Thanks for bumping the Fasting thread caronl !!
Merry, I have never had bone broth , cream or anything but water( with a few flakes of Malden or Himalayan salt) , green tea or black coffee during my fasts, whether they be the 24 h or longer ones. Birdleg’s most recent one was 6h and neither Birdy or myself had more than those drinks.
I think you are wise to begin with a 24 h fast. I found that easy to manage very early on as I was out of the house all day and worked through my lunch hour. Then I just gradually built up and definitely found it easier as I continued. This Week we both said that we could have continued after our 66 hours ..we didn’t feel hungry.
I have also read that Jason Fung mentions adding a bit of cream to coffee.I think it was a way of saying it could help people keep going with their fast but I have never felt the need. Essie mentions hot pepper brine and bone broth earlier on in this thread.
I could never have imagined saying this just a year ago as I would have been so fearful of it but I love fasting!
