I am pretty new to the primal diet (past three weeks or so) and I'd like to start IFing. I ate dinner at around 4 last night (early!) and fasted until lunch, which was around 12. I ended up getting a hypoglycemia episode right before I finished my 20 hour fast.
18 hours seems to be my fasting limit. Can I change this? In the past, I was prone to hypoglycemia attacks, and though I'm less so since I started going primal, I would like to completely eliminate this, or at least reduce it as much as possible so I can IF.
Here's a breakdown of my diet, if it helps:
Breakfast: Usually either about 4 oz of meat with leftover steamed veggies or a handful of nuts + deli meat.
Lunch: BAS with loads of olive oil.
Dinner: Again, 4 oz meat + veggies
Sometimes I have an afternoon and midmorning snack, usually a handful of nuts or dried fruit.
