Finished Eight Weekend Fasting

Monday, April 02, 2018

There was good news on the scale this morning. I've been looking forward to Monday breakfast all weekend and broke the fast with the usual 2 eggs, roast duck plus avocado with garlic and rice wine vinegar, and some almonds. Starting this weekend, I'm going to start the fast after Fri lunch. This will make it 68 hours instead of 60. I'll have 2 tablespoons of coconut oil for Fri dinner as it supposes to have ketones.

I've added Himalayan salt to my protocol. So for Sat and Sun:

Morning: 1 tbs Activated Charcoal
Mid Day: Magnesium Chloride, Mineral capsule and Shilajit
Evening: 1 tbs Activated Charcoal

Plus Mineral water + Pink salt throughout the day

    Ramona, I was wrong then. I thought that MCT oil can put you in ketosis sooner. Since MCT oil is made from coconut oil and I have a lot of CO laying around, so I thought I put it to use. No big deal, I'll just have to find some use for it. Come to think of it, I may just stick with Fri dinner as the last meal before fasting. I miss my foods. LOL

    P.S. I'm back into making gelatin again. There are a lot of foods to eat on my 5 feasting days. Plantains for potassium, Pumpkin seeds for zinc and magnesium, Almonds for the oil, Dates for oxytocin, Mackerel and sardines for Omega-3.Chia for more Omega-3. I'm not shy about carbs because the 2-day fasting helps improve my insulin sensitivity.

    I love your break-fast meal! YUM!

    Just so you're aware, the coconut oil for Friday dinner breaks your fast from a physiological perspective... "Fasting, in the strictest sense is defined as the voluntary abstinence from all food and drink, except water, as long as the nutritional reserves of the body are adequate to sustain normal function. One cannot achieve the powerful benefits of complete fasting if any sort of nutrition is included. If any sort of nutrition is included that body cannot enter the "protein-sparing" fasting state. Also the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of a pure water fast, essential for the healing of autoimmune illnesses cannot be mobilized." Joel Fuhrman

    Also, CO doesn't have ketones. CO is a medium chain triglyceride fat, which means that it cannot be stored by the body, and goes directly to the liver to be metabolized... CONVERTED to ketones for immediate use.

    I'm curious... if you're fasting at length, which would dramatically raise your ketone levels anyway, why would you interrupt your fast with CO simply for the ketones? Essentially, your body won't use those ketones until you've exhausted all glycogen, so at only 6 hours fasted, you're just going to pee them out anyway, and delay your body's natural processes (ketone production, autophagy, etc.).

    Inquiring minds want to know!
