yes thatís exactly what iím trying to do

i am where i want to be, doing sort of what i want to be doing. i have a decent steady job lined up. but i am super stressed because i donít have enough money to live meagerly from this minute until ~2-3 weeks from now when i start getting paid regularly again.

i know there are people itt that can help me without really any change in their life (imo) and thatís why i find it frustrating.

in full disclosure: i borrowed tree fiddy from JMurd last month and repaid it as agreed, i think he would agree.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

and to further add to my ďmystiqueĒ or whatever you want to term it

spending thousands of hours playing poker and being in casinos has made me pretty damn self-aware and aware of others

i can assure you i can bed a significantly high percentile of women aged 21-50 on the strip, itís GLARINGLY obv but i never do anything

see i havenít been on a date since 2016 because iíve needed to work on my own s*** instead so anything would just have likely been physical relations, which as i stated before has never been a priority

Any whom, did a seven day fast, beating my career best by 2 days. Fasting disciples over sell how easy it is. Or else, I'm just a pathetic weakling with a little girly heart.

True, it is not anywhere close to as bad as it sounds. Most of the time, I felt fine. But I did have times everyday where I felt pretty unpleasant. Usually upon waking up.

This was easily worth the benefits.

I did experience a level of clarity and focus. It wasn't transcendent, but I found that I had little to no interest in TV and stuff. I watched one episode of Rick and Morty, which I enjoy, and I couldn't wait for it to be over.

Spent almost all of my time productively. Line shopping. Making spread sheets. Long meditation sessions. Some poker. Watching informational videos. For whatever reason, I felt averse to reading.

Was able to do light workouts every day, but def. had less energy for them.

Towards the end of day seven, I played some poker and this douchey kid was viciously insulting this nice, soft spoken guy who had done nothing wrong other than beat him. Lost my temper for the first time in maybe a year and managed to get him thrown out while berating him myself. I called him a fing ****** as he walked away, which I quickly felt bad about in case anyone was gay. It just seemed like the generic insult that would most bother this guy. I was so angry that my razor sharp wit evaporated and I was just calling him stuff. Anyway, I guess my T was spiking or something, and bullying triggers me.

Now weaning back with high fat, low protein and low carb and low calories. This should, in theory, continue the process of autophagy, ensuring that I never age, get sick or die and will probably gain the ability to travel through time and solve ancient mysteries. Today: one large avocado, olive oil, balsamic, about 10 macadamias and 2 squares of 80% dark chocolate. Tomorrow, larger amounts of the same.

Then, I'm going to eat a Mexican restaurant and everyone in it. While I haven't felt physically deprived very much, I REALLY miss delicious foods and have had food dreams that are as lurid as any sex dream. The difference being, I can easily realize them.
Fasting turns you into Homer, got it thanks.

Never understood the whole fasting thing. I get caloric restriction and whatnot but depriving your body/brain of nutrients seems to be -EV

If you have much fat at all, you really don't need food. A really big fatso in Scotland went over a year without food.

I found a 4 minute video by an MD on why fasting is good, apart from weight loss. (He neglects the time travel part.)

As others have mentioned itt it somewhat helps with mitigating eating poorly the night/day before. But it also helps in mitigating the _eating because I'm bored_ issue which is still not good even if the snack is healthy.

I've never done more than a 24hr fast but sometimes implement a 16/8 schedule where I only eat noon-8pm.

Most recently I've started adding in fasted cycling/running where I won't intake calories for the first 3hrs/2hrs accordingly. It's supposed to help your body use fat stores for energy and not just glucose, which is good for endurance stuff. Probably pseudoscience, but it makes me feel like I'm trying something.

Let me be clear:

I totally get IF and have read some Harvard med stuff on the benefits and implementation. They recommended a ďcircadian rhythmĒ fast iirc. Something about 7a-3p.

What I donít understand is people not eating for several days at a time. Excluding religious reasons of course

Did you not read his first post? He is approaching time travel capabilities.

Make fun of him now, but when he comes up with the winning powerball numbers he will be the one laughing.

Homer has now threatened me via text because I won't give him money. Filing a police report and a restraining order, I suggest the rest of you whom he has contacted do the same.

Does he know where you live/how to figure it out? If not, police report and restraining order are probably overkill

If you know how you die, your life would suck. You'd live in constant thought of how to stop it.

Just go back 50 years, spin up like $10 in sports betting to like 1MM and put all the money in like Apple or some other stock you know does well and then come back and cash out your billions

Well. I'm not going to spam the threat with endless videos and links. After this.

However, I have studied this a lot and relied mostly on MDs and research, and only a little bit on internet whack jobs.

There is not really much doubt that fasting promotes autophagy and that it has some benefits. Cognitive or neurological stuff is the most well established. Like Alzheimer's prevention.

"According to research conducted by neuroscientist Mark Mattson and others, cutting your energy intake by fasting several days a week might help your brain ward off neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s while at the same time improving memory and mood."

https://www.johnshopkinshealthreview...its-to-fasting

They think it could help with a bunch of other stuff. Aging, cancer, diabeetus.

I've gotten my mom into it because I'd feel kinda bad about tossing her onto the streets if she gets Alzheimer's.

Of course, you lose weight.

There seems to be a compelling case that you will be fine with longer fasts, especially if you are even a bit overweight. For one thing, lots of people are doing it and I've not heard many horror stories.

I'd also submit that there could be a reason that fasting pops up in so many religious practices. Plato and Pythagoras both fasted too.

I've seen a range of opinions on how long you should fast. Some say that you get diminishing returns after 24 hours so there is no reason to go longer. Others say the real magic doesn't begin until after 7 days.

Everyone says, of course, listen to your body. If you start feeling very bad, eat. I didn't feel totally terrible, but after my avocado day, I felt kinda bad. So I just had a won ton soup. Tasted pretty, pretty good and I feel better.

Here is another video on the physiology of it, though it doesn't discuss autophagy.
