What is /fast/?
Fast is a thread for the discussion of intermittent fasting, fasting, water fasting, and dry fasting.

WHAT IS AUTOPHAGY?
It's when your body takes apart useless, shitty cells. (Cancer cells, cells with broken protein, acne, loose skin, etc)

HOW DO I SAFELY FAST?
take around 4700 mg of potassium per day max
2000 up to 3000 mg of sodium per day max
MIX THIS INTO AT LEAST A LITER OF WATER, sip it through the day. This will keep you hydrated.

HERES WHY YOU ARENT ACTUALLY HUNGRY IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN 8% BODYFAT
youtube.com/watch?v=dFT2IKmwyfg [Embed]

WHAT SHOULD MY FASTING ROUTINE LOOK LIKE?
If you're lean, 5:2!-- OMAD (one meal a day, 1-2 hour eating window) 5 days a week + 48 hour fast a week
If you're a fatass, FAST UNTIL YOU AREN'T.

WONT I GO INTO STARVATION MODE AND DIE?!
You don't have the willpower to fast to death. Now look down. See that large bulbous gut? That's food. Thousands and thousands of calories stored and ready to be consumed by your body.

WONT I LOSE MUSCLE?
This is the coolest part about fasting. Your body remains very anabolic when you fast.

ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5064803/
"Our results suggest that a fasting program in conjunction with resistance training can decrease fat mass, and maintain muscle mass in resistance-trained males."

The other source is only about intermittent fasting.

Fasting apart from intermittent fasting is not going to do you any good. To lose weight in a healthy, sustainable, long-term way you need exercise and a moderate caloric deficit (<1000kcal/day). Trying to fast yourself slim will cause health complications, loose skin requiring surgery, and you will end up skinny-fat because you will lose all your muscle before you lose any fat (study OP links to is ONLY for intermittent fasting).

Besides, what you need to change about your life as overweight is your habits. Habits take time to develop. You need to learn how to eat healthy and exercise daily.

Lose weight the right way. Don't fall for the fasting shills.

Fasting is backed up by medical research, and throughout history it has been a part of human life (voluntarily or involuntarily). Note: fasting =/= starving, you starve when you have no excess fat on your body.
Just calling Dr. Fung a fraudster without providing any proof is just useless; post something to support your claim or that invalidates his claims.
You can straight up pirate his book (like most people), also his interviews on youtube summarize his book. Fasting doesn't cost any money, as a matter of fact it saves you money.
I've been fasting for about 4 weeks now (3x per week for 36 hour periods - less than 20 calories - mostly from coffee or tea) and have not noticed any negative side effects - in fact my skin (I have mild body acne, keratosis pilaris, lichen sclerosus) has improved slightly as a result (anecdotally speaking, I'm not measuring anything strictly). I've also lost about 10 lbs in that time span. I eat as I normally would on feeding days (somewhere in the region of 2000-3000 calories).
Fasting works, fasting is easy as long as you aren't a compulsive eater, it's healthy if you have fat on your body, and humans/animals have been doing it for millions of years.

He's talking out of his ass out of sheer ego.

I use Dioralyte, it's a diarrhea powder you mix into your water, it doesn't have the perfect balance of electrolytes, it does have trace amounts of glucose (not enough to kick you out of keto for a significant amount of time, your body will use up the glucose pretty much immediately as you drink it) but the big plus side is it has natural flavouring, either blackcurrent or lemon flavour. Stops the shits, stops your headaches and heart palpitations, tastes nice, wont fuck your keto up. I'm going into the 6th day of my first fast on this stuff, seeing visible results and I feel pretty fucking good to be honest.

If you don't mind the risk of getting SLIGHTLY, and I do mean very slightly slower progress with your fat loss it's a great option as far as I can tell.

Depends how fat you are. If you’re extremely overweight and you lose a lot you will have lots of loose skin and require surgery to remove it. It doesn’t matter how you take the weight off. There have been some instances where dry fasting intermittently has helped tighten skin. Worth a try to see if it works for you.

Day six of a 19 day fast, wasn't planning on going so long but I'm coming to a deadline of a stupid bet I made to lose a certain amount of weight in 6 months and it's the only way I'm going to make it.

Otherwise fasting has saved my life. I started off bigger than boogie last year, my peak was 515lbs. Been doing a mix of Intermittent fasting and multi day fasting, usually 4 to 5 days fasting with one or two days eating. It is the only thing in 25 years that has gotten me to lose weight and keep it off. I am six months in and next month I am hoping to be breaking into the 300's.

We're all gonna make it, don't give up, no matter how bad you feel, no matter how badly you have fucked up. It can't be anywhere close to as bad as I have. If I have a chance to make it anyone can. Thank you Veeky Forums for being here, this place is the only thing that has kept me from checking out.

Not eating food isn't a fad and never will be.
don't have the willpower to eat at a caloric deficit.
I've already done that before and quit frankly why waste my time when I'm skinny and can enjoy food in large portions while helping out my body.

If you can't survive a day without eating you ain't shit and will never have the willpower. You have even less willpower than people who fast for religious reasons.

You really don't need to work out while fasting, an extended fast will chew the fat off your guts in no time at all. It's fucking crazy to realize this is possible, you can get the fat off you faster than any conventional cardio + dietary routine while you sit on your fat fucking ass and watch the fat disappear in real time (near enough)

Just relax, drink your snake juice and eventually you'll get lean. You don't even need to do an extended fast, obviously it's better for faster results but even a 6:2 fasting/refeed routine will still get you insane results. If you feel like you can go for the extended fast then fuck man, go for it if you think you have it in you to make it.

I'm in the same boat. Weight fluctuating between 79-81kg at 182cm/6ft. Measurements keep going down so I can only assume it's a shuffle of water retention and muscle growth.

Try buying spring water. Something I've learned from water fasting is that tap/purified/distilled water tastes funny because the water has been processed to ensure it's safe to drink. It tastes even worse when you try to make snake juice with it. Meanwhile, spring water is natural, clean water with mineral content that makes it taste better.

Alright update.
Start weight on Friday : 118lbs
Monday : 112 lbs
Wednesday : 107 lbs
I have two days left, unsure of what my weight will be in the final day since I don't own a scale (weigh myself at a gym)
Hopefully I'll lose at least 2 more pounds and be at 105. Will weigh myself on Monday of April to show what I gained from eating and water weight.

I hope everyone keeps up the good work.

I had been trying to get back into 20:4 IF for a while, but I kept getting serious hunger pains, and stomach aches that forced me to eat to alleviate. Yeserday I did it with no probblem, so I'm back on track to fo 20:4 IF, and hopefully do a couple 48 hour fasts every week or 2 to start shredding this body fat.

I was off 20:4 for 3 weeks cause of a single cheat day. I have realized I am not disciplined enough to allow cheat days, or cheat meals, so I'm never going to have one, as I managed a week or two of 20:4 before I failed.

But i want to go down to like 130lb. I drink like 6 liters of water used to skull black coffee when i got hungry. But i was worried about my teeth going yellow.
I only take liquid iodine when i fast. Unless i eat anything, then i take vitamin E, B and fish oil.

I think the problem is that i live with my parents and they are always buying snacks + dinner is my favorite part of the day cause i like to socialise with my family. I cant sit there for 30mins awkwardly with no food, and without not giving into the temptation.

I'd say as long as it takes until you're lean enough that moving onto the 5:2 plan in the OP would be recommended.

But I would have thought OMAW is probably more difficult than just straight fasting, cause you would have to keep going through the initial hunger phase evvery week.

alright so yesterday i was asking about lifting while on a fast. right now i just passed the end of day three; here's how my lifts went.
i did 3 sets of five instead of the usual 5x5. except for deadlift, which i always do one set of five and do a few reps at higher weight after a rest.
i went light on squat but completed the sets with a few grinders at the end
OHP i stayed at the same weight and my sets went relatively smoothly. i also made sure to rest a little bit longer between sets.
deadlift i went up in weight and crushed it. felt absolutely confident in my reps.

so at the end of day 3/beginning of day 4, i feel pretty decent. every once in i while i get hungry, but it isnt a crazy overpowering feeling. good luck everyone.

I heard about it from watching Thomas DeLauer's videos. He posted another one about what he drinks when fasting. He listed ACV with lemon, Zevio sparkling water, Coffee with Stevia, and Green Tea with Ginseng. He seems to know quite a lot about fasting, and lists a lot of the science behind why he consumes each one, with satiety increasing properties, to inflammation reduction, and slowing the digestive process to decrease spikes in blood sugar levels.

I wasn't sure how much of his advice was legit, cause I never see him mentioned on these threads, but it seems pretty legit to me.

I know, but the shit he says correlates with the information I see on /fast/ and r/fasting, which is why I wasn't sure about the legitimacy of the rest of his videos. I was planning on getting some Braggs ACV with the Mother cause of his videos.

In his video, he referenced a study, and lists the info in the description "Caffeine- Caffeine acts on the central nervous system and causes a release of the neurotransmitters dopamine and epinephrine - increases thermogenesis and fat oxidation. In one study, twelve healthy, normal weight men participated in a four-way crossover, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study. Treatments were administered as tablets of 500 mg Green Tea Extract, 400 mg tyrosine, 50 mg caffeine, or placebo. Results: Caffeine induced a thermogenic response of 6% above baseline compared to placebo and only caffeine was thermogenic in the given dose and caused no hemodynamic side effects"

In the video he mentiones that 50mg is low enough for the positive effects, without the negative effects. Can't remember what they were though.

16:8 low carb?
I'm currently doing OMAD, with a 2 hour eating window. Not because I want to lose weight, but because I want to experiment how to train under those conditions.

Normally I would recommend keeping carbs low, but currently eating lots of them, including about 100-150 grams of candy, during the eating window.

In my experience so far, reduced carbs work better, and unless you lift a lot you may want to reduce your eating window. With the above mentioned diet my volume (but not strength) is reduced.

Thomas DeLauer's
I checked his articles and they are basically good. Best thing is all the interesting research papers he found so you can read those instead to get a better picture.

After a while I noticed he tend to jump to conclusion and presume you can pick pieces here and there and still get the benefits from different parts. Biochemistry/endocrinology doesn't work that way.

So his modfied muscle sparing fast, even though interesting on paper, doesn't really make much sense when you look at how the body focus on one thing at a time. That's why diet with lots of small meals isn't comparable to fasting. Maybe it works for some but I doubt it works for me.
Sleep, Fast/Starve, Exercise, Digesting/Postprandial - all sets up entirely different processes in the body and you can't "mix & match".

After a few days of fasting, your body should start releasing adrenalin/epinephrine (+HGH and other changes) as a way to speed up fat metabolism and increase your performance so you can hunt/gather. So the stress may be due to that.

It could also be just hunger playing tricks on you and causing your stress.
Hunger is an emotion (like many others that guide our behaviour). Hunger can result in anger or anxiety. Whatever motivates to feed you. Your hunger-stress may feedback and cause your heart to race - aka psychosomatic.

I don't think it's a good idea since pickles are sour, eating them on an empty stomach could give you stomach aches. Unless you're going for a long fast, refeeding isn't an issue. Just make sure not to go full gluttony. How long are you planning to fast ? Starting weight ? Height ? BF % ?

Autophagy doesn't mean that your body is going to consume itself to void. It only concerns unfit cells and up to a certain point. Don't worry about your hair. If your hair is weak however, it might be a deficience in vitamins. Do you have weak nails ?

No, sodium and potassium work together as a pump to pass water through cells. Also, you're not supposed to drink ONLY snake juice, don't forget plain water

I know , but I'm still afraid of it

Hey thank you user, you're nice. Can i skip the mixing of the salt water and drink diet dr pepper? Doesnt it got potassium and sodium in it? Obviously i would drink water at work. I go through about two bottles.

Because cardio during a fast will spike your body's demand for energy. As cardio doesn't require strength, the body will not see the problem consuming muscle as fast energy which is what we absolutely don't want. That's why people recommend to work heavy or bodyweight.

Of course. I drink tons of water at work.

I don't know how much sodium and potassium in Dr.Pepper but I don't think you'll have the amounts you'll need. You really can't go without it ?

No I totally can, but I figured it would make the fasting less boring than water. And i'm lazy. I dont think we have litesalt upstairs and i dont drive so i cant get any. We do have morton salt though. Ill check the label again maybe it is litesalt

Does it have to be lite salt? Or could i just mix a spoonfull or two of regular salt into my water bottle?

regular salt doesn't contain potassium, so it won't work. You absolutely need BOTH

Does anyone have any links to where to buy potassium and sodium? Unless I'm looking at the wrong stuff it says that the potassium citrate recommendation are much lower than op amounts.

try to figure out when Lent ends and I can end my fasting
some say Holy Thursday
some say Holy Saturday at noon
some say Holy Saturday at sundown
some say when Easter Sunday starts
Eh, this is pretty confusing. Seems like there's a difference between denominations too, I'm Catholic myself. I'll probably go for sundown on Saturday.

Do you need potassium and sodium on a water only fast? What happens if you do just regular water?
