I always eat fast.
I fast for 22 hours every single day. You get used to it.
Every now and then, I'll fast for a few days. It gets interesting after a while.
I talked to a friend on the phone today and he said fasting is part of the reason why monks can meditate themselves into "visions".
Personally I don't want to take it that far but it does sound interesting.
Uh, 48 hours in, is by far the worst part.
After that it gets scary easy. Literally.
-sometimes mild depression as you're carb induced stuper wears off. Buy something nice hobby related to get through that. Build a Glock or a model airplane or something.
-then the euphoria and joy when you're body switches from storage mode, to adrenalized hunter mode.
-usually I'm really cheery by now, starting to notice less knee pain. You're body heals better when it's not busy digesting crap.
If I crave meat or vegetables, I go to the grocery store and get some. Neither has enough calories to f up a good fast. No sweets or carbs though.
Bacon, eggs, and broccoli seem to be my regular cravings. Steak and salad next.
I ain't getting into the visions quip, because I don't want a Facebook mandated straight jacket. But yeah, kinda.
I've been trying to get my body used to intermittent fasting over the last couple of weeks. I "count" any day I did a clean fast for at least 14hrs. Last week I did 6 out of seven days with one day going for 21 hrs.
Starting this weekend, I hope to up that to a 16 hr minimum. We'll see at what hour total I'll level it out with.
BTW, I have lost maybe 5 pounds and a belt notch without changing what I eat. Only when.
Day 2 is always the hardest for me. Anything after that is "scary easy" as you say.
I have had a lot of visions.
They usually were after I ate 2-47 hits of acid.
Oh to be young again.....
The key for me when fasting is to drink a lot of water or unsweet tea. A 24 hr fast gives your digestive system "a break". It's not a bad thing to do.
And it is a actually scary.
I remember thinking ''gee, I'm going to save a ton of money if I never eat again.'' on day four.
But fresh vegies and high end meats are kinda pricey. And salt for all of that water. Otherwise I cramp up.
Seem to crave some gym time when the adrenaline kicks in.
One or two capfuls in coffee or a glass of water.
47? Lmao. I bet you met the whole gang. Jesus, Buddha, and that rasta guy Haile Salassie.
I just realized, I bet my burger and fries only made it to what 1200 calories max. Thankfully I do have beer to provide additional substance.
Honestly it started out as fun but then I would learn something from each trip.
So a great way to spend the weekend!
Once I stopped learning It was like my sober self would take over my trip and bring it back to reality before the normal time.
Once that was over I stopped as I had learned all that was available from that outlet.
Not quite the thread drift if you incorporate visions and such into the discussion.......
I do every day. I eat once a day, and I see the benefits. After you get accustomed to it, it's nothing. I like pushing out to 36 and 48 hours. At 48 hours your body is making stem cells.
Watch TED talks about intermittent fasting, and YouTube videos on One Meal a Day. Every bit of it is true.
It's an amazing process.
ETA: Let's talk potty stuff and autophagy. As men get older, our urinary behavior changes. You don't get the full stream you used to, and apparently you don't fully empty. 6 weeks of OMAD, and I noticed that when I go now, it's like turning on a spigot on a bucket. Full pencil sized stream from start to finish, I don't have to push to get velocity, and I get a euphoric feeling in the gut when finished. And no post voidal drip. My resting heart rate is steady with little variation, and the gut is disappearing.
Making stem cells.
I have never heard this.
I enjoy a good drift. I'm a sailboat kind of guy not powerboat. If the wind is there I'll sail it, if it's not, drifting is enjoyable too.
I know what you are talking about,, but I would have to discuss a other way.
To add to the Story, I think the last time I went this long without eating, it was on a sailboat, when my Father and I got stuck out on lake Sam Rayburn with no wind and no motor ( he broke the pullstart rope). It was like 2am when I came up with the GENIUS idea of pulling the motor cover off and wrapping the rope around the flywheel, like an old cartoon. We both couldn't believe it worked.
Sometimes, during the trials of dispare and deprivation, or acid/shrooms.....moments of clarity burst forth.
So I was 24h away from some urinary euphoria?
I do it pretty much every day. I only eat once a day, a late dinner.
