My mood the other days was still somewhat cranky - I think it would be hard on my marriage to try to do 5 days of this with my husband home (plus I think it would be hard on me to have to sit with others eating real food while I had my fatty mini-meals). No hormone feelings, or muscle pain. I wouldn't say I felt great, although I think I did have a lot of ketosis energy and maybe some difficulty sleeping (hard to tell about that as I have a 7 month old baby daughter who is not a good sleeper, so I'm not sure I can blame the diet on sleep problems!)

Shrinkingme : This time on low carb that's what I'm doing too - protein in check and capped at around 65-70g per day, and calories limited to around 1500. Carbs under 30 total (not net). When I do all that I've been losing at a pretty consistent rate overall during the 4 1/2 months. But the fat fast knocked off 5 pounds very quickly...

Basically it worked to knock off several pounds, followed by a small bounce up and stable period before moving slightly downward again. These stay-stay-stay-drop patterns are typical for me though.

I'm just updating this thread with my current thoughts on Fat Fasts.

Which is : shirt term benefit, long term HARM

I believe the months I spent eating high fat, low protein low carb forced my body to use skeletal muscle for its protein needs, eroding my already meager muscles. The Fat Fasts did this to an even greater extent. So while each time I'd lose a couple of pounds, I think at least as much of that loss was lean body mass (the stuff that powers your metabolism & that we want more of!) as was actual fat loss.

I've been back on low carb for about 2 months now, carbs around 20-25g, but protein much much higher than in the past, and I think it's really helping. My body is tighter and smaller, I can do a lot of daily living activities more easily, and energy is great. I'm basically eating a "normal" serving of protein 3 meals a day, nothing insane, but since I now think lower protein harmed me (and it's quite trendy with the "keto" movement) I wanted to update.
