Can someone tell me a little more about the fat fast? What was your experience with it? Maybe even what a typical menu is like?

Sounds to me like something Atkins people might know about, atkins only worked a little bit for me and it didnt stay off once I went back to how I normally ate. I needed a plan I could live with. South Beach fits in with my life. Good luck in finding one that works for you.
I Found this for you:
"The Fat Fast is one controlled carb program where you do have to count calories. You'll eat 1,000 calories a day, with 75 percent to 90 percent comprised of fat. Frequent feedings prevent hunger better than three meals a day, so you consume five feedings, perhaps one every four hours, comprising 200 calories each. Because of the high fat content and frequent feedings, very few people experience much hunger. The stumbling block for some people is the absence of conventional meals. But most are willing to stick with it for a few days, even if the food selections are unfulfilling.

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."

The Fat Fast is only for people who do not lose ANY weight while doing Atkins Induction Phase and who do not test positive for any hormonal or thyroid problems. It is dangerous for people to do it if they are not metabolically resistant and not followed by their doctor because it is less than 15 grams of carbohydrates a day and limited calories as well. It can stress out the liver and adrenal glands, so it should be done with caution.

There is a whole chapter devoted to metabolic resistance in the Atkins book. Please read it before starting anything like that.

I know I am restating what ImLuvd said, but I have to emphasise the importance of the information.

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!
