Also, make sure you include some dark leafy greens and/or a salad with all meals to further lower your blood sugar. If possible buy organic every time to reduce the amount of pesticides in your body. My diet is specialized version of keto for fasting and running on fats as a energy source instead of blood sugar like many people in the United States. I usually fast for 16 to 23 hours, and have either one meal a day or two smaller meals. Lower calorie intake is linked to slower aging and promotes longevity. Some days I do not have carbohydrates in my diet, while other days I do.
