anyweight lost quickly like that is usually water weight. The safe amount to lose is 2 lb per week - then you know its not just water, its fat too.

when is the wedding?

That's true if you're just dieting normally and really restricting your calories... However this fat fast thing is specifically for people who are metabolically resistant. It forces your body to use stored fat as a form of energy.

The reasons and explanations are in the referenced articles... Take a read... It's interesting if nothing else.

Zazi, you're timing of this post couldn't be better!! I was online, getting info. for my hubby, who's planning to do the Atkin's diet; I cheated, and went to TCS, and voila! here is this post! I've gone to the link, and am downloading "The Fat Fast", so now, I will return to the TCS posts, guilt-free, and see what else might be useful for him.

This seemes to be a very low sugar diet - be careful, too little sugar and you just waste muscle even faster. Sure you will be thin - but floppy spaghetti thin, not a nice toned slim.

Day 3:

Well i started off this diet at 55.6kg. This morning i was 54.1kg!!

As far as supplements are concerned i take one Xenadrine capsule in the morning and another one after lunch... You're supposed to take two but i think i'll stick with one twice a day.

In addition to this i take 1 green tea capsule 3 times a day. I always find that green tea makes me loose weight...

Apparently it is the polyphenol content in green tea that causes an increase in metabolism but interestingly enough it does not affect you the way that other metabolic stimulants do... It only stimulates your natural metabolic rate without over stimulating your adrenal gland which is what a lot of other diet pills tend to do.

Here's a good non-gimmicky article on green tea.

I thought i'd summarise the diet for anyone who is interested in it.

__________________________________________________________

THE FAT FAST

Caution: The Fat Fast is actually dangerous for anyone who is not metabolically resistant. For people who lose weight fairly easily, the rate of weight loss is too rapid to be safe. But it carries very little risk for people who can barely lose on any other regimen.

Step One: Eat Mostly Fat Begin with five 200-calorie feedings per day and follow for four or five days. Each item equals approximately 200 calories:

Step Two: Modify the Fat Fast If increasing the fat-to-carbohydrate ratio and cutting calories work, any dietary change in that direction might get the job done. Next, you can try four meals a day of roughly 300 calories for a total of 1,200 calories. That should work, too, and what it allows is definitely more appealing to the taste buds.

MEAL IDEAS FOR STEP 1.

Fat Fast Ideas And Recipes

There is one further plus to the Fast Fast which I haven't mentioned. There is very little food preparation involved. None of the ideas or recipes listed below will take you more than 5 minutes to prepare.


1. 1/4 cup heavy or whipping cream in a large mug of coffee (I use this to jump start my day and prevent abuse of those near and sometimes dear to me. In the summer I make it the night before and put it in the refrigerator, then pour it over ice. You could also pour it into popsicle molds and freeze it for Coffee Fat Fasticles. Yum!)


2. 4 strips of bacon


3. Peanut Butter Cream Cheese
1 ounce cream cheese
1 tablespoon sugar free peanut butter
1 tablespoon heavy or whipping cream
10 drops Liquid Sweet & Low (or artificial sweetener of your choice)
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Blend all ingredients in a small bowl.

Serves 1. Approximately 208 calories.

***Note: If you life this one, make up several servings at one time and stick them into the refrigerator in custard cups for individual servings. That way you only have one cleanup.


4. 2 ounces of cream cheese stuffed in one large celery stalk


5. 1/2 pork rinds with 2 ounces of sour cream


6. Pork Rinds With Sour Cream Dip (This is not my recipe - Judi (Island Girl) forwarded it to me.)
1/2 ounce plain pork rinds (1/6 of 3-ounce bag)
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
Blend parmesan into sour cream and use as dip for pork rinds

Without Parmesan: 164 calories, 8 grams fat (79%)

With Parmesan: 187 calories, 15 grams fat (77%)



7. 2 tablespoons of sugar free peanut butter on an approximately 7 1/2-inch stalk of celery.


8. 1/4 cup heavy or whipping cream, whipped, sweetened with artificial sweetener, and flavored with vanilla or some other extract.


9. 2 ounces of sour cream on approximately 1/2 cup sliced cucumber.


10. Tuna or chicken salad with triple the usually amount of mayonnaise.


11. 2 egg yolks mashed up with lots of mayonnaise, salt, and pepper (like you would for deviled eggs), but eaten plain or with a few pork rinds, cucumber slices, or a celery stick


12. Peanut Butter Pudding (This is Rani Merens' recipe.)
2 tablespoons of sour cream
1 teaspoon sugar free peanut butter
Splenda (to taste)
Combine all the ingredients. This thickens up magnificently, and can either be eaten "as is" or partially frozen, but don't let it get rock hard unless you just want to suck on it.

***Note: If you life this one, make up several servings at one time and stick them into the refrigerator in custard cups for individual servings. That way you only have one cleanup.


13. 1/4 cup heavy or whipping cream in a can of diet soda (any flavor)


14. 1/2 package sugar free Jell-O in 1/2 cup whipped heavy or whipping cream


15. 1/4 cup heavy or whipping cream, whipped, with 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder and a few drops of liquid artificial sweetener added (to taste).

***Note: If you life this one, make up several servings at one time and stick them into the refrigerator in custard cups for individual servings. That way you only have one cleanup.


16. Jell-O Whip
1 small package sugar free Jell-O (any flavor)
1/2 cup boiling water
4 ice cubes
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature and cut into cubes
4 tablespoons heavy or whipping cream
Dissolve the Jell-O completely in the boiling water, then add the ice cubes to cool it down and to thicken it.

When the ice cubes are melted, pour the gelatin mixture in the blender and add the cutup cream cheese. Whirl it around until the ingredients are completely blended. Pour the mixture into a mixing bowl.

Whip the four ounces of cream, then fold it into the cream cheese mixture.

Divide the mixture into 5 equal portions, cover each with plastic wrap, and put them in the refrigerator to chill.

This makes 5 servings, or all the you need for one day of the Fat Fast. Of course, you wouldn't have to eat all 5 servings in one day. You could alternate them with other food choices.


17. Cream Cheese Jell-O Chunks (Someone sent me this idea, too, but I've misplaced their name).

10 ounces cream cheese, cut into 20 equal squares (Not softened!) 1 small packet sugar free Jell-O, any flavor

Pour the dry gelatin powder into a small bowl or onto a salad plate. Set aside.

Roll the 20 cream cheese squares into balls. Roll each ball in the dry gelatin mixture. Place the coated balls on a plate, cover them with plastic wrap, and put them in the refrigerator until you're ready to eat them

Each Fat Fast serving is 4 balls.

18. One ounce macadamia nuts or macadamia nut butter

19. Two ounces cream cheese or Brie

20. Two ounces sour cream and 2 T black or red caviar

21. Two ounces of pate

22. low carb (5-10 grams) yogurt w/added cream to bring up fats

31. Dagwood Roll-up: 1 slice bologna, spread with half T of sf peanut butter. 1 thin slice tomato, spread with half a T mayonnaise. Put tomato on top of bologna and roll it up.

32. 0.5 oz feta cheese crumbled, 1/4 avocado diced, and 1 T olive oil, mixed as a salad 227 calories, 92% fat, 2 carbs ECC
