In this video, I talk about refeeding after prolonged fasting. If you’re on a longer fast—I’m talking about 4-7+ days, not 2 days—there’s a rare situation that can occur called refeeding syndrome.
What happens is that your body experiences a shift of nutrients from the blood to the cells — this occurs when you have nutrient deficiencies already before you begin your fast.
Then, fasting makes the situation worse because you aren’t getting any nutrients. Keep in mind that if you have known vitamin deficiencies, you should not do prolonged fasting.
What I recommend is to have vitamin supplements, electrolytes, and sea salt during your fast to make up for deficiencies. This won’t break your fast.
How to refeed after prolonged fasting:
When you do break your fast with food, don’t have carbohydrates, sugars, and or any other non-keto-friendly foods. These can actually further deplete your nutrients and create a big problem. Instead, break your fast slowly with keto-friendly foods.
