When Dr Fung introduced this new membership, I took it as an additional service where they could serve more people, at less cost than the long distance program. The blog stays as is...Or I hope so because the cancer series is great. I donít know if he is 100% right, he isnít an oncologist, but it makes sense to me so far. Brenda Zorn already does "communal fasts" on a forum related to IDM for no cost, PM me if interested and donít know where to find her. I have been drinking the KetoAide recipe for electrolyte replacement, which has the mildest touch of flavor from magnesium citrate to cover the salt taste. Drinking 48 oz gives a fixed amount of sodium potassium and magnesium.

This is a good system: a certain level free, people who need more can get books, courses, or memberships.

KetoAide is a calorie free electrolyte water
24 oz filtered water(or tap water)
1/4 teaspoon Mortonís Lite Salt
1/2 Tablespoon magnesium citrate
Mix well. [I shake up in two sports bottles] Refrigerate for best taste.
Magnesium citrate is sold at most drug stores in three flavors, lemon lime, grape, and cherry. Sweetened with saccharin. It adds a slight flavor to the Ketoaide. It is inexpensive at $1 per 10 oz bottle. [emphasis on slight flavor...don't expect soda ]
Use Lite Salt because it contains sodium AND potassium. Priced low at $2 per 11 oz. You could also buy ďNo SaltĒ which is all potassium, and add your own salt. Lite Salt and No Salt are sold at most large grocers.

Each bottle of KetoAide provides
290 mg sodium
350 mg potassium
75 mg magnesium

The Zorn fast recommends two of these bottles...but that depends on your need for electrolytes...but do not over-consume potassium, e.g. dont take potassium supplements plus this. Magnesium citrate is a laxative, but this is a small amount, it has had no effect on me. I like to drink water cold and have always kept some sports bottles in the fridge ready to drink. This adds some electrolytes without going overboard.

I don't know if using LiteSalt has any magic over supplementing with salt, potassium and magnesium tablets. For me it is more an easier way to remember to take them. It is related to Dr. Fung's new membership option in that communal fasts are found elsewhere.

Yes, I understand, I am just on the verge of really engaging with IF, and I have been struggling with the combinations of the salts, I think your recipe looked manageable. Indeed, anything to SIMPLIFY!!
