Keto Food Questions

Why do I have digestive issues when I’m breaking my fast?

This could happen because, basically, your digestive system has gone to sleep and it hasn’t woken yet. You don’t want to eat a large meal after a long fast because you will overload your system. You need to start small.

After a long fast, you may also want to take certain things, such as:

  • Apple cider vinegar (ACV) or betaine hydrochloride

  • Bile salts

  • Enzymes

  • Probiotics

Foods to avoid after a long fast:

  • Nuts and nut butters

  • Red meat

  • Raw cruciferous vegetables

  • Dairy products
