Default Fat fast?

I've read a bunch of posts that make reference to Atkin's Fat Fast...I thought I knew everything there was to know about Atkins but I've never heard this term before. Is this just a new term for induction? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

The fat fast isn't a new term for induction. It's a for people with high metabolic resistance who could not lose wieight on induction. You have to eat a more restrictive dietary consisting of 1,000 calories daily, comprised of 75 - 90 percent fat for a week (then go back on induction).

Atkins warns:
The Fat Fast is actually dangerous for anyone who is not metabolically resistant. For people who lose weight fairly easily, the rate of weight loss is too rapid to be safe. But it carries very little risk for people who can barely lose on any other regimen.

Here's more info anout the fat fast:Fat Fast
