Good Fat – The Macadamia Nut Fat Fast

I have done a couple of you tube vlogs when I have done  what I call the “mac nut fast.”

I can always tell when someone else must have mentioned my vlog on maybe their own vlog because I get a flux of questions.

I decided to do this post to help clarify and answer the most frequently asked questions.



I just came across your video on YouTube. I am a vegetarian. I would like to know more about your Mac nut fat fast day.

From the video what i understood was;-
1. Eating 5 ounces of macadamia nuts(throughout the day) only. and water.. nothing else?
2. Do this for 3 days…and continue with regular vlcd?
3. Continue taking hcg drops?

I don’t have a gall bladder.

I’m a little scared about how this works? Won’t it increase fat percentage?



The theory is that since you are taking in fat your body isn’t afraid to release fat that is the easiest way to explain it all.
You can have water, tea, coffee if you would like, I even drink the “cali-kickers” I like too (more about that when I do my post about lemon benefits).

I think lots of water is important to help flush out everything from the fat to the salt on the nuts. I do only mac nut because of the MCT benefits (see details below) and I don’t have to take time figuring out other foods and weighing them. Even though it doesn’t make any sense, this works whether you are on HCG or not. I didn’t believe it would work till I tried it myself.

So Simply –

I weigh 5 – one ounce servings and put each ounce serving in an individual snack sized Ziplock bag. – Equals 5 small bags. I added a picture to show what the nuts look on the scale. Many people ask how many nuts is one ounce. Since the nuts vary in size that is hard to use as a barometer. Even weighing exactly one ounce is tricky so many times as long as one bag is 98.5 and the next one is a little over 100 I’m not going to sweat it.

Personally I try to don’t dive into the first serving until the afternoon. Of course the better will power you have it would be better to “graze” on the nuts ever so slowly through out the day to keep your body’s “furnace” burning.



The Fat Fast is one controlled carb program where you do have to count calories. You’ll eat 1,000 calories a day, with 75 percent to 90 percent comprised of fat. Frequent feedings prevent hunger better than three meals a day, so you consume five feedings, perhaps one every four hours, comprising 200 calories each. Because of the high fat content and frequent feedings, very few people experience much hunger. The stumbling block for some people is the absence of conventional meals. But most are willing to stick with it for a few days, even if the food selections are unfulfilling.

Why I choose the Macadamia Nut for my FAT FAST food of choice:

Benefits of MCT Oil

Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT) oils are a special class of fats that are digested and handled by the body in a different way than most fats. Most fats are long-chain triglycerides which are difficult to process, so the body prefers to store them in fat cells.

MCT oils are absorbed in the bloodstream, passing the digestion process that longer chain fats go through. MCT oil provides quick energy for the body and therefore is less likely to be stored as body fat. MCTs are such an easy source of fuel, they are even more likely to be burned off than low-fat fare. When MCT is metabolized in the body, it behaves like a carbohydrate not a fat.

Unlike other fats, it does not go through the lymphatic system. Instead, it is transported directly to the liver where it is metabolized and released like a carbohydrate and then is used for fuel. MCT has a thermogenic effect in the body, helping you to stay slim by keeping your body fat levels down while keeping energy levels up. MCT oil is easily absorbed by the body and is therefore ideal for individuals with digestive problems. For those with Crohn’s and irritable bowel syndrome, the healing effects of MCT oil could be beneficial. MCT promotes intestinal health by killing troublesome microorganisms that may cause chronic inflammation.

Diabetics could benefit from using MCT oil as it helps to regulate blood sugar levels. Supplementation of MCT oil began as a fat source to help treat diseases such as cystic fibrosis, obesity and fat malabsorption. Bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts have used MCT for its fat burning and energy-sustaining powers. It has been found that MCTs burn three times more calories for six hours after a meal than other fats. It is thought that MCTs stimulate production of thyroid hormone, improving thyroid function boosting metabolism.

Athletes benefit from the use of MCT oil for both weight gain and weight loss. Bodybuilders must consume incredible volumes of food to put on size. We have found that adding MCT oil to their diets is an easy way to increase the caloric intake of their food without increasing the volume that they must eat. Since MCT acts like a carbohydrate and not a fat, athletes do not increase their body fat percentages while increasing their calories with this product. Since MCTs are thermogenic, not only are athletes increasing their muscle mass, but they are decreasing their fat percentages at the same time. We have put champion bodybuilders on stage consuming as much as 2000 calories from MCT oil starting 16 weeks from show day and continuing right up to contest day. These athletes have competed at body fat percentages of less than 2% and still maintained a healthy appearance. MCTs help to add flavor to the food that bodybuilders consume. The bodybuilding diet is know to be quite bland, adding MCT to rice and tuna helps to make it quite palatable.

MCT oil is beneficial for any individual who wishes to gain or lose weight, maintain a healthy immune system or maintain constant blood sugar levels. We have used MCTs since the late 1980’s with our high performance athletes. We feel this product has given our athletes an advantage in weight loss over other competitors. It is just now becoming more popular with the general public as a very valuable product for health and weight loss. The athlete’s secret has now become public knowledge. We highly recommend the use of this product for continued good health.

**A warning about the fat fast **
I want to point out two things about this “trick”.
You must go back to strict protocol after doing this (if on P2) or eat super clean afterward (P3&4) to give your body the time to adjust to the flux that just happened to  it.

Basically giving you body a chance to be o.k. with the sudden release and not try to go back to the weight it was before.

The other warning is  – Don’t do this for long, I would say 3 days MAX. I no longer have a gallbladder but those of you that do, the increase of fats in your system could aggravate the gallbladder and cause problems. Quite simply, you certainly don’t want that.

Caution: 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.

      Water is great for so many health benefits!
      And high intensity interval training (HIIT) it great too. Of course the intensity level will depend on the persons fitness level when starting out.
      Along with the water lemon juice with a dash of cayenne pepper is awesome. On cold days sometimes drinking that much water can get quite “chilly” the lemon drink can be drank like a hot tea. You can even add stevia. Great for appetite, digestion, just tons of benefits and yes don’t forget the water.
