Ugh I wish I could do this.
It’s not as difficult as it may seem. You just need to learn the right foods to eat and when. For example, make sure your last meal before your fast each day is high in protein, greens, and a healthy fat. That fat is critically important as it satiates your hunger. So a last meal at 6PM with salmon, greens, and a whole avocado will hold you done until noon the next day.

That said, if you’re the type of person who stays on the go or doesn’t have a regular schedule, then intermittent fasting is a lot more difficult.

Damn 5 days? o_O
It's not impossible. Anybody can do it. Like gil scott heron say, "ain't no such thing as a superman". Most of us eat way more than we need. And then there is the issue of bad nutrition and pollution. I heard of people fadting 60 days. Matter i seen video of one brotha that went over 120 days but he was really fat, and could sustain himself (fasting fatman).

Even if your skinny you carrying about 25% body fat. Most waterfasting is about reclaiming your health, not weight loss, but it does do that like nobody's business. That why people with all types of cancers do it. It ain't easy, but it is doable. The benefits are tremendous ( look up autophagy & fadting). The body heals its self. Fasting gives a better opportunity to do just that. Boxers do before s fight to drop weight, get clarity, and be at their best athletically.

Look "A Healthy Alternative". Look at videos of everyday people in all kinds of circumstances heal themselves. If you ever get really sick remember this. A healthy Alternative has free information on there website to walk you thru a waterfast. They on youtube facebook & instagram.

P.S. i do heavy, demanding manual labour. I was having back pain and would have to keep stretch to get relief. I worked today with the greatest of ease. I am able to move freely in my body again. I'm getting even stronger, and more flexible day by day. It ain't easy but it is doable.

Quick question and much success to everyone who is living a healthy life incorporating intermittent fasting..

I gained some weight during Covid because I am working from home full time....This is unacceptable lol

I been doing fasting for many years, but I normally do 16-8...I want to try 18 -6 for a few weeks doing a smoothie diet (low sugar fruits, green stuff, and vegan protein powder)...

My questions are below:

1. I am doing a fasted workout in the mornings that last about 50 minutes (Heat Extreme Workout). Is it ok to take BCAA's so that I won't lose any muscle?

2. In the afternoons, I would like to do some sort of dumbell workout for no longer than 30 minutes. Any recommendations?

Thanks

I think BCAAs break your fast since they’re synthesized as protein and cause your body to release insulin.

If you are ONLY doing intermittent fasting you won't lose muscle, because you are not fasting long enough for that to happen. Your body will use it's protein only when it has run out of body fat for fuel. By then your no longer in the fasting state but in the starvation state, which would take a really long time. You don't need the BCAA. that defeats the whole purpose of fasting. You can have the BCAA during your feeding window, but you really don't need them for fear of losing muscle or to build muscle. Too much protein can hurt you as well (liver damage).

I just finished 10 days water fasting last week. I drop fat, not muscle. I actually got stronger and more flexible. I worked out everyday except those last couple days. Working out made the healing reaction ease up. But my understanding is if you workout during water fast you losing water weight & all over body fat. Where as if you rest and only do a little exercise you burning visceral fat (that gut). You have to see what works for you. IM is not that deep, and is really easy. You won't deplete your protein. If that does happen something else is wrong.

Look up the kettlebell 300 hundred for a good weight lifting workout. Look in the fitness thread here on BG.

Last i used this to test my urine for any problems during my fast:



Not once was protein detected in my urine. I had boku ketones from burning fat and the specific gravity test implied i wasn't drinking enough water but that was it. The other 8 markers were normal and that's 10 days without eating nothing. I still had plenty body fat to spare. I was no where near starving. I just got tired of that acetate taste on my tongue (byproduct of ketosis => body burning fat). I never weighed myself b/c i didn't do it to lose weight. I feel great now. I reset my whole digestive system. My skin tone look real healthy. Good luck to you bruh. I encourage you to do your research so that you know exactly What IM or any kind of fasting is doing while you on it.
