Fat burns Fat

Feels so refreshing to sit down in peace and write. emoticon

Thoughts are always going through my head, and I always "mean" to come here and get them down, but something always gets in the way. emoticon

It has been a crazy time. I feel like I am marking my time in the world by my weight and the diet I am on. Well a bit anyways these past 2-3 months.

In the past two months I have obsessed over juicing. That was fun! I really did enjoy it, in fact lost 5 pounds in my 10 Day Juice fat, but yes it came back, and quickly. I loved the juicing journey though. Went to see my BFF in California and she introduced me to it. I have however put the Juicer away, although I would love to use it more regularly.

Now I am on a low carb journey, this after a very hungry (but informative) 21 day journey with Homeopathic HCG drops. I learned about Fat Fasting during my HCG journey. Although this was not part of the VLCD, 500 calories and NO FAT was the protocol. I learned that some people would eat fat only to break a plateau. Well I was not losing. In 2 weeks I had lost 5 pounds, a far cry from the 1/2 to a pound a day others were losing, not to mention I was miserable and starving and just an emotional mess. I tried the fat fasting and I felt so much better, and it turned out it was exactly what my body needed. During a 3 day fat binge, and yes that was not the plan, my body released 2.8 pounds...WOW! I then started learning more about fat and an interesting WOE, called EAT FAT GET THIN. 65% of your calories should come from fat, about 25% from protein and the rest from carbs. WOW - I thought I can do that. I was learning about JUDDD, Atkins etc and I have come to the conclusion that for me, I need fat, carbs are what has to go!

This has certainly been a mind shift for me, yesterday I ate over 100 grams of fat, today looks like it will be around the same. I have not stepped on the scale since I stopped the HCG and that was 149. A few days before that I was 147.2 I am not ready to tackle the scale yet, maybe tomorrow. I guess you could say I am on the induction phase of Atkins at the moment, with the goal of net carbs 20.

I will see how this works over the next couple of weeks. I think this will help with my binge eating as well as my overall mental health. Can FAT really burn FAT?

    My hubby did Atkins and so we all started to eat low(er) carbs since he was the chef in the family. Well, I had been plateaued at 133 at the time, but dropped to 125 in only a couple of months. That's always been my OMG goal weight!

    We moved and thus began our re-introduction to bad food (including pizza, chips, and all that other horrible stuff you just grab when you're packing boxes) and so the weight is back. But I am trying to curb my carbs quite a bit. I eat more fat than the average person because it is definitely more filling.

    Good luck with Atkins! I hope it gives you the results you are looking for.
