I've done the fat fast and what I found really helped was to have each of the fat fast feedings planned out in advance. But you're quite brave trying that before going through induction, I think the first couple of days on low carb are challenging, and the fat fast is so little food that EVEN if you're fat-adapted you're pretty hungry the whole time...

Maybe try 'regular' induction for a week or two first?

And I can't help myself, I'll offer some unsolicited advice to relax and let this weight loss phase take as long as it will take. There is no race. Everyone loses at a different pace, even the same person will often lose at different paces at various points. I think the most important factor is having a long-term view, that you need to be actively managing your weight for a VERY (very very very) long time. During some of that period you'll be losing, during some of it you'll be maintaining. But to maintain you'll need to keep your head in the game to some extent still... I'm sure I'm not the only one here who is doing this weight loss thing Again.... But I'm really trying to make sure that what's lost stays lost...

When you can get yourself to that kind of mindset, the speed of loss is less important. Not that you become complacent, mind you (I'm on day 22 of a stall right now, and I'm hardly happy about it) but there is very little risk I'll "blow it" because of the scale's refusal to budge.
