An experiment within an experiment

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas I'm doing Fast-5.

Fast-5 was designed by Dr Bert Herring. It's a form of intermittent fasting. You fast for 19 hours a day, then your "eating window" opens for 5 hours. Since becoming fat adapted, I can go fairly painlessly without food for 19 hours. My eating window will be 2-7pm.

I'm curious to see how daily fasting will impact my ketone numbers. I'll take my readings around 2pm, before my first food of the day. I'm also going to do glucose readings at that time.

Today is Day 1, fasting for 19 hours will be super easy. I'm still full from Thanksgiving!
