During the fast, I consume organic coffee, black, herbal teas, and about 500 mls of homemade bone broth as two “meals” during the first 24 hours (Wed). And water or bubbly water. On chemo morning, I have coffee at the hotel, then fill my thermos for the clinic. Mid morning, my companion will go refill my thermos with black coffee at the coffee shop and I will continue to sip on that, plus water. Mid afternoon, I will get a thermos of herbal tea. That will usually get me through to the evening – more tea. Post-chemo, I feel rather blah, so staying with coffee, tea and water for another 24 hours is no real hardship. But I feel well enough to get out of my recliner and cook dinner on Friday night, not the usual post-chemo reaction.
During the rest of the 3 week cycle, I maintain a ketogenic diet with lots of vegetables, meats, eggs, olive oil, butter, and several varieties of homemade psyllium-containing keto breads (1-2 g carb/slice). I maintain mild ketosis – 0.3-0.6 usually.
It’s working for me!
