Fasting - I got through my first 3 fasts!

Three things really helped: 

1) I read a Meagan Ramos podcast where she talked about going through chemo, and then subsequently treating fasting like a treatment rather than a diet. "I wouldn't miss a chemo session to have lunch with my girlfriends!"

2) In the same podcast Meagan suggested a bit of non-sugar pickle juice as a substitute for bone broth on the day. This if feeling like electrolytes are out of balance, or just generally miserable.  It is easy to stomach and kept me feeling pumped up throughout the day.

3) I saw a youtube video with a Registered Dietician going through fasting.  She suggested an electrolyte water, which kept me hydrated without worrying too much about it.
