Fasting Q&A: Post-Partum Fasting, Potatoes and Vinegar, Kids' Eating Frequency, and More

In this Fasting Q&A episode, Megan and Nadia answer your fasting questions:

1. My baby is now 6 months old, happy and healthy and I’m still struggling to get back into fasting. Is it possible there are still fluctuating hormones at play here with lack of consistent sleep or do I need to give myself a bit more grace and start from the very beginning? [01:51]

2. I heard you say that putting vinegar on potatoes sometimes cuts the carb load. What type of vinegar should I use and how much? [08:04]

3. How much I should be eating on days I am not fasting? [14:08]

4. When you’re new to fasting, what is the best way to start? [20:32]

5. What is the best eating frequency for kids? I have a toddler & 2 kiddos in elementary school. Our pediatrician & family/friends communicate that they should all be having 3 meals + 2 snacks each day. Is this healthy? When do you transition away from snacks? [21:51]

6. For weight loss, you previously mentioned that 16/8 isn't enough. I'd like to try 24 hours/OMAD for a month and if I'm still not losing weight then I'll move to 36 hours and so on. Please give me some insights about what I need to do or not do in order to successfully fast for longer than 16/8. [32:37]
