Decent numbers, but what’s most impressive is it was all done in a “Fasted state” #intermittentfasting
You’ll be surprised how tolerant our bodies are to stress. This is especially true when you’re using an alternative fuel source... FAT!!! Once “Fat adapted” you’ll enjoy the benefits of continuous energy with the need to refuel glucose. GET ADAPTED people... #keto#fatadapted#fasting#health

Been taking a break from the high intensity workouts.
I've been fasting for about a month now (16 hours fasting, 8 hour eating window) and I don't notice a whole lot of a difference in anything.
I have a hard time eating my daily caloric intake in 8 hrs.
My weight is stable, but no weight loss, or improvement in "brain activity".
I seem to have less energy overall which is why I haven't done any hardcore workouts and have retreated back to some gentle yoga.
Been doing some @yogawithadriene before bed; it's actually helped me sleep better.
Will carry on with fasting for a while more, and I will listen to my body that's wanting a more relaxed exercise routine.
It's okay not to be okay 🤗
Sometimes the world feels so right, like our very own magical playground 🧚
Sometimes dark clouds gather above us and the world can feel like a spinning vortex of pain, where nothing makes sense and we feel lost, betrayed and utterly alone 😔
And that's okay ... We're not going to feel amazing all the time, that wouldn't be REAL. Sometimes we need to completely fall apart, so that we may piece ourselves together again
When we fast, we go through a deep process of surrender, as we start shedding not just unwanted excess weight but also the unhelpful thought patterns that are keeping us stuck in self sabotage and suffering
Every time we release conditionings we go through what's known as an "ego death" because when we drop a part of what we thought was us, a story that we've been holding on to (often since childhood!), the ego WILL kick up a fuss - it's not going to leave without a fight
And so, the part of you that identifies with that pattern literally has to go. This process can be extremely emotionally challenging at times... you may feel like the world is caving in on you
By accepting where we're at RIGHT NOW and by loving ourselves unconditionally, we can focus on surrendering into whatever's coming up for us in the moment and committing to riding the wave 🌊 no matter how scary
We're so hard on ourselves for not being what we think is expected of us ... And yes, society does layer on the expectations, but actually it's ourselves who are our own worst critics the majority of the time ✨
I've been working a lot lately on accepting everyone for where they're at and not judging them, on shifting the focus when I'm triggered by others away from what THEY're doing to MY own inner state
Tonight some personal conflict arose for me and I've come to realise that I've not been giving myself the same level of patience, compassion and unconditional love in terms of not judging myself for who I'm showing up as right now
New layers and dimensions of this practice are constantly revealing themselves to me as I keep shedding old paradigms and programmes. So grateful for all that fasting is teaching me 🙏
‘Anti-inflammatory’ foods is just a label to mask getting TRULY healthy from the source (Ex. Making sure your mitochondria is happy so it can make you energy.) which is the true path of health. No food can reverse inflammation that’s already going on inside your body.
Inflammation is a response from deep inside your body that it is not happy with something: virus, bacteria, toxins, leaky gut etc. Adding a food that is labeled anti-inflammatory won’t help at all because the source of the problem is still there.
For example: you could eat do called anti inflammatory foods such as veggies, fish oil etc but not heal at all if you are still eating inflammatory foods (grains, sugar, dairy for some people, soy, alcohol). ______
On the other hand, if your body is truly healed from the inside out, it becomes resilient. And so, having an inflammatory food such as ice cream every once in a while will not cause inflammation.
More important than focusing on what an anti-inflammatory food is and what is not is to USE YOUR FOCUS to:
1. Figure out what’s causing inflammation now your body (if you feel tired, overweight, aches and pains, insert here any other symptom of unhealth, you most definitely have inflammation going on)
2. Focusing on subtracting what doesn’t bring you joy from your life. Everyday remove something. (all categories!)
3. Focus on STOP consuming ‘foods’ the human body was not meant to process (ie loads of carbs) and focus on eating fresh foods cooked or not - things not in packages.
Lecisz z uczelni do domu a może z pracy po dzieciaczka do przedszkola. Już wiesz że za godzine będziesz głodna a obiad sam się nie zrobi. Jeszcze na zakupy.. przeciez w szafce i lodówce pustki. Nie doprowadzaj do uczucia głodu! Pusty żołądek z pustym koszykiem w supermarkecie Cie nie wypuści. Kupisz więcej niż potrzebujesz. A jak wrócisz do domu zjesz WSZYSTKO. A wszystkiego zjeść nie chcesz. Co możesz z tym zrobić?
Jaki ja mam sposób na mały głód? 🤔
Tak zwana "przekąska" między drugim śniadaniem a popołudniowym obiadem. Zjedz ją przed wyjściem z pracy, może weź na drogę, usiądź wygodnie i dokończ spokojnie w tramwaju lub pociągu?
Przekąski nie muszą byc kojarzone od razu z czymś niezdrowym i niepożądanym.
Równie dobrze możesz to nazwać posiłkiem.😊
U mnie sprawdzają się takie ze sporą ilością białka i błonnika. Dają mi uczucie sytości na pare godzin.
Spróbuj przewidzieć swój czas poza domem i nie wracaj na głodniaka wpadając w pędzie do kuchni 🤗
My Battle With Binging 🖤
Pregnancy was easy for me: I never got nauseous, no morning sickness, no heart burn, nothing. Everyone always reminding me “how lucky I was”. But overtime I had secretly created a monster & hid behind my problem by calling it a “craving” when in reality, I was constantly binging.
My horrible habits of:
1. Compulsive consumptions
2. Hiding for extra servings
4. & Excessive regrets, while ultimately repeating the urges to indulge ———————————————————————
My pre pregnancy weight was about 125 lbs & the day I gave birth I was at 200 lbs in the hospital, I had completely lost myself to binging. I figured because I was pregnant it was okay to eat the way I had those past 8 months. Little did I know it became a nasty habit, after I would still get those compulsions and I felt trapped. It wasn’t a craving, it was a problem called binging. Finally, a few months after breast feeding with intermittent fasting I found a way to slowly drop my weight! Although, those urges would resurface every so often and even after my second pregnancy I was terrified of regressing. ————————————————————————
•INTERMITTENT FASTING helped me get my body back.
•KETO helped me get my mind back. .
I am now mentally stronger than my binge. Combining intermittent fasting and keto I have learned to intuitively eat, be truly satisfied, listen to my bodies cues & became tougher mentally to prevent binging. It has now been over a year since my last binge & I am so grateful for the journey that has pointed me I. The direction of creating the best version of me! Thank you keto fam for all the love and support ! 🖤
This is the last Day! of 15 Days #fasting It was 5 days of #dryfasting 5 days of #waterfasting 2 days of #juicefasting and 3 refeeding👍Right on time for #thanksgiving 🦃crazy! I can pretty much eat whatever I want again, needless to say I will not spoil my body with unclean foods although I will be eating them...
I lost about 10pds, I believe 2 pds of Muscle. Water and mostly Fat makes up the difference. All Acidic Toxic foods such as Milk Meat Eggs Grains (rice especially highly acidic) Preservatives Sugars and Starches will be even further reduced in my #diet They will be treated the same as alcohol consumption. Fruits will be numb 1, Cooked vegetables 2nd, Raw 3rd, (Alkaline) Grains 4th👍🍃
The new palate acquired during the fast will make this easy. There has to come a time when enough is enough, break the cycle. Generational habits diseases curses whatever. I will be doing less extreme fasting cleanses throughout the future to futher reduce any toxic buildup accumulated from birth as well as new toxins from daily living just to maintain an overall good internal balance. And mental health. Don't forget the Gut is directly linked to brain health.
Doesn’t matter what diet I’m on, salads will always be BAE. 😍 Hope everyone’s Thanksgiving prep is going well! I was in an accident yesterday so my prep has been very limited & quite painful. 😅 I’m fine, just sore from the impact. Anywho, what are you guys cooking? 👀
I did not plan to fast. I did not set a determined time it would go once I started. This began as what I thought would be a 24hr recovery from some poor choices the previous day. But when I came to the end of the first 24hrs I wasn't hungry, so I decided to sleep through the night and end it at 30hrs. Needless to say, at 30 I thought why not 48. I was not struggling with hunger issues at all. At 48hrs I decided to sleep another night, planning to break the fast at 60hrs. However, my kids had dentist appointments and I had errands to run this morning which brought me to the conclusion at 65 hours. If Thanksgiving was not tomorrow I would have continued but I decided to reintroduce food today to allow my digestive system to ease back into a routine. I feel incredible. During the fast I drank water, black coffee, and green or chamomile tea. I also continued to take my supplements: Xfactor Plus (fully methylated) high potency multi vitamin/multi mineral; vitamin D3; and Intestinal Soothe and Build which consists of slippery elm bark, plantain, chamomile, rose hips, and marshmallow root extract. The last one is to protect my easily irritated stomach....
I'm introducing food slowly today so that I can enjoy a moderate meal tomorrow with family and friends. Second pic is my first food after the fast. Steamed veggies and some protein in a couple hours🍽
The best part is I am down 4lbs as a result of this little experiment. Perhaps even bigger than that, is that I've stayed in control in spite of having company, cooking more than unusual, and teenager drama! I have so much energy! I'm off to do some cooking for tomorrow.... 🤹♀️
