Was fasting a meme afterall?
what do you want to discuss?
It actually works if you fucking do it. There is nothing to discuss. It just works. Don't want to do it? Then don't expect results. It does in fact work I have done it but the thing is it will make you lose weight and to me this goes completely against gaining to get stronger so its hard.
It was quite tragic really. They kept pushing the boundaries by doing longer and longer fasts. Eventually they all starved to death
IST is dead
Everyone but you already made it, should have worked harder.
Fast is cico just you retards dont know it
care to explain?
>eat significantly less than usual (calories in)
>normal metabolism causes weight loss due to caloric deficit (calories out)
not much to discuss really, its as simple as just eat less bro
who said anything about weight loss?
Literally everybody knows that. Fasting works because you eat less times in a day so you are less prone to eat random shit.
exactly this. I do one meal a day, of anything whether that be garbage or chicken and a potato. dont count calories or macros and ive lost 80lbs (335lb to 255lbs)
It is a part of it but not the whole thing.
I fast for autophagy, the anti-inflammatory effect and because it makes me feel good, not for weight control.
The human body evolved health-enhancing processes which only activate in a fasted state. Feast and famine is the natural way of eating, not this 4 square meals and snacks inbetween bullshit that capitalism came up with.
Digesting food 24/7 is making you weak.
autophagy and anti inflammatory? redpill me i already OMAD but i didnt know about tht
We're into the autumn so all the fad diet followers are happily gorging themselves again.
You have to wait until next spring before they all start panicking over how fat they've become.
bro what do you need a general for? just dont eat
Nobody ever made the god damn threads and I got tired of doing it
Thank you for your service. You can rest easy now.
thinspo on IST is where the anorexics hang out now
I suppose once you understand the basics of fasting, you don't really need a general for it anymore. That being said, it would be good to have one for people who are new to fasting.
I used to do /fast/. It really works, I can’t deny it for a second. The problem is I was always so exhausted and light headed. “B-but the snake j-juice!”. No. I’m not doing all that. I know Reddit still has a page for that if you’re interested.
For me I just realized lifting works better. I lift 5-6 times a week. Yeah, it’s putting in the hard work, going to gym in the rain or waking up on my day off just to gym. And dieting of course too. But lifting paired with CICO, I’m not ever light headed or super tired.
lifting + OMAD is really the best way to do it.
You get the increase in HGH and fat burning, without the weakness if you eat before the gym. Can do a 48 hour fast if you're on a rest day too.
This is what I do. IF is just caloric restriction on easy mode. I never feel better or train harder than when I'm doing OMAD/20:4 or thereabouts. Like so many other things (keto) people turn it into a cult and give it a shit name.
I was a proponent until I developed reactive hypoglycemia
Don’t forget moisturiser
nothing is left to discuss on IST. It's all the same shitposts over and over again
Don't tell this anyone Anon, but I do 7 days fast before a long diet i.e. >3 months to reset my palate and hunger system, after that, I just do a simple dairy, meat, and veggie diet.
Been OMAD fasting for a week now, the hunger is gone but the NEED to eat is still there and strong as fuck, this shit literally an addiction.
Ketolards are the ones advocating for an extreme diet like fasting you retard.
I've been fasting for ~30 now and my heart just started racing when I scrolled through IST.
I wanna go to sleep but I want to watch UFC.
i fast every sunday
>‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’
bruh Sunday is the feast day
It's not a meme, it saved me. After almost 30 years it's the only diet that has worked for me and I am finally making progress for the first time. The problem is it's so simple there just isn't much to talk about. Don't eat. There isn't really any wiggle room beyond just snake juice or whatever meme vitamins. It was nice having it as a a secondary version of /fat/ but it just doesn't have any room to grow.
I've been doing keto but plateaued. Going to start 16/8 intermittent fasting. And be more lenient when I socially eat. I won't be an autist like I have been.
It goes through periods of being dead for a while. I mean, what's there to talk about? You don't eat and you drink snake juice. It's not exactly a super interesting subject.
I'm done with rolling 72s and I'm OMAD now. I haven't felt hunger in over a month. Idk what else there is to talk about.
fasting is retarded
all the benefits come from your body thinking you are dying, but now it's malnourished and dying
if I wanted my body to think I was dying I could do it 100 better ways than starving it.
also I am not and never have been or will be, so that is not a real benefit
what did he mean by this?
Your body is malnourished while fasting unless you're already malnourished.
Your body doesn't think " it's dying" lol, great mom posting
You're right, it doesn't think it's dying, it KNOWS it's dying.
In the last sentence I skipped typing the word fat. It's supposed to read
>also I am not fat and never have been or will be, so that is not a real benefit
Everyone who does fasting eventually gets uncontrollable hunger and stops fasting
You cant defeat your bodies inbuilt system
Just eat in moderation and stop being autistic about it
principle > moderation
Nobody can stick to it mate, simple as.
Every single person I know who does any kind of fasting ends up rubber-banding back like CRAZY
Even if successfully fast (Intermittently) or doing 24-72 hour fasts, even if you do this for months/years, eventually your body will fight against you and cause you to start binging like crazy because it thinks you're going to die, your body will make you develop mental illnesses and start binge eating disorder shit
And thats for the LUCKY ones, the unlucky ones develop full blown anorexia and die
and to top it off
My grandparents all lived until their mid 90s and never fasted, they ate multiple meals a day, so I dont see why the fuck id fast for "muh health and longevity"
All the old fucks in my family have health and longevity and never fast
This fasting BS comes from inverted morality. It's the same essence as saying motor oils ( aka seed oils ) are heart healthy.
In reality the best thing you could do for your body is 3 meals a day each with animal protein and fat.
3 meals a day is a meme made up for adverts, brainlet
>develop full blown anorexia
i'd rather be anorexic than obese tbh
>i'd rather be anorexic than obese tbh
i unironically would prefer looking like that than looking like a pig
fuck off you yid bastard
fatty logic detected
A video on the benefits of Fasting:
i only fast during ramadan ya akhi
Yeah and Muslims are all fat cunts
So much for fasting
All it does is make you want to eat more later in the future, and your body makes you eat MORE than you would have originally eaten
You don't know shit, I just broke a 4 day fast. Ate one burger and felt completely full and satisfied with no further cravings throughout the entire day. Fasting has broken my cravings and for the first time in my life I can so no to bad food. After a month and a half of omad and fasting I have more willpower than I had in the last 30 years.
yeah, shows how much you have researched...
your stomach capacity literally shrinks and you cant even eat as much if you fast regularly. just fast 48 hours eat whatever you want (you wont be able to eat much) and then do another 48 hours. and its wayy easier to not have to worry about macros, calories, types of food. just sit back and relax and drink some water.
This, I fasted for 7 days, 8 times so far, I can't even eat a whole pizza in one sitting anymore
>if you don't eat all day you will get fat
Don't question it, these are the same people who are quick to call fasting ketolard shit despite me refeeding with high carbs if not nothing but carbs at times with zero consequences. I don't know who hurt these people or why they come into these threads to spread misinformation that contradicts even basic logic backed by science, my personal theory is they're losing weight like, only one pound of fat a month while we're losing 20 in two to three and they're just angry we're going faster and using short cuts they're unwilling to because they think it's a race for some reason.
i hate fad diets so much its unreal
What fad diet would that be? Couldn't be fasting since it's been practiced worldwide since ancient times.
Haters out in full force
I've unironically been doing IF for the past 5 years or so. Granted there's been days during those years where I ate outside of the allotte period but have been very consistent with it overall. It's good imo it doesn't inhibit my growth the only thing that sabotages me is myself when I decide to stop lifting for a month because of some depression or other. During that time fasting is even more important as it ensures I don't become American
I miss /fast/ too man, was good for motivation
I will fast today
just going to say that with OMAD everyday except thursday and friday iv gon from 290 to 265 in 2 months so fuck you fasting is working for me
What do you eat for OMAD?
You could have done that in one by just doing an extended fast.
I miss typed meant to say i OMAD everyday except on Thursday and Friday i don't eat anything at all
Lent isn't for like five more months still bro.
i ended up losing way more lean mass than bodyfat%
> Nutrient timing cucks the long term faster.
Fasting is great short term for a quick cut as long as you hit you calorie goal when you break fast, but long term your body can have issues taking in past a certain amount of protein in a single sitting without turning it into glucose and urea.
Bunch of adrenaline junkies who always end up back at skinnyfat.
