    On non fasting days, you can incorporate any keto/low carb recipe you choose.

    Here is a link to our keto recipes.

    Would love to start fasting for health.can u drink bp coffee while fasting and not mess up the ketosis process? Ty, for your help. I so much enjoy Dr. Fung, such an excellent Dr.I had the sleeve surgery to no avail.I believe Dr. Fung's approach to obesity is awesome.I am still sick after all of that surgery. It has been 4yrs.after the surgery.I will have success with Dr.Fung's approach to combat obesity.

    Good luck Valerie. You are in the right place. Just read everything you can on here from Dr Fung. You can do whatever you like if it works for you at your particular place in time. If I were you, I would get some MCT oil, some cream and some butter to stick in your coffee(cause it’s delicious) and do some fat fasts as Dr Fung outline in a recent interview on

    I wanted to do keto along with 5:2 fasting (no food at all on fasting days) but on my fasting day at hour 27 my blood sugar went under 40! I wasn't hungry but I felt very bad and I ate 300g chocolate because I felt SO under sugared. What did I do wrong? I didn't take salt, can this be the cause? Or should I get fat-adapted BEFORE starting this longer fasts. I do omad for 2 month now

    Rebekka, #1, if you are on any medication you MUST work with your doctor to adjust medication dosage as necessary.

    #2, Yes, getting fat adapted may help with the longer fasts. Not everyone responds well to fasting. If you are not on medication and this happens again, you may wish to stick with shorter fasting periods.

    Sounds a bit drastic and extreme. Perhaps go gradually to avoid 300g of chocolate. Hope you find a happy medium as it's not a competition.
