I no longer listen to the radio or saved music when I drive. I now listen to the voice of someone talking about LCHF, nutritional ketosis or related subject matter and I have discovered someone new:
I came across a nugget that protein stop/reduces autophagy during extended fasts. Dr. Fung recommends consuming bone broth during fasting with the purpose of the consumption of the broth aids in being able to complete a fasting interval, which is fine. When I fast, I want the maximum benefit so I am now limiting my fasting fluids to tea and water. I recently completed a 60 hour fast with tea and water and it was fine.
I will confess that I have given in to putting cream in my coffee on the days I was intermittently fasting (rather than black coffee). I now reserve coffee + cream consumption to the days I am not fasting. And you know what, it tastes wonderful.
I will continue to research the autophagy and protein connection.
More to come….
The Diet Doctor website has a lot of free content. They also offer additional content through membership. I signed up for the 30 day trial and the cost is $9 dollars a month after that. The membership includes video courses, movies, interviews, presentations and Q&A. The videos are professionally produced and the audio is great. I signed up because I wanted to see Dr. Fung’s video “The Power of a 7-Day Fast”.
I have come across a very interesting perspective on appropriate ketogenic macros which seems very logical to me. In nutritional ketosis, when your primary source of fuel is fat, it makes sense to count a percentage of YOUR stored body fat as part of your fat macros IF you want to lose weight. Continue reading
Just like NSV’s (non-scale victories), the importance of knowing what motivates you beyond the scale is integral to sustaining a lifestyle change. I was reading a blog post and question number 8 reached up off of the page and smacked me:
My scale measures out to the 10th decimal place. With that said, scale progress over the last month is equivalent to a whopping 0.2 pounds. Since I weigh every day, I knew this outcome was on the horizon. I have been thinking about it and figure several things contributed to my plateau.
