i did a fat fast when the victoza stopped working - however i was still injecting the victoza but was unaware it wasn't working. the fat fast was not successful. it was the last straw before i went on the meds roller coaster for a long long time trying to figure it out.

however - i have wanted to try it again. strictly for vanity's sake lol sorry its going to be swimsuit season soon

Wow MCS, nice to lose so easily unintentionally!

As for me, down another 1/2 lb today, for 6.5 lost in three days. I did add maybe 250 extra calories yesterday, an egg and additional macadamias, since I was very hungry. My BG has been rock solid between 86 and 92 for the past two days, with no exercise, something I've never seen since Dx.

I'm continuing today, since I seem to be doing so well. I might add a little exercise to see what that does.

Just a thought, maybe you have trouble losing more weight when your body has reached a point where it's happy where it is? Sometimes our "goal weight" and what our body wants can be different.

Nah, in my case that would be about 80 pounds less than I weigh now, and would still be considerably above what the charts suggest.

I'm following your success very closely Abra! I'm happy for you and you are giving me hope that if I try this fat fast, maybe I can get over my 9 month stall too!

Oh OK, sorry Abra, sometimes I see people trying to chase off that last five pounds and I want to just hug them! Good luck!

Today my weight was the same, my signal to add more calories since obviously my body is starting to conserve fat. So overall, I lost 6.5 pounds in 4 days of fat fasting, and my BG stayed under 100 the whole time. I'm planning to add calories and protein back in very slowly and see what I need to do to keep it there, since obviously it's technically possible for me to have normal BG 100% of the time. Carbs, I don't know. I love vegetables, but obviously I can live without them. I'll have to see.

It was a very interesting exercise, and I won't hesitate to do it again in the future as needed. Give it a try if you're stuck, but be sure that you have a good supply of macadamia nuts on hand!

I just want to add one more footnote to this story. Yesterday I took the calories up to 1500, keeping the % of fat at 80. That turned out to be the right thing to do at the moment, since today my weight was down 2 additional pounds plus my fasting BG was the lowest I've ever seen, 83. I'm going to keep doing this for a few more days and see how it goes. I've never tried restricting calories in addition to doing HFLC, and even though it's a bit of a PITA, I definitely can't argue with the results!

Default Taking the plunge!

I have been struggling a lot lately with the "munchies" - wanting to eat, even when not hungery, and worse yet, even when full from a meal.

So I decided to do a fat fast for a couple days in an attempt to break that cycle and get me back on the straight and narrow. I started yesterday (Sunday). Today is day 2.

Yesterday went well but by mid-afternoon I was really hungry - feeling shaky and dropping things (BG was not low). So I had an extra 200-calorie meal. I also added a half a slice of bacon (which increased the protein a bit). That seemed to help and I was able to stay on it the rest of the evening.

This morning I added the half-slice bacon to my 1st "meal" of the day. I haven't craved food this morning yet. So, that's good.

My BGs aren't as low as I expected. 97 pp yesterday, 107 at bedtime, 94 this morning. I know, these are good numbers, but I was hoping to be in the 80s. Maybe today/tomorrow?

I think I'll quit the fast after today unless I feel a lot better by end of day today. Then I'll go back to carb counting but ease up to <10g/day for as many days as I can - and NOT go back to the nut muffins and other LC goodies. If I can remain "munchies"-free, and my weight begins to come down, then I'll slowly returnn to <20g/day.

That's the plan, anyway.
