You might think that eating a diet that is 90% fat would take a lot of discipline. You may even doubt that you can do it. This book will change your mind. While Dr. Atkins suggested five feedings a day of things like "two egg yolks with a tablespoon of mayonnaise," "two ounces of cream cheese," or "one ounce of macadamia nuts," Dana Carpender and the CarbSmart team have cooked up some recipes that are rich, interesting, varied, and very filling. You can enjoy some really tasty treats that will keep hunger at bay while you rev up your metabolism with the magic of nutritional ketosis.
Some, like Mac and Cheese, Fettuccine with Pancetta Cream, and Curried Coconut Cream of Chicken Soup, will make you feel like you've had a full meal. There are also plenty of treats here, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Cheese Mousse, for example.
These are recipes that you will continue to make long after you have reached your ideal weight. For some of you, just replacing one meal a day with a fat-fast dish may be enough to keep your metabolism in a happy place. I've opted for Keto Coffee (actually I do Keto Mocha) for breakfast, which may provide the same anti-aging, anti-cancer, and other benefits as intermittent fasting, while also helping with weight maintenance. (And one less meal a day to prepare!)
If you want to lose weight without losing muscle, if you need to break a weight-loss stall, if you want to turn your body into a fat-burning machine, the 50 recipes in The Fat Fast Cookbook can start the fire.
Judy Barnes Baker, author of "Nourished; a Cookbook for Health, Weight Loss, and Metabolic Balance"
The book does say not to do the fast for more than 5 days, and you must be careful to resume a low carb diet after this or the weight will rush back on you. I don't see this diet as a lifetime weight loss fix, but if you need to drop some weight fast for a special reason or if you have stalled, this should work. I used several of her recipes and I have to say that my only complaint is that the Shirataki noodles (a very low carb type of pasta she recommends to make the pasta recipes) are absolutely disgusting to me. I have tried two brands and they have a weird rubbery-ness and mouth feel I cannot tolerate. I tried the fettuccine and the macaroni and cheese and couldn't finish much of either because the Shirataki made me sick to my stomach. I did notice some of the reviewers saying that the mac and cheese recipe is delicious. Well, I just tried it and thanks to those darned noodles I would call it absolutely gross instead. The cheese sauce however would be great over some vegetables so I will substitute those in the future. You may enjoy the noodles but I certainly did not! Regardless, this little book is a Godsend for me. I have been trying to lose 10lbs for a long time and this has helped significantly. I had only started a low carb diet about 2 weeks prior to starting the fat fast. Please note that at least one reviewer said they got heart palpitations doing this or other very low carb diets so it is probably better to be on a low carb diet for a while before starting this to see how your body responds. Also, do more reading on the subject on the benefits of fat in your diet. I recommend "Eat Fat, Lose Fat: The Healthy Alternative to Trans Fats" by Mary Enig and also "Nourishing Traditions" by Sally Fallon for great nutrition/food/food industry information. Another reviewer recommended them and I bought and got a lot of valuable information too. That said, I'm keeping this book!
8/15/14 update: I am trying this again, now on day 3. Unlike last time, this time I went from a standard diet (not low carb at all) directly into the fat fast. I am visibly losing weight but have been incredibly & unreasonably tired and this is with only one light workout these past few days. I have not had any heart palpitations but apparently there is a reason for not going from a standard diet straight into the fat fast. The author did give a very brief explanation of why you shouldn't do this; that it will make you feel awful because your body won't know where to get energy from (but I decided to do it anyway since there is no mention of physical/medical harm). I recommend following her instructions and not going rogue like I have. I am a healthy, active person so I can deal with it this time but I won't do it this way again! I also think the book would be much better if there was information on how to come out of the fast. I can imagine that one needs to begin consuming a lower fat and higher protein diet and very slowly re-introducing carbs, but what is the process exactly so that one doesn't experience rebound weight gain? A section in the book on transitioning into eating "normally" once the fat fast is finished is greatly needed. I could probably use Atkins information to help me, but I think the authors should make this a thorough book and provide that information rather than making one guess. I still give it 5 stars because it definitely works if you don't deviate from it. The food is really not tasty enough to keep me doing this for more than 4 days max but I have found enough acceptable recipes to last a few days, and they do keep me satiated until it's time for the next small meal. I also have not craved carbs on this diet either time I've tried it, coming from both a low carb diet to the fat fast, and a standard diet to the fat fast. Once again, don't go from a standard diet to a fat fast. You WILL feel awful.
