise as I am binge free for the past few weeks.(had struggled for over a year)
Only time will tell if it works for me long term.

I have about 32 lbs to go reach goal weight.I am trying to stay NK on weekends and every other week and fat fast otherwise.Mixing things up maybe what I need to drop the weight.I have also promised myself to try a few recipes from the FF cookbook every now and then.

So are you with me?

We could team up and do this.I would be happy to see 170s again.I am giving myself 4-6 months to reach goal weight as I have a huge function coming up.
I also need to ramp up my workouts.they are almost non-existent after some injuries i had on my foot and a hernia after preggo.I plan to slowly build-up on toning and strengthening.I am also looking into Chi-running,as I heard they are injury free for most part.
My long term goals include running a 5k or 10 k,but now I am in pretty bad shape and has a long way to go to get there fitness wise.

I have started this week.No more excuses.I might post progress as a bunch instead of daily,but I will be following along.First goal is 178.

That's cool to get those done.I have heard they are the most accurate test that exists.Good luck!

My plan today, coffee with HWC, that usually lasts me until 1pm.

Keeping it simple for the first couple of days.

1oz macadamia nuts. (14-15 nuts)
Tuna/Mayo on 1/4 avocado.
2oz brie.

Rinse and repeat for 5 x200 cal servings, until I get completely bored

Yes, I could really use the accountability. However I am going to have a hard time with the recipe options. I tried a few today and didn't like anything. So tomorrow I am going to just go with HWC and maybe some thing else... just need to figure out what.
Foot injuries are also something I have been battling. A reason why I am so desperate to lose this weight. Maybe you can start with light walking... not too long but slow and steady? I wanted to run marathon in Jan, but I am not ready for it yet, my best bet would be a half marathon in feb. I did a 10k last year (walked mostly) and this next weekend I have the same event, but I doubt I'll be any faster (than last year) This time I plan to run.. er walk in NK so thats an improvement at least

I would like to drop 6.5 lbs now and then another 6.5lbs. Then try to maintain that. So my first FF weight goal would be to reach 117 lbs.

Elliot,Could you tell me what you tried?
taste is a very personal thing.
For fat fast,I recommend 2 oz cream cheese,macadamia,brie cheese,cheddar,sour cream etc.Not recipes but I like the taste esp with all that fat.
I make recipes only usually for modified FF.
I use whatever meat dis I prepared in 2 oz serv + a fat like cream cheese spread/sour cream.easy and quick

I eat cream cheese, specifically for NK, but I dont enjoy it, so having a day of cream cheese with anything is just too much . Macadamia nuts, too expensive to have 5 days straight. I might buy them and roast them for use while traveling so maybe I can FF while on the road . The other cheese, mayo... not too fond of them either.

I have been drinking HWC for breakfast & lunch. For dinner I have some fried chicken or chicken curry with cheese. Cant get my head around eating 5 times a day. I find it easier this way.

As to the weight loss, cant really say I have lost much, but I think I'm losing... Its one day down then one day up. So I try to see my weight over 2 days to be sure if its up or down on average.
Will post my updates on Thursday night (US time).

Morning guys. Thought i would join you over here. I think my protein is still a little high but I'm doing ok. I'm down 3 lbs since tuesday so i will take that!!
I am having bpc for breakfast and then having a superfood shake at about 11a with mct oil. then my homemade soup with coconut oil for lunch. I made a fat bomb for a snack.
My appetite is pretty nill. I love that. I made oopsies for the first time over the weekend...awesome!!!
I love them. I have to add some flax or psyllium next time though so they wont be so sticky. But they are great. I have been having tuna with mayo on an oopsie for dinner.
Glad to see everyone else losing a little. Oh, im also not lifting weights at all right now. I'm only doing cardio. Kickboxing in the morning and a walk at lunch. Today i did a longer kickboxing session and im already feeling it. I am hungry already. I should have just kept it to a 30 min lighter video but turbojam is so fun!!!
Have a good Halloween guys!!

Its hard when you don't like some NK foods,I myself had a long journey trying to like the taste of LC.but now I don't mind at all.Our tastes adapt over time.
I am down 2 pounds too,but was hungry one day and had great appetite supression another.
Just made some candy with CO,cocoa and stevia,just in case ,for the halloween temptations.
I have lost a total 6 pounds in last couple weeks,and found to my delight,a few outfits ,fits me better.

Congrats lowcarbella!!!
I would love to lose about 10 lbs by the 12th!!! I dont know if it is possible but im going to keep on this fat fast as long as i can. I may have to eat all protein one day just ot give myself some if i start craving it too bad.
I have gotten down to about 50 grams a day so thats pretty good i think.
I am loving being used to not eating breakfast!! Even if my tummy slightly grumbles it is so easy to ignore it. And i am so surprised on how the bpc really suppresses my appetite.
I am doing 1T co, 1/2T ghee and 1/2T regular real butter. The ghee is too expensive to be using 1T per day!!!
And im adding lglutamine to my bpc and to my coffee shake i drink about 1130a.
So far so good. tonight will be tuna with mayo on a lettuce leaf.

I wish everyone luck this evening with all of the candy!! Be strong. it doesnt even faze me right now. there was candy being passed around the office the last 2 days and i didnt even have a nibble!! I am loving that!!!
