Modified Fat Fast - 1000 cal/day of guacamole, bacon, macadamia nuts

Today, I have started a Modified Fat Fast, to kickstart my metabolism, and get me back into ketosis.  I have read Atkin's New Diet Revolution, and he prescribes a fat fast for the metabolically resisistant, of 5 x 200 calorie servings of macadamia nuts per day (1 ounce, or about 1/4 cup).  There are other fat fasts which are similar.  Although they very slightly, essentially, you are eating about 1000-1200 calories per day, of which 75-90% of the calories come from fat.  Fasts can last between 3-5 days. 
 
So, I decided that I would make up my own fat fast, with foods I like and can eat for 3 days straight, and see how it works.  I picked three foods: bacon, guacamole and macadamia nuts.  I am also allowing myself 3 mini peppers per day.  (Click the links for specific brand information).  No restriction on noncaloric drinks, and I'm still taking my vitamins.
 
Here is my daily plan with nutritional breakdown:
 
  • Meal 1:  3 slices bacon  (70 cal/5g fat/0g carb/5g protein) + 4 tbsp guacamole (120cal/10g fat/2g carb/2g protein) + 1 pepper (8 cal/0g fat/1g carb/0g protein)
  • Meal 2:  1 ounce macadamia nuts (200 cal/21 g fat/2g carb/2g protein)
  • Meal 3:  3 slices bacon  (70 cal/5g fat/0g carb/5g protein) + 4 tbsp guacamole (120cal/10g fat/2g carb/2g protein) + 1 pepper (8 cal/0g fat/1g carb/0g protein)
  • Meal 4:  1 ounce macadamia nuts (200 cal/21 g fat/2g carb/2g protein)
  • Meal 5:  3 slices bacon  (70 cal/5g fat/0g carb/5g protein) + 4 tbsp guacamole (120cal/10g fat/2g carb/2g protein) + 1 pepper (8 cal/0g fat/1g carb/0g protein)
So, that works out to a daily total of 994 calories/ 87 grams of fat / 13 grams of carbohydrate / 25 grams of protein. 
About 78% of calories come from fat, figuring 9 calories in 1 gram of fat.
 
Let's see what happens.  I weighed myself this morning, and was 210.5.  I am going to do this fast all day Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  Wish me luck :)
 
Incidentally, a guacamole covered piece of bacon, with diced peppers on top is very delicious!!

  7. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
    topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am
    looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

  8. During my college days I have seen black girls and men kicked it and
    much of the time the girls finish up to love
    the bloke and all of a sudden he'll just call time. Usually do not imagine that she voted regarding and even prefers President Obama. When we are hurt or pained, the objective should be to never shut the heart down in response to being hurt, shutting the heart down to protect self.

  9. A lot of loan applications by people with bad credit are rejected by lending institutions.
    With a bad credit payday loan it is designed for individuals with bad credit and practically everybody is approved.

  10. A lot of loan applications by individuals with bad credit are declined by lenders.
    With a bad credit payday loan it is made for
    people with bad credit and almost everybody is accepted.

    Lenders have the ability to do this since your payment is automatically
    deducted from your account on payday. This implies that the lender is sure
    you are going to be able to pay back the cash you have actually
    gotten a loan from them.

  11. Getting an Edu backlink is vital for the excellence of a website.

    Some people wonder why this kind of backlink is necessary.
    Sites that give hyperlinks to others websites boost the ranking and track
    record of those websites.
