Iceberg lettuce shortage

The Iceberg Lettuce Shortage Is More Blessing Than Curse

People are losing their minds over the Iceberg Lettuce shortage. Storms in Spain have caused stock shortages in many UK supermarkets for a few different vegetables and Iceberg Lettuce seems to be one of the worst affected.   Eating a keto diet plan involves a generous amount of leafy green vegetables.

7 Day Fast – My Experience (Part 1)

My fasting experience to date:   This attempt will be my 3rd fast. Besides using intermittent fasting on a daily basis, my first fast was a 72 hour fast. Inspired by the powerful results of the fast, I decided just over a month ago, to give a 96 hour fast a try. Regrettably, I didn't record this experience in a blog, but those of you who follow me on social media will have read my tweet updates! By day 3 the extreme euphoria I felt was incredible.

72 hour fast means no food

72 Hour Fast – My Experience

After many months of waiting to try a 72 hour fast, this week I finally got the chance to push my body to a new limit that it has never reached before. Unable to attempt an extended fast previously as i was breastfeeding my daughter, i made the decision to wait until feeding had finished, in case it affected milk production.   Listening to a series of podcasts that discussed the therapeutic benefits of cycling periods of extended fasting into a ketogenic lifestyle made me curious - a few days of no food (72 hour fast) could help to reset my immune...
