Related to the sexual abstinence thread. Are there any benefits to period fasting? It seems like a good way to build discipline and self control.
If I ate only high protein foods and exercised regularly while fasting, how could I expect my level of fitness to be affected?
You would burn a lot of fat, I imagine.
I've been fasting lately but I'm finding it easiest to either fast or train (haven't been doing much lately) and eat. I can do 36 hours without major cravings or anything usually, but if I work out too I get ravenous.
A lot of people report good results combining intermittent fasting with workouts though, probably because HGH spikes during fasting. I get too damn hungry.
I want to start doing longer fasts soon as well, like 3+ days.
>You would burn a lot of fat, I imagine
That's kind of my goal, as long as I can keep from burning muscle too.
> I find it easiest to either fast or train and eat
What kind of foods do you eat while you train?
No one loses a significant amount of muscle fasting unless you go for extreme length (weeks instead of days). Working out while fasting decreases muscle loss even further. Just don't expect to put any muscle on, training while fasting is for maintenance and further fat loss.
As far as eating goes, I've actually been eating a lot of carbs, mostly due to temporary poorfaggotry. I just started on keto today though, to make fasting easier. Switching between carb heavy diet and fasting is brutal and I don't recommend it.
Still here OP? How's it coming along?
