Do you guys that do a prolonged fast , say over 24 hours, follow a low carb/keto type diet?
I did a 72 hour fast and trained during it. This is what I did:Can anybody speak to their experience with training during extended fasts? A friend recently turned me on to Cole Robinson and the Snake Diet and it's one of the more novel pieces of media and entertainment I've come across.
I am a big fan of Thomas Delauer's Youtube content and he is a big believer in the power of extended fasting as a tool. I am just wondering if anyone in this forum has played around with fasts in the 36-72hour range while using SF training, and if there are any personal rules of thumb you have followed or found successful?
I'm finishing day 2 of my first 72 hour fast. So far so good, I was only hungry today before dinner, aside from that all good. I did A+A snatches this morning, and plan on training tomorrow as well.
A few questions to the more experienced ones on fasting:
- A good book about fasting you recommend?
- I've been drinking coffee and tea. Is there any benefit in not drinking these?
- I've also put some sea salt grains in my mouth, not much but some. Should I avoid this?
