    Fat fast

    Anyone ever try the Atkins fat fast diet? Did it work and what did you eat? How many days did you do it for?

    Yes, I've heard of it. Dr. Atkins recommended it only for people who were severely overweight and with severe metabolic problems.... and it was to be undertaken only under the supervision of a physician. Do you have a metabolic issue?

    It's not a 'diet.' Dr. Atkins recommended it for people with severe metabolic problems (as noted above) and for no longer than 10 days!

    And he diagnosed the 'metabolic problems' in terms of someone eat <20g carbs a day, yet experiencing no weight loss or decrease in measurements for at least 6 weeks.

    However, if this is your situation, I'd recommend a check up rather than just going on the 'fat fast.' You may need some hormonal regulation.
