Intermittant fasting and bee pollen
(Durham, Ontario, Canada)
Hello, and thank you for aloowing me to ask you this question. I practice intermittant fasting (from 8-9pm last meal till around 4pm when I start eating). During the day I only drink water, tea's, and coffee. Would the evening meal be ok to have the bee pollen. I only ask because everyone says they get more energy from it. I don't really need a boost that late because I start to wind down. But I also don't want to comprimise the fast by taking it earlier. Although, I am thinking bee pollen might be alright during the fast (one tablespoon every couple hours or so) to help detox. Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks alot and have a great night. Hunter Jarvis
Great question. Yes, having bee pollen for your meal is certainly doable as it is very nutritious and will provide you with a vast array of nutrients. You'll likely need to consume more than a tablespoon however. I would suggest you read this article/testimonial of someone who lived on nothing but bee pollen for 6 months.
You'll likely get some good tips from it and it was doctor supervised.
You sound like you are experienced at fasting so don't need any tips on how to do it safely. But, I always recommend that you check with your Doctor or ND to ensure that you're healthy or even better, work with an ND while fasting to ensure that you're doing it safely.
If you are detoxing, try to ensure that you're using as clean a bee pollen product as possible so that you're not introducing more toxins into your body with a polluted product while you attempt to rid the body of them.
