ADF, Vegan Keto & Mindfulness for maximum autophagy

There are 2 questions l always get when l tell about my ADF and vegan keto journey. One of them is "how do you do it!" (with the exclamation mark) And the other one is "how do you do it?" (with the question mark) Let me take the first question first Its easy peasy for me to do ADF and vegan keto because the price is too high if l dont!Read here and here and here In my opinion there is no choice! Secondly.Literally.. this is how l do it: The ADF I fast on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. So…

Powerful Impact of Meditation

I feel powerful!Not with the energetic meaning of the word but literally: as in fierce! A few months ago my brother invited me on a 3 week vegan yoga retreat to Koh Phangan in Thailand. Every morning we did meditation and morning yoga and every morning we were asked to set the purpose with the training. For me it was the same purpose every single morning: "I am powerful" Again... not in the energetic meaning of the word, but literrally: as in strong, fierce.I wasn't. Far from.I have never been so physical weak as l am now. At that point…

If you are not using…

7 Day Water Fast & 4 Day Re-Feed

I didnt plan to do a full week of only drinking water!It just happened. Now l know you might thing that such a thing "just doesnt happen" but it actually does when you leave Ego out of your fasts and let the body run the show. Just like l previously had intensions of doing a 140h fast and ended up stopping at 110h - you can read about what happened here - then because l am doing this for my body and not to strengthen my Ego it can not ever be a failure.There is no quitting in water fasting.…

I don´t eat meat because I lack protein!

As you might know l got admitted to the hospital this Tuesday* due to an Addison crisis.. thats another story. However, when l was there they made an arterial blood sample that shows that l have low albumin levels. l wasnt surprised about that since l havent been eating enough for a very long time. Besides that, both my carb metabolism, my fat metabolism and my protein metabolism are almost zero, so even if l did eat enough l wouldnt be able to process it. This is also why the fasting works so well for me. l am literally directing…

Osmotic Water Fasting – The Recipe

As you probably know by now l have always been an avid spokesperson against water fasting, partly because of what happens with the freeing of the highly toxic, free-radical metabolites after 36h of fasting (read here) but mainly because of the shift in electrolytes that happens when you water fast more than 24h. Let me just make it clear: l have no problem with people doing OMAD (One Meal A Day) every day for the rest of their lives!Why?Simply because if you eat every day (once every 24h) you are in my opinion not fasting. You eat every day, thats…

Gluten-free Vegan Keto Bagel

I love bread!However, l havent had any grains since the early 2000´s instead l make my own bread, crisp bread and now bagels with seeds and nuts. The recipes differ a bit but the core ingredients are the same. The Keto Bread Mix First off l make a bread-mix with different seeds that are all keto. I pick the different seeds in the amounts that l like the most, so you just do the same.Fx in only 25g of sunflower seeds you get all the calcium you need and dont have to worry if you dont get any dairy, there..…

Vegan Keto Veggies – re-feed shortcuts

A lot of people think vegan is difficult, they think keto is difficult but they think vegan keto is impossible!Its not.What is difficult is changing whatever habit you have, if you dont see the point of changing it. I am vegan and living keto because with those choices l am recovering my brain in the best way possible.And only having to eat specific things at specific times and with that recover from a brain injury, to me that seems like the easy solution! Because of my injury l struggle with planning, l struggle with concentration and l struggle if the…

Vegan Keto Curry Re-feed

Re-feed between the fasts is just as important as getting the salt while you fast.And yet not many people talk about the re-feeds so l am going to do that from now on! I am plant based and l am eating keto - both because it supports my brain recovery the most.This is what l made for me and my brother yesterday.

Is a 110h water fast a failure?

Ok, let´s talk failure and disappointment in one self. In a lot of the fasting groups on Facebook l often read post where someone had decided to do a 48h, 72h, 96h or even 1 week water fast but for some reason they stopped the fast before they were supposed to. All of them - without an exception - touch on the topic of feeling like a failure. "I am so disappointed in myself" one writes"l hate myself for quitting" another one writes"l feel like such a failure" another one says l planned to do a 140h fast because it…

Pick your hard – water fasting and brain recovery

When people find out l am water fasting their first response is: "Isn't that hard?!"And yes! It is!Not eating and only drinking salt water for 3 days, you bet its hard!Of course it is!Anyone that says otherwise cant be from this planet! But HOW hard it is, obviously is subjective. If you are in good health, wake up in the morning with a smile on your face and get dressed by singing birds then of course doing a water fast will be hard. But if you have a chronical condition, chemical meds are keeping you alive, you might even be…

Fasting – what happens when?

In order to tell you more about water fasting let me just tell you about what is happening in the body when you are fasting and why l have been so against water fasting. Intermittent Fasting is great! No debate about that! There are so many benefits that l will dedicate an entire post to that. The difference between Intermitten Fasting (IF) and Extended Fasting (EF) is that in IF you eat every day, in EF you go longer than 1 day without food. The main reason to why l have been so against EF is (besides the dehydration of…

How to deal with cruelty

I just want to share how l managed the profound sadness l felt the other day. Its a bit long so please bare with me First l allowed myself to be sad. When l felt the sadness stated to dissolve l read all your messages and they soothed me so much. Thank you all so much! Then l meditated on the sadness to find the real cause of it. The meditation l used was a Metta meditation, its where you repeat an intent, and l really needed that! In a Metta meditation you first wish your intent for yourself. Then you wish…

Handicapped. Inadequate. Vulnerable

Today l feel especially handicapped. l know l am handicapped. l know my brain injury gives me an invisible handicap where l look normal but perceive everything abnormal.And that is confusing for people. l am used to that. They don’t know any better so l no longer get hurt by remarks, prejudice or rude behaviour. They dont know any better. If l was blind they wouldn’t keep throwing me a ball. But l am not. l look, speak, interact (at least at first glance) completely normal.So when my handicap kick in people just think l am immensely darf, not listening, disinterested or anything else…

I am not brain dead!

I finally got my SPECT scan! It has been 10 months getting here and would not have been possible without all the help l have gotten! l am so grateful for that!Thank you! We got the referral from Dr. McCorry to Trinity Medical Imaging in Sutton. Turned out to be an amazing facility that l can highly recommend*. If you, as l, have been to numerous neurologists being told all the things you are not, then this might be a solution for you too. I have been to 10+ neurologists, in Spain, Denmark, Austria and England, every single one with…
