Broke a 48 hour fast last night. I had no idea what I was doing on day one. This is because I had IF fasted before, but never did a prolonged fast.
It was more of an intuitive eating thing – after 7 weeks of eating keto, I just don’t feel as hungry anymore and I wanted to really kickstart my health in general and be more mindful in general about food.
I had ghee in my morning coffee and bone broth in the evening of my first day. Bone broth just made me hungrier ( felt like a mistake) Day 2 was just water and tea. I broke the fast after 48hrs with a delicious keto meal that my mom (trying out Keto) got inspired to cook. and some plain yogurt that I added fresh blueberries and erythritol too , yum!
Yet I regretted ( in a small way) breaking the fast. Since breaking I am just now on just tea and lemon water, thinking about adding in some apple cider vinegar to water once a day.
Not sure if that qualifies technically as a water fast, but it intuitively feels right. I don’t want to take any manufactured and processed electrolytes, but I also need to function as well.
I am going for 72 hours this time – but seeing how it goes and listening to my body.
Any thoughts, experiences, or advice?
especially curious about the wisdom of workouts in a fasted state for a newbie faster.
