Full day of eating keto low carb with perfect MACROS at the end! I use the carb manager app to track breakfast, lunch, and dinner and show you at the end of the video where exactly everything landed.
When it comes to only having one meal a day (OMAD) it seems simple. But how about when you do it for an extended period of time?
I have to say that while this intense type of intermittent fasting can have huge benefits there are also downers. In this video I share my story and what I learned. It wasn’t always easy but hey, most good things aren’t right?
Have you tried the OMAD diet? What helped you achieve your goals with it? Did you plan your one meal each day? How organized did you need to be?
I did a 60 hour keto fast! Yeah you read that correctly, sixty hours. But here’s the thing, I skipped the food but I still took in liquids. I drank bone broths (savory and sweet), ketones, and ketogenic teas (chocolate included!).
Why? The 60 Hour Keto Reboot that I did is a metabolic reboot. It gave my system time to rest, recharge, get rid of carb cravings, and repair damaged cells. I went into deep ketosis and burned stored fat, reduced inflammation and bloating, and even lost a little over 2 pounds! Crazy right?!
Personally, I took this challenge on because I had been eating more carbs lately and really wanted to detox from that and reduce inflammation. I knew it would clear up my skin as well and that was a huge bonus. My body started to feel like it was a website that was lagging and just couldn’t load right, so I knew it was time to jump in and do something.
I went through some carb detox because I haven’t been strict keto lately and my body was screaming for carbs. I learned a lot this time around. I learned about mental strength, endurance, eating habits, and how to do more with little. I documented the whole thing so you can watch it for yourself.
Interested in trying the 60 hour keto fast for yourself? The best part about trying it is that you don’t do it alone. When you grab the kit you also get access to the Facebook community with thousands of other people doing it with you. You receive encouragement and guidance from coaches and doctors, plus you get to meet friends with similar goals. The community around it is probably one of my favorite things.
The metabolic reboot that I did is only offered once a month because of the way the community rallies around it each month. At the time of posting this, the reboot is actually available! You can grab it for the next couple days or until sold out here: KETO REBOOT
What is intermittent fasting (IF)? Before starting a keto lifestyle the only fasting I had ever experienced or really known about was linked to my faith. I fasted at certain times or certain meals and instead of spending time eating I spent that time praying or focused on God. This is different. Although, to be honest, you can absolutely make the two work together if you wanted, which is super cool. (Let’s chat about it)
The most basic IF is 16:8. You don’t eat for 16 hours, but then you consume all your daily calories and macros within 8 hours. So for example you may stop eating at 8pm and then not eat again until after 12pm. You would then consume all your food for the day from 12pm-8pm. That’s the eight hour window. Some people adjust these times and fast for a longer amount but 16:8 is the most basic concept.
Why? There are so many benefits to IF! My favorite one? It’s linked to living longer! Yup, longevity! I’ll take that. Your body remains in ketosis without needing to burn the food you’re eating for 16 hours, giving it time to burn more stored fat. Check out this video for some more info on intermittent fasting.
PRO TIP: Anything over 50 calories will kick you out of your fast. Black coffee is great, but watch out for any extras.
