Hi guys! Sorry for my absence. As mentioned earlier I’ve had a family member over. So been quite busy over the weekend. And I’ve been wine and dining for the past 4 days(!). I like wine and dining, but I prefer having a more “healthy” food and drink intake. Yesterday I had my last meal of carbs, italian to be precise. Probably the best to end with before I start on the Ketogenic diet. But today people, today I start the fat fasting!
What is fat fasting?
It basically a way of eating for 3-5 days to get yourself in ketosis quickly, hit a fat loss plateau, or if you have had a so-called cheat meal(carbs) while living on a ketogenic diet and want to get yourself back in ketosis. You will eat 80-90 % of your food just from fat and the rest 20-10 % from protein. I’m going to try to keep it 80-85 % fat and 20-15 % protein. You can eat nuts, full fat cheese, double cream, eggs, fatty fish, oils etc. It’s quite restricted, but its only for a couple of days. And you will only consume 1000-1200 kcal for these days. After this is finished you can go on a keto diet and eat “normal”.
They say you will lose 5-8 pounds(ca 2-4 kg) in just three days while on fat fasting or up to 10 pounds(4-5kg) if doing it for 5 days! However like pretty much all crash diets you will gain some of it back, if not all.
