I’m Eating Fat To Lose Weight

I’m Eating Fat to lose weight! Really, I am. It took me over 50 years to realize I was doing it all wrong. Weight loss can be easy and it can come off quickly if you eat more fat.

Over the years I have tried many different ways to lose weight. I tried liquid diets, calorie counting, and cutting fat out of my diet. And I worked out every day. But nothing ever really seemed to work for any amount of time.

Then one day I was talking to my boyfriend, Brian and he said he was very concerned about his blood sugar (he was borderline diabetes) and was thinking about going on a low carbohydrate diet.

I want him to be healthy and live for many years, so I decided to go online and get as much information as I could on the subject. And I realized that fat doesn’t make you fat! Actually, it is sugar and carbs that make you fat.

So I decided to go on a low carbohydrate diet with him and to my surprise, I love it! I’ve been doing it for 3 weeks now and have lost 9 pounds so far. But the best thing of all is that I am not hungry.

Together we are dropping weight and feeling great! I am really excited to see where we will be in just a few short months.


I love to write and find that I always do better with projects if I keep a journal. So I decided to create this blog as a way of holding myself accountable but also hopefully to inspire people to do the same.

Feel free to comment below. I would love any support I can get.

  1. I agree. You’ve got to keep fat coming in to keep the fat coming off.

    On the other hand, don’t over do I because you’ve cut carbs all of the sudden. A burger is still a burger, even if you take out the bun. That may not cause diabetes or cause one to gain as much fat, but it will definitely clog your arteries.

    1. Yep, Fat makes you thin NOT Fat. 🙂 And I agree that we can overdo on anything. That is why it is important to only eat when your body tells you too. But what most of us have been taught is wrong. Fat doesn’t clog your arteries. In fact most people find that their bad cholesterol will drop dramatically while on a high fat diet. I have read many testimonials where people who lost a significant amount of weight do to eating a high fat diet also saw their numbers dropped. And many have reversed type 2 diabetes. I think the most important thing is for a person to be proactive and have their doctor check their numbers.

  2. That is really interesting that after trying so many ways to to lose weight, low carbs is what finally helped you lose weight! It’s becoming more evident every year that it really isn’t the quantity of what we eat that affects our weight it’s the quality. Unlike some claims, calories are not created equally! Low carbs is definitely a great way to go for your health and losing weight! How long would you recommend sticking to a low carb diet though? You can’t eat this way perpetually.

    1. I will probably be eating this way for the rest of my life. I will just increase my carbs by adding more veggies and I will allow myself fruit and maybe an occasional beer and once in a while perhaps some starches. But they will be rare. I just feel so good and I want to be around to see my grand kids.

  3. I was amazed when the DR. told me I was obese! Seriously I know I had put weight on but to be clinically obese was worrying.

    I lost 12 kg in 3 months through eating a low carb-high protein diet as described here. It actually made a nice change from pizza & soda.

    Lots of great info here, I’ll be back to continue reading.
