Hi, I’ve been keto, on and off, for almost a year now. I can’t afford a keto meter so I just have to assume I’m in ketosis based on what I’m eating. I’ve done a lot of IF and some 3-7 day extended, but I’m starting into my first really long fast.
Here’s my plan. Water only with these exceptions. Black coffee and tea, keto-ade, multivitamin, and additional salt as needed. And spry gum. Meds are metformin and levothyroxin.
The plan I discussed with my doctor was for three months.
I’m wondering if taking probiotics would be a good idea. My hope is to minimize refeeding issues.
My refeeding plan is plain bone broth the first day, bone broth with butter the second, and bone broth with butter and cream the third. Then bone broth with hamburger the rest of the week just increasing the quantity. And continuing with the keto-ade through that week.
I did my labs the day before I started my fast and I’ll do them again the day before I stop, so I’ll be able to go over my refeeding plan with my doctor.
