I appreciate your perspective man. That’s really informative. I’ve seen people talk about fasting during the week and eating on the weekends but maybe they aren’t completely cutting out solids.
I felt rather healthy for the time when I did it, but then I was warned off from doing it by my mentors. I am not sure that they understand the new science as well as the new predicament of modern people, which is even more sedentary than years past. I also experienced excruciating constipation, which is a problem that is fixable.
I was able to workout once a week, run for 5 K, 6 machines, 30 reps each. I teach at a local school. The kids are quite intense and managing them was no cake walk. But believe it or not, fasting made them more manageable. It is almost as if they picked up on my own discipline, calmness and non-reactivity. I was able to get off with 5 hours of sleep. The number of hours of sleep I needed was reducing as well, which may be the due to the mitochondrial efficiency going up.
