I think it's good to fast just so you know how it feels.Maybe so. I just find that restricting food intake to 11am-7pm is relatively easy. Big late breakfast/lunch and a solid dinner will hold me.
The hardest part is staying out of the kitchen at midnight...but that's always been the problem anyway.
I don’t get hungryI think it's good to fast just so you know how it feels.
I go into fight flight when I fast.
I couldn't teach when I fasted.
It really compromised my thinking.
I have a friend who just doesn't eat. It's like he forgets. It will be night time and he goes, "Oh, I didn't eat anything today."
You are lucky.I don’t get hungry
Until I start eating, then I can eat a lot
But instead of getting hungry, I get headaches
Like if I don’t eat anything until sometime after 3 in the afternoon, I get a pounding headache
I’m glad I’m not in one of those religions where you fast all day, or days, or a month
I don’t eat because I’m hungry, but that doesn’t mean I don’t eat for other reasonsYou are lucky.
Us fat people are thinking about food 24/7
This is why i wish i got Covid, losing my sense of taste would have been great to help cut weightI don’t eat because I’m hungry, but that doesn’t mean I don’t eat for other reasons
I mean, for nutrition, obviously
But I eat a lot when I’m stressed out, and my wife cooks and bakes all the time, so I eat because it tastes great
And sometimes, when I have a little of something sweet, it just opens the floodgates for more and more and more sugar
So, yeah, not hunger, but other triggers that I need to manage
Cue hal post on manorexia
Different people have different reactions.They also constipate you and make you feel like absolute dog sh!t
And that's before the addiction
I do the first two, but haven't started teh ice baths yetDifferent people have different reactions.
I've seen people go crazy on them.
I get super chill.
Only 10% of the population will have addiction issues.
An addictive personality is a gift.
Take up weight lifting, guitar, and ice baths and make the world your oyster.
I think those are such good health building behaviors.Joe rogan loves them
Gotta be great for you
My problem with IF is that i gorge too hard when its feeding timeHe does it.
But he might have stopped.
You can get a lot of benefits of IF by lowering your calories a little
But if you like it, there is not reason not to do it.

I am an example of someone it doesn't work for
Using the old grandma maxim of "don't eat in between meals" is simple, and keeps calories down as well. If we want to Bro Science it up, we can call it "Periodic Intermediate Fasting"
