    Default Fat Fuel Foods for the overeating phase.

    I'm looking for some suggestions on foods to use on a low carb/high fat day as a fuel. I know adding butter to everything and leaving the fat on my meat will help. I also know hat raw almonds (or any other nut/seed) is a good choice. What other foods are good that are high in fat, and low in carbs? That is comrades

    Default Fat Fuel Foods

    Olive oil, coconut oil, coconut, avocado, tahini are some other good ones, but I think almonds, pecans, and walnuts should be staples for you.

    the avocado seems to fit the bill. And something I just bought five pounds of is the brazil nut. It has an almost obscene amount of fat. Something I rather fancy are brazil nuts and onions fried in coconut oil.

    Default Brazil nuts

    I haven't eaten a whole lot of brazil nuts other than the few odd ones in a can of mixed nuts. I tend to stick with raw almonds, pecans and walnuts. I may have to try some brazil nuts. I'm all for branching out.

    I am with you. I normally eat a mix of raw brazils, cashews, almonds, pecans, and walnuts.

    Lately I had been throwing the mix on top of beans while I was heating them up for some extra fat. I noticed the cashews got mooshy while the brazils were crispy. So I am experimenting with brazils.

    cheeses? i think good cheese is good high protein/high fat and little or not carbs. Seeds as well as nuts.

    I love the avacodo and have one every dinner.They are 75% fat. Also, I have heard, walnuts have the highest level of fat. Also, be aware that brazil nuts are 25% saturated fat. The saturated fat content of Brazil nuts is among the highest of all nuts, surpassing even macadamia nuts.

    that is why I love them. I do not eat meat and therefore I cannot get my daily quota of saturated fat without my brazil nuts (and coconut oil).

    Default Saturated Fat is way OK

    Saturated fat is NOT to be feared. It has NEVER been linked to heart disease although many tests have tried. Google 'Big Fat Lie.' The lie has killed or developed diabetes and heart disease to many people over the past 40 yrs.
    The real bad fat is trans fat made in a lab. I also avoid Canola oil because of its high Omega 6 content.

    I would say either walnuts or almonds, almonds in particular are one of the few if not only nuts that also reduce body fat when used correctly. I guess it depends on your workout but if you GTG then the following new research might be of interest; consuming healthy fats directly after learning new information aids in its retention. Haven't tested the extension of this myself as I eating nothing at all during the fasting phase, but in theory this should encompass memory of new skills, and GTG strength training could, in theory at least, be made more effective if afterwards you ate fat rather than protein as it wouldn't add muscle mass in the traditional way but may consolidate the memory of the new skill set/weight lifted more readily.
