Introducing your new low carb weight loss tools: The Fat Fast and Nutritional Ketosis.
Your Weight Loss Stall Is Not Your Fault
For years you’ve been told that eating fat makes you fat and that a calorie is a calorie is a calorie. Anyone who understands the science of Low Carb dieting knows this is just not true.
Who would have thought that the fastest way to lose fat – while maintaining muscle mass – was to eat mostly fat?!
In testing, the Fat Fast – 5 Days, 1000 calories per day, 90% from pure fat – resulted in average fat loss – not just weight loss, but fat loss – of over a pound per day! It’s a radical, short-term strategy, but boy, does it work – and it’s based on clinical research.
The Fat Fast Cookbook includes 50 fabulous low carb, high fat recipes that can help you break your weight loss stall or help your body become keto-adapted, catapulting you into Nutritional Ketosis. It does this with 50 great recipes to help you implement the Fat Fast.
Break Your Weight Loss Stall with the Atkins Fat Fast
Popularized by Dr. Robert Atkins in his book Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution, the Fat Fast is the most powerful tool for getting metabolically resistant low carb dieters back into Nutritional Ketosis and restarting their low carb weight loss.
Restart Your Low Carb Weight Loss With Nutritional Ketosis
Nutritional Ketosis is a metabolic state in which we use stored body fat for energy. The Fat Fast helps low carbers break weight loss plateaus and rapidly get back to burning fat for fuel when they have gone off plan.

About the Author
Best-selling author Dana Carpender was startled to discover that limiting her carbohydrate intake not only helped her control her weight, but produced the health and vitality a low fat diet had promised but never delivered. Years later, she laughs at people who say “You can’t eat that way long-term.” Her cookbooks are the result of her realization that the key to permanent dietary change is the answer to the age-old question, “What’s for supper?” To date they have sold over a million copies worldwide. Dana blogs about low carb nutrition at http://www.HoldtheToast.com; her weekly blog digest goes out to over 20,000 readers. She is also Managing Editor of CarbSmart Magazine at http://www.CarbSmart.com, as well as a featured staff writer. Dana lives in Bloomington, IN with her husband and a menagerie of pets, all of whom are well and healthily fed.
A great value for anyone following a ketogenic diet. Packed with easy to read, easy to follow recipes made for single persons or (as most of us are) the only person in a family following a low carb diet. Most recipes center around the same core ingredients that are easy to stock your pantry with, and each is usually only 3-6 ingredients and mere minutes of prep and cook time! The fat fast itself is a scientifically proven, fool-proof method to weight loss and butt-kicking levels of ketosis. The foreword in this book explains rationale, the chemical process, and common recipe ingredients and substitutions. If you have this book, you will use it often, and let me guarantee you will never go unsatisfied. Also a lifesaver for potlucks and picnics if you’re low-carbing – many recipes are salads or quick appetizers that suit themselves to sharing effortlessly and even non-low carbers will be thrilled by (jalapeno poppers, celery sticks with blue cheese, pepperoni dip, guacamole, egg salad, mousses and mini cheesecakes… the list goes on and on.)
Well, I lost 4lbs within 2 days of using this formula and I had more energy and less hunger than I have ever had on any low calorie diet. Normally for me, consuming only 1200 calories in a day would leave me starving and in a very foul mood. However, this book recommends shooting for a daily consumption of 1000 calories of some very high fat foods, and up to but not exceeding 1200 calories per day. I stayed close to the 1200 range. I was truly amazed that eating these high fat foods could actually trigger my long-stalled weight loss and keep me pretty satisfied as well as cheerful throughout the day. I’m pretty amazed by it and I am a person who always need to be eating something and is constantly wondering what my next meal will be. Interestingly, I didn’t feel these impulses on this diet. You must get it to read the science behind it, I won’t go into that or pretend I am now an expert. I just did what it said and it worked! 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.
I am a 49-year old woman with 30 pounds to lose, with hormonal issues (pre-menopause and high cortisol from stress and night shift work), and who is moving from pre-diabetic to T2D, according to my latest test results. I have been on a keto diet with intermittent fasting for seven months. I lost about five pounds, and then nothing, no matter what. I saw some health improvements but the weight would not budge and the fasting got harder and harder. After a couple of highly stressful life issues over the winter, my blood sugar/insulin resistance has worsened. So my doctor agreed I could try the Fat Fast to improve insulin, stabilize my blood sugar with the five small feedings a day, and maybe lose weight. After one week, I feel much better, my fasting and post-meal blood glucose is normal and I’ve lost 7 pounds! Dana’s books really made it possible for me to succeed, because I couldn’t stick to the Fat Fast eating eggs, cream cheese and macadamia nuts as suggested by Atkins and some keto diet websites. I have both Fat Fast and Fat Fast 2 cookbooks. I respectfully disagree on some points with some other reviewers: —I found enough variety of delicious recipes to easily eat for a week without getting bored, both sweet and savory recipes. I tweaked some that didn’t appeal to me and kept them within the guidelines. —I love the pasta recipes, but I bought the Weight Watchers Skinny Noodles fettuccini instead of Miracle Noodles. It doesn’t smell and I don’t have a problem with the texture – reminds me of al dente pasta. It’s wonderful to eat Mac & Cheese and Alfredo or Carbonara sauce again. —I love that most recipes make 1 to 2 servings. I either package the other one to take to work, or serve it to my husband who has liked everything. It’s very convenient for our lifestyle and I get to eat much more variety than making big pans of low carb dishes. —I love that the nutritional macros are listed – makes it so easy to track. My recent T2D diagnosis means that I have no choice but to make this a permanent dietary change. I plan to do that by adding some protein and adding one or two additional feedings per day to keep calories at a healthy level for someone with my body type (short, small frame). I will likely follow Jacqueline Eberstein’s suggestions (in the first part of Fat Fast 2) to perhaps Fat Fast during the week and do Atkins induction (higher calorie intake) on weekends until I reach goal weight. For me that is something practical that I can actually follow through with. If you’re interested in the safety of a longer term Fat Fast, I found a blog on Jimmy Moore’s website that talked about an interview he did with a Dr. Salerno who regularly puts his metabolically resistant patients on a four week Fat Fast. It appeared Dr. Salerno finds that it helps for metabolically resistant older women like myself with hormone and insulin issues. Hope this helps someone like me looking for solutions.
