Doing it all backwards – Fasting to Keto?

It seems most get into Keto first and then slowly adapt to fasting. I’m doing it all backwards.

I’ve gone from experimenting with fasting to being, what I’d like to think is, a real “faster” over the last two years, but I’ve never really gotten into Keto. Sure, I have the strips. Yes, they’ve turned pink a few times for a few days, but I wasn’t really in a place where I was ready to go all-in on the fat-heavy diet.

3. Everyone needs gentle love and attention from their Supreme Ruler.

There just don’t seem to be enough blogs in the world, so I thought I’d start one.

To be serious, I’ve gotten very into fasting in the last two years and I want to share my experience, learn from others and help contribute to this growing community.

The “Fast 30” Challenge

“That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of!” – I believe were my exact words when I first heard about Intermittent Fasting (IF). My thinking being that weight loss is a simple formula…
