Working out and training during an extended/multi-day fast

As a fat adapted athlete I incorporate many 48 hour, and 72 hour fasts, throughout the year, as part of my training.  But do you have to stop working out during a fast? 

In this video I will try and answer this question, as well as several others, I frequently get.  And while I am not an expert on prolonged fasting, I have been doing this for 6 years, and thought I would share my experience for folks who were curious about it.

As a mountain biker and trail runner, fasting has become an important tool that I regularly rely on.  Not only has it helped me mentally, but the benefits I have experienced regarding overall health have been wonderful.   Since fasting, I have found I don’t get sick as much, I am healing a lot quicker, and I have been more focused and driven.

Of course I am not a doctor or nutritionist, and if you have concerns or questions regarding your own health and fasting, please consult them first.

If you feel like a missed anything, or you want me to cover something in more detail, let me know. If you want to learn more about intermittent fasting, multi-day fasting and diets, check out Dr Berg’s channel here: https://www.youtube.com/c/DrEricBergDC/videos
