Share your Fat Fast success stories please

I'm thinking about doing it for 3-4 days.

Did a 5 day one about two weeks ago. Lost 8 pounds give or take.

Lots of bacon, eggs, mayo and canned chicken. It's critical you watch your calories. One day I bumped up to about 1600 calories and the weight loss stalled. My sweet spot was about 1200-1400 cal. I also had a really hard problem getting to 90% fat. The best I could manage was 86% one day.

NOt a success story here.
I tried it, but couldn't make it past one day.
All that grease gave me stomach problems.
I admit though, i was early on in my Atkins woe, having coming off the "recommende" low fat high carb regime of 25 years or so.
I wonder if now that I'm used to a high fat diet if perhaps I wouldn't be able to tolerate it. I guess i'll never know because regular low carb is doing just fine. I feel great and have lost a bunch of weight.
Good luck to you.

I'm using it one day a week. I don't know yet if I have success. I'm dwn 3 lb for the month, but I started the month high, so I'm curious to see what the next month brings.

This I have learned: it isn't that hard, relatively. I have a desire to eat more, but the actual hunger isn't too bad. And I do lose weight, though I put some of it back on in subsequent days. So, it shows me that my weight-loss sweet spot is somewhere between fat fast and what I do the rest of the time. That motivates me to try and find it.

I feel best on fat. I half wish I could just live on an olive oil IV and not have to deal with the rest!

I'd love to hear your experiences.
Yvonne

Fat fasts. Can we chat?

Pre stroke I lost my 60 lbs with some fat fasting.

I felt very satisfied with my macadamia nuts and cream cheese and bacon and eggs meals. I also put a bit of coconut oil in my coffee

Hi Judi! I haven't done a fat fast in years. But one that I have done just last month and plan on doing again starting Monday is an egg fast. We are talking about it over on the nutritional ketosis board. Mellissa at I breathe I'm hungry did it then posted a whole menu and guidelines. You might want to check it out!
