Dr. Atkins popularized the Fat Fast, based on the Keckwick diet developed in the 1950s by Prof. Alan Keckwich and Dr. Gaston Pawen. Fat fasting forces the body to burn stored fat by depriving it of glucose (sugar). Since even protein can be partially converted to glucose via a process called gluconeogenesis, eliminating almost everything but fat guarantees that even those who are most metabolically resistant to weight loss will switch to burning fat rather than sugar. By limiting calories to 1,000 per day, stored fat will make up the difference between the dietary fat coming in and energy needs.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.
FULL DISCLOSURE: I am one of the contributors to some of the content used and a contributing writer to CarbSmart who published this book.Since May 2012, I have personally been engaged in an n=1 self-experiment of a concept known as "nutritional ketosis." This phrase to describe the very healthy state of generating ketone bodies as an alternative fuel source to glucose in the body has been used quite prominently in a series of books (namely New Atkins for a New You, The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living and The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance) in recent years and it has rekindled interest in a concept that was first promoted by the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins of Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution fame.If you've ever read Dr. Atkins' books, then you know he advocated for and pushed this thing called the "fat fast" which is a very high-fat, moderate protein, very low-carbohydrate nutritional approach. The purpose of this was as a means for kicking your weight (and more appropriately your stored body fat) loss program into high gear by pressing the issue about fueling your body on ketones instead of glucose (sugar).
Having a very insulin resistant body,low fat low calorie diets never work for me.Low carb diets did work until a short while ago.Losing the last 40 pounds has been gruelling,and I had put on weight despite being very low carb.Thats when the idea of Nutritional Ketosis made sense.I have tried several diets before and none of them worked ,leaving me desperate.Increasing the fat,moderating the protein and keeping carbs under 20 grms from low impact veggies has made all the difference in the world.I can lose only on fat fasting and a level slightly above it.Any higher I go,I stop losing.Being so metabolically resistant,I knew Fat fast and Extended Fat Fast is the way to go,but I wanted some variety than eating blocks of cream cheese or macadamia nuts.Thats when this book comes handy,and I had been waiting for it so long.This book contains 50 recipes.One good thing is that it contains several veggie dishes including a fat fast salad,other veggies and soup.Those were the items I missed on fat fasts.I also wish they had more recipes.It also contains some useful info on fat fasting.For many people,doing a fat fast will truly get them into ketosis.Other low carb diets and so called ketogenic diets may or may not,depending on your body's resistance.I saw recipes that contains potatoes,dates or honey in cookbooks claiming to promote themselves as ketogenic.A true ketogenic diet induces ketosis, as can be tested using keto strips from sample blood,not urine.Also more and more research emphasises the theraupatic effects of truly ketosis inducing diets for cancer,alzheimers,epilepsy,neuro-related,tumors,autism ,fibromalgia,diabetes and so much more modern civilisation diseases.
