I have been keto since 2016 and doing IF (18/6 then changed to 20/4) since 2019. Recently I decided to trying a longer fast of 48 hours.
In the mornings I have the same routine every day. I get up, use the bathroom and the weigh my self. After day 1 of fasting my weight was unchanged. After day 2 I have gained 2 LBS. I did a Ketone test and I am in Ketosis but only slightly (normal for a long term keto diet). I have been drinking alot of water and only food is my normal Vitamins.
In the past 6 months I have gains about 20 LBS and I dont want to go back. I have added Cardio (I use to just weight train). At my worst point I was 380LBS (6ft 4inches tall) I got down below 220 and was steady for multiple years but now I am hovering around 240. What can I do?
As far as my personal stuff
I Shoot for 70% fat 25% proteins and 5% carbs but it does vary some.
In highschool I was pretty athletically built but grad school and working at the same time killed that. I don’t know my body fat % or muscle mass… At my worst I was insulin resistant but my doctor says I no longer am. My heath currently is good but the weight gain has been very quick and I am afraid that it may not stop.
It goes beyond the fasting, this is just the most recient thing I have tried.
