In my plan ahead, today was the day to fry the bacon 2 pieces at a time into small pieces. So I planned 3 strips of bacon for my lunch. As I thought about it I said, "Ah ha! I can cook the turkey patties in the bacon grease left at the end." Even with that the results were protein 64% and fat 35% with 1% carb. It is very difficult to get 80% of the calories from fat.

|My Turkey burger!|
I added another thin 2 ounce turkey burger on the top and enjoyed my delicious 340 calorie lunch. I have done some more cooking this weekend. So I will share those foods with you over the next few days. I hope that you don't drool too much. As you can see I am having a difficult time changing my paradigm from low fat to high fat. But I can tell that I am feeling better.
For those who want an update on my 5 day fat fast, I was pleased with the results. My blood sugars dropped to a boarder-line diabetic level. They are still a tad high but the books that I studied said that it is not unusual to need to be on a high fat diet for several weeks before the levels are back to normal. Over the 5 days I lost 7 pounds. (After increasing my calories from 1000 to 1500 per day, I lost another 1.5 pounds.) I am very encouraged with the results.
