As someone who used to do week long fasts this is frighteningly accurate.
@Atom bomb baby, but why tho, is it a weight thing, a religion thing, a health thing orrrr
@Atom bomb baby, I think this guy had a small seizure at the beginning of day 3!!!
@Atom bomb baby, answer the Wonka! Why!?
@MrWonka, there’s nothing healthy about it
@MrWonka, it depends on how you fast, and the type of body you have, it works for some people. You don't need food the moment your stomach tells you, you can see that once you ignore it for an hour or two. Your body just uses the energy that was stored from your previous meal instead for a while. Some people do this to save money on eating less, some to lose weight, or the idea that when you not full your way more on the ball mentally.
@MrWonka, religious and mental/therapeutic reasons
@MrWonka, any religion that restricts food is one I won’t follow.
I love the part in the Bible where God is like, ok you can just eat pork now, unless it offends a weaker brother I suppose. So now any vegetarian Christians I get to call weak as a joke and they can’t defend themselves!
See I love food way too much to ever fast
@GonMoose the Great, I fast every single day without fail and I'm still fat. Some people tell me it doesn't count if I'm asleep but what do they know?
Fasting like this is a bad idea. The binge session at the end undoes everything.
I remember a story about a guy that did this for a month only instead of water it was beer. Lost a ton of weight and now does it once a year.
@spongar141 , oh yeah here is https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6892517/amp/Ohio-man-beer-diet-Lent-dropped-34-pounds-starting-fast-Ash-Wednesday.html
I went for 2 weeks a few separate times. I cannot recommend gorging your first meal. Introduce solid food back slowly, or else that diarrhea will be swift and powerful. Damn near had liftoff from the toilet seat.
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, I could never fast. You could not pay me to fast. Ok thats a lie, you could pay me to fast, but it would have to be a stupid amount of money. I can usually skip lunch and have a light dinner but if I don't get my breakfast I'm likely to kill someone. I. Need. My. Breakfast. I don't care what it is but if I don't get food into my stomach a few hours after I wake up then I'm irritable, grumpy and prone to headaches and nausea. I need my breakfast.
LET ME EAT YOU SIN!!!!
Getting ready for communism I see.
