Hi Harvdog

I absolutely hope that you mean you have been using *INTERMITTENT FASTING* of durations no more than 36 hours per fast.

Otherwise of course you're going to be dizzy and have all sorts of issues because excessive fasting is very unhealthy.

The body flushes salt as part of the early process of relearning to burn fat as an energy source. Because of this you need additional salt in your diet in the form of 1-3 cups of stock drinks or broth sipped throughout the day.
