In for a long 50 days, lads. Wish me luck.

>>59994850I'll eat you up bby
>>59994848>In for a long 50 days, lads. Wish me luck.50 days continuous? What for?
Is pic related accurate?
>>59994809Daily reminder that 16:8 isn’t fasting. It’s eating a late breakfast, lunch, and an early dinner.
>>59994933Extended fast. I do best with very long fasts rather than rolling 96s
>>59995025But what's the goal? What's your starting and goal weight?
>>59995049My bad. Starting 265 lbs, my goal is to get to around 220-15 from this fast.
>>59995098why not just do rolling 72s or 96s? sustainability and forming a strict regime is more important than going balls-to-the-wall anon.good luck with the 50 dayer, my personal best is 22 days, it gets freakishly boring and difficult beyond 14 imo.
Will OMAD fuck up my gains? Trying to lose fat and simultaneously build muscle.
>>59995176you can't do both at the same time. cut first.
>>59994809Brainlet here - can I lift while I do snake juice fasting? How long should I fast? Any tips appreciated
>>59995282start with a 24 hour, then transition to 48 hours, then try to do rolling 48s, (wait 48 hours, eat a low-carb meal, fast another 48 hours). as for lifting, take it easy, focus on low weight and more volume rather than hypertrophy.you will find that rolling 48s make lifting still manageable.
>>59995308Cool, how often would you recommend a beginner doing this? Thinking once a month or so?
>>59994981It literally is. Look up the definition of fasting. >>59995176If you're a beginner at lifting, that will happen regardless of diet, as long as you are doing a good routine like Starting Strength. I would only suggest OMAD if you have a lot of weight to lose. It gets rough as the weights get heavy.
yesterday I was hungry and wanted to eat a chicago pizza by myself. today is refeed and I am struggling to finish 1700 calories. I wonder when my cravings will get aligned with my ability to eat now
>>59995025you'll lose more weight rolling 72s or 96s then long fasts
>>59995364try to do it as often as possible. see if you can do 24 hours (omad) every day for a week. if you find it easy, try to do rolling 48s for a week.
>>59995282I see good results lifting on my refeed days, eating in a short window, fasting the following day, refeed and lifting, repeat. It isn't always exactly 48 hour fasts, because then I'd end up eating at like 9pm eventually. I take exercise easy on the fasting days. Maybe a walk. I used to be a psycho and do 20-25 minutes of HIIT. Burned out. I'm getting an exercise bike that'll be here in a couple days that I plan on going light on for 20 minutes in the morning on fasting days. Maybe do some kettlebell swings before. 5 sets of 20, something like that.
>>59994963Partially, the timing are incorrect but the steps are correct.>>59994981Yes.>>59995451I'm hoping this happens to me as well. The last few refeeds I've been unable to finish my food.>>59995282See pic related.>>59995464Depends how fat you are, in my experience.>How are we doing on breaking our food addictions, anons?
>>59995464Really? I was unaware of this So I would lose more weight doing rolling 96s than an extended fast in the same timeframe?
>>59995869yes. extended fasts slow the fat burning and also the metabolism. the idea is to take full advantage of the fat burning from fasting and also give your body the protein and the micronutrients you need ever refeed. If you are eating near or under your TDEE then you wont be gaining weight from your refeed and instead also bumping up your metabolism again.
DO I really need potasium chloride?Isnt iodized salt enough for rolling 72s?
>>59995419It’s a useless form of fasting. Zero real hormonal benefit. Doesn’t increase metabolic processes. Way to easy to over eat while in it. It’s for people with shitty willpower to get on so they brag that they’re doing IF. Enjoy your zero progress.
>>59995451fuck it took me 2 hours of eating to finish that meal. sure it was a lot of food but in my previous refeeds I was able to do it. insane how months ago I could finish a large pizza no problem and be hungry hours later
>>59995983sure dude just make sure to put in a bunch and you'll be good
>>59995983Yeah it is pretty important. Potassium is essential for blood pressure. Many people experience heart palpitations while in extended fasts. Two causes for this: 1) increased cortisol and adrenaline secretion & 2) electrolyte imbalance. Not much you can do about the adrenaline and cortisol but the electrolyte is simple to fix. If you don’t have potassium on hand now, that’s fine. Start your fast, order some or go buy some. You’ll be fine for 1-3, 72 hour fasts.
>>59994809how tf do I get these hunger pangs to go away? They only seems to get worse as time goes on
What do (You) like to eat on a refeed after 96h+ hours of fasting?
Still waiting for my Peloton to arrive...
>>59996280cut carbs more fat in refeeds. if you are rolling 48s might as well do 72s as the third day the pains mostly go away. as your stomach and appetite lower over time your hunger decreases. cutting yourself from carb/sugar addiction and getting into ketosis consistently will help too though at first it will be hard. really depends on what you eat during your refeeds. if you eat junk food made to trigger all kinds of pleasure centers in your head then yeah you're going to keep craving those hits while if you eat natural foods then you wont really have to deal too much with that
Can we all share what we eat after a 48/72/96? And how you feel after?For me I started having tomato soup, avocado, ribeye, salmon, spinanch, Greek yogurt with tangerines. About 100 grams of carbs and 1800 calls (need to up it). Each time I fell asleep for several hours. I know some people are able to eat a lot more on refeed. Some even eat higher carbs. Wondering why I can’t. It’s crazy, I used to eat an entire half gallon of ice cream not pass out this hard.
>>59996393after a 72 I eat 4 eggs3 sausage (no filler)6 oz Tuna1/2 bunch Spinachlow carb greek yogurt2 mozz string cheese1/4 cup almondsclove of garlic2 tbsp olive oil to cook with (find the one that tastes kinda bitter, extra virgin obv but so many of those fucking companies lie about it. I use Colavita but I wouldnt be surprised if they fuck you over too but the ones I'm sure are legit are too expensive for cooking oil) 1 tbsp coconut oil and some cinnamon with a cup of coffee 1735 cal 123.5g fat 145g pro 13g carb+supps obv
>>59996280may I ask what is the origin of the image you posted?
Do you get to ketosis faster by exercising or does it still take 4 days?
>>59996500>it still take 4 days????
>>59994809Does anyone here have any experience with skipping breakfast out of their diets even when they're not fasting and bulking? My appetite is unbelievably shit in the morning and forcing myself to eat breakfast usually leads to me retching or vomiting at times.
>>599965004 days is the upper end of the bell curve for fatty livers in sedentary fatasses. most people only have a few hours' worth of glycogen stored in their livers
>>59996490The Story of a Prideful Girl Being Blackmailed and Made to Cum Everyday by Ehohinya (Ehohin).nhentai.net/g/344582/>>59996363Okay i'll give it a shot. Because that's exactly what I do when I break a fast lol
>>59996649really you should be at most eating once a day and as early as possible. if you have an upset stomach when you wake up drink some green tea and then eat if you can.
>>59996795Thanks a lot. I'll give that a shot.
>>59996336Pls be my rich gf
>>59994848What's that app?
>>59997049It’s called Zero
Sorry for the incredibly stupid question but I'm and ESLer: when you guys say "rolling 48hs" you mean 48hs of fasting, then ONE SINGLE REFEED (not one DAY of eating, one MEAL), then 48s of fasting again, etc?
>>59997275yes that is why hours instead of days are used to avoid unnecessary confusion. obviously you dont need to fast for 48 hours and if it works for your schedule 46 hours or 50 would be fine. the idea to eat the meal in one sitting is so you can restart the fast immediately
>>59997320Thanks anon, have a nice one
28 hoursI am about to sleep and see if i can keep goingAre any multivitamins good or are there specific multivitamins for fasting?
2 SNEK MEN VIDEOS IN ONE DAY
How necessary is snake juice? I try to walk a few miles a day and do body weight stuff every few days but I don't feel like I sweat that much
>>59997687dont use it and see how it goes bro
>>59997275I usually do a feeding window, and while I try to keep it tight (say 2-4 hours at most) I'll admit that sometimes I just eat a few meals a day for that one day i.e. breakfast lunch and dinner and then go back into another fast the next day. I know it's not as optimal but there's no reason why you can't do this as long as you're not eating trash and constantly spiking your insulin.
How do you cope with the idea that you aren't going to eat except every so often? I'm early on in my fasting cycles and I'm fat so I'm too used to eating food, but it's really hard to ignore eating out of boredom. That creates the most perceived discomfort of all.
Day 6/46Good morning, frens
>>59998464I'm doing a very long fast because of this.I am addicted to food and I'm cold turkeying it
>>59998464do something when you're bored. I mean eating because youre bored doesnt sound good at all right? Take the opportunity to buy higher quality ingredients for your meals (since youre saving money eating less) and enjoy the meal itself instead of just using it as a way to get a food high from carbs/sugar
>fasted for little over 48 hours now>have a cup of coffee>almost feel like I'm fucking dying>heart racing like maddid I fuck up? my nigger friend told me coffee and fasting complement each other
What kind of lifting program is good for rolling 48s?
>>59998678sometimes it's too acidic. Take some electrolytes, lay down and see if you feel better. If not make some broth.
>>59998721look up cole's videos on lifting on 48s
This has already been asked a thousand times before but:Will drinking a 0 cal can of>BANG!Break a two day water fast?If so why? I need the caf because this fast falls on the day I got class.
>>59999083For some people 0 calories sips will spike insulin and break the fast and for some people it won't. I try to avoid them when fasting but sometimes you need them to get by.. however you should be feeling that natural energy boost from being in ketosis anon.
>>59999083Can I drink coffee, tea?>Yes, if you are a sensitive individual too much caffeine can raise cortisol too much, YMMV.Can I have diet soda? Or anything with artificial sweeteners?>You can do whatever you want. We recommend avoiding those, because they may increase insulin secretion (cephalic phase response).from the OP. if you need to eat drink or w/e for work or school then do it
>>59999083artificial sweeteners aren't recommended. Here's one article about the ones that are recommended and the ones you should avoid https://www.zerofasting.com/which-sweeteners-break-your-fast/ and https://buffbudsfitness.com/blogs/blog/which-sweeteners-can-you-consume-while-fastingBut I'll write out a summary since zero calorie sweeteners always comes up as a fasting question.The winners are: Allulose, Inositol, Stevia and OligosaccharidesARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS:Sucralose (Splenda): Not great for fastingAspartame (Equal): Not great for fasting. Maltodextrin: AVOID! This may as well be sugar.Acesulfame k (acesulfame potassium, ace-k): Not great for fasting, not great for daily life. Saccharin: Not great for fasting, not great for daily life.Allulose: Good for fasting.SUGAR-ALCOHOLS Erythritol: Ok for fasting (but activates digestion)Xylitol: Ok for fasting in small amounts.Maltitol: Breaks a fast and is a terrible fart-inducing compoundInositol:Great for fasting, great for daily life. Sorbitol: Ok in very small amounts (i.e. gum)NATURAL SWEETENERSStevia: Excellent for fasting, excellent for daily life. Monkfruit: Ok for fasting, great for daily life.Oligosaccharides: Excellent for fasting, excellent for daily life.
HiKind of disappointed desuBeen fasting on and off (with a lot of fast foot in between) since the 9th of January, so far I've lost 32 lbs. From 202-170 lbs in about 45 days. I look at myself in the mirror and I'm still disappointed, I still have fat on my body, it's irritating and making me depressed as fuck. I'm not shredded at all like I thought I'd be.I have a stress fracture (or tendon problem) on my foot, so I can't walk anymore. I've been walking like 10+ miles a during my fasts, so it's painful knowing I'm only burning my BMR per day now, walking was the only thing I had left that kept my mood up. I really aren't sure I can deal with fasting anymore.It was really difficult to resist the urge to order a 14 inch garlic butter Kiev calzone last night, not sure if I can't resist that urge anymore. So close, yet so far. Really sad rn can anyone else relate?
>>59996280Sometimes hunger pangs are caused by lack of sleep
>Intermittent fasting: farting daily with a short eating window.What did OP mean by this?
>>59999505why didnt you post your height? I am your weight but a skellymode lanklet im confused by your post.
>>59999477Off a quick 30 second glance Bang! Doesn't list any sweetners I saw, but I only looked for 30 seconds. Which one if any does it use?
>>59999546I'm 5'11 I've come to realise I have quite a small frame that was hidden under quite a lot of fat
>>59999554sure it does or it wouldn't be sweet tastingit has sucralose and ace-k
What happened to the fasting discord server??
>>59999505sounds like youre back on the path of a fatty. enjoy the next 20 years before you die of a heart attack weighing 400 bro
>>59999632it got taken over by trannies who started asking if they could fast while on hormone drugs
>>59999694cool!! I'll fit right in then!!What's the link
why am I so thirsty during the day I have a refeed meal?
>>59994809I'm getting hella thirsty from the snake juice. Should I drink some regular water to hydrate myself?
Just broke a fast with broccoli of all things and it tasted so good what the fuck? I don't even know how to cook or prepare it specially, it was just some frozen broccoli I threw in a microwave with some salt/pepper added.
>>60000209its the carbs baby
Bros, I can't stop eating multiple times a day. And that's coming from a guy that used to fast 72h hours.Why my body and mind such a bitch? Sometimes I get hungry, other times I just want a comfort food.
>>60000310too many carbs baby
Broccoli wont even kick you out of ketosis and tastes great.One of my fav salads is blanched broccoli and cauliflower with a shit ton of black pepper, salt, olive oil and 2 or 3 limes.Shit, guys, I miss comfort food, I weight 150 kilos now, I've been eating unhealthy amounts of healthy food for the past decade. Don't allow yourselves to get this massive.I'm 1,95 m and I'm still actve, but it sucks
Cutting excess water this week (so basically IF as usual but with no/barely any carbs)How do you guys find the energy to do light calisthenics and conditioning (especially burpees) for reps ? Just the second day depleting and I already can't.Should I absorb more salt ?
Some 18 hours in. It's not even bad. Going to go as long as I can. Probably 10+ days.
Are you guys planning to fast for life or will you eventually go back to a "normal" eating schedule after reaching your goal weight?
>>60001303ill be doing I think a 72 a week for the rest of my life.
>>60001303Adopting to eating less in frequency and quantity. Low carb diet. Fasting takes too much mental space to practice regularly. Probably going to do fasts occasionally to lose any weight I might gain
>>60001303I'll use it as a tool from time to time.
>>59994809Is fasting every other day for a clen cycle a good idea?
>>59997687Depends on your body anon, some people here are fine rolling 48 without it, some others get keto flu
>>59999505See it this way, you didn't get fat in a day and you won't get fit in a day either. Everything takes time. I'll reach my recommended weight in June/July for reference. Be strong and the results will come.
>>60001303Fast every Lent, it's Lindy. And maybe not eat on Sundays.
Will eating my boogers/ fingernails/ dead skin break my fast?
>>59999999Where is that get
>>59999588Shit... Is there a 0 cal energy drink with no added sweeteners or just stevia?Should I just shoot caffine in my veins at this point and hope I don't die from it?
>>60001708bro if you think the sweeteners are the only problem with energy drinks then lmfao
Do cold showers really help with loose skin or is that broscience
>>60001866Yeah yeah I don't really have a better choice aside from passing out in class from sleep deprivation help me damage control here, and just give the best energy drink will you?
>>60001925It's magical thinking. There is no connection between cold showers and loose skin. It's a hopeful thinking pattern that if you put any type of effort into something then it must give results.
>>60001925Sounds brosci. Cold shower in the morning is supposed to spike your your cortisol and make you wake up, through this effect help control your circadian rhythm which should lead to healthier life.
>>60001946just use caffeine pills like truckers do jesus bro
>>5999484850 seems crazy but you do you. 14 day over here. It took me a few years to work up to this since I’m not very fat. Good for spiritual/discipline gains however.
>>60001925probably not but still worth doing
For the Zero app, does anybody have the premium edition and is it worth it
>>60000310If you are fat, just pound snake juice and go for a walk to beat hunger pangs. If you are pretty lean and training, play with your eating schedule. Try eating a big meal early and fasting the remainder of the day, instead of waiting for dinner to eat. A lot of protein early in the day is linked to better appetite control later.
>>60002057It is not worth it imo. The premium “recommendations” are no better than you would get here (the paid content is literally stuff like videos explaining the difference between OMAD and ADF). The “coaching plan” is literally something you could come up with in five minutes. I wasn’t expecting much and it was still disappointing.
>>60001982Wait, so should I not take cold showers while fasting? Since I don't want to raise cortisol levels
How do you all beat the alcohol jew?The crack of an ice cold beer at the end of the day? Mmmmmmmmm.
>>60002122why beat it? just keep drinking till you drop bro YOLO
>>60002121The acute stress and increase in cortisol from cold showers is not a concern to me. Acute stress spikes quickly, and decreases quickly, which feels amazing (you probably feel really good after a cold shower). This type of stress is beneficial. It leads to lower overall stress. Also, hardly anybody gets the natural variation in temperature that humans would normally be exposed to. I think that variation is good.I'm more concerned with chronic stress. Fasting puts a chronic stress on you. It should be managed with relaxation/meditation, light activity (an acute stress that lowers chronic stress), even cold showers would help imo.
>>60002244eating 3 meals a day puts constant stress on your body you stupid nigger
So for someone just getting into the world of fasting, should I start with a 24 hour fast, then move my way up? What is the ideal caloric intake during a feeding period? Ideal macros?
Hey guys, I'm 5ft 9, 155 lbs here and Im estimating that my body fat is probably at 15-20% range and I want to get close to the 15%. Would you guys reccomend fasting for this?
>>60002268You don't know what you're talking about.
>>60002122living in a socialist hellhole where its unaffordable
>>60002121You get cortisol spike every morning. It's literally what makes you wake up. Some people have trouble waking up and continue being tired. Bro scientists fix this by forcing a cortisol spike by having a cold shower in the morning.I don't think cortisol spike when you wake up is a problem, it's a good thing. Chronically high cortisol is bad.
>>60001303Omad for life, I know myself and it's too easy to get fat without even noticing until your summer clothes are now stupid tiny. It's also the perfect diet if you happen to be a faggot bottom.
>>60002512guess what the body goes through when it constantly has to digest food. It starts with an "s" retard
Anyone still eating sweets on refeeds? I'm doing 6 day fasts and I have 2 scoops of ice cream every time. So far I've been losing weight crazy fast so I guess it's okay. It's also a way to practice moderation, because before this I could finish 2 pints easily in one sitting
>>60002826Anon you know the answer already, don't you?
>>60002826From time to time I eat some candy, but I switched to some no sugar added protein pudding/quarks instead.Bit mad I can't find that ice cream with Rum Raisin in stores anymore though.
>>60002840Nope. I don't. Every one does things differently. I've been losing 5kg - 11ibs a week. I'm pretty sure a little sugar does jack shit, when it's all in a small window on 6 day fasts. >>60002841My choice is even more limited. It's either the one I posted or the fancy coffee flavored one. I'd love to try the animu rum raisin ones.
>>60002881I kinda like their regular strawberry one, but the Rum Raisin? I would unironically suck dick for it. That's how good it is. Never tasted their other because I was never much for ice cream.
>>60002881Welp it goes without saying you'll lose weight faster without a pint of icecream sitting around
>>60002917Well I can't argue with that
Ok bros so is diarrhea from snake juice just inevitable? The day before yesterday I spent the day with pure liquid shit erupting out of my asshole all day, so yesterday I drank less snake juice, but this morning I almost passed out, presumably because I didn’t drink much snake juice yesterday
>>60002941Anon I'm not saying I don't have a sweet tooth either, just pointing out to remember your long-term priorities. As you get slimmer your weight loss will slow down and plateau and it's very easy to relapse back to step 1. If I'm really dying to eat something sweet I add a spoonful of fruit jam in greek yogurt or some cocoa powder in my morning cappuccino. Yesterday my mom made my favorite cake and it was really hard to pass, but the scale is always right.
>>60002826I lost all my 100+lbs while eating unhealthy shit. Even now while trying to maintain my current weight on 48s I'm having high carb/sugar refeeds, and still losing weight.
Daily check-inSW: 75.9 kg / CW: 74.2 / BMI: 27.3 / Fasting time: 44h09 so farI'm going to follow everyone's advice and stop at 96h, eat one keto meal (already did my grocery shopping: tuna avocado cucumber tomatoes arugula romaine peaches salmon frozen vegetable mix) and restart doing 96h of fasting. Let's make it bros
>>60002993Yeah fair. It's only my 3rd refeed this Thursday(and hopefully another 5kg down).I probably won't reconsider a bit of ice cream on refeeds, but I'll be more mindful of my goals. Weight loss rate probably will slow down
>>60003040Doesn't keto disallow fruits and certain vegetables?
>>60003178Or just don't pay attention to the keto fundamentalists and eat what you planned. It's all good and healthy stuff.
>>60003202I'll do that. Thanks anon
Do I need supplements? I weigh 135 kg, am 1m 80. I eat 1 meal a day (something small) and drink water, white/green tea all day long. Been doing this for a few days. Am I doing it right? I stopped smoking tabacco/weed 1 month ago want to change my life. Tips are welcome.
>>59995181Debunked x1000. If you're fat, you can gain plenty of lean mass on a deficit.
>>60003287>Do I need supplements? >I eat 1 meal a dayNo, you don't need supplements. > white/green tea all day longTry to drop tea out so you get more benefits from fasting. You probably have aged your skin due to obesity. It's a good idea to do clean water fasting to repair some of that damage.
18 hours in, going for 20 now
>>59999505>5'11 at 170 and looks like shit >doesn't mention any form of liftingyou have no muscle mass bruh, start lifting
>>60002826Processed sweets give me the shits so I cut them out.
>>60003351So, the green tea benefits are a lie? I will just drink plain water then. Thanks for the info!
I'm nearing the end of my third day. I feel completely fine but I haven't been supplementing electrolytes or anything. I'm just drinking regular water.I planned on stopping tomorrow because I assumed I'd feel like shit by this point, but I don't so I figure I may as well keep going. Should I start the snake juice now? Is there a quick and dirty way I can jank something good enough together with random kitchen supplied? I can't make it to a store until tomorrow afternoon.
>>60003664It might spike cortisol or something. It's really better to just drink water and nothing else. You risk not losing any possible benefits if you drop tea out. If you are able to I'd recommend stepping up the fasting game and do 2-3 day fasts. You weigh so much you will literally melt away doing 2-3 day fasts.
>>59995025>I do best with very long fasts rather than rolling 96sHow did you obtain this knowledge and still have fat left?
>>60003853I try 24 hours now. I am looking up to make this snake juice. Or is it not needed? I have the feeling my body has enough stuff to survive on :p
>>60002122Mindset, I quit smoking weed. The benefits are there and you notice it very fast.
>>60003339>muh convert fat into musclegood luck anon.
>>60002991you're drinking it too fast.
>>60003905Anons here are too neurotic on snake juice. I watched the white fasting doctor on Youtube say people like to do a month long fasts with plain water with no supplements. Most anons here listen to the screaming retard instead of doctors. You don't need any juice for short fasts like 1-3 days
>>60003968I get headaches after a day without it so w/e
>>60003960How fast should I drink it? I usually just have a cup of it when I have a headache or feel like shit
>>60003982Headache from losing water weight
>>60003968I got a 5 days long keto flu with massive headaches after a meme 48 fast. Some people can handle it better, some worse, in any case having a bottle of snek around will definitely not hurt.
>>60004008okay snake juice makes it go away. water doesnt so eh
>>60003968I’m on day 6 and it’s the 3rd day I’ve not drunk the daily recommended amount of snake juice lolYesterday I had about half what’s recommended, it just tastes like shit
>>60004019>>60004021>>60004045Maybe it's about your storage of electrolytes. I have done 11 days with plain water and had nothing besides the usual water weight headache on day 1. Maybe I have eaten more micronootrients than (you)
>>60003040>>60003076>>60003178>>60003202>>60003249Keto allow fruits and you'll be in ketosis if you stay under 50g of net carbs.Don't listen to broscientists!
>>60003351Except green tea wont break your fast.
Does eating my boogers count?
Anyone have experience with only eating 800 calories a day?I'm fat and wanna lose as much weight as possible.
>>60004205Then actually fast and don't eat every day
>>60004116I dont know the headache was like my first or second time fasting so maybe id be good now
>>60004205Fasting is literally eating or not eating, no room for mistakes. If you're hungry, eat according to your tdee and macros. If fasting, fucking fast. That's it. Eating like a woman trying a new meme diet will inevitably end in failure.
coffee all day or water here and there?
>>60004402The DR who proved fasting works literally recommends fasting as well as eating 800 calories. Fucking retard.
>>60004227I can do 16:8 but I always fuck up.This seems way easier.
>>60004192>What is boogers?Mucin>What is mucin?High molecular weight, heavily glycosylated proteins (glycoconjugates)>Will it break my fast?I don't know how much mucine you're eating, but some people believe staying under 50 kcals won't break your fastIn short, just use toilet paper
>>60004449new research new ideas have fun wrecking your metabolism and feeling constantly hungry with that 800 calorie diet retard
>>60004409Coffee is diuretic, drink both of them!Some people believe it breaks your fast, I believe it makes everything more tolerable and if you're fasting for weight loss instead of medical benefits you'll lose even more weight with coffee.
Should I even do cardio or weight train if I've decided to just stop eating for as long as possible. I'm talking about weeks here
>>59995098Do you become fat then do 50 days of fast just to get fat again??
>>60004205Its a lot easier to eat 0 calories in a day than to eat 800 in a day. FAST
>>60004524ill keep the 2-3 cups per day then and some water then. thanks for confirming my suspisions
>>60004689agreed, youll be hungry and craving food all day
>>60004449Then eat your 800 calories, starve and relapse with 3 pizzas and 12,000 calories moron
>>60004654No. I’ve never regained more than water weight after a fast. It’s more of a test of my self control, I’m confident I won’t gain back any weight when I’m done.
>>60003968I'm on day 19 and I literally drank almost 0 electrolytes today and feel better than yesterday. Generally I quite like the salty taste of the brew but yesterday I must have overdone the sodium and felt like utter shit. I dropped a lot of water overnight somehow and drank way less water generally today. Just wasn't thirsty.Since the hunger pangs were really bad I decided to just lick some salt and it must have fucked my elec. balance up. Ultimately just listen to your body and don't consume shit just because people here advise it. I used to do 3 day fasts years ago and never used electrolytes beyond a bit of sodium.
A bit of a dumb question but does the type of water I'm drinking affect my electrolytes? Some brands of bottled water have literally twice the amount of minerals than others. I understand the amount is minimal though.
>day 13/14 >just had the meat delivery from local farm >20 lbs of meat in freezer >sirloins, ribeyes, flatirons, roasts >got some lamb and eggs too >tfw
I can't finish my refeed in one sitting. It's impossible.It's 12oz salmon, 6oz feta, 6oz spinach, ACV/olive oil dressing in a salad. A cup of kefir, a few forkfuls of saeurkraut and a protein/nutrient shake. The shake I can chug but the salad just won't let me win.
>>60005423Salads are just empty vitamins anyway
>>60005493That's not a thing, stupid.
Can someone give me a basic list of the best refeed foods or is it as simple asAvoid carbs and sugar
>>60005540I personally don't mind carbs since I'm not doing this as keto, so I go for kefir and slowly introduce good protein and the rest of my meal. Most people here recommended broth.
>Lift>Eat 4000+ calories>Fast next day>Feel my metabolism going ham on my body fat
>>59994809I'm on day 2 of 40. I feel pretty good actually.Any recommendation?
fat fuck here. looking to do that 3 day fast with "snake juice" and refill repeat. What am i in for? Im looking to do some cardio on a exercise bike when fasting and do i just eat tons of protein/nutrients on the 4th day? Im not looking to gain or be super fit, i just wanna cut the weight so i have self confidence and an excuse not to get fat again so after the initial weight loss I can actually be motivated to watch what i eat and exercise.
>>60004003Literally make a 2L bottle and just sip it through the day when you feel thirsty. If you drink other stuff then sip more to balance it out.
>>60005658Get a good book to read
>Artificial sweeteners raise insulin via cephalic phaseFirstly: big if true, needs better proofs. Secondly: if you raise insulin in the absence of carbohydrate intake, doesn't that mean glucagon must also rise to regulate your blood sugar? Insulin is fat storing and blood sugar lowering, glucagon is fat releasing and blood sugar raising, it should cancel out, no?
just ran my first mile in about a year while fasted. 10 minute pace. Feeling good
>>60005814Just drink water and black coffee, don't try to cheat the system
Americans will start on a keto diet, eat "keto bread", "keto tortilla wraps", "keto chocolate", shitty sweeteners, deep fried butter, drink coffee with coconut oil, never stop eating industrialized overprocesssed stuff and then say lowcarb fruits and veggies are bad for your health.>>60005423Just eat it, faggot
>>60005838I'm not discussing this for myself, I just don't think I've ever heard glucagon discussed in these threads. I don't even drink coffee on a fast since I will not sleep if I do.
>>60005268What state anon?
>>60005891>Just eat it, faggot
>>60005423>feta>kefir>sauerkraut>protein shakeAre you a fucking idiot mixing so much fermented food and dairy? you're either going to feel sick or shit like a garden hose
>>60005941If you can't eat like a sumo wrestler you're ngmi>>60005973Fermented stuff is great on refeeds, it's benefical to your guts.Kefir is highly fermented and lacks of lactosis, feta is made with goats milk (easily digestible, even tho it contais a little bit of lactosis)i don't know about his protein shake
>>60005973can american bodies really not handle normal food?

>>60006173Thank you, fren!
>>60005973I feel great and shit fine.>>60006138Usually after I lift I can eat the remainder. So I have around a 3 hour window on refeed days. Not the worst thing I guess. I'm going to start doing more cardio on fasting days, maybe that'll help.Protein shake is avocado oil and water based.
>>59995098Won't your body pack on fat right after finishing? Isn't rolling 72s much better for keeping the weight off after ending the fast? Either way, good luck bro.
>>60002826i have 1 Chocolate Bar(a snickers most of the time) when having my 48/72 refeed meal. Thats 200kcal and 1/20 of my meal in calories
>>60006258In what way? I will be refeeding steadily. People often overeat after an extended fast and gain back a ton of weight, but that’s the only reason as far as I know
>>60006203All at once or through the day?
>>60006716Through the day. I don't like big omad meals, they make me tired.
Is cardio a meme
What lifting routine should I follow while fasting?I fasted for 5 days last time I was dieting weight and it went okay, except I felt like death while lifting. My lifts were like 25% weaker and I got exhausted immediately after every set.
>>60007232Why the fuck would it be meme?>>60007648I do some of the basic compound lifts in 5x5 usually 20% less weight. And lots of running. Running's a victory. You could probably do calisthenics instead of lifting.
>>60002826There is no issue with eating a moderate treat on your refeeds if you're not going overboard and it helps with long term consistency. A few scoops of ice cream are fine.
my cheat day turned into a cheat month
>tfw three days in and don't feel the slightest bit different in terms of hunger, mood, energyWhen does the suffering begin?
>>60008168Fuck you Do better anon
Don’t care much about weights but would just body weight exercises and running in tandem with fasting be beneficial? I’m almost back to my weight I want to be. Always very lean so any suggestions? I’ve got like 5 pounds to go
>>60008313Yes it's beneficial but It's difficult to maintain intensity and volume.
>>60008177if you were already keto-adapted, that's why if you were previously eating carbs, your body is burning off the last of the glycogen, expect a rough patch as it switches over to fat-burning >>60008168a-anon why...
>>60008354Ok. Thank you
>>59994809Fasting is gay.
>>60008877Perfect for me then!
I think fasting and lifting have cured my insomnia. It's 4pm (I try to go to bed at 8-9) and I'm tired as shit after my refeed and lift session. Going to power through until a reasonable hour but I feel like this is going to be a great nights sleep.
>>59994809Im fasting right now till next monday for lent, is it ok to drink things like protein shakes, juice, etc? Or will I lose all positive effects of fasting by doing so?
>>60008967If it has calories you break your fast
>>59996393after my last 48Hungarian potato soupGot cravings but powered through after my last 72Chilli with beans, 4 eggs and some bread. Couldn't finish half of it. Got extremely """hungry""" 4 hours later and ate some junkfood... 4 hours later """hungry""" again, couldn't resist a big tub of B&J. I really need to avoid all carbs or I fuck myself.
I don't get dry fast. Two days and you're in a hospital probably?
>>59999911Sugar gets turned into glycogeen, this is done by binding single sugars with water.
Currently chewing on a bit of nicotine gum to keep the OMAD going
>>60008913melatonin (sleep hormone) release is directly tied to insulin, so if fasting improves your blood sugar, it is likely that you have fixed your cortisol and insulin curves. Great work!
you losers still make these memefast threads?
>>60009483Fasting/binging cycles are horrible for you. Don't fast unless you can keep refeeds disciplined. This is the primary reason I only do long fasts btw >>60009520No. Your body can pull water from cells. People have dry fasted up to 7 days and been fine. That being said, obviously it's pretty intense, you get dehydrated, etc. so it is not recommended for beginners.
>>60009979what should i be refeeding with?
At 220lbs, what is the expected weekly weightloss doing rolling 72s? I already lost 20lbs, so I'm not expected a massive initial decrease.
It looks like pure fasting might be too dangerous for me, it sends my body into a metabolic feedback loop, especially if I drink anything except snake juice. Caffeinated drinks send me into actual meth tweaking.Intermittent fasting with low-carb meals should be good, right?
>>60009996I stopped by binge habit by starting my refeed with a big chicken salad, all the salad stuff (lettuce and Cucumber particularly) fills me up quite a bit, almost like lining your stomach before the main bit of my re feed (cheese omelette and beef).
So why are you guys using Zero ? What does it offer ? I don't get it.
>>60010538it burns the calories for you retard
>>60010538I'm not because it looks like it offers basically nothing.
Breaking my 96hr fast today. Going into a 72 tomorrow. Down 4.4 kg so far.
>>60006201If only you knew how bad things really are
>>60006203Why do you guys eat so fucking much when you break the fast? Aren't you trying to lose weight?Piece of lean meat, baked potato with the skin, maybe a yogurt, back on the horse.
>>59994809Just finished 48 hours dryHow do you literally go any longer than this? i felt like I would have killed someone for a tiny little drink.
>>59998464Keep at it and you'll stop craving all the shitty foods.
>>60004514>Hurr durr don't wreck your metabolism by eating little>implying eating literally nothing for 96 hours would be any better.
>>60004774>Willpower this shitty.
>>600107702500kcal would be a lot if you didn't burn like 4000+ fasting for a few days lmao. Refeeeding with fewer calories is just a little bonus weight loss if you can sustain it. Fasting is already a super quick weight loss process there is no need to eat lighter unless you're not losing weight fast enough
>>60010761Zero burns calories for you. It also keeps your electrolytes up.
>>60010770People say fasting then eating TDEE on refeeds doesn't crash your metabolism like calorie restriction does. I don't know what's true.
I used to look in the mirror think:>I've gotta do something. I hope I can get shredded one day.Now I look in the mirror and think:>It's just a matter of time.Anyone else know this feel?>>60010751Keep it up anon.>>60010538Just use excel and a watch.>>60010018Varies per person, especially when you consider our activity level. Should be similar to my 48s, though.>>60008967Lentlets are so fucking stupid.>>60008913Nice work anon.>>60008177If you've been rolling for a while, you might have gotten used to it.>>60008168It happens to the best of us, don't give up.>>60007648Lift on refeed days.>>60008368I've been eating carb-heavy refeeds on 48s and then going to the gym a few hours later. By midnight, my keto strips are really dark. As Cole says, you can have some carbs and then blast through them to get back into keto fast.
Lads I want those JKush abs but I've never fasted beyond OMAD before.I'm working out in some way tomorrow thru Sat. How plausible is a Sunday dinner - Thurs dinner 96 to start out? That's peak length for benefits, right?I have salt and NoSalt. I also have epsom salt and baking soda. Hell I even have lemons in the back yard. Note: probably irrelevant but black coffee will be part of it. I'm trying to cut back and might actually reduce during the fast once it gets rolling.
What's that weird dull feeling you get in the stomach and just above it while fasting?I wouldn't say it was hunger pains. Is this what ketosis feels like?
>52 hours in>caved in like the faggot I am and had a bowl of cereal>shat it all out literally 1 hour laterHow bad did I fuck up?
Is creatine okay to take whilst fasting?
>>60011532Eat a proper refeed and start again NOW.Good luck anon.>>60011538Yes, but if you're starting it, your weight is gonna shoot up due to the water retention. You'll still be losing fat, but the scale won't tell you that.
>>60011577good shit, I'm lifting every other day so losing the creatine would blow
>>60011601Yeah, exactly what I did.Look at >>60011178When I hit 175 and started lifting again, the creatine messed with my progress a bit.
Don't take testosterone shots while fasting, it will spike your metabolism.
Is there a reason to fast if I'm not fat at all? I heard that there were some benefits to it, but I couldn't find much info on it. Could it be benificial in terms of mental fortitude?
>>60011705Not unless you're unhappy with your skin or something.
>>60011705Discipline and autophagy, but if you don't have much body fat 1 big meal every other day to maintain weight, or maybe even higher meal frequency and volume to gain, will suffice. You can do longer fasts if you want but monitor yourself closely so you don't end up hurting yourself
>>60008967yeah its ok. you can also eat ice cream too since its technically not solid food
>>60008967Better stick to drinking cum you dumb faggot
>>60011787>disciplineUnless you're some kind of masochist, this is pointless. Discipline is good but being disciplined for the sake of it is retarded. If you're not fat, don't have loose skin, and don't feel a real need to fast but are interested in it anyways, chances are you're probably fine.
>>60011836>Discipline is good but being disciplined for the sake of it is retarded.what?
>>60011836You're never going to make it
>>60011874My point is, why would you fast for discipline when you're not fat, you could do something else that requires discipline that is an immediate boon to your life instead.
Thoughts on EC stack during rolling 48s?
>>60011910Well, anon, in the catholic tradition fasting is done during the 40 days before easter, which happens to be now. If I'm not mistaken this is generally done to ameliorate ones discipline. But if we were to take fasting out of its religious context and look for something else that requires discipline, what would you recommend?
>>60012094>what would you recommend?Weightlifting?Learning a skill?Getting promoted at your job?
>>60012018not worth doing at all, body is already under stress without the added stimulants thrown into the mix.
How come I’m not losing weight anymore? I’m still super fat but I lost 20 pounds in a month or so, but after the first week of Feb I’ve lost one pound from then to now. I’m not even exceeding my TDEE. I’m neet but I do cardio daily (don’t want to get bulk) and drink lots of water. Rolling 72s btw
>>60012217>over 3 weeks of no progress on rolling 72s>still fatEither you're cheating, or you're holding shitloads of water
>>60012217Multivitamins? Your body just takes to water?
Does anyone have advice with fasting and regular sauna usage? I've been curious about snake juice and sauna to help retain some salt. Sometimes I end up dehydrated and I find myself chugging water all day every day.I know I need to start incorporating snake juice into my diet but how much more should I be taking considering I sweat like a mofo?
>>60012278You may actually want to decrease the amount of water you're drinking.>>60012217>>60012274Water always helps the blood deliver nutrients more easily so your metabolism is going to slow because why try harder when you're already compensating?
>>60012274I’m not eating anything between refeeds and according to lose it I’m not exceeding 1800 calories. I did pig out for super bowl Sunday but I was able to lose 3 pounds after that but afterwards that stopped. How do I know how much water weight I’m holding?
>>59995839>diet soda spikes insulinplease tell me this is fake
>>60012466All food spikes insulin
>>60012465How much do you piss every day?
>tfw 72 ends tomorrow morning and I'm already fantasizing about making my baked chicken and cheese corn tortilla taquitosI feel like I'm an hour away from becoming White Goodman-tier and just masturbating to the thought of food.
Whenever I finish a fast whatever food I happen to eat seems to run right through me. Should I be eating foods high in fiber when I refeed?
>>60012466If it wasn’t fake drinking diet soda would cause hypoglycemic shock. Are people dropping into comas from diet soda?
>>60012589Yes if their metabolism was high enough. I, through some major mistakes to my health, once got my metabolism so high that a 50mg CBD capsule (fasting, empty stomach) was hitting me like I snorted a Xanax.
>>60012589uh that actually makes sense
>>60012443Maybe I’ll try that. >>60012520I go like 3 times a day
>>60012522heh, my 14 day ends tomorrow, I know this feel making my grocery list now, feels good
im too drunk to tast this chicken
>>60012573this happens to me too. what i do is i eat a bowl of rice a few hours before doing my actual refeed and i don't have any problems. not ideal if you want to focus on omad, but a 4 hour eating window isn't going to matter much if you're doing rolling fasts
>>60012663Will try thanks for your input
>>60012573Low-carb and high fiber does help.
Can I break my fast with a 1/2 beef burger from a takeaway if I plan on lifting/cardio afterwards? I’m 6’1, 208lbs and on my first 72 hour fast. Idk why but I’m craving a burger all of a sudden
>>60012781You can break with whatever you want, but keep it under control or else you're going to fall back into bad habits
>>60012845While true, carb-heavy meals should be eaten more slowly while keto is a little safer.
Gents, I'm doing rolling 72s for Lent but kinda worried about the risk of gallstones while fasting. Any tips for avoiding the choleric Jew?
>>60013261Well there's no possible way you get that many unless you refuse to drink water or drink a whole bunch of caffeine and try to supercharge your metabolism. Everyone gets one eventually.
>>60013261someone here got them from too many energy drinks, the taurine combined with the oxalics from leafy greens and caffeine and made stones. If you are ingesting lots of oxalic based foods, mix them with cream as our ancestors did.
>>59994809Does adding milk to coffee break your fast? I use a zero-calorie sweetener but I really want a tiny bit of milk
hi friends, started a 36 hour fast a while ago. for anyone that isn't using amphetamines or similar (wellbutrin (+naltrexone)), when does the hunger go away? would a tylenol help lmao
>>60012845So if I ate a 1/2 cheeseburger and chips then did weights and my bike machine, would that be bad? Will I put on weight? Will I not lose as much as i could?
Is snake juice really just water with Himalayan salt and potassium chloride? Need to make sure I have everything. I just mixed comments
>>60013651>Will I not lose as much as i could?Obviously. Don't do mental gymnastics to justify eating; control yourself and you'll feel fine soon enough.
going for a good ol 14 day 7 or 8 longest 6'3 230 25might get down to 210 by the end
>>60013415just sit with it "the trick, is not minding that it hurts" it goes away dont take pills to make it stop just read your kjv bible >>60013810yes you can also put in some magnesium
>>60013261take some lemon juiceacv baking soda ? dont have any proof to support this claim
>>60012368how should we know? dry fast for 3 days and sauna until you pass out or become delirious. find your upper limit.
>>60012217fast longer eat less and less frequently if youre a fatty fat fat you shouldnt be eating at all
>>59994809tfw i've been intermittent fasting my whole life without realizing it
