Vegan and Keto

0
0

I have been in Keto (I use the GKI) with intermittent fasting, since the 1st of January and have lost 40 pounds. I have come out of it a couple times because I am vegan who is allergic to eggs and gets what I call a dairy cough anytime I have dairy and sometimes I feel extremely restricted in what I can eat. I have struggled to stay keto but have over 60 more pounds to lose. Last week I went out of keto so I could eat some beans and lentils for other protein sources and have not gone back to keto yet. I need help with what to eat. I cannot eat flesh (no fish, no meat, poultry etc for over 40 years) but recently I have compromised and eaten bone broth, Collegen peptides and beef Liver in a capsule (all grass-fed, pasture raised etc…) and of course I take a very high-quality multi-vitamin.  I have a genetic makeup that predisposes me to many cancers but specifically breast cancer and also Alzheimers. So I honestly would like to find a ketogenic way to live with a plant-based diet but I need more resources. Also, Valter Longo says we should not fast 13 hours or longer (I am not sure why) but with intermittent fasting, I usually fast 16 -18 hours daily. Should I stop doing this?

 

THANK YOU!!!

Have you tried organic dairy? I have some foods that I’m ok with in organic form, but in regular form it causes issues for me (hives, chest pain, etc).  So it has more to do with the other things, and not the food itself.  Also, raw A2 dairy is often much easier on people.  So raw dairy from Jersey Cow/Guernsey Cow/Goats is often less inflammatory and raw and non-homogenized doesn’t affect the GI tract as much.  But otherwise, there are lots ways for you to get protein and fat from plant based foods – chia and flax seeds are considered complete proteins.  Full fat coconut milk is definitely a good choice.  Nuts, especially macadamia and walnuts have lots of goo healthy fat and protein.  Avocados and olives are good choices along with their oils.

I don’t know who Valter is, but you can definitely fast for 16-18 hours per day.  If it feels ok for you, it is.  Many many people have a feeding window the same as yours.  If it’s painful, don’t do it.
