    It doesn't physically do shit. But it does affect your diet and might cause you to consume drugs like alcohol that heavily impair performance.

    Also, if you're lifting heavy you need to bw able to clear your head or you'll be leaving reps in the tank.

      I can feel it physically sap my energy
      I still lift as it's part of my routine but the mana just isn't there.
      I think atheists are wrong
      I think there's energy we can't see and only feel

            Because an imbalance in hormones and neurotransmitters is created. Some parts of the brain will shut down, other parts will be over-excited. This will propagate through the whole body.
            For example, alcoholics self-medicate to jump start the dead parts of the brain. Its not a conscious decision, but one can feel it. Obviously they will fail because alcohol is alcohol.

            I feel like it's extrasensory. I can run more when I feel inspired. I can do more.

            Because your brain dosent want to or some feedback between your brain body or hormones would just rather store it as fat because it's a basic survival mechanism for almost all advanced life that survived the CP extinction

              I would actually just rather not eat so I force myself to eat in order to keep up with the routine.
              The brain should know that only moving and improving can solve my situation as that is the reality.
              Depression is something deeper.
              There is no evolutionary pressure for depression.

                Can you provide the exact scientific data behind this?
                Personally I don't think the body wants to store calories as fat when depressed. It wants to get stronger to survive better. Cavemen didn't get depressed.

The discoveries our ancestors made and their evolutionary ability to climb the food chain and eventually build society is the reason modern humans can live like the dudes from walle and just mindlessly consume and act like they’re so intelligent because they watch YouTube videos

        And now we see the true motivation behind OP's post. What science? What science claims that lifting performance is determined by calories alone? Cite your sources.

          What science claims that lifting performance is determined by calories alone?

          Are you stupid? 0 calories in a system that uses calories for energy equals 0 Lift. It's a thermodynamic unit. There's literally no debating this. .. Like you honestly want a source stating that in order for a system to output usable energy it needs to have an energy source that can be converted into usable energy and so on and so forth until it's heat? That's just basic physics man. Go try starting your vehicle without Gasoline and see how far it gets you.

        Dumb take. There are hundreds if not thousands of metabolic processes going on in your body that can't be reduced to "burning calories." Fat people are far less energetic than fit people, despite consuming way more calories.

    Depression IS lack of vitality. They're one and the same. I can't give a "scientific" explanation, I can only speak from experience. When you're severely depressed, even doing basic physical and mental tasks like preparing food or taking a shower is painfully difficult. I believe that even on a molecular level, a depressed body lacks some form of energy that it needs to function properly. Psychomotor moronation is a well-documented symptom of depression.

    The only solution I've found is to maximize your "mana" by eating super clean, getting plenty of sunlight and exercise (especially mobility work, yoga for example), and having positive interactions with friends. What is your diet like? Do you get enough sunlight? Do you have chronic mobility problems in any of your joints?

      Depression cures numbered:
      1. Relentless sunbathing and time in nature to increase Vitamin D3 and normalize other cellular processes
      2. Eating a lot of meat to curb nutrient deficiencies and digestive issues
      3. Exercise, self-explanatory
      4. Fixing socially disturbed situations - Women need to feel safe and loved, Men need to feel proud and powerful

    prolonged stress(usually causing depression) causes increase of cortisol release through hpa axis. cortisol can affect your sleep, blood sugar etc.

    it does literally physically effect you. Dont listen to these idiots on fit saying depression isnt real. its very real. its very physically real. the brain isnt some magic thing and depression isnt either. stress and hormones causes disbalance. affecting your neurotransmitters and neurogenesis. changing your mood, feelings, memory ETC. however, no permanent damage. But during depression a lot of shit goes weird in the brain. even your occipital lobe can experience disturbances changing your vision.

    Serotonin activity regulates melatonin production (among others), which is important for metabolism and sleep, as well as hair health and sexual performance as a side effect.
    This is the reason so many people lost hair after Covid and why antidepressants can mess with sleep and sexual performance, but also sperm health markers.
