Indeed! I do it once in a while, well, sort of…
Sometimes I run out of chicken thighs when I make my meal. I usually eat three of them to reach satiety. Sometimes my pack of thighs only has 10 in it, leaving me an odd two left (thats right an even number thats odd ).
I bake them in a dish that they just barely fit in, so when there is juice, the bottom of of them is cooking in it, keeping them from drying out. I’ll often recover that juice, about 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup, into a mug, and drink that like a cup of broth. Its mostly just fat from the chicken and whatever cheese I cooked it with, not to mention a slew of spices. Its darn good too!
The reason I do it is to be sure I get enough calories in on my non fasting days to maintain weight loss. If I dont keep my calories up, my BMR drops dramatically and Im just not burning much fat. I surmise this because it will be 80 degrees Fahrenheit in the house and I feel cold. When I get enough to eat it can be 70 degrees in the house and I’ll still be walking around in my skivvies.
So I can see need for taking a swig of olive oil or a tblsp of coconut oil. Sometimes that little bit is all I need to keep the metabolism running hot, and not trying to hibernate.
