My specialist told me about some books. The first one is the Carbsmart Press "Fat Fast Cookbook" with 50 easy recipes to jump start weight loss by Dana Carpender, Amy Dugan, and Rebecca Latham. The book starts out explaining the Fat Fast, why it is done, some cautions and things that people commonly do wrong with a low carb diet. It is an excellent book and I would recommend reading it if you are considering a low carb diet.
They teach that by eating processed food or whole grains and beans we have trained our body to run on glucose rather than fat. We need to change our eating habits so that our body starts creating the enzymes needed to burn fat for fuel instead of glucose. I was doing well on a low carb diet when my primary doctor insisted that I go onto metformin. That bad guidance aside, I am going to go back into a low carb diet then work into the schedule a monthly or possibly quarterly fat fast.
