I’m planning to kick start my ketosis into high gear with “Fasting February”. Anyone can feel free to join in. This is an initiative to improve my health. It is NOT a “fast at all costs” program. If at any point I think my body isn’t up to fasting, I will stop and eat. So with that caveat, this is what it is. My plan is to fast for 20 of the 28 days in February. Most likely it will be on a 5 fasting days followed by two eating days type of schedule.
For some reason I’ve found fasting harder than usual in January, and I’d really like to change that. In order to prepare, I’m going to have a few days of “fat fasting” to close out January. I will also have several short (24 – 42) hour fasts in the last days of January to get my body used to fasting again.
I plan on getting a dexa scan before and after so I can see how the fasting impacts my body composition. I’ll get the before scan a day or two before February starts. I may wait until mid-March for the after scan. The reason for this is I have seen other peoples’ after scans take a while to stabilize as they get back to normal after a very extended fast. And I may be too cheap to take one immediately after and two weeks after.
Any advice or thoughts? Anyone want to join in?
