Fasting for Lent can be a powerful practice, but it’s also significantly misunderstood and culturally challenging. Naturally, if you want to stay on the Ketogenic diet, you need to understand that your protein sources are limited. Furthermore, since the Greek Orthodox church forbids olive oil, you have limited choices of fat from the plant world that are healthy. However, coconut, avocado and a little sesame oil would be fine. Perhaps cold-pressed pumpkin seed oil is also acceptable.
