It sounds like things are working out well with this trainer. Can't wait to get to fasted workouts; that sounds very satisfying.

T8u9: Seriously? Where does the energy come from - fat storage, protein?

Yes, seriously. I'm doing this for (purported!) even energy and mental clarity. Hoping that can come from consuming enough fats and fat-burning instead of glucose reliance? Had bad crash today after working out, perhaps from having dessert (pork rinds and low-net-carb chocolate) with breakfast prior to workout. Sounds like crashes don't happen to fat-adapted people who exercise in fasted state. I have a long way to go.

Yes Perks, that is why Keto is so freaking amazing-- you very efficiently have an unlimited supply of energy in the form of fat stores. --once you are adapted you can fast, work out and still have a calm feeling of being satisfied with zero hunger. There is nothing else like it. It takes a while for the body to fully adapt but OMG is it worth it. You end up having the appetite of a naturally skinny person-- you get to feel what the other half has been feeling all their lives I imagine. I have ZERO desire to eat cheat foods. I'm guessing it took me 6 months to feel this way but what is weird is that exercising often curbs my appetite further.

T8U9 and Bluecoaster: Thanks for the real life example here. It is better than just reading in books etc.

I'm not yet clear on how to achieve this while maintaining. Fat intake, I hope! From a preparedness perspective, it also seems much better to be able to live well on fats than have the swings that, for me, seem inherent in glucose reliance. Unlikely scenario, perhaps, but highlighted for me during recent storms news.

T8U9- one day (on your body's clock) it will just start to change- as long as you keep the carbs low and the fats high enough to keep you satisfied, at one point you will forget to prepare a meal, or find yourself procrastinating to make the meal, then a few days in a row etc. And then you will realize that this is how intermittent fasting can become a reality with no effort. The freedom of only having to eat 2 meals is glorious. 😊

Interesting, I have had two meals by accident but I forced a third meal because I thought I was supposed to eat three meals a day. The mind is always working with assumptions, thoughts and wants. Some are great and some are just baggage!

Perks- it depends. If your body is always running off of glucose, you may very well need that 3rd meal- it's so individual. However, if you are in ketosis and being fueled by ketones, and you don't feel hunger, there is no need to eat a scheduled meal. Hope that helps.
