Don’t Throw in the Weight Loss Towel
Are you ready to throw in the “weight loss” towel? One reason that weight loss may be practically impossible is that you are in metabolic limbo. There is a quick weight loss diet tool that can help.
When I worked at the Atkins Center and patients hit a plateau, we used a calorie restricted fat fast to help give them a jumpstart. If you are not losing weight, you may need to try something that will rock your world and shock your system into submission. Try something completely contrary to the imagination…try a fat fast.
A fat fast works for people who are dedicated dieters and are having a difficult time losing weight. If you’re having difficulty losing weight DO NOT THROW IN THE WEIGHT LOSS TOWEL.
What Is A Fat Fast?
A fat fast is a quick weight loss diet that will trick your body into thinking it is fasting. When in truth you are eating 1000-1200 calories/day.
In order to help reset your system, 80-90% of your calories should be from healthy fats. You will break your meals into 5 small 200-250 calorie mini-meals for 5 days.
Fat makes you feel full. It is also the nutrient that has the least effect on your hormones. If you are not losing weight and hormones are the cause, they will no longer interfere with your weight loss progress.
If the fat fast works, you will have found the answer to your weight loss problem.
Recipes For A Quick Weight Loss Diet
As most low-carbers typically consume 60-75% fat eating a little more fat should not be that difficult. This quick weight loss diet has worked for many people including Dana Carpendar. Thanks to her book, “Fast Fat Cookbook” the fat fast is much easier and tastier.
Read Dana’s unbelievable yet true, story. I had a chance to interview Dana to get a more personal perspective and better insight into her latest masterpiece.

Fat Fast Interview With Dana Carpender
Valerie: What are your favorite recipes in the book?
Dana: I really like the shirataki recipes, especially the Asian noodles and the fettuccine with pancetta cream sauce. And the pepperoni chips are crazy-good, though I try not to eat processed meats too regularly. When given a choice, I would prefer Farm Fresh Meat over processed meat any day!
Valerie: Have you had any feedback on hunger or negative side effects? Positive side effects?
Dana: Nope, except people telling me they’ve broken months-long plateaus and lost 3-5 pounds in a few days.
Valerie: How long can someone follow the fat fast safely?
Dana: I don’t think anyone really knows for sure. The longest I’m aware that it’s been used in clinical research is 10 days. Jackie Eberstein, who worked with Dr. Atkins for thirty years, puts those who are seriously metabolically resistant on a rotating schedule of 5 days of Fat Fasting, 2 days of Induction. She has people follow this for as long as they can handle it, or until they’ve lost all their weight, whichever comes first. I trust Jackie’s judgment and years of experience.
Valerie: Yes I worked with Jackie for many years at the Atkins Center and I second that opinion. What are the ranges of calories and macronutrient breakdown in your fat fast and recipes?
Dana: We kept the recipes in the neighborhood of 200-250 calories each. They range from just under 80% of calories from fat to at least 96% calories from fat. I’ve arranged them in groups by fat content. This way it’s easy to figure that if you eat something in the 80% range earlier in the day, you need to choose something in the 90%-and-above range later in the day to balance it out.
Valerie: What is the average amount of time to complete the recipes?
Dana: Varies quite a bit. You can make pepperoni chips or Keto Coffee in just a few minutes, but the Coconut Flax Bread will take over an hour. However, once you have that bread in your fridge, all it takes is cutting a slice and spreading it with butter or cream cheese, and you’ve got a quick Fat Fast “feeding.”
Valerie: Any important aspects of the book that we have not discussed and that may be important?
Dana: It’s useful for more than Fat Fasting. Anyone who is trying to stay in a good, deep ketosis will find it helpful, whether they’re doing it for weight loss, or to fight cancer, or to treat dementia. It should also be very helpful for parents with kids who are on a keto diet for seizure control.
