Intermittent Fasting

Can I fast after surgery?

Yes. If you’re going to have surgery and you have the ability to prepare for it, it may be best to start intermittent fasting 2 weeks beforehand. This way, you’re fully adapted to fat-burning and you can go into the surgery without any problems with blood sugars.

Right after the surgery you may want to do a more prolonged fast (at least 48 hours).

During your fast it may be best to take certain nutrients, such as:

  • Sea salt

  • Electrolytes

  • B vitamins

  • Amino acids

  • Vitamin D
