My family recently returned from vacation, so my work week was particularly stressful. Also, because of all of our vacation fun, I was a bit low on funds this week. Normally, this kind of week would lead me to choose cheap, unhealthy foods. It would be totally normal for me to stress eat and gain wait.
What is spontaneous fasting? It's the ability to skip a meal and to be completely okay. If this sounds completely crazy to you, let me explain....
This all changed when I became fully keto-adapted. At a certain point, I realized that I wasn't hungry and I didn't need to eat my next scheduled meal. Sometimes, I would still try to eat out of habit, but I definitely didn't eat as much. Other times, I would just skip a meal. As I am writing this right now, it is 3:00PM and I haven't eaten lunch yet. I had breakfast at 9:00AM and I am simply having a cup of coffee for lunch. I feel no hunger whatsoever.
This is not always the case, but It happens a lot and it requires little or no "will power" on my part. This is just one of the benefits of the Ketogenic diet. If you have ever had a problem with overeating, you may find that this is a great plan for you.
Even though I had a "bad week", I was able to manage it better on this diet.

I haven't been perfect, but I've stuck to the plan 95% of the time and I have been careful to stay in ketosis for most of these 46 days. Because I am still seeing great results, I will continue with my current plan and I don't plan on changing anything at the moment.
