Today, I’m going to share seven critical things you need to know about prolonged fasting. Fasting is very simple yet very powerful.
Snacking is one of the worst things for your insulin and your overall health. Food is nourishing, but to heal your body, you might be better off not eating.
Snacking causes hunger, weight gain, fatigue, and moodiness—among other potential health problems. Yet, simply not eating can create so many powerful health effects.
Throughout history, many great thinkers, including Hippocrates and Plato, have even had positive things to say about fasting.
Seven critical things you need to know about prolonged fasting (72 hours or longer):
1. Only drink water (2.5 liters), tea, and coffee—and take supplements (electrolytes, B vitamins, vitamin D, and vitamin C)
2. Take electrolytes (including sea salt)
3. Go very slow and gradual when refeeding, and avoid carbs, sugar, and a large meal
4. Don’t take apple cider vinegar
5. Do Healthy Keto when you break your fast
6. Understand the dawn phenomenon (your liver is making sugar due to insulin resistance)
7. Know when to break your fast (don’t stop when it’s uncomfortable—push through the transition phase)
