Intermittent for a few days. Its been a long time since a really real one.

[@887863,enkidu] I've been intermittent fasting for years to lose weight then my body one day stopped losing weight.. it just stopped.
[@58876,Coppercoil] ugh

Yeah when we were poor I got only one meal a day which was a bit of rice with some ketchup if I was lucky

[@58876,Coppercoil] :/ wtf
Coppercoil · M
[@934648,Nanori] 🥺
[@58876,Coppercoil] I second her, wtf lol 😆
I usually fast only twice a year. I can’t stay without fruits or water even during this time coz I’m anemic.
Coppercoil · M
[@372543,Vivaci] ahh.. fruit us wonderful. Candy of the God's.
[@58876,Coppercoil] yup! I love seasonal fruits.

Why are you fasting though? 🤔
Four and a half days couple of weeks back. I had lots of water though.
Coppercoil · M
[@957625,DrScissorhands] that is just terrible. I'm such a bad friend. I would have stayed there and nursed you you know.
No no no. You’re actually pretty great. Why are you fasting though? [@58876,Coppercoil]

[@957625,DrScissorhands] I need a perspective shift so I need to open up to some kind of change.

I haven’t fast in years but feel like I should do another one
Coppercoil · M
[@691096,Myselfatlast] first two days are terrible then the body kicks into ketosis and you feel weak but ok.
Myselfatlast · 22-25, M
Yeah the last time I did it I fasted for I believe 6 days and the first two or three were the only bad ones [@58876,Coppercoil]

When I was at my worst. Meaning when I was using meth and cocaine heavily. I would sometimes go for almost a week without eating.


Now that I've escaped from that, I make a point of eating regularly and well.
Coppercoil · M
[@8731,MilitantIrishman] I have a past of some alcohol and drug abuse. If you ever need support I'm here. Don't hesitate I won't judge.

I've fasted on and off for years.

How are you feeling and why are you doing it?
Coppercoil · M
[@21448,Peaceful] I am not sure just tired of everything if that makes sense.
Peaceful · F
[@58876,Coppercoil] I'm sorry my friend. I'm with you on that. If you wanna talk, you know I'm here for you.

Wow 4 days!?
Doomflower · 36-40, F
[@58876,Coppercoil] that sounds awesome. It is hard to function like that I bet.
Coppercoil · M
[@85866,Doomflower] yeah.. started on the weekend so the worst of the hunger would be over by Monday. Really low energy though.. mind is ok.. just slow. But calm.
Doomflower · 36-40, F
[@58876,Coppercoil] I like when being light on calories causes my heart rate to slow down.
Saraah · 26-30, F
Yes but I'm sick
Coppercoil · M
[@548406,Saraah] awww.. I'm so sorry. I hope you feel better hun.

Nothing like that... but on Sundays I normally eat one large meal now.

And I have gone 36 hours with just chicken broth, spices, water and green tea.
Coppercoil · M
[@800884,Viper] that actually sounds healthy.. maybe I'll switch to that method.
Viper · 31-35, M
[@58876,Coppercoil] what are you trying to do?
this morning. toughest 15 minutes of my life
Coppercoil · M
[@917533,saragoodtimes] omg.. how did you manage?
[@58876,Coppercoil] read my comment
marsbar · F
Are you fasting like that on purpose?
summersong · F
At the height of my anorexia I would alternate 4-5 days without eating and then have a day with one meal. I can’t fast anymore because it triggers old patterns.

I also fainted a lot and got to the point where I had no nutrients in my body so you know. Be careful with it. Your body needs some food to function
Coppercoil · M
[@334441,summersong] wow I am so glad you shared. I am not sure I was aware of the severity of it. I'm glad you beat it and are doing ok noe. What do you remember about the experience?

hunkalove · 61-69, M

JupiterDreams · 26-30
I can't do a fast. I don't know why but I get fairly sick when I've tried...
Gaiia · F
No, the only fast I usually do is skipping breakfast. More than that, no. I don't see the sense of it. Rather have balanced meals.
alkynesoftrouble · 51-55, M
Doesn’t that mess with your metabolism?
pedrohedgerow · 61-69, M
Not exactly fasting,but in my younger speed freak days I would not eat for 4-5 days at a time.
