Fasting is an exercise for willpower. Willpower is the ability to control your thoughts and actions in order to do what you want. It's the power of self-control. It's your personal power to overcome things like temptations, addictions, and cravings. 

Willpower helps you stick to something, but it's like a muscle that needs to be developed and strengthened. You can do this through intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting is basically a workout to improve your willpower. 

Some people don't think they have the willpower to do fasting. But, fasting increases your willpower to do more fasting. If you get started, it will get easier and easier. 

Fasting removes barriers that keep people from doing fasting in the first place, such as:

• Hunger

• Cravings

• Bad habits 

Tips to help with fasting and enhance your willpower:

1. Start doing intermittent fasting (skip breakfast and don't consume snacks) without keto 

2. Add MCT oil 

3. Start Healthy Keto

4. Find keto-friendly replacements for your favorite foods 

I also want you to go ahead and rate your willpower on a scale from 0-10. Then, after two weeks of fasting, come back to this video and see how it has improved. Having willpower can help you in many other areas of your life as well.
