>What is /fast/?
Fast is a thread for the discussion of intermittent fasting, fasting, water fasting, and dry fasting.

>What’s the difference between intermittent fasting, water fasting, dry fasting, etc.?
>Intermittent fasting: Fasting for a certain amount of time with a short eating window. 16:8 (16 hours fasting, 8 hour eating window) is the bare minimum.
>Water fasting: Fasting with only water.
>Dry fasting: Fasting with no water. Dangerous, use with caution.

>I just can't train for boxing in a fasted state.

what about training boxing when you are only a few hours in the fast? i played 1 hour football match in around 12-13 hours with out eatin and had zero performance issues.

>So you think I should just do Alternate Fasting (which is basically fast on alternating days, e.g. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, but I'll add Sunday too) or just not bother fasting at all?

yeah ADF sounds it would suit you. im just thinkin if you IF and fast full days it will begin to affect your performance. might be effective but not sure how good it is long term. dunno try stuff out then you'll see what will work for you.

Thanks for the advice. On Tuesdays, Thursdays and the weekend (excluding Christmas on Tuesday though) I'm gonna do ADF with a 20/4 plan. Or I might do OMAD on those days if I find I'm gaining weight so I'll play around a little.

as a male, is it gay to wear leggings in the gym?

i only wear it during leg day because squats feel so much better.

Honestly that sounds so gay. Post your ass in tights. Are you sure your tights don't go transparent when they stretch out in a squat so they see your asshole?

depends

if you're a skinny fuck wearing leggings, its definitely gay as fuck

however, if you have big less and can squat a minimum of 315 for reps, then you're allowed to wear it imo

It's still gay to just wear yoga pants without shorts no matter how big your legs are, even if they are tree trunks

>I just feel really sad because I think of the good times and miss them so much. Is it weird that I feel that she was looking for an excuse to end things, and that me bringing up that I feel neglected was the perfect opportunity of her to dump me?

I don't think it's weird. Just judging by the way she was treating you she probably had already, subconsciously, decided that it wasn't going to work. Maybe she didn't want to hurt your feelings or be confrontational and that's why she ended up stringing you along for a bit. Sometimes that's just how breakups happen. No scripted speech or sit down, the feelings just come to the surface and it's clear it's not working.

As far as the good times, and missing them. That's normal. It will hurt less as time goes by. Those feelings can be replaced by another woman, if you let them.

Anon, there is a timeline where you are grateful that you were dumped by this girl because it led you to the girl of your dreams. You're in it bro.

>Do high calorie days actually help with losing weight?

Not exactly.
The problem most people have dieting and working out is that they can actually slow their metabolism down. You see your body is always wanting to survive it thinks that your next meal is not guaranteed so it will slow your metabolism down to try and maintain your body weight. Remember this is when increasing calorie expenditure and decreasing calorie intake.

Many people have this issue. Just think of the standard saying, I lost a decent amount of weight at first and the weight loss slowed to a grind, and then when I went back to my old way of eating not only did I gain all the weight back, I weighed more than when I began!

If you still don't believe me look at the biggest loser contestants. They never do any follow ups ever. Why? Because their metabolism was slowed down so much that when the said hey look at me I am a trim normal person and can just eat 2000 calories a day again! Wrong they slow their metabolism down very low and gain everything back and more.

Truly what I have found in my own experience and lots of reading is that this is where fasting works very well. When you fast for a day your metabolism actually speeds up, when calorie restriction slows down to the rate of your current diet. This is why people have such great results with intermittent fasting.

I am not implying anything you have done is wrong anon with your diet but your metabolism is slowed down. What I would do is a three day water fast.

After your fast go back to what you were doing before. Or look into a type of fasting focused lifestyle like an 8 hour eating window or tighter.

Why do people say boxing causes brain damage but not for MMA?

Isn't there more padding?

Are you also gonna say headgear increases brain damage?
47 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.

>>48769035
In theory mma is safer because there are more ways to lose than "get punched in the head" and fights are stopped at knockout instead of giving you a ten count to recover.
Gloves exist to protect the other guy's face from cuts. Bare knuckle shots open up cuts much more easily. Fewer cuts = longer more exciting fights = more brain damage.
Headgear provides a bit of padding which increases your ability to take shots, which then increases the number of shots you take, thus worsening damage.
Brain damage is basically inevitable over a long enough time frame. Every single hit you take could tip you over the edge, you really don't know where your line is. Floyd is as smart as he's ever been, which is partly because he fought the second half of his career with a focus on not getting hit, and partly because he's naturally resilient. Bernard Hopkins is just as evasive a fighter but slurs pretty heavily.
In the future we hope they will scan your brain immediately after every fight and any early signs of serious damage will be treated... somehow. But we are really in the dark age when it comes to brain damage.

>>48769560
Force = mass x acceleration.
Assuming that you're not so chemopatient-weak that 16oz meaningfully slows down your punch, no you cannot hit harder with 8oz on.
>>
>>48769035
Boxing focuses 99% on headshots because its an extremely simplistic sport.
>>
what kind of retarded question is that OP?

Boxing is 100% hitting the person in the head. Whereas MMA only uses headshots opportunistically and most fights finish without knockouts.

Listen friends

Here's what you do.

You have to transplant the temples

If you're headed for nw5+, you're never going to be able to transplant back to nw2-nw1 - it's simply too much surface area and you have not enough donor hair, if you do it will be very thin, and look bad.

So you transplant your temples only

then you wear a hair piece over the top

wala, nw2-1
