I have an opportunity to do an extended fast but I’m not sure now is the right time. I currently have almost no food in the house that fits into my lifestyle. I’m still on my period and the pain meds so I have intense food cravings.
I know dropping a significant amount of weight would be a great start to reducing my back pain and and the pressure on my herniated disks. However, I’m not sure I could do a serious fast while taking the prescription narcotics for my pain. I loathe needing pain medication as a crutch to get through even the easiest of days.
I am on a vegetarian keto diet and was doing OMAD For over a month until PMS and pain meds. I was also able to do several 40+ hour long fasts. The pros and cons of doing an extended fast even if only for 5-7 days is about even. Any advice? I’d appreciate help! Thanks
