Is anyone struggling to keep up to their target weight?
I usually break my monthly 72-hour fasts with 500ml of full-fat yoghurt, followed by a cooked brunch. I normally fast 20 hours a day, eating only two meals... but, after lunch, I had my breakfast cereal-free muesli - in a bowl full of double cream... and I finished up the rest of the 600ml over a few days.
This seemed to work well - fat satiates, and I did not feel hungry or resort to having fish and a spring roll in the afternoon... so, the next week, I had another 600ml of cream.
Edited: 600ml of double cream is 2,790kcal or about 400 kcal per day, which would tend to cause almost a pound a week weight gain. This week I only bought 300ml of double cream, and I have been eating more cashew butter!
I am now at my ideal weight: I have lost 35kg, and I am now less than 90Kg, 17% body-fat - and my waist measurement is an inch or so less than half my height. I walk 35 to 50km per week, and, according to my Apple Watch, I burn 2,000 to 3,000 kcal per day, and I continue to lose a kilo a month.
I have no gall bladder, so it is, perhaps, surprising that I have no problem eating so much fat?
I have got into the habit of not eating after 14:00 - and it suits me.
Um, your calories are out by a factor of 2. Even 600ml of butter is less calories than that. Double cream is around 2800 for 600ml.
That said, it's a good element of a LCHF diet. Hidden can eat any amount without gaining weight, while the actual diet doctor says he lost weight when he gave it up. Your body will respond as it will.
You need to watch the video
Well, you don't need to, only watch it if you want to see what he says about cream.
You are right Subtle_badger . Double cream available in the UK has 50% fat which means 2700 kcal for 600ml. Butter has 80% fat - 4320 kcal for 600ml.
Thanks - I cannot do simple arithmetic, even when I have the container in my hand!
Otherwise, cream is very good. I use it liberally! It makes my food taste yummy.
I gave it up for a few weeks and did not lose weight either. I think I’ve got to the point where my appetite is bang on for my needs. I ate no cream, so I must have eaten something else to compensate.
