What a relief! I feel great taking it and would hate to stop! And thank you for putting the dosage into perspective for me. I wouldn’t have hesitated to eat two or three bananas before my lowcarbing days and would have had a large baked potato at dinner with no qualms. But since I’m not getting any of that an obviously not enough from my diet, a little bit of LoSalt goes a long way for me.

It's an amount that might be dangerous for a small baby, but I don't hesitate to take that much myself.

Agree with this statement. I add about a quarter tsp to an electrolyte mix with water, salt and Calm magnesium powder. Works well for me.

I sometimes see Dr. Fung or Megan Ramos refer to fat fasting. I'd thought it was like Dr. Atkins' fat fast, catching up on the blog, a few blogs ago Megan posted about her version of a fat fast.

Looks more along the lines of the Modified Atkins diet, stressing the fat rather than restricting to the fat.

I wondered how effective the IDM Fat Fast would be for those us who are metabolically resistant to losing weight- the people for whom Dr. Atkins recommended the Atkins Fat Fast. The IDM version does limit the allowed foods, interestingly not allowing dairy or nuts. When I would do the AFF to break a looooong stall, the simplest version for me to do was 1 oz of macadamia nuts & 8 oz of cream cheese. After 3 days on the AFF, the scale would go down, and my regular WOE seemed quite indulgent. After 3 days on the IDM protocol, I rather doubt I would be inspired to do an extended fast. Intermittent fasting seems to be the best I can do at this point. Everyone's mileage may vary!

Totally feel for her patient. Wonderful that she was able to pull together a personalized program in short order. The power of fat!

I thought more of Induction just minus the all the vegies. well sort of-- the avocado and olives are vegies. lol HIs fat fasts where limited in calories too. Never been able to do a DANDR fat fast.

HIgh fat content--This is how I work into a 23/1 OMAD-- increase the fats!! ANd drop the veges to nearly nil. And keep the meat to 8 oz in a meal--

Today I almost forgot to eat.
