      Hello Dr Ekberg, some years ago I did 30 days water fasting. It wasn’t difficult besides the progressive thirstiness – I had to stop it since no amount of water was able to quench my thirst. The coming back from the fast was a nightmare – long story short – my mucus membranes (and I suspect maybe even cell membranes to some extent) were leaking like a sift. I suspect this was a vitamins and mineral deficiency. Is there any provision of maintaining the normal intake of those while it doesn’t count as eating (breaking the fast)?

    Dear dr. Ekberg, I am so grateful to you! You are my go to source on health, and you led my keto journey, until I migrated to carnivore. I found dr. Antony Chaffee’s argument convincing that carnivore is the proper human diet, and I feel the best on it. He explains how autophagy is the natural state on a carnivore diet due to the absence of excess insulin, not due to fasting. I think, this is why just a fasting mimicking can also work.

    Dr Sten it’s so wonderful that you are presenting your videos in so many different languages. I have wondered if you may sometime consider recording them in your own language too. I think there might be some Swedish 🇸🇪 people who would appreciate that. Me for sure would absolutely love to hear you speak your mother tongue language.. I have asked you previously to speak a bit in your videos as I have never heard you speak Swedish before. But still I haven’t heard a word of it…And I am convinced many of your millions of followers will adore hearing it too… It would be beautiful if it is recorded naturally and not AI adjusted like the rest of the languages. It was my birthday yesterday and I thought maybe I could make a birthday wish today…. Oh I do hope you would consider it. Sending lots of love like always ♥️♥️♥️

  7. @vzenzaza on May 31, 2024 at 11:12 am

    Yes. Extended fasting can be difficult. I regularly do 72-hr fasts; BUT, I worked my way up to it by first doing intermittent fasting (16/8 then 18/6 or 20/4) for several MONTHS. Then, I fasted for 24 hours with only coffee, water, and tea. Eventually, I got to the point where I needed only salted water and/or unflavored electrolyte powder in my liquid fasts. Now, I don’t get hungry at all on a 72-hr fast, but I still sometimes feel tired — so I just take an extra nap. My point: feeling weak or tired does not necessarily mean you’re not meant to do extended water fasts! It’s a process! It requires thought, trial, error, and time. So, as a carnivore, I avoid all fruits, veggies, and other plant foods (which include things like olive oil and herbal teas). And as carbs are actually sugar molecules, and I don’t do sugar, my ONLY carbs come from unsweetened, strained Greek yogurt. So, while this alternative is nice, please realize that full-out water fasting could still be right for you IF you take the time and effort to work up to it!🙏🌹

    • @vzenzaza on May 31, 2024 at 2:05 pm

      @@betty0672 That’s great! Congratulations! It’s great to have people like Dr. Ekberg and Dr. Berry as guides because much fasting research by “medical experts” is actually based on Ramadan fasting. I’ve actually written a few of these researchers, asking if they understand that there are different kinds of fasts (and thus different standards) and they never respond. For example, they like to claim that “dehydration can be beneficial,” because dry fasting is not uncommon during Ramadan — but as intermittent/extended fasters, we realize the importance of staying hydrated and maintaining a good electrolyte balance! I once did a five-day fast, but the literature seems to suggest that unless you’re fighting a serious illness, 72-hr fasts are sufficient for reaching that “sweet spot” (autophagy, etc.). So all the best to you! You can do it!

      Did a 10 day, 7 day and couple of 5 day fasts but to be honest , I felt not very good afterwards, but these weekend fasts are amazing.

    Fasting for 3 days: basically do nothing, just stop eating.nThis method: take 5 days to follow a strict regiment with timing and specific foods.nWhich one is easy, really

    • @massachusettssportscentral9444 on May 31, 2024 at 1:19 pm

      Had the same thought.
      Doing something like this for 5 days seems like a huge PITA.

      I think by day 3 I’d probably just have the EVOO straight since the rest of the food isn’t particularly appealing.

    • @JLang-bn3hs on May 31, 2024 at 2:10 pm

    • @hiriasbloodweaver8593 on May 31, 2024 at 6:52 pm

      Dry fasting is even easier, since beyond the first day, 1 day of dry fasting equals 3 days of water fasting, including amount of fat burned (!).
      Dry fasting for 3 days is basically equivalent to water fasting a whole week, but it’s much easier to pull off!
      On water fasting, you will lose 300g of fat per day, on dry fasting around 1kg of fat.
      However, in both cases this is beyond the first day, as you will lose mainly water on the first day. Also, in both cases, if you feel bad, like severe headache, nausea, dizzyness, just stop rather than persevere. Don’t risk your health, you can try again later.

I was sweating & voiding out all my salt & it made me feel awful. Learning to replace my electrolytes really made me feel like I had a new tool to help me master the fast. Thanks, Doc. 💪🏽
