14 Things to Consume to Make Fasting Easier

14 Things to Consume to Make Fasting Easier

March 6, 2020 100 By William Morgan


let’s talk about the 14 things you can
consume to make fasting much easier realize that when you do fasting
anything that you’re consuming other than water is going to break your fast
to some degree but these are the items that will have a very very minor effect
on your ability to get right back into fasting and when we’re talking about
fasting we’re talking about lowering your ketosis we’re talking about raising
insulin that type of thing and obviously the biggest thing that will break your
fast is refined carbohydrates or sugar okay the high carbohydrate diet protein
also has the ability to break your fast because protein can stimulate insulin
and a good portion of protein actually turns into fuel in your body and this is
why if you’re doing fasting and then let’s say you work out and you take some
branched chain amino acids right before the workout during your fast you will
break your fast because that would stimulate glucose or collagen or bone
broth those will actually increase insulin now the two things that don’t
seem to have that much effect on insulin our fats and fiber fiber has a zero
effect on insulin so when you’re consuming leafy greens for example that
are very high in fiber low in sugar that will have a very minimal effect on
insulin but on the flip side of that anything that you eat in general of any
significance if it has a certain quantity of calories can stimulate
insulin to a certain degree so that being said let’s just go through the
things that you could consume that will have a minimal effect on your ability to
stay in ketosis and do your fast now number one MCT oil this is very very
good especially when you’re starting out especially in the morning maybe to put
in your coffee because MCT oil will turn into ketones very very fast and then
your brain can run on the ketones your heart can run on the ketones
you’re you can use these ketones as energy and MCT oil will allow you to go
longer without getting hungry so that would be number one number two coffee
coffee does not have a lot of calories and it doesn’t seem to break the fast
very much so coffee would be okay as long as you don’t put sugar in it now
if you add an alternative sweetener maybe a little erythritol or stevia
or a monk fruit that would be totally fine but let’s say for example you want
to add whole cream so a little bit of whole cream will have a very minor
effect and I wouldn’t worry about it too much so coffee can help you
fast longer it can reduce hunger number three exogenous ketones another name
for this would be ketone salts so let’s say for example you’re fasting and you
feel tired or you have brain fog you can basically just take ketones and they go
into your blood and then your brain will pick it up because if the brain has a
choice between glucose or ketones it’ll always pick ketones but if your body has
not adapted yet and you haven’t generated the ketones you can end up
with low blood sugar and you might feel kind of funky and tired but if you
provide the ketones for the brain it will suck them up and use them for brain
energy so this could help you feel better while you’re fasting especially
with brain fatigue or lethargy number four tea drinking tea can greatly help
you go longer when you fast especially with the phytonutrients in the herbs
that make up the tea number five electrolytes by taking certain minerals
and realize there’s hardly any calories in here unless you’re getting the wrong
type of electrolytes that has a glucose in it which we never recommend but the
minerals the trace minerals and electrolytes will actually help your
blood sugars and help your energy of your muscles and it just makes it easier
to do fasting number six probiotics probiotics are healthy bacteria that it
can help stabilize blood sugars alright number seven B vitamins B vitamins will
help insulin resistance it will give you energy
so these B vitamins are needed at the cellular level especially when you’re
doing fasting or ketosis all right apple cider vinegar has a great effect on your
blood sugars and it can allow you to go a lot longer without eating now if
you’re doing kombucha tea a lot of times they have a bit too much sugar in that
product so you want to read the labels if you find one with two grams that
might be okay but even two grams could be too much for some people so it
really depends on your metabolism but I will say that generally
speaking this is lower amounts of sugar than other types of tea and it has a
good probiotic and a good acid to help you go longer especially at night let’s
say your you want a replacement for beer or wine or champagne this has a similar
texture and carbonation that can act as a substitute number nine fiber fiber
does not stimulate insulin and it’s food for your microbes and the microbes
actually make butyric acid which is actually kind of in the family of
ketones and that can help stabilize your blood sugars and improve insulin
resistance so if you were to do a concentrated green fiber or a wheatgrass
juice powder that usually should be totally okay because you get the
nutrients from it and if you’re doing a greens drink with fiber the fiber
actually can act as food for your microbes so that would be something that
could enhance things because you’re it’s almost like you’re consuming a
dehydrated form of a vegetable and you can even feel more satisfied with that
all right number 10 erythritol so you can put that in your coffee but erythritol has a zero effect on the glycemic index so it gets absorbed in
the small intestine and it gets in the blood and it gets pushed out the kidneys
unchanged so it’s a sweetener so if you were to add that with the tea or the
coffee whatever that would be fine or stevia or monk food these three
sweeteners do not have hardly any effects on your blood sugar’s number 11
lemon juice now there is a little bit of carb
in lemon juice but a little lemon juice in your water is totally fine and for
the most part it really won’t break your fast for more than a minute okay but it
can actually help reduce the risk of kidney stones and even gout or high
levels of uric acid all right number 12 amino acid blend so protein in general
will stimulate insulin but there are certain blends of amino acids like the
keto essential amino acids that have an effect of not providing fuel for the
body but mainly for recovery so straight amino acid blend you can have a great
effect right after you workout to give you certain amino acids without giving
you that insulin spike if you want more information I put a link down below all
right number 13 is sea salt this is very very important I recommend the Himalayan
pink sea salt that would be something that I really like but sea salt actually
can make you actually feel stronger your muscles it can help with your energy
level because if you’re deficient in salt you can have like the keto flu or a
keto fatigue so this could give you more energy and lastly number 14 is just
water now not just recommending drinking massive amounts of water like gallons to
somehow satisfy you but I will say that when you’re doing fasting if you’re a
stone former and you develop kidney stones you may find that your uric acid
goes up and potentially you could form a uric acid stone but if you’re drinking
enough water I’m talking about 2 and 2.5 liters per day you’re gonna pretty much
dilute the urine so you’re not gonna form a kidney stone so drinking more
water can help you now when you are doing fasting you’re gonna find that
you’re gonna get a fluctuation in hormones and when you get this
fluctuation you may go through a little bit of hunger at certain points
especially in the morning at 8 o’clock when you have a little spike of cortisol
and you might feel like you need to eat if you just ignore that
transient hunger that will go away in most cases but if it persists then go
ahead and eat but if you’re going through a little wave of I’m a little
hungry and all of a sudden iit goes away just realize that is just a hormonal flux and
you just want to ignore it and push through that and go a little bit longer
alright thanks for watching so I wanted to say thank you so much for watching
my videos I really really appreciate it now if you have benefited from my
information or videos and want to share it with the world
I would love to have you write up a success story so click the link down
below fill it out and let’s let people know the benefits of healthy keto and intermittent fasting
