I've been feeling, blah, lately. When I was younger I would fast sporadically for a day or two and in doing so I felt refreshed and energized, but I have never gone over two days. This 5 day fast will be something new to me.

Alright, I can track it. I am assuming it will lower as the fast continues.

Normally my diastolic is in the 80's and my systolic is in the 130's. I'm changing out the batteries tonight and checking again. If it's the same I will have to assume the cialis I am taking is lowering my blood pressure into the ideal range.

Weird cuz I just checked bp like five times and got different readings for all of them.

150/100, 140/97, 135/90, 130/85. Not in that order. But they were all different

Did you first take it when you say down from being up and about and the lower readings were from when you had been sitting for a while.

For his size and weight, yea for sure.


If you don't have a resting heart rate of at least in the 60s upon weakening(I've got mine in the low low 50s)...then cardio needs to be taken care of ASAP

I have, I only lasted 2 days though. I'll try again to go longer after Christmas. There are a lot of health benefits in fasting. Do a Google search and you will get many articles talking about the different types of fasts and the benefits.

Your HR IS high. Means your cardiovascular needs to improve drastically. Anyone IMO that has those numbers listed, SHOULD be doing cardio ED.

Agree. Bunch of sissy shit if you ask me.

Avid you still got about 50 gallons of fat on you. Why you dicking around with "water fasts" like some Richard Simmons follower.

Drop the bodyfat and your numbers will look better.

Yeah... I need to find a way of eating that works for me and is sustainable. I think I am goimg to try a static meal prep. In the past I did meal prep but my recipes would sometomes suck and I would not want to eat the meal prep. I am working on a diet that will give me my macros and micros.

Fasting has proven to be incredibly healthy and a means of cancer prevention. Check out r/fasting on Reddit.

You should try it sometime. Might help with your sleep issues and help with your Phenibut dependence.

He admitted he has to take it every single night or else he can't sleep. It's really bad, addictive shit. I'm concerned about Chad.

lol thanks for worrying about me muchacha!

I take a 1/4 scoop of somatomax before bedtime. It helps me stay asleep. I still sleep like crap but it does help some. It's a small amount and hasn't caused any side affects.

I somehow doubt fasting would help me sleep any better. Doctors have tried about everything. Even tried a sleep study. I just learned to live with getting minimal amount of sleep. Some nights are better than others.
