Using the Fat Fasting Technique [What It Is and When to Do]

The fat fast is a technique used by people who are metabolically resistant and have trouble with their induction into ketosis. Let me first say that fat fasting should be used in 2 situations only:

1. Breaking through a 2 week or longer plateau.
2. Inducing yourself into ketosis quicker, whether you are just starting keto or you had a cheat day.

It is important to stress that a fat fast should only be followed for a few days maximum as it does not provide sufficient protein and other nutrients. It is also not recommended when you are very slim and don’t have significant fat stores.

  1. this is not a fat fast. coffee with coc oil..some butter….mct oil thats it…Ive been practicing TRUE FAT FASTING FOR YEARS
    but nice video:)

  2. The meals you show are a lot more that Dr Atkins recommends in his book for fat fast. I suggest everyone read the book. What you showed looked more like Induction.

  3. Best fat fasting video around,informative,down to the point and easy to understand..Thank you

  4. I like to eat fat only (morning and mid-day) and then do OMAD. Very easy for me and keeps slow but stable weight loss/maintenance.

  5. Sorry but this is not pure fat only fast, if you look to avocado, nuts, meat nutrition facts they all have protein….

  6. I fat fast only with fluids and fat. I do it for inflammation decreasing NOT weight loss. I fell into not bc I was advised to but just noticing I get the same results as with just water. I hardly weigh just once each month but I do FF once ever week for Autophagy 72 hrs. I actually feel better Fasting then eating explain that one?

  7. This was incredibly informative. Each time I wondered something, it was the next thing you addressed. Really well done. Thank you!

  8. I typically eat one meal a day and will like to know if I can stick to the protocol (90% cal from fat and under 1200) but only eat that single meal.

  9. I have a question, can you omad all your calories or do you NEED to split it up into tiny meals?
