My husband intermittent fast. He drinks plain black coffee and water during his fast window period. 

Initially for the first month on and off he said one can experience hunger, or lightheadedness. After that his body adjusted.

A former coworker told me her husband tried one. He was unable to stay on the diet as it was not a match for him. He experienced more symptoms of irritability, fatigue, and more. He went off it after 3 weeks. 

It does appear the people it is a fit for know within a month.

Good luck 


That's just about the length of time it takes to get through the metabolic adjustment period. I wish he had stuck it out longer.

Hi Trents, I made this recipe today and love it. Some of the cream cheese didn’t mix in well but I will work on that for the next time. Also my grocery store doesn’t carry the 5% Fage so I used the 10% whole milk plain by Cabot. 

think I had keto flu for a few days: headache, leg cramps but now better. 

thanks for the recipe.
