Personally, I'm fasting today and am going to break it with some unpaleo eats.

A few pieces of advice from someone who has done in every which way.

  1. Plan it. It makes it that much more enjoyable.

  2. Moderate it. Fasting has so many benefits, but IMO, when done properly, you shouldn't be so ravenously hungry that it's a binge-fest for an hour afterward.

  3. Nutrient-density/goal-dependent (MOST IMPORTANT) - After a prolonged period of fasting, your body is ready to literally gobble up the nutrition you give it. Absorption is at the highest level after a fast, so take advantage of this. Get the best quality food and if you have other goals, cater the intake to those. While I eat a very high quality diet for almost every meal, make your fast-breaking meal the best.

I've broken a 28-hour fast with a lb of grass-fed liver with stewed carrots and brussel sprouts cooked in coconut oil, butternut squash with cinnamon and a few hard-boiled eggs. Washing it down with sparkling water and lemon. Felt amazing for a day afterward...

I prefer breaking my fast with a huge bowl of salad , this makes sure I don't go crazy with the food and gets me full pretty quick.

You're making it too hard. There's no magic involved. Just eat.
