any fasting biggaz out there?
i've started to dabble with holding out to dinner. it has been positive overall, there's surely a high, maybe also a little anger too though. anyone else trying this?

I love fasting! Clear my head better than any meditation 🧘🏻‍♀️
Lately I’ve been doing OMAD (One Mea a Day) and it’s amazing, such a hassle free way of living plus it makes easier to choose something healthy to eat.

The only thing that makes me go OUT OF CONTROL is the munchies 🥴 I would eat the legs of the chairs if i could ha

I've replaced most munchies with strawberries. Great results. Exceptionally clean teeth too!

Did a ten day fast with only water few months ago..Had the occasional bit of salt and lemon to suppress appetite. Cleared pimples ive had for years, black marks on my skin. Still smoked weed during it..called it my "weed and water" fast
but wow was an amazing experience days 2-3 are the hardest, after that u get a natural body high and u feel intermittent bursts of energy which u should use to do light exercise....was losing over 0.8kg a day..would defo recommend!!
Dr Berg on youtube for more info helped me alot!

I've been on and off 17/7 for the last year and I feel I reached a plateau.. I wonder if I should try OMAD or one day on, one day off.. Any one have any tips on how to not stuff your face once your fasting time is up?!

ha! in my case it is not so. my metabolism went up. and I can now drink and smoke more than before ;) with much less bad side-effects

Yeah, I do it once a year. Did do it for detox and lose some weight but recently it's been a more spiritual experience.

First few days or week are always tough. No caffeine, nicotine or cannabis makes me cranky as f......

I generally don't eat until about 5pm. Still overweight due to munchies. But have halved sugar and doubled cardio and weights with really impressive results.

Just starting Out my own fast, just water only for the last 48 hours.

Going to try it once a week (for the health benefits)

No bad side affects so far, just not able to eat socially can be a downer when your on it.

48 is right when it starts feeling a wee bit psycho. like you're going to eat a side of beef or nothing ever again.

that said i find the hardest part is compatibility with others and meal times

I agree, a big portion of connections with other people is around dinner time. Hard to miss.

How are you getting on? I’ve been intermittent fasting (16:8) for a while, always tempted to do a 48 or 72 hour fast, so like a full body reset
+5
ganjaflava
Do it bro.. its amazing..but must say first 72 hours are usually the hardest..after that your body starts using its own fat reserves more efficiently.. so would suggest 7-10 days if u can.. everyday after the 3rd ull see benefits and increased energy levels..

The Kurgan
Wow! That’s a long one haha Do you experience much muscle wastage in that time? Burning a bit of fat is never a bad thing though haha

I stopped for now, but honestly I felt much more healthy when I was doing the fast and need to jump back on or at least reset my diet yet again… too many Greg’s tuna baguettes at 10 am during the week plus weekend take away has ruin my diet.

Too much processed foods.

The fast is an easy way to reset body and diet and just great for the mental.

going to go for a half day fast on Monday and steadily creep up to a 48/72 hour fast over the next couple weeks

The Kurgan
yeah that’s the downfall of our diets these days, everything is just so easy to get our hands on. Access to food constantly, I always have a bit of a relapse at weekends haha deadly case of the munchies 😂 I will most definitely do a 48 hour one soon I think, I seem to get on quite well with 16:8 and like you said you feel healthier
