    Judg, that's good to read. I'm getting there. I managed not to talk myself into the chocolate, even today...so far. I want it and I know why I do, but I'm going to try my hardest to stay disciplined with this until I can get out of the sugar problem. I read Mark's post with 7 more foods. Oh, I'm going to have to get rid of my agave nectar. Honestly, it's kind of fine with me because I miss honey. The local honey here has a slight bitter taste to it because of the wildflower origins and it's kind of tantalizing. However, it's going to have to wait a bit. Thankfully my allergies are much better this year, so I won't need the tablespoon a day.

    Ecks, dear goodness, if I could hug you right now, I would! Thank you

    I had a great day yesterday! I got some dancing in and did my workout sort of later on in the evening. Gabi had stayed over one more night at her friends house, so I was on my own.

    Today, I was going to fast this morning, but my tummy wanted some food. So, I had some salmon, strawberries, guacamole, a little aoli sauce, two pickle spears, and some sliced tomatoes for lunch since I didn't eat breakfast this morning. I slept in for a bit. Sleeping in on the weekends for me is like 8 A.M. and that worked out just fine. I think I'll start the two day fast tomorrow and see what happens. I'm going to need to buy the supplies today.

    Yesterday
    Breakfast: 5 pcs bacon
    S: 1 small avocado, mixed nuts
    L: Celery, sliced roasted chicken, and cubed ham
    S: Microwave roasted almonds in melted goat cheese butter
    D: 4 more pcs bacon
    S after dancing all night long: 3 egg omelette with sauteed chopped up yellow and orange bell pepper and onion. Cooked the veggies in olive oil and the eggs in bacon grease

    Drinks: Water, coconut milk, and one Smirnoff Ice (I know, bad idea) I think I might ask next time if they have the hard cider.

    I had a blast dancing last night even if the place wasn't packed. Ran into some coworkers and a good time was had by all.

    Ok, I found everything but the last two items on this list. I'll still be okay, right? Oh, and mayo that's made right for the egg salad. Stinking store, even the olive oil mayo had canola oil in it!

    I break it down to 5 200-calorie 'meals'. Definitely try to get two of your meals to be pork rinds/nuts/chewy bacon, because I found the hardest thing about this is the lack of CHEWING! Eat as slowly as you can, because 200 calories of fat can disappear VERY quickly. Drink plenty of water between meals to give your mouth something to do.

    Energy-wise, I had no problems with getting through my day. The main challenge is that it is SO boring. I am used to meals being pleasurable. This, not so much.

    I am still trying to wrap my mind around the idea of a fat fast. What does it accomplish?

    Odille went on a protein-only diet for three days and lost 2.5 kilos. That's 5.5 pounds.
    5'2", 55 years, Primal since April. Pre-Primal weight loss, from 216.6 to 157.8
    Primal low: 140.2 (Dec. 3) Goal weight: 135?
    Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again

    More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.

    If you have all that stuff, Alessandra, you will be set for a magnificent fat fast. The Liquid Fat Bomb, and Bee's Candida Egg drink can be found by searching the Recipes thread for links. Bee has a very interesting site on battling Candida (among other things). I hope it works well for you. How long are you planning to do it?

    Judg- The Atkins Fat Fast was promoted by Dr. Atkins as a way to get into ketosis for those who are metabolically-resistant, or to break a long-term plateau. It was based on some research from the 50s by two British doctors. It is supposed to spare muscle, in addition to burning (some) fat. I have found it very useful as a way to rid myself of sugar/starch cravings after a period of bad eating, when I'll eat right for a day or two, cheat, eat right, cheat, curse myself for giving in, you know the drill. It is meant to be a short-term thing, a few days, perhaps up to a week for the hard cases, NOT a long-term diet.

    I'm on the first day of the fast. I'm wondering if I should have passed breakfast this morning because I'm actually more hungry than I would be if I were just IF'ing. Although, after how I ate yesterday, this is probably a good idea.

    Yesterday
    L: Jason's deli Salmon, a little bit of aoli sauce, some guacamole sauce, sliced tomatoes, lettuce, some pickle spears.
    Snacks or whatnot: I think I had a total of 5 hotdogs. Two sips of koolaid to make sure my kids and her friends grabbed the right drinks at the pool party we were at. One of them grabbed the drink from the wrong drink container and it had rum in it.
    D: Greek salad with grilled chicken. And a couple of boneless chicken wings (yes, breaded. Bad Alessandra)
    Drinks: Water and unsweetened iced tea
    Workout: P.E.M. and a little swimming

    Okay, I think I might just do one day of this thing and I may have gone slightly over my caloric intake, but I now have a healthy appreciation for liver wurst. Shhhhh, don't tell my dad that. I've got to throw this out there about just this one day thing. One, if you would have told me a year ago today that I'd be okay with eating fried pork skin on a more regular basis, I might have looked at you like you were a crack head. Two, if you would have said the same thing about liver wurst, I would have looked at you like you've been hanging out with my Dad too much. That look would have been about the same as the crack head one.

    I didn't ask about seasoning the brie cheese, but it's getting some seasoning tomorrow. Mascarpone cheese is good stuff mixed in with avocado. I do also believe I might be slightly hooked on some Kerry Gold butter. Wow, smooth! I like that quite a bit.

    Oh yeah! Mom gave me her dehydrator SCORE! I can start making my own beef jerky....Nom Nom! I don't like most of the jerky's out there (lol, that's kind of funny in my head) because they're usually overseasoned and too dang spicy. I do not like spice to overpower my food. I want to taste the main ingredient! Plus, I can dehydrate other stuff for snacks. Hmmm, this could cut down on my camping trip costs more SCORE!

    Today
    B: 3 slices bacon, macadamia nuts
    S: Liver wurst, fried pork skins
    L: Mashed avocado with mascarpone cheese and some heavy whipping cream (not bad taste all by itself)
    S: The rest of the liver wurst and some more fried pork skins. Oh and a piece of mom's pork roast. I'm saving the rest for tomorrow
    Exercise: 10 Minute Trainer Cardio and Abs. I did go to the pool, but no swimming because it was pretty crowded. I think tomorrow morning, after the Trainer session, I might go for a swim when there's pretty much no one there.

    Ok, so I like the idea of this fast, but I may approach it differently next time I try it. I'm thinking of skipping breakfast if I'm not hungry and only eating when I need to with the foods on the list. This will be for weekends only. I know I won't do well with this at work.

    Tomorrow is a chill day for the most part. One of my old NCO's from 101st Airborne is going to in town for an interview with my company. So, we're going to visit with he and his wife, hopefully, in the evening and get some dinner. I can't wait to see this guy! Gabi's 12, so that's about how many years it's been. He was a really cool guy back then when we were stationed together.

    Ok, I've updated my sig line for my goals. I'm going to keep my training goals out of there for now. Mostly because I think I put on too much to update. I did go back up two pounds, but I should have updated that a while ago. I know the sugar thing has been a thorn in my side about the weight loss, but I haven't been walking as much in the evenings. So, that's going to have to change. I'm just going to keep my weight and body fat percentage up there for now.

    I am super enjoying watching your fat fast -- vicarious thrills or something -- but somehow, I can't quite conceive of it as a fast:-) Maybe I'd call it a fat feast! Hey, what exactly do you do with the liverwurst? Just slice it and go for it? Do you buy regular liverwurst? It'll be an interesting experiment, that's for sure. Keep us posted. Yeah, your Mom. That's one of the things we moms are supposed to do -- give our kids all our electrical appliances!! Maybe that's how I've learned to get along with one wok and one pot!!!

    Fat feast, yup, does sound more like it...

    Have you done this before, Alessandra? Does it help vanquish the cravings? I can rather understand why it wouldn't work at work, LOL!
