A Day In The Life of Keto Diet and Intermittent Fasting
I started fasting the night before, so I woke up on hour 18 of my fast. My son and I got ready for the day and headed out to our local strawberry patch to pick some fresh and natural berries! It was especially hot that morning, so I made sure to pack a lot of ice cold sparkling water to help me stay hydrated! Sparkling water also serves as a great appetite suppressant, which helped me avoid hunger through the morning.
After leaving the strawberry patch, we were off to the grocery store to grab some ingredients for our delicious Keto lunch! By this point in the day I was feeling the effects of my fasting, so I put a few flakes of my Maldon’s Sea Salt under my tongue to give me the electrolytes and boost I needed to make it through my 24 hour fast. I picked up some beef brisket burgers and mixed salad greens from the store, then headed home and fired up my grill.
By this time, I had completed my 24 hour fast, so it was time to make my meal to break it. I started by seasoning up my burgers and throwing them on the grill. Next, I washed and chopped up some broccoli and my salad greens, then used my homemade vinegar/avocado oil salad dressing to top it off. Once the burgers were done, my son and I enjoyed our beautiful Keto meal.

After enjoying our lunch and some quality time with my son, I began to meal prep a Keto fish dinner. First, I let my fish marinade for an hour, then baked it for about 10 minutes. I like to bake it in aluminum foil to avoid a smelly cleanup.
- 5 tablespoons of Avocado Oil (you can substitute with olive oil or butter if you don’t have any available)
- 3 tablespoons of Garlic
- 2 tablespoons of Lime or Lemon Juice
- Pinch of Pink Salt
Earlier in the day I received a product I had ordered in the mail, so I ended my day by putting my son to bed, then running downstairs to open my new package like a child on Christmas morning. I tore open the package and unboxed my brand new AquaFizz SodaStream! As I mentioned earlier, I love to drink sparkling water to help me through my fast, so the SodaStream allows me to save money and make my own at home. I opted for the AquaFizz model because it uses glass bottles, rather than plastic, and significantly reduces my waste.
