    I’ve been intermittently fasting for months, recently started fasting over the weekends, not eating from Thursday night all the way to Sunday night, it’s tough but it gets easier every time I do it. I am coming to a year now since I started my health journey, I lost 40kg of fat, and feel my best. God bless you Dr. Sten Ekberg.

    • @TMB-B10M on February 9, 2024 at 12:18 pm

      I’m carnivore and have been fat adapted for almost a year now and I do really well at the OMAD fast, but the last couple of 3 day fasts I’ve tried have been miserable and by day 3 I’m so dizzy, weak, and sick that I have to eat. I have a keto mojo and by the morning of day three, I’m at glucose of 71 and ketones of 4.9. I drink my electrolyte fasting drops, but I still get dizzy.

      Since I’ve been eating zero carbs for months and feeling great, I thought fasting long term would get easier, but it’s getting worse. People say they love the mental clarity when they long term fast but I get brain fog. I seem to be experiencing the opposite of normal. I want the benefits of a long term fast, but maybe I’m just someone who can’t do them. I still have 50 pounds left to lose, so plenty of fat left to work off, but I’ve lost almost 100 pounds so far!

      I wish I could say the more I do my 3 day fasts, the easier they get, but I’m one of those that keeps getting worse. It also creates stomach issues for me when I start eating again (even though I start slowly with introducing food)

    • @retrospectivelyspectacular2331 on February 9, 2024 at 12:29 pm

      @@TMB-B10M it’s my third weekend in a row now, by Saturday I will be dizzy and feel like I want to faint. I found resting is essential, drinking water, tea and coffee, the later two with coconut cream really takes the edge off. I’m sorry to read it isn’t as easy for you as it may be to me, but know it’s not “easy” it’s definitely effort to keep it going. My goal essentially for me is to lose as much of my left over fat as I can, and be able to go without food for at least 3 days a week while only eating dinner for 4 days. But I also been thinking maybe eat every 48 hours that could also be powerful. About that mental clarity, I’ve had it throughout up to Xmas where I took a “break” from the diet, it was really really bad and I wish I didn’t take that break it took me a whole month finding back to it. But you’re doing the right thing, defeating the hunger and food addiction is the best thing you can do. I feel free

Then the other day I made it black and bravely took a sip… and I was surprised. Years ago I would spit it out and say never again. But this time I thought…not that bad. I can do this.
