What is Flow? Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi coined the term flow and published the work, "Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience"
Defined by Csikszentmihalyi, Flow is:
“A state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter; the experience is so enjoyable that people will continue to do it even at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it.”
What Roles Do Ketosis and Fasting Play in Flow? Siim Land uses a ketogenic diet and different types of fasting to enhance focus. For Siim, he functions better in ketosis. The combination of a ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting reduces Siim's decision fatigue and enables him to get more done without being influenced by hunger or excessive food choice.
