7 Day Fat Fast vs 7 Day Water Fast
188.6 lbs 35 inches Full Keto Eating.
As food weight is piling up (haven't shit yet) I am still impressed with the results of the hybrid fast. Been a solid 35 inches and still going... As I know from previous long fasts there will be a spike in weight followed by a leveling off and settling that will happen around my new set point. I have noticed the appetite has been decreasing as well, feeling full and satisfied today, not even close to hungry, this begins some spontaneous fasting which often happens on the ketogenic diet. It is still too soon into the refeed to give a verdict to the 7 day hybrid fast, but in the video above I discuss some new things I will try in the future, as I decide to lean more heavily on the fat fasts, simply because they are just so damned easy to do.
In other news I have an appointment to get my blood work at the end of the month and my annual check up with my doctor. So we will get to see what the ketogenic diet has been doing to me. If I have to predict, I would say my HDL/triglycerides are going to be good, but my total cholesterol and LDL will be high. Although my doctor may not agree, I will ignore the LDL levels, because I believe as I am fat adapted that high LDL when fasted (have to be fasted for the labs) is normal. There is evidence to suggest that eating a lot of fat actually lowers it, and fasting raises it when fat adapted. I will discuss this further in the next video.
In other news I will be recording a podcast tomorrow and it should be available for the weekend. Friday I will livestream at 4pm Eastern time and am announcing it early here on the website as I believe the most dedicated of you check the website regularly, and should get first crack at livestreams. Will be updating the live stream page today as well here on this website. Things have slowed financially for the channel, so I will have to ramp up the amount of Uber I am doing to pay the bills. Hopefully I can still keep the content flowing at the same time. In the meantime enjoy today's video. Will have another posted tomorrow as well. Have a nice, motherfucking day, and shit.
