Zsófi just finished her first 3 day fast!
In the video she tries her best to give you some advice on how to best approach fasting for 72 hours (3 days), so you have some ideas on how to do a long fast like this. She also talks about her expectations for the 3 day fast, she goes over her fasting staples, her strategies for not breaking the fast, how to work out fasted (especially if you’ve been doing Keto anyway), her experience working out after not having eaten anything for over 42 hours, how to break your fast (and how high her ketone readings were right before!) and ultimately, what she learned from her fasting experience.

09:31 What I Learned from this experience
Take into account that your stomach is likely going to shrink a little after such a long fast, so don’t expect to be able to eat your usual meal portion right away! When you break your fast, start with a small, light meal (like she did in the video) approx. 30-60 minutes before a big meal to restart your digestion.
Apart from having an entire 72 hours without consuming any calories, your reduced hunger afterwards is another reason why fasting can be a fantastic tool to lose weight!
Just please make sure that, especially if you have a medical condition, you speak to your doctor first before attempting longer fasts like this.
Also, if you’re interested in anything related to fasting, no matter whether you’re following a Ketogenic Diet or not, we highly recommend you get this book.
It’s also available as an audiobook read by the authors themselves. If you haven’t tried Audible yet, you can actually get it for free. If you cancel your membership within a month of signing up you never pay anything and get to keep your audiobooks forever! 🙂
