Yesterday I ate 4 squares of dark chocolate at like 5pm and then I wasn't hungry the rest of the day (I'd had 2 scrambled eggs + 1 almond pancake for breakfast, 1 sweet potato + salad for lunch).
When I came home at midnight after a play, I felt awful, shaky, and weak and I couldn't breathe properly. I had tea with a lot of honey to bring my blood sugar levels back up...
Has this happened to you on accidental IFs before? Is it just from undereating or?

tanya, you're making an awful lot of threads...
For someone with an ED background, don't start IF'ing until you are very, very solid in PB. Honestly, you don't really seem stable at all, so I'd stay away from it.
I don't IF, cos I know it can quickly mess me up. And when you want to bring your blood sugar up, don't rush to SUGAR as they make it spike and go down almost just as fast. Go for a solid PB meal instead.
And yes, I am posting a lot. I'm new, just wanna get a hang of things. And thanks, but I am actually very stable and doing great.
You aren't keto-adapted yet, so your body still has trouble switching from glucose to fat-burning. IF is much easier when you eat under 50 g of carbs for awhile (a few months) and get used to being in ketosis.
I think that is caused by entering a fast with too much carb/sugar in your system. I can only fast easily if I am eating good proteins and fats - too high carb and I get exactly what you did.

When you do have a sugar crash have a PROTEIN and fat snack. Wait 30 minutes, if you are still shaky then have veggies. bell pepper, tomato or carrot are good slow sugar. But not FIRST
