Great stuff! Keep us updated (and not just for my sake—it also helps other people to know that they can succeed!) Snacks Hi! I’m on Day 6 of the test and today, I went running for the first time since beginning the test. It was awful. My pace at MAF was 3+ minutes slower (granted it was also a little humid) than normal. I could barely “run” on flat pavement for 2-3 minutes before hitting my MAF HR. And even then, when I slowed to a walk my HR was much slower to come back down. Is this just my body getting used to burning fat? Does it get better?
8 OF 35 The 7 Benefits of Fasting – Dr. Jason Fung • 1 cup cucumber slices I have now been training MAF for 5 weeks and eating basically no processed carbs and sugar at all. I have lost 9kg (down from 94Kg to 85Kg) and I was fairly lean as it was (191-192cm tall). However I am really enjoying being lighter and have enjoyed the reduction in body fat. I can see I was storing too much fat on my body even if it was not that obvious and I am working hard on getting my body to try and burn fat as its primary fuel. I never have had any issues with carb intolerance and could eat plenty and feel ok. My questions relate to does MAF promote never eating any carbs again (besides vegetables and fruit), and ideally just increase my level of ketosis. I ask because today for the first time I really hit the wall on a 2 hour training ride. Left on an empty stomach at 6am and didn’t eat till 9am after I got to work , showered and got settled at my desk (standing desk). I only drank water the whole ride and I just could feel my legs were completely drained of energy and my HR was going much higher on flat segments than it usually would.

Obviously, it’s still possible to lose weight on any diet – just eat fewer calories than you burn, right? The problem with this simplistic advice is that it ignores the elephant in the room: Hunger. Most people don’t like to “just eat less”, i.e. being hungry forever. That’s dieting for masochists. Sooner or later a normal person will give up and eat, hence the prevalence of “yo-yo dieting”.
Those symptoms clear up within a few days of starting the test. Best of luck with it!
Kate says: No Drink water a half hour before meals. One study showed that drinking water a half hour before meals increased weight loss by 44% over 3 months (20). I’m very sorry for the confusion. I was wrong about saying that butternut squash is not allowed. It in fact IS allowed. I’ll go back and change previous comments.

"Without [exercise], only a portion of your weight loss is from fat — you're also stripping away muscle and bone density. Since working out stimulates growth of those metabolic tissues, losing weight through exercise means you're burning mostly fat," Olson explained. "The number on the scale may not sound as impressive, but because muscle takes up less space than fat does, you look smaller and your clothes fit better."
September 8, 2016 at 6:49 pm Dozens of scientific studies have tied diets high in vegetables— especially greens— to better health outcomes, including weight loss and a decreased risk of a handful of chronic diseases. Veggies like watercress, spinach, chives, and collard greens all rank highly on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's list of "powerhouse foods," so find a few you like, and start adding them to your plate.

Carbo loading generally speaking isn’t a good idea (there’s plenty of research to say that it doesn’t do much).
134-151 I feel much better in many respects and I was already pretty healthy and careful about those things. I’ve just started the 2 week test (it’s day 2 currently), and am primarily interested in the potential benefits of “slowing down to speed up” in my marathon training program. I’ve read The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing and loved it. But my question is: while on long training runs of 10 miles+, what if any fueling options do you recommend during the 2-week test?
Thanks for your continued interest. Two-week test recipes will be available with the iOS app, which is currently in development.
If the headache isn’t too annoying or worrisome, stay with it. If not, stop it. Some possible causes of a headache while on a low-carb diet are dehydration and too much high-intensity training or stress. Since stored carbs release water when burned, a period of low-carb eating, where fewer carbs are burned, means that less water is released into the bloodstream as usual. So it’s usually necessary to drink water (to thirst) at more regular intervals than usual. And in both high-intensity training and stress, the body uses a greater percentage of sugar, which means that sugar runs out more quickly than usual, and the brain starts having a hard time being fueled. When you eat low-carb but don’t do things that significantly elevate your rates of sugar usage, the brain has no problem fueling itself with the sugar that the liver can produce. I mention this because headaches are a typical response to the brain having to fight with the body for fuel.
Apart from those situations, there is only one remaining important tip: Physical activity June 20, 2017 at 8:51 am

When training a lot, it’s perfectly fine to increase the proportions of carbohydrates in the diet. Although you probably did go into ketosis, the body has to develop its abilities to produce ketones. It’s not going to produce them in a high volume (or develop the machinery to burn them) if you don’t train that in particular.

Your privacy is important to us. Thanks for your comment. For liability reasons, we can’t give direct recommendations on a medical issue.
