The 5-Day Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD): My DIY Version – Day 2

Day 2 report: I go over my experiences with the second day of the fasting mimicking diet (FMD), how I felt, what I ate, and whether I entered ketosis. I discuss my thoughts on how the high ratio of carbs in the diet might affect entering ketosis. I review the ingredients for the meals for the next day (Day 3 of the FMD), including napa cabbage used as a salad, and the protein content of collard greens vs kale for dinner.

Day 2 dinner: butternut squash soup with cumin, turmeric and spicy serano pepper, sautéed shaved Brussel sprouts, and a cucumber dill salad.
