I was wondering, if you are intermittent fasting and eating Keto, do you have to get all your calories in for the day in two meals (if I choose to eat twice that day) or one meal (if I choose to only eat once that day)? I’m concerned about starvation mode by not eating enough when I’m not fasting. Does this matter?
I just came off a 7 day fast (felt horrible didn’t have the mental focus and energy everyone says despite being in ketosis. However, once I ate a keto meal (although my stomach hurt) I felt a ton better a few hours later with energy and focus. I’m still in ketosis (using blood ketone monitor) and one thing I did today was I worked out at Orange Theory and I had ZERO endurance. Has anyone experienced this? Shouldn’t you still be able to workout hard for hour and eat keto and be in ketosis? If anyone has any experience with this I’d love to hear from you.
