Intermittent Fasting & Keto Day Of Eating
See in video & list below what I ate in a day of intermittent fasting for 18 hours of fasting with 6 hours of eating keto.
My BEST source for intermittent fasting is Dr. Fung’s Complete Guide to Fasting. I highly recommend this book as it has helped me so much – hello younger skin & less droopy arms! Here’s what I ate in my six hour eating window:
- Dunkin Donuts Black Iced Coffee (I ALWAYS say no sugar and no cream so they don’t put anything sneaky in there. Starbucks will add “classic” to ALL iced beverages unless you say no classic).
- Tuna, mayo (I recommend Primal Avocado Mayo), cucumber and avocado.
- 1/4 cup of macadamia nuts (I will overeat unless I parcel out).
- 8 slices of bacon (I got han-gry!)
- Decaf coffee with coconut oil.
- Passion Fruit Iced Tea
- Magnesium Bath with Epson Salts
I flushed so much water throughout the day.
*Preplan: I usually prepare the food for my family. Knowing I’m going to be making my son’s breakfast, lunch and dinner takes some planning while I fast. I try to do meal prep when I’m in an eating window for my family so I don’t get triggered or get hunger pains. Knowing my schedule for fasting vs my family’s schedule for meal prep and meal times has greatly helped. Today I didn’t have the opportunity to make my son’s food during my eating window, but I usually try to.
*Sleep: Your body will most likely require more sleep when fasting, at least mine did. Intermittent fasting is a shock to the system and needs rest. Even with an enriched schedule, sleep is mandatory with fasting. I would encourage you to carve out more time to sleep and nap while starting to fast.
