Anyone used this and what were the results?

1000 Calories a day of coconut oil in coffee for 30 days. 100% fat zero sugar and maybe BCAA before and after fasted cardio and evening workout.

True. At least this proves we're not *all* a bunch of extremist nutrition psychos.

That is some extreme weightlifting macho bullshit. Nothing wrong with starting with light weights and doing so in proper form. I do planks and it hurts my damn neck because I'm not doing them correctly - I know this but can't seem to correct the problem. However I can do my WL on a machine and not kill myself. I've been at it for 1.5 years, when in the past I couldn't stick with it for more than a week, probably because I finally overcame the bs that I had to be ripped from the get go.

@ Trey 3 Well yes you have to be extreme if you want to install discipline and focus on someone who is raping, shooting and gang banging his way in YA and the the big house.

Even though coconut oil is wonderful, it's not going to make you meet all your nutritional needs

small, modest steps toward good and sustainable health and fitness practices is the precursor to any sort of <insert type of diet that works for the individual> and <insert type of fitness regimen that works for the individual>, and must be sussed out over time by the individual based on the results of self-experimentation, motivation, and that person's own biology.

based on your recent activity on this board regarding this kid, you seem like a stubborn and insufferable person, i don't think you should be spearheading this kid's diet and fitness goals, and you are probably doing more harm than good. all these questions you've been asking about crash diets and crash workout regimens for another person is a little alarming.

It's called the Kekwick Diet; you can look it up.

I would recomm, if you really wanna use it, do it for a lot less than 30 days. Lose some weight on it, then go back to more sustainable, healthy eating for a good long while before you do it again. Your doc can advise.

1000 Cals is pretty low on a steady basis, plus you still need lots of other nutrients such as B vitamins, minerals, yada yada.

I don't think your friend will be doing more than 12 press ups without stopping any time soon but this is just because of the impression you've given us of him in several of your post.

What's his weight and height?

Like most others, I strongly advise against the oil fast. He'll probably lose more muscle than fat in the process. It might make sense to do a 30 day modified oil fast which includes eggs, liver, and a bit of greens or something of that nature.

Either way, it'd help him kick the pancake habit. But then when will you hit on his mom?

@samc

It is not macho at all. It is common sense, why do you think gymnasts have the biggest crossover skill set to other activities? It isn't coincidence, it is because mobility and core strength are the foundations for strength.And you seemed to of missed my point.

I am not saying starting light is bad because lightweight is for pussies. My point is that even light weight is still too much weight until you have mastered your own bodyweight.

If a man is 200lbs, why start bench pressing 165lbs and building up, rather than knocking out pushups everyday until they can do 100 press ups without stopping?

Sounds like a good way to have the runs and get a bunch of deficiencies to me, honestly. Plus, he'd go through a butt-load of coconut oil. Literally, maybe.

This is for my homie, he wants to join the marines but is a fat motherfucker and he needs help. I want to strip him of some body fat before I start him resistance training, I believe no one has any business lifting weights before they can do 150 press ups 25 dead hang pull-ups and 200 or so sit-ups.

I think the number one reason people never progress with weights is because they have severe immobility, terrible imbalances and have no core strength or balance and they just start with bar and a little disc on each side, but they haven't addressed their basic imbalances from sitting and not exercising and this means their bodies can not get strong properly because they have reinforced structural problems by loading their bodies with weight and thus conditioning their bodies to follow the wrong mechanisms that limit potential growth and strength gains.

When I was a kid I could do planks for 15 minutes and did hundreds sometimes a thousands press ups a day, I would do sets of 20 pull-ups every hour and I would do hundreds and hundreds of body squats upon waking.

First time I walked into a gym I benched 225lbs about 8 times first time I squatted I worked on my form and then added weights every set and worked up to 300lbs.

So my main belief is that you have to start with stretching, mobility work, press ups and chins. Once you can do 200 press ups in a row, maybe then I will allow him to watch me lift a barbell.

Seems too extreme. You will lose muscle if you don't eat any protein.

Here's a thread from a year ago but it appears to have no posted results. :(

Just pot shots & nit pics....

http://paleohacks.com/questions/142365/starting-coconut-oil-fast-tomorrow-who-wants-to-jo.html#axzz2lOfETYs2

In Ferriss' book 4 Hour Body he talks about the comparison of three diets of 1000 calories

90% fat, 90% carb, 90% protein... in each case (I think a bit of other macros were included)

I loaned my copy so I cannot reference it... but IIRC, the fat diet eaters lost the most, carb eaters the least.

Check out Atttia's blog he did 4000 cal per day ( 2 to 3 hours of exercise), 88% fat, 3 % carbs, 9% protein (~100g).

I have no experience with BCAA ... can sufficient use prevent muscle catabolism? Which would be my concern on a major calorie restricted diet. You're a big guy, I'm guessing you'd need at least 100g+ protein to keep from losing muscle. But OTOH, whatever muscle you do lose...you can replace quickly after the 30 days.

Have you read any of Martin's work over at LeanGains?... yeah, he's a bit much to take, at times, but his techniques seem to make sense & work.

Sounds extreme and unnecessary to me personally.
