Hi, Bobbie... I understand the confusion. It took me awhile to get a full understanding. This series of articles are what made it clear in my own mind:

Ketogenesis, Measuring Ketones, and Burning Fat vs Being in Ketosis
www.tuitnutrition.com/2017/09/measur
in
g-ketones.html


Producing ketones is not the same as being able to burn them for fuel. Everyone will produce ketones if they don't eat for an extended period (this period varies depending on how metabolically compromised you are), but until you can actually burn them as fuel, you are not adapted (takes time to develop the enzymatic mechanisms to burn ketones for fuel). Fasting while being able to burn ketones as fuel *feels* very different... at this point fasting becomes easy and energizing.

Don't get me wrong... I believe fasting is good/healing no matter what. If you've never fasted and simply manage to not eat between meals for the first month you are already changing your metabolism for the good.

Fasting is also an important factor in becoming fat-adapted, and the first step to fasting effectively is create clearly defined fasting and feeding windows. After you can go a month without eating between meals, maybe you want to try having only two meals a day...12-16 hours fasted with an 8-12 hour eating window. When this is effortless, start extending your fasting time and shortening your eating window until you're down to one meal a day. Once you're at one meal a day, try a 36-hour fast. Your body will have been slowly adapting to burning fat over this whole time. How quickly you've been able to move through this process will depend on how easily your body is adapting to burning fat/ketones as fuel.

Extended fasting (anything over 36 hours) is where I believe it's easier and the benefits are maximized if a body is already fat-adapted.

I think the mistake most people make with fasting is pushing the body too hard, too fast. They decide they want the benefits that can be found after fasting for 72 hours so they set the clock and give it a try. When they're not successful, they give up, rather than considering that perhaps they need to approach it differently.

The body needs time to learn how to burn fat for fuel, and every body will have a different time-line for this, based on many factors. How long you fast should never be according to the clock, or because of a perceived goal. If/how long you fast should be about reading your body and responding to it.

If you feel well, energized and calm, keep fasting. If you feel hungry, anxious, and lacking in energy you should eat. If you follow this, and listen to your body, you will slowly become fat-adapted (it took me longer than the average person to become fat-adapted because my insulin resistance was so high, and my liver function was impaired... not mention that my hormones were completely out of balance). However, you can also help this process along by eating a ketogenic diet in conjunction with fasting. The fewer carbs you eat, the more quickly you fat-adapt. It also took me longer to get into and stay in ketosis than the average person... same reasons as above.


Just for clarity sake, my tracker has never been an accurate representation of my weight at any given point on my journey. This explains, and this is also the philosophy that has kept me moving forward no matter what:

As for the specifics of my weight loss journey, I'm pretty much an open book... my blog records every detail of my journey, the good, bad and the ugly, LOL.

I started on SparkPeople in 2008 and had very little initial success despite following all of the 'rules' which is what led me to search for and understand less conventional perspectives on weight loss. Dr. Fung and the Obesity Code was my true turning point. I've also had a lot of life upheavals that have contributed to a journey slower than most.

Here are the most relevant references to my journey with resources and additional links. Read as much, or as little, as you like!

Dr. Jason Fung: "Holy consensus, Batman. With so many 'experts' from Michelle Obama to the USDA to virtually all of the medical professionals (including doctors and dieticians) agreeing that 'Eat Less, Move More' is the way to go, you might think that it is 100% unquestionably true. But here's a queer thought... if we all agree that we know the cure for obesity, and we've spent billions on educations and programs - why are we getting fatter? In other words, why does this 'cure' suck so bad?

RAMONA, I have just recently been hearing the phrases keto-adapted or fat-adapted. I'm having trouble getting my head wrapped around them. It's 1:30 AM and I need to go to bed and ponder this. I'm just not comprehending well at this time of day. I read about fat-adapted recently and thought I had it straight in my mind but for the life of me, I'm just not pulling it back up.

I still have so much to learn about this Keto/IF lifestyle. I'm so amazed at the weight loss you have accomplished. Congratulations on your 115 pounds loss. You have done what a lot of us are striving to do. I would love it if you would tell us when you started your journey and anything else you would care to share with us.

Good knight for now. (((Hugs))) Bobbie

Excellent video...THANK YOU! This video very much reflects my experience with long-term IF and extended fasting beyond 72 hours.

I would also remind people that fasting as a glucose burner is a very different experience than is fasting as a fat-burner. All of my solid benefits came AFTER I became keto-adapted (ate ketogenically for 2-3 months). I don't recommend extended fasting (over 36 hours) until you consistently feel well on shorter fasts. I didn't start any extended fasts over 36 hours until I had been successfully and comfortably fasting for over six months.

Allow your body to lead your healing process and tell when you are ready to extend your fasting times.

Very Important to really watch.

Top Reasons Apple Cider Vinegar Works With Fasting For Weight Loss & Health

Some of the things I do with Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV):

1) After my coffee! I drink my WATER out of a Yetti (3 1/2 cups) every day and add 1 to 2 teaspoons (tsp) of Braggs ACV with 1/2 tsp of Pyure Organic Stevia Blend Sweetener (I buy at Wal Mart).
I drink at least 4 Yetti (I'm Worth It) cups a day. That's about 6 to 8 tsp of ACV. How many tsp are in a tablespoon (tbs)?

2) I make a salad dressing with a large Tbs of Mayonnaise, a large Tbs of Sour Cream (or plain yogurt), and thin it with ACV (a couple of splashes) and any spices I feel like having. Mix it all up and pour the whole thing on a real big salad with my protein of choice.

Do you have any other ways you like to use ACV?

(((Hugs))) Bobbie

I find this so interesting: Especially in regard to what the world is enduring with COVID-19.

Fasting has a number of benefits. This is exactly why the Ketogenic diet is so popular right now. It turns out, our body is meant to burn fat! If we are constantly eating, we’re constantly supplying our body with glycogen, this is the body’s main fuel source for most people. When these reserves run out, the body begins to run off ketones, which has a number of health benefits, including destroying cancer. Many people with cancer today are having success with the ketogenic diet and fasting as a treatment for cancer. There is no shortage of studies of what fasting does to cancer cells combined with chemotherapy treatment, but it’s quite odd how there have been no studies or clinical trials for fasting, without the chemotherapy treatment…

Studies have also shown prolonged fasts have the ability to regenerate the entire immune system, repair damaged DNA, and more. It severely limits the process of age-related diseases and prolongs life in a variety of ways.
