Fat Fast Day 1: I am stuffed

I am not going to lie, my week of intermittent fasting was a bust.  I lost my focus after completing the first half of it. Oops. Oh well, gotta move on!

Earlier this morning, I prepared lamb ribs marinated in garlic, fresh rosemary, salt, and pepper for dinner.  Once I got home from work, they went into 400F/204C oven for about 40 minutes.  Here’s a photo of the ribs before they went into the oven.  I don’t have an after photo today, but I’m sure you get the picture.

To add, the fat on the lamb really filled me up. I had to cut most of it out because the rib had such a thick layer of fat on it.  It was heavenly, though.

I will say that my first day of the fat fast did include some salad greens and peanut butter.  So quite honestly, it is not a fat fast in its purest form. I did manage to clock in at well under 20 net carbs today (I added fiber to the below chart), so it wasn’t all that bad. I’ll try better tomorrow.
