Some of my friends have asked about The Keto Diet And Fasting. If you are new to the keto lifestyle and/or just starting a keto diet, the idea of fasting might sound a little scary. Fasting is actually something that you will want to address and I feel that the sooner the better.
There are some very hard fasts but the Good news is there are also some Very Easy Fasts. When you first begin to fast, a simple 12 or 14 hour fast might be the easiest. In a 12 hour fast, you just don’t eat during a 12 hour period. If you have your last food at say 7 p.m. you will have completed the fast at 7 a.m. however, if you can add just 2 more hours and make it a 14 hour fast the benefits increase and really help you get into ketosis.
I am a lifetime faster, or at least that is the plan and the fast I use is called the 5-1-1. Although my goal is a 3-2-2 I still need to write the meal plan for that step, which I plan to do this week. This plan allows me to follow keto closely 5 days a week, have a Feast Day and then have a Fast day. The nice thing is that I can work the fast day so that I start it at around 6 p.m. and then have a small meal at 6 p.m. the following day. So I am never going a complete day without a meal. Super easy. I first learned of this from Dr. Dan Pompa who I consider a mentor. He Explains the health benefits in such detail that it makes you wish you had been fasting forever. If no other benefit gets your attention, the slowing of the aging process should.
And by the way, the 3-2-2 means that I follow a strict keto 3 keto days a week, have 2 Feat days a week and 2 fast days a week. I don’t go crazy on my Feast Days but I do allow myself to enjoy some of those foods that I would not eat on a strict keto day. I will share my menu plan if you would like some ideas.

Today’s Parting Thought: It is said that we are what we eat, also just as important is how often we eat and how much we eat. We need all three to complete the journey.
