MY 3 DAY FASTING EXPERIENCE


KetoFeasting.jpg

Lately I haven’t been feeling great, my joints have been more inflamed and I’ve been really tired, so I just wanted to try something different. I decided to try a bone broth fast. I didn’t follow any specific protocol or anything, but I decided to stick to coffee, bone broth and water. Originally my plan was 24 hours, but I was actually able to last 68 hours!!!

I had two different brands of bone broth at home already, so I used those. Then I kept with my morning routine of getting a coffee at Starbucks. My usual order is a Venti Misto with Heavy Cream these days. A Misto is coffee with steamed milk (heavy cream in my case). The first two days I had 2 coffees each day and that really helped me to not get as hungry until later in the day. Here’s a breakdown of exactly what I ate:

 

DAY ONE (Fast began at 10pm the night before….)

  • 8am Venti Misto with Heavy Whipping Cream from Starbucks

  • 11am Large Bulletproof Coffee

  • 2pm 1 cup of Chicken Mushroom Bone Broth (Kettle & Fire)

  • 4pm 1 cup of Chicken Mushroom Bone Broth (Kettle & Fire)

  • 5pm Venti Hot Peach Tranquility Tea from Starbucks

  • 6pm 1 cup of Chicken Bone Broth (Bonafide Provisions)

  • 8pm 1 cup of Chicken Bone Broth (Bonafide Provisions)

  • 6 Perfect Keto Electrolyte Pills (20% off with code KETOINTHECITY)

  • I also had water throughout the day

DAY TWO

  • 8am Venti Misto with Heavy Whipping Cream from Starbucks

  • 10am Venti Misto with Heavy Whipping Cream from Starbucks

  • 2pm 1 cup of Chicken Bone Broth (Bonafide Provisions)

  • 4pm 1 cup of Chicken Bone Broth (Bonafide Provisions)

  • 6pm 1 cup of Chicken Bone Broth (Bonafide Provisions)

  • Perfect Keto Electrolyte Pills (20% off with code KETOINTHECITY)

  • I also had water throughout the day

DAY THREE

  • 8am Venti Misto with Heavy Whipping Cream from Starbucks

  • 2pm 1 cup of Turkey Bone Broth (Bonafide Provisions)

  • 4pm 1 cup of Turkey Bone Broth (Bonafide Provisions)

  • 6pm FAST BROKEN!

  • I also had water throughout the day

I also measured my ketones throughout the process. I used a breath sensor that was sent to me called Keyto. It was the first time I had used a breath sensor instead of blood testing. This particular unit syncs with your phone and is super easy to use. It doesn’t give you the same kind of measurements that the blood testers give. I was not in ketosis when I started this journey, which probably partly explains why I have been low energy lately.

A lot of people think that if you eat keto friendly food that you’re automatically in ketosis. That’s just not the case even if you restrict your carbs. You might have eaten too much or you might have eaten a new food that caused you to slip out. But when you are fat adapted you can get back into ketosis quicker and easier than others. The first day I measured Keyto Level 3, almost in light ketosis. The second day I measured Keyto Level 4, in light ketosis. On the third day I measured Keyto Level 5, in ketosis! YAY!

I really enjoyed the fasting process, which I was surprised about! I will definitely do it more often, I also think that I will probably start sipping bone broth throughout the day on a regular basis instead of eating lunch and then I will just eat dinner. Bone broth has so many great benefits, I really want to start incorporating it more into my everyday routine.

BONE BROTH BENEFITS

  • Rich in nutrients

  • Protects the joints and it may help fight osteoarthritis

  • Reduces inflammation

  • Healing for the gut

  • Aids in sleep

  • Supports weight loss

If you’re looking for a solution to get into ketosis quicker or just looking to reset, this might be a good approach to try. Besides feeling great overall I also lost 6lbs over the last few days which is another great bonus.


Perfect Keto - My Four Essentials

One of the things that is so amazing about our Keto Community is the awesome Keto Products that now exist to help you transition to and maintain a Ketogenic Lifestyle.

Yes, Switching to Keto has its challenges, but I’ve found that investing in some Keto Supplements can really help.

That’s why I’ve decided to share 4 Perfect Keto Products that are worth your while! Learn how to incorporate these 4 Perfect Keto Products into your everyday routine. 

Do you need a Ketone Base? What's the difference between MCT Oil and MCT Powder? Why and When should you take electrolytes? And what in the world are Nootropics? 

Get all of your questions answered! 


MCT OIL and MCT OIL POWDER

Hopefully by now, you’ve experienced the joy that is Fatty Coffee. If you haven’t read all about it on this recipe blog. MCT Oil in my coffee with some butter keeps me fueled well into the afternoon. It is an essential part of my Ketogenic Life.

Perfect Keto has Pure C8 MCT Oil. It is the highest quality MCT made from C8s. This is the type of MCT that won’t upset your gut.

Perfect Keto takes this amazing MCT Oil and turns it into a powder so that it is easier to incorporate into Shakes, and Baked Goods. They even make single packets so that you can carry MCT on the go.

My favorite part of Perfect Keto MCT Oil Powder is that it comes in 4 different flavors: Matcha, Salted Caramel, Vanilla, and Chocolate.


EXOGENOUS KETONE BASE

Getting your Macros calculated is the first thing to do when switching to Keto. After that the goal is to use these calculations to get your body into Ketosis- the state in which your body burns Ketones for Fuel.

Exogenous Ketones are a great way to help your body transition. Now that I am in Ketosis, I use Perfect Keto’s Ketone Base when I I’m feeling a little sluggish or need a little energy boost before or after a work out.

It’s great to add to your coffee in the morning to set yourself up for a “good Macros” day! It can also help get you back into Ketosis after a higher carb meal than you were anticipating.


NOOTROPICS

Perfect Keto has created a multivitamin for your brain. It’s called Nootropics and it is awesome!!

This Chocolate Flavored supplement contains few select herbs, amino acids, and lipids that support mental alertness, clarity and concentration so you can operate at full capacity. It also contains Exogenous Ketones, MCT Oil Powder and Collagen for Soft Tissue Support.

Perfect Keto Nootropics keeps my brain engaged and clear for the entire day!


ELECTROLYTES

By now I am pretty much a broken record about Electrolytes!

Avoid the dreaded “Keto Flu” by upping your Electrolytes. The process of transitioning to Keto flushes out a lot of your electrolytes making you feel horrible.

Grab a smart water, increase your Himalayan Pink salt intake, and if all else fails, try an Electrolyte Supplement.

This one from Perfect Keto is my favorite.

One of the biggest deterrents for people thinking about switching to Keto is the "Keto Flu". But I promise that these symptoms can be bypassed by balancing your electrolytes. 

Electrolyte balance is one of the most critical - yet often overlooked - components of a successful and enjoyable ketogenic diet experience. 

A sudden shortage in these electrolytes is the culprit behind the muscle cramps, brain fog, headaches, low energy, and digestive and sleep issues that are commonly referred to in keto circles as the “keto flu”.

Perfect Keto is launching a brand new product today: Perfect Keto Electrolytes These Electrolyte capsules are will prevent and get rid of the dreaded "Keto Flu". They will also give a boost of energy to those already living the Keto Lifestyle.
