Atkins Fat Fast: Round 2

Lindsey Pennington - Wednesday, July 28, 2010

This past January I hit a stall and decided to try to Atkins Fat Fast to lose weight. I successfully lost 7lbs in 4 days and was thrilled! I'm not going to lie and say the fat fast was easy because it's not, but I've hit a weight point that I can't seem to break no matter what I do. I've kept my carb intake between 20-30 grams per day and I've even been trying to workout consistently. I'm working out 3-5 days a week. I typically workout for 1 hour-1 1/2 hours total. In that time frame, I do 30 mins-1 hour of cardio and 30 minutes of weight training every day that I work out. It's very frustrating!


I've noticed my body is very comfortable weighing anywhere in the 140s. It seems as if I've hit a weight set point that I can't seem to break. My goal weight is 115-120lbs which is what I weighed most of my life until I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in 2006. I'm determined to break this stall and even seeking medical treatment for additional help.


I'm not sure how long I'm going to do the Fat Fast, but I'm going to try to do it for it least 4 days, maybe 5 days. I'm excited to see what kind of weight loss results I can achieve this time around. I'm hoping to come out of this fast eating high fat, unprocessed, natural low carb food. I think my worst enemy has been dairy, cheese, and processed low carb food. I can't wait to tell you how it goes! Wish me luck!
