I did a pretty long fast most of yesterday and into today -- about 20 hours I think. When breaking a fast, what is best? I'm craving carbs like sweet potato and nuts, but other, fattier foods sound tasty too. I guess anything sounds tasty. But like I said, if I want to break my fast, what is the best profile of macronutrients, etc?
I'm on ADF (alternate day fasting) right now so I go about 40 hours of water-fast. I usually break mine with coffee that has cream and honey added.
I agree with thhq and Wayne that at the 20-hour point you can pretty much do what you want. It's what you're hungry for and what goes down best. In my case, once I have adulterated coffee to sip I'm not really hungry for solid food so I usually don't eat a meal until the 44-48 hour mark. But then I eat meals arranged exactly the same as when I was eating every day.
