So I am fasting, just passed 96 hrs and I feel amazing. I am 300 lbs, 38% body fat, so my body can survive a really long time on my stores of fat. 


I have verified that I'm in ketosis and am feeling so amazing that I think I may just continue fasting until I hit my goal weight, or somewhere near it. 


I was wondering if anyone knew what supplements one needs to accomplish that, to fast for 2-3+ months.


I know electrolytes are important, so salt, potassium, calcium to prevent osteoporosis, B vitamins like Niacin, Folate, B12, iron, zinc and a whole bunch else. 


Right now I am taking 2 pre-natal vitamins/day. I'm a male but I figure that women have higher nutritional needs and by doubling up I'm pretty well covered. But in case I decide to go super long term on this fast, just want to make sure my bases are covered.

You seem to know what you need.

I've come too far to let a cookie tell me what to do.
