I have done a couple 36 hour fasts since my last post. Today I completed my third 48 hour fast and I am much better adapted. I could just eat normal food, although not much, about 1/2 cup of food to start. Not the usual re-feeding issues with electrolytes though.
I did supplement with EZ Melts Multivitamin, B1, P5P (B6), B12. I also took Natural Calm Magnesium and a Jigsaw electrolyte both days. And one watered down black coffee. And water…….
Earlier this week I tried a dose of exogenous ketones again and didn’t get sick at all so I think my body is finally fat adapting. Only down 7 lbs but my biceps are getting harder even though I’m not working out. So hopefully rebuilding a little muscle.
I found a new food delivery company Model Meals – they are Whole 30- compliant Paleo. Making my life so much easier!!
I’m now doing 19/5 intermittent fasting daily as of this past week – when not doing a water fast. So only eating dinner, in a 4-5 hour window. That and cleaner eating has really helped me with the water fasting. Every time I do a water fast my feet get noticeably better! Much more sensation and less inflammation.
I was reading online that coffee on a fast can stress your heart so I cut from two to one and added water but I feel nauseous if I cut it out completely. Baby steps!
