Don't worry baby. Eating is optional for those who have chosen to live outside the dictates of normalcy. The flavor is savored when a morsel of nutrition sparks the tastebuds as they taste a rare treat.

Re: Starvation and the pleasurable feelings associated with the activity.
starvation makes something permanent to your brain.

I was actually thinking this yesterday.

we have a natuesl biological feedback system that kick in during starvation and make you very calm and accepting to death...but also kills your survival instinct.

I tell you that even after you exit starvation this will remain in you...and it's very dangerous.

you will look to things to go south but not react.

you will logically see how bad is but not react.

A year and a half probably. Had a miserable bout of depression and bad life circumstances so I started self medicating with food and alcohol and had no energy to do anything. Making better choices now.

I'm no stranger to alcoholism and found it odd that I had no thirst for intoxicating beverages this evening. The road to recovery can be travelled within the vehicle of hunger.

It all starts with a choice. I'm just starting to make the right choices myself.

Thankfully I wasn't consuming enough to cause any notable withdrawals. Doing fine without.

A painless transition into full time sobriety. You are well on your way. I hope that my experience mirrors yours.
 Quoting: ghostly screams


Done the same. The feeling of "Burning Fat" is addictive, and makes giving up alcohol, and other substances bearable.

Dont believe in any of the Yoga shit or sperm retention. My Woman is also a fire, so whatever I lose by "releasing", I gain by her bitching at me.
My ISP is transgender and identifies with the pronouns "Canadian". But I can assure you I have lived in Southern California my whole life. Please stop sending me nasty messages about Syrup or Hockey...I dont get it.

Very nice. Totally agreeing with the sentiment that hunger can replace the substances that potentially do harm.

Re: Starvation and the pleasurable feelings associated with the activity.
Fasting is a giant reset on everything within the body. It not only brings about healing attributes through autophagy, but after about three days, ketosis kicks in for the effects of weight loss. When the primary glucose fuel stores are drained, the body's secondary fuel source ketones, kick in as the fuel replacement.

In Ketosis, you will feel a sense of euphoria and well being. Some days will offer high energy, others low energy. You won't crave vices, like alcohol or other addictions. Your days will feel longer and more slowed, almost a tad boring. You will sleep much less. Your vigor and stamina will increase. Your dreams, may manifest in vivid color as you sleep, unlike you've ever experienced before. Your appetite will be largely suppressed into nonexistent.

While your body will be healing itself through autophagy, it's going to give you some minor discomforts along the way. Always know what you are doing, and know when to come out. Vitamins, supplements, apple cider vinegar, and electrolytes are critically important. Measure and record your results, and track your ketone levels. Learn how to refeed safely, as you wake up your digestive system.

The mileage of someone that is 100 lbs, verses someone that is 400 lbs, is very different. Fat, when accessed is a fuel source and when you understand the mechanism involved, can manipulate your body in a safe and healthy way. If you don't understand it, you can do yourself incredible harm, including inducing death. In the numbers above, the 400 lbs individual can hold out much longer safely, as they have ample fat stores. It really comes down to body fat percentages. The longest water fast ever recorded, is over 400+ days straight.

I recently heard of an individual friend of the family that went too extreme. No prep. No understanding of what she was doing. She lost an incredible amount of weight, but she took it to the extreme of anorexia. Her organs were starting to fail. Her mind was going dull. She didn't do it properly, and was admitted to the hospital. Know your limits.

It's a beautiful experience, one I recommend everyone try at least once, but do it safely. Learn what works for your own body. It's an experience I will continue to do for the rest of my life, on and off simply for the health benefits.

Re: Starvation and the pleasurable feelings associated with the activity.
”Fasting is a great tapas. It purifies the mind. It destroys a great multitude of sins. Shastras prescribe fasting for the purification of the mind. Fasting controls particularly the tongue, which is your deadly enemy. Fasting overhauls the respiratory, circulatory, digestive and urinary systems. It destroys all the impurities of the body and all sorts of poisons. It eliminates uric acid deposits.

“Just as impure gold is rendered pure by melting it in the crucible again and again, so also, the impure mind is rendered purer and purer by fasting again and again.”


“Where can Sannyasins who live on public alms get a well-balanced diet? On some days they get pungent stuffs only, on some other days sweetmeats only, and on some other days sour things only. But they draw the required energy through the power of meditation. This unique, Yogic method is unknown to the medical profession and scientists. Whenever the mind is concentrated, a divine wave bathes all the tissues with the divine elixir. All the cells are renovated and vivified.

“Fasting is interdicted for practitioners of Yoga as it produces weakness. Occasional mild fast is highly beneficial. It will thoroughly overhaul the system, will give rest to the stomach and intestines, and eliminate uric acid.”

That’s abnormal.

Normal humans either have heterosexual sex; or if they’re single, they sublimate their sexual desire in various ways (meditation, yoga, working out, fasting).

And you’ll definitely want to not fap if you’re fasting regularly; because you’ll want to keep reserves of what in Yoga is called Ojas (not to mention that ejaculation, or too many of them, depletes your zinc stores).

Hi Asura. I'm about to get my autophagy going and will have to keep in mind the depleted zinc stores. I never knew there was a correlation between zinc and spent seed.

I am freaking starving and I never felt better. My growling stomach gurgles as hunger pangs grow in intensity.

These sensations are beyond pleasurable. I embrace the feelings that are ever present. I'll eat when it's an absolute neccessity. Until then, I'll enjoy the benefits of being hungry.

My lover will be dismayed to read these words. My health and well being are a high priority for her. I'll do my best to alleviate her worry for this particular situation.

Hm, maybe you need, not just more calcium, but more D3 and K2 for the calcium to actually get sent directly to your bones & teeth?

For K2, there’s Natto (see NYNatto.com), or some European hard cheeses like Muenster, Jarlsberg, Gouda, Cabot and Schabziger (just some names I’ve stumbled upon in my searching).

For D3, the Country Life spray one seems good (it’s vegetarian, but not vegan).
