    Im 6'4 and was always between 87-96 kg in the last years..i was over 100kg 8 years ago..felt like shit..especially since i have a genetically determined very bad fat distribution meaning that i store all my fat at the belly and neck and nothing at the legs/butt..probably a ton of visceral fat too

    This is why weight or bmi are not really that important..its more about fat/muscle ratio and esprcially fat distribution

    Will definitely try 36h fast now


    What is your opinion on sulforaphan?

    It may have a good effect on dht too

    Sulforophane is promising but I'd like to see more research.
    What I've seen of that drug is good, but I'm honestly skeptical of all research published on herbs, etc. Part of that is that in my time on this hair loss forum I've learned that hair loss has been nearly cured so many times: pumpkin seed oil, saw palmetto, rice bran oil, he shon wu, laminar japonica, distance tubulosa, etc etc etc. I despair that the herbal medicine literature may be overwhelmingly bullshit.

    Let me know how things go for you.

    I also put fat on my neck/jaw and it's annoying, as it's arguably the ugliest kind of fat.

    No, I meant that what I learned from hair loss is that a lot of studies on herbal supplements are bogus. I assume that this applies to other industries as well.

    Examine.com is arguably the best source for supplement information, you can try them.

    I broke my fast today with a light meal around 11:00am and a larger meal around 4:30pm.

    This was delicious !

    Fasting has definitely helped me.

    I feel so much better. My fasting is just skipping dinner, and maybe running occasionally.

    I'm about to start IF, taking the 20:4 approach

    Although I've done the low calories throughout the day thing, this will be my first time doing actual legit intermittent fasting protocol

    Going to keep my eating window in the evening

    1) yes.

    2) yes. Tea, coffee, salt, are fine too.

    Let us know how it goes.

    If you can do a second day, do so.

    By day three you'd plausibly need salt.

    Sleep is an issue for some people.

    if you guys regularly take vitamins/supplements, do you still do them on a long fast? do you take it with a fatty supplement since some nutrients are fat-soluble?

    i'm asking because i take a whole food multivitamin supplement along with other antioxidants/antiaging supplements like resveratrol, nordic naturals fish oil, astaxanthin, curcumin, pumpkin seed oil

    either way, taking zinc on an empty stomach makes me feel very sick, nauseous.

    Vitamins can be stopped. There's no need to ever take vitamins seven days a week unless you have a deficiency.

    I did an unintentional 36 hour fast last week, felt good and had lots of energy, though i woke up in the middle of the night after 2 hours of sleep and couldnt go bck to sleep so i just went to the gym at 5 AM.

    made the mistake of getting breakfast before work, made me really tired before noon even came by.

    now im trying to do it again, but eating bone broth with spices, decaf coffee, tea, some gelatin

    What are you basing this assertation on?

    We are talking about one of the all time most studied food ingredients that has consistently passed with flying colors.
