According to Dr Nick and Dr. Boz, the ketogenic diet or a low carb diets helps with fasting.
you won’t have blood sugar swings
low carb diets are more satiating
you’ll have less cravings
balanced nutrients especially if you have lots of vegetables
both doctors suggest starting with the keto diet first, then your body will be adapted and will know how to burn ketones and fat for enegy, then when you fast your body is ready to go
Dr. Boz fasts every week, starting on Sunday, sometimes for 12 hours sometimes for 3 days.
She also says:
get a tribe
fasting pushes your ketosis up a notch
she tracks her blood sugar divided by ketones
so if blood sugar is 70 and ketones is 3
which makes the ratio 23.
this monitors the “intensity of the fast”
it might be easier to
every time we fast, we think of emptying the sugar out of your liver
crutches to use
if you’re starting out
think that you have to teach your mitochondria to burn ketones and fat as well as sugar
for many people, you haven’t burned anything but sugar for years
you probably shouldn’t try fasting until you know your body can burn ketones
Dr Boz really recommends measuring your ketones and your blood sugar on a regular basis
Not medical advice. That’s what doctors are for
Keto is helpful! It’s Keto-tastic
Get Motivated. Get Fasted.
