After doing IF for over a year and extended fasts of up to 15 days, it’s time to do one more long fast, this will be my longest and I don’t plan to do it again to be honest (anything this long…). We’ve been eating keto all year and will continue to the WOE, most likely forever.
I’m fasting for 20 days, first 5 will be black coffee, water, keto aid only. After that I’ll add bone broth, coconut oil, and/or HWC. I might not add those the fats in, it’s dependent on how I’m feeling and proceeding.
My wife is joining me, she’ll shoot for 30 days (she has more stores to draw from).
My purpose is:
- Prove I can do this, pushing the boundaries to what will probably be my limit, coming from a Stoic point of view I’m just reminding myself that I can survive on very little subsistence
- Autophagy- continue to reduce size of lipomas and other unseen internal benefits
Luckily for me, work stress is low now, the temps are just right (not cold outside…) and there is a lull in what’s going on in general, makes it a great time.
