I've only had a couple of people who have said they are going to try it. I haven't heard from Barbara yet and MaryL is working her way there. There is solid science behind this idea so I am confident if done correctly it will work. The meal has to be predominantly good healthy fats. I'm suggesting cold pressed coconut, olive, and avocado oils. Butter is fine, grass fed Kerrygold butter is best. No seed or vegetable oils. For the protein options, grass fed beef, pastured eggs and chickens if you can get them, fatty fish like salmon or sardines, dark meat chicken is better then breast. Eggs are a perfect balance of protein and fat and other beneficial nutrients. If you use bacon find one with no added sugar. I have yet to find any sausage that does not have one or more forms of sugar!
A perfect meal would be 2 eggs cooked in butter with 2 or 3 strips of bacon and some leafy greens like spinach or Kale. You can cook the greens with some of the rendered bacon fat. Don't rely on cheese too much or nuts. Try to keep as close to zero carbs as possibly. You're already getting the proper amount in your Cambridge.
I know this sounds like a crazy thing for the Cambridge lady to suggest, but everything I've been studying about modified fasting and ketogenic diets supports this idea. Most people do not succeed on just a keto diet, especially women. They lose initially and then get stuck. That was my experience when I tried it with my daughter several years ago. Combining it with a modified fast like Cambridge may be the perfect combo. Plus 3 meals a week to look forward to may be just enough to keep people from feeling sad or stressed about not eating their regular food.
I'm glad you are joining in Nonie!
