I knew a chick that was cool with that. But it cost a 12 pack of bud light and $75.
Went to the bathroom...slight euphoria.
What is your pee experience like?
6 weeks of intermittent fasting. Maybe less. I don't know when I started and when my body changed. But I definitely notice the difference.
As you get older, simple things like urination become a bit more complex. Now, every time I take a whiz, it's like I had just graduated to the big boy potty.
It's often a bit embarrassing when using a public restroom, and people walk in while I am naked and dancing on the top of the countertop. But hey, it's a feast for the senses.
For about half the time over the last 12-13 years, I've followed an 18/6 IFing schedule. I pushed over 24 hours a few times. If you're used to IFing it's pretty easy.
Starting out IFing is pretty rough. I remember once passing some roadkill and thinking it didn't seem like a bad idea to stop and get some.
That was you!?..... where should I send you my old therapy bills.
What was so amazing about it?
The visions and urinary euphoria bro! Duh.
Try it sometime, and you'll see. You get growth hormone, autophagy, stem cell production, and inflammation reduction. You feel strong and clean and want more. When I eat a second time in a day, I always regret it. It's like wasted time and a funky feeling.
Getting old is a helluva thing. I joke about urination, but the truth is, when you see things like that start changing with age, it's concerning. I figured it was my prostrate and there isn't much out there that medicine can do. Fasting reversed what aging had done, and every time I take a whiz, I am grateful. Darn straight I joke about it. It's a relief.
You might not like walking into a public restroom and seeing a grown man dancing naked on the counter, but there will come a day when you just might join me. Or at least put a couple bucks on my clothes pile.
I am 31 going on 32, been working out every other day since 28. No health issues, not over weight or anything...my GF goaded me into it. This is the best I have felt in a couple months at least. I wouldn't be surprised if there was some sort of T boost or something. My lower back stiffness is gone for the moment, and despite being hungry all day, I felt sharper than normal. Gonna try this again next Friday.
I've also been drinking since breaking the fast,.... full disclosure.
I’m considering it. My main concern is the medications I’m on and how well they will work, without food.
A few years ago, I ate only pistachios, for two days. That cleaned me out and I felt really good, overall. This kicked off a new round of workouts and cleaner eating. Perhaps, something similar would be a good way to move back toward being healthier.
It's genuinely difficult to put into words. There was a mental clarity, almost a resetting of the mind which occurred on its own like I've never experienced before. It seemed like my senses heightened dramatically. And, as weird as this sounds, it had a profound effect on my perspective about food and survival. There was a type of high that developed as it went on.
I approached the five day fast as a physical challenge and to see if I had the sheer willpower to control myself so thoroughly. Plus, there were health benefits I had read about concerning fasting. But it ended up being much more of a mental experience than physical even though I lost eleven pounds by the end. Again, I really can't explain the experience with any justice.
After 12 hours of fasting, your body makes ~2000% growth hormone. A new trend is fasted workouts. Read up on it.
The body was made for feast and famine. When in famine, your body is working to make you able to get more food. It's certainly not going to shut down.
The Complete Guide to Fasting by Dr. Jason Fung is a very good resource for anyone interested in the medical benefits and science supporting fasting. The Obesity Code, also by Fung, can absolutely give you a new lease on life if actually followed. The results for me have been miraculous.
Not particularly euphoric, although I can recall some pretty special times employing that apparatus.
I've done 48 hrs on a fast. 38 hrs on an awake. The awake was a lot harder.
I have been doing this for 3 months. I have lost 40 lb.
