Wooohooo!!! You made it! Our last day of Fast Training Week!
I would love to hear what you all learned from this exercise this week.
Every fast I have done has provided me with great insight into my relationship with food and what different foods do to my body.
Most people only judge their food choices by what the scale says or how their clothes fit. Then they restrict calories without every looking at what types of foods they are eating and how it affects them.
What I love about these fasting weeks is that they provide you with lots of opportunities to learn.
For example, I heard many of you say how hard it is to keep protein low. Well keeping protein low periodically is a fabulous way to stimulate autophagy. So throwing in some low protein days into your diet variation plan would be really smart.
Just because the fast is over, don't lose the lessons you learned this week. There is an opportunity here to change the way you approach your food. So think about what you want to take from this fast into your daily life.
I'd love to hear from you all what your insights were from this week and what changes you might make to your diet going forward.
If you have any other questions about your experience this week, post in comments below.
Hope you've enjoyed this fast!
After 25 hours fasting, my blood glucose is 5.0 mmol/l, blood ketones is 4.6 mmol/l making a GKI of 1.1. Fantastic!
Today, being Friday is usually a no-meat day. I’ve prepared cauliflower mash with lots of butter, Brussels sprouts, avocado, spinach and sauerkraut. I’ve followed it with Avocado Chia seed pudding.
I’ll go back to eating a normal Keto meal tomorrow. As I’ve been used to eating OMAD (one meal a day) for some time now, that will continue.
I’ve used the Carb Manager Ap to track my foods. I use separate monitors for blood glucose and blood ketones as it is more convenient. The On Call Dual monitor can measure both, but it involves changing the key code, which is too much messing about.
