This is fantastic advice IMO. Back when I did the UD2 and was reading a lot by Lyle McDonald (who is an overly pompous and self-righteous douche, but he is smart and knows his stuff), he recommended everyone do a full week eating larger amounts of carbohydrates to "reset" their metabolism. Obviously, you'd have to drop fats in lieu of the carbs, but your metabolism seems to be less affected by brief periods of low-fat than brief periods of low-carb.

I've probably been averaging 40-50g of fat/day, so I probably shouldn't immediately jump into the 100+g range. I think I'll do the first week upping carbs on off-days to 150g/day and bumping fats to 70g/day for a whole week, THEN I'll drop carbs to the 75g range and up fats. I have learned by now that the body doesn't respond well to change and "gradual" seems to be usually preferrential to "shock." 40g/fat per day to 100g/fat per day is closer to "shock" than I want to be. I'm sure I'll in the short term GAIN fat with this change, but in the long run, I think it'll benefit.
