Refeed. I have a electrolyte drink. Between 16-20 fast regularly. Periodically, day fasts. The lockdown in the UK and no gyms is annoying. More fasting and calisthenics to compensate for the pandemic.

I'm playing with the fast.
oh, good idea with the electrolyte drink.
sounds great.

I haven't tried again too much, except for skipping suppers sometimes, so some days its 14:10 no problem. 1-3 x a week that happens naturally.
Outside of that and it starts playing on my mind. My scale I bought 2 months ago measures water and I was at 44 % water. That's probably too low. Doc yesterday said just drink 1.5 L to 3L a day so you stick to it. Ok, I will.
Electrolyte sounds good too.

Troy Francis made a nye video. it's a ghost town. My gym is closed. No eta for reopening if ever. Many are closing down.

A few mates from my bjj club and gym are Muslim. I was recommended to try fasting. I noticed that effective results for then. I was reading Path to God by Ram Dass. I was reading the yoga sutras. I went through a Connor Murphy hippie phase.

Intermittent fasting is legit. Physically deezed and aesthetic purely from clean diet. Forced calorie restrictions from the fast. my joints are solid from the lack of iron and heavy lifting.

the next addition to the routine is 20min meditation, foam rolling 2x a week, and minimum 8 hour sleep every night.
Yes, I meant to look that up when you wrote of those before. I'll write down those books on my books to read list. I'll look up Connor Murphy too.

I'm still not at 8 hours sleep and I'm off work so I should/could be. Might be the recent realisation that I've been dehydrated.
I might buy even darker blackout curtains and do that test author Anthony Jay says to do on them before buying, lol I have a sleeping eye mask but it always seems to be off by morning, lol.

I don't meditate enough and I haven't tried foam rolling yet.

Great additions to your routine. Lucky to have Muslim friends as their culture/religious beliefs as regards to no drinking suit me just fine. Maybe more that I don't know about yet.

Man, the more I read or research about spirituality the more I realise I'm doing the right thing by 'keep going back' to any and all types of alcoholism meetings.

Have you read those 12 steps or the AA book or tried an 'open" meeting in the support of anybody you've known of to go to these meetings?

All I'm learning about spirituality and serving others and meditations and taking accountability and forgiving and admitting mistakes and accepting powerlessness and knowing I am not alone and on and on....its amazing.

If in the future you ever try an 'open' meeting for the kicks of it, I guarantee you'll get a spiritual buzz from the godlike people in the room. I'll look up if there's meetings in your world area; there's 3 physical locations open (one is Spanish) and there's one zoom mtg. Nothing like socialising with people in person though.

Valuable and thoughtful life hacks learned at those meetings. Suits my personality.

I got triggered to write about aa after looking at the book titles by Ram Dass and the one 'Be here now' reminded me of the insisting phrase "keep coming back" in aa, and the picture of the empty chair on his book cover is symbolic of people with the family disease of alcoholism that lost out to institutions, jail or death. Some meeting locations you'll see there's a symbolic chair that noone sits in to honour the lost ones.

All meetings are free and noncommittal and nondenominational. Sorry to sound like I'm promoting. There's a severe stigma to this fellowship but I can't help but notice the parallels to what I've been learning outside those meetings.

You killing it brah brah!!! @DEEZEDBRAH

I’ve been fasting for a long time and never realized what I was doing until I started to really examine and became conscious of my eating habits. The problem is that the idea around eating is fed into society which says that you need to eat 3 meals per day and then snacks in between. There is an old saying that goes “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper” which basically promotes eating three meals a day which is not even healthy. We are made to believe that we have to constantly be eating if not we are going to die...which is not the case either. That’s why you see people in the US so obese and over weight including children because people are constantly eating sugary and salty foods or hooked on coffee or energy drinks.

If we go back in time to the hunter gatherer society’s that used to exist...the surplus of food wasn’t that readily available so our ancestors were actually fasting for longer periods of time until they got to kill and eat there food. They lived healthy lives even though there life span was short. Regardless of not eating as much we have managed to survive as long as we have. Eating as much as we do is a recent construct and people don’t seem to question it.

Fasting has been around since as far back as the time of Hippocrates who is also known as the “father of medicine” and used to prescribe fasting as a cure for many ailments. Even the major religions talk about fasting heck Muslims fast from sun up till sun down for a whole month during Ramadan...so you can imagine how powerful it actually is and the benefits that you get from it such as high levels of energy, a lean body, greater mental clarity, less brain fog, a feeling of lightness, better digestion, promotes longevity, improves sleep, and the list goes on.

I know this idea is hard to grasp for the modern era because people are constantly stuffing there faces but fasting even one day a week would give your body and your stomach a rest and improve the overall functionality of your brain and body including the stomach which is considered the second brain.

I know this might seem extreme to people but I personally do OMAD or one meal a day and even that meal is a very small meal. Sometimes I eat 2 meals and some days I don’t eat at all and I am still going. As soon as I wake up I drink a big glass of water so I can hydrate myself and it keeps me full for another 5 - 6 hours until I actually eat something. I don’t lift heavy like I used to but I do stretch a lot and try to go on walks. Combine this with cold showers and meditation and you’ll be a machine.

Charismo mate, thanks for the shout out.

5he industry is full of frauds and fellas on gear. I tried a variety of different things. Intermittent fasting is super sayain mode. I'm physically stronger and more aesthetic then I was before. I'm more aesthetic and I have not been this shred since my mid twenties. I cannot suggest it more.

I'm into keto too as a accelerater. I'm by the clock. Minimum 16-24 hour fast. I cannot wait to break fast. I'm sleeping better. No brain fog. Rock hard bones and vitality. I'm meditating regularly. My diet is clean. No high fructose corn syrup or any faux estrogenic. My skin and hair looks fresher. My game is sharper. Been dating through pandemic. It's been great.

I can't stress enough how important routine is. 8 hour sleep. Less hours working out means more active recovery (sleep, stretching, Epsom salt bath, cold shower, cry therapy, massage, foam roller,yoga, meditation, etc).my workouts are 1 hour max all dialed in. No waste or chatter. I'm limber from virtually zero weight training. I'm loose. Feeling good.
