Ok. Because I’ve received my renpho smart scale a week ago, I’ve decided to do a 7 day or longer water fast. To see what the result would be.
I’ve been doing keto*IF for a year and a half now and since summer I was stuck in a plateau. In fact I’ve gained 6-10kg since summer (fluctuates a lot)
So the main goal was to lose the summer weight plateau, heal my fatty liver and to reach deep autophagy.
After 7 days of water fasting I’ve reached keto of 3.2mmol/l with glucose of 3.9mmol/l. Aka 1.2 GKI ratio.
The result were kinda disappointing as I’ve never reached a high level of Ketosis. Or <1GKI
But!!! My upper stomach aka fatty liver has shrunk a lot. It almost feel hollow now. And I can feel that the fat cells around my body were shrinking. They felt like small tadpoles before and now most of them feel like deflated balloons. I’m happy about that.
I hope my metabolism is reset now.
But 7 day was the limit I set for myself during this Corona time. After this 7 days I was going to switch to a bone broth fast and have some supplements too. But after a bone broth break I’ve decided to stop the extended fast now. As I feel the results is not worth the effort for me. Although I technically ain’t hungry and I have plenty of energy, I AM thinking about food (recipes) a lot and had a lot of ideas. I want the try them.
(But I also felt very hungry after the bone broth. My body IS craving for more)
After refeeding I’ll do IF+Keto for 2 weeks and then switch to a regimen of 36-72hours fast weekly.
I’ve started preparation for referring by drinking a few cups of bone broth a probiotic pill and mct oiled coffee. (Spent quite some time on the toilet because of this) Tomorrow will be some walnuts and lean meat soup.
Hopefully my ketones will still be high
