First post in the forum. Been Keto for almost 2 months now and started accidentally intermittent fasting a few weeks back, been weaving that in and out the past couple weeks, and even had a couple 24hour fasts. Discovered the 2ketodudes podcasts a couple weeks in and listen to a couple episodes a day on my long commute. I am still not current but enjoying following the episodes.
Well I have been speaking with my friend, who is also keto, about planning a monthly 72 fast much like I heard Richard doing on the 2ketodudes podcasts. My friend just got back on keto after a 2 week break for his wedding and honeymoon. So we held off for this month and planned the end of September so he was well fat adapted again.
Well in the shower this morning I don’t know what it was but I just thought to myself " Screw it! I am going to fast a few days myself." I have a planned family camping trip this weekend, so I figured I would fast up to that point I thought about fasting for the camping trip to reduce having to bring keto food for my wife and I, but my wife didn’t like the idea.(She is still having trouble with keto). Her family that is coming is also very weird about the whole diet and think its horrible for me to not eat, so I decided to do it before, but who knows if I feel good enough I may continue it into the trip anyway, I don;t really care what they think about it, just tried to move the 3 days to before to avoid the conflict, but maybe 3 days will become 5 days who knows!
I am on hour 21 right now and it is going well, hardest part so far is missing my BP coffee this morning, I am not much of a black coffee drinker, but I have been making it work. I have had some hunger the past couple hours, but like they say hour 18-24 is the hardest, so I am pushing through!
I feel great and can’t wait to see how the next few days go. Any tips from the experts out there?
