    Ha, I tried it! 42hrs without eating :D

    Thanks for the inspiration in the other thread @MMAPlaywright@MMAPlaywright , @Splinty@Splinty , @Never_Rolled@Never_Rolled , @Toelocku@Toelocku , @Suicidalforlife@Suicidalforlife , @Hauler@Hauler , @gangsterkathryn@gangsterkathryn

    Thread: General - This guy fasted for 382 days straight !

    Today is Friday, 4pm (my timezone).
    I started with 2 days of eating very very little. Tuesday + Wednesday. Started Tuesday during the day. In those 2 days I only ate like very small portions of light stuff, like selfmade chickpeas-hummus, cucumber, celery, ginger. That was surprisingly doable.
    Then I didn't ingest any food except for tea and half a cup of black coffee for 24hrs. After the 24hrs I had a small cup of vegetable broth with like a tablespoon of coffee-whitener-cream, herbs and salt and then ate zero for 16hrs until today 1pm.
    (full disclosure I went picking plums last night and cooked them up into a sirup this morning so I had to taste the stuff, but at that point I wasn't hungry anymore, it didn't make a difference)

    My observations during the actual not-eating period:
    > I felt like I had the flu, I couldn't focus my mind or my eyes - I had actually problems reading, okay... It was like a constant fight the first 24hrs where I ate absolutely zero. I had balance problems and wouldn't have wanted to steer a vehicle. Thanks god I'm on vacation and have time for experiments.
    > I slept super little, but not tired. I think I slept much better with the empty stomach. Might have also been the weakness that knocked me out, tho
    > I could focus away any cravings for specific foods, it was rather the feeling sick that got me, not the hunger or lust to eat tasty stuff
    > Today, as it was the second day of the fasting I was still in a bad mood, but didn't really feel sick or weak anymore. Went for a 1,5 hour walk. LOL I walked through Frankfurt and there was even a "Thai-Food"-Festival in the city today!! :D mhhh, but it didn't phase me, walked through it and looked at all the meals
    > I went to the supermarket to buy some vegetables and, walking through the aisles was purely overwhelming - the unlimited possibilities of stuff to eat..
    > I eventually ate rice with vegetables, 2 plates and then ate some of the plums that I had picked yesterday. That will clean out them pipes for shure.
    > I drank at least twice the amount I would drink normally, but I hardly went peeing. super weird.
    > I hardly felt "hungry" or "appetite" it was more a pain in the stomach, nausea and tingling in the joints
    > I also did an "internet-fast" where I didn't watch any stupid videos on youtube etc. for the 4 days. That was really great!!

    My conclusion:
    > I will do it again, and longer. Though now I know what I'll be facing in the beginning. yesterday was a horror. Today was okay.
    > the one cup of vegetable broth after 24hrs "cured" me. It was maybe less than 50 calories, but it helped so much. The headache went away. When I looked up fasting they said to do it with half a litre of vegetable broth and a cup of fruit juice every day (but I think that's cheating, no? Anyways, with the broth it could easily go. Fruit juice or tea with honey I wouldn't take.)
    > It sucked. But it's possible. I'm glad that I did it because I was wondering about it for years and years. The thread gave me the last little push.
    > 1,5 days is probably a ridiculously small feat, but for me it was really hard ... one step at a time, I guess
    > Probably more fun to do it together with somebody. I have friends from Morocco who are doing the Ramadan every year, maybe next year I'll have the guts to join them for a few days (not for religious reasons, more for the body-and-mind experiment. For religious reasons I would have to go for 40 days solid, like Jesus did :D)
    > the biggest takeway was the overwhelming feeling in the supermarket today. All the shelves were filled with different foods and it seemed like a paradise :D :D

    Do you guys have any experiences and/or tips?

    Did you celebrate your accomplishment with a large pizza, big mac and chocolate shake?

    I've always been meaning to try it. I'm not fat or tried it for health reasons. I rather wanted to prove to myself (in like a reassuring way) that it's possible.
    So maybe when I'm hiking and I have to skip eating I would have already done it..

    Congrats Brother, I was raised a Muslim so I used to fast when I was younger - the mental fortitude I gained over food as a child has served me well growing up; it 's amazing what the body can do even when "hungry".
    I don't fast anymore but my view hunger is completely different from most people.
    Next time try without any fluids but a maximum of 12 -16 hours a day; water is weakness my friend..... :)

    I'm doing the opposite of fasting I call it feasting.

    I've had a virus this week so I've been in forced fasting.
    Cold sweats, constantly nauseated. Since Monday evening I've had half a slice of banana bread.

    Chugging fluids but I'm still down 10lbs. Needless to say this hasn't been my most productive week.

    Judging from the pics they actually look pretty good. He washes it down with commie goat piss Westmalle. It stunted his growth.

    I was just reading up on it. It's made by monks. There's one in the USA. My curiosity is peaked. Dealing with Song facts and truth aren't really necessary.
