What are some suggestions for intermittent fast breakfasts? PHD shows a picture of coffee and creme but I don't drink coffee. It also mentions non-starch veggies. Protein is off limits as well. Here's what I've come up with:
Guacamole w/cabbage chips
Celery and nut butter
Roasted veggies (probably broccoli and cauliflower)
I think that the PHD utilized a protein fast in order to trigger autophagy.
So leafy greens (consisting of mostly soluble fiber, which is converted in fat through bacteria) and short/medium-chain fats are allowed to appease hunger and speed up the breakdown of ketone bodies while still triggering autophagy.
Last week in An Anti-Cancer Diet (Sep 28, 2011), I recommended that cancer patients eat 400 to 600 carb calories per day, but combine it with a program of daily intermittent fasting plus longer “ketogenic fasts” and periods of ketogenic dieting or low-protein dieting to promote autophagy.
