    Successful First 24 HR Fast!

    Shop Now
    In the past I have always used my diabetes as an excuse not to fast, but now that I IF almost daily, I can't use that reason as a crutch anymore.

    Today I Kung Fu'd my first 24 hour fast! "Break-fast" included 6 oz corned beef brisket, half a bag of steam fresh veggies, several tablespoons of coconut oil, 1 serving of awesome maca bar, some coconut cream, a hard boiled egg, and some raw milk cheddar cheese. YUM! Sunday never tasted so good *contented sigh*

    Sitting at 1300 cals for the day; 74% fat, 18% protein, 8% carb.

    Thx! Feeling very sleepy now. I don't suppose fat has a tryptophan effect?

    I noticed I was very sleepy when I ate after an IF a few weeks ago. I skipped breakfast and packed a bigger lunch for school. I was all bright and energetic in the morning. After lunch, I was all sleepy and groggy. Funny...

    nicely job on the fasting, although i wouldn't dismiss the grogginess so easily.

    I have experienced that as well but iv never given it much thought. there must be some explanation for it hmmmm...

    I wonder if it would have something to do with insulin. maybe breaking the fast should be done with a specific meal?

    try breaking the fast with meat one day, then eggs the next, then veggies and see if there is a difference.
