Not sure maybe I misunderstood so here's this..

I'd never pretend to a child that God existed because I think that's cruel, same with the afterlife, and the same with the death of family members or others. I think lying to kids about death just creates some kind of cruel, slow torture. They don't understand it immediately anyway.

>Young child

They hid that shit from me until I was almost thirty. I'm the youngest child of three, and as far as I know my older brother and sister still don't know any of what my parents have told me about their tumultuous past.

They could have told me this stuff when I was a teenager. It's a mistake rying to hide people from the bad parts of life instead of informing them properly. I would have likely avoided making several bad choices when I was younger if I had known my dad wasn't just talking out of his ass. I might have respected his opinion more if I knew he had actually experienced certain things and knew what he was talking about. There was no reference with which to respect his opinion.

That's some Shakespearean-drama tier shit man. Maybe you could fictionalize it and novelize it to get it out, it's unusual enough that people might want to read it.

In my dating/sex life across my teens and twenties (I just turned 30) I always noticed a correlation: the more abusive and emotionally unpredictable a person is, the better in bed they are.

If a woman is sweet, caring, and emotionally supportive of my mental illness, the sex is gonna probably be aight but nothing to write home about. If a woman is bitchy, confrontational, screams at me constantly, and belittles me, you can bet your ass that sex is gonna be hot, sweaty, biting, scratching, hair-pulling, animalistic sex. The head game is gonna be fire. Abusive partners are always the best submissives in BDSM relationships. In a non-abusive relationship, sex with be 3-4x a week. In an abusive relationship, sex is going to be multiple times a day.

Why the sex game gotta be so fire with horrible people? My last relationship I wanted to leave so badly but the sex was just too good that is was worth being slapped around and being told to kill myself. Thankfully she dumped me eventually for another guy (who is now a crippling alcoholic and pill-popper thanks to her). I just don't understand the psychology of it.

I am voluntarily seeking CBT, anger management, and biofeedback. My insurance will only cover two of these and I'm leaning towards CBT and biofeedback. I started noticing that I've become incredibly irritable, to the point that it scares both myself and others. I've developed a hairpin trigger, and now struggle with explosive anger. I become inconsolable and uncontrollable when I'm in this state, and I am incredibly worried because I did not used to be like this.

It feels as if one day, out of the blue, I became incredibly agitated yet unable to pinpoint exactly why. I told my psychiatrist after several incidents of screaming my lungs out, at my girlfriend of all people, that were so out-of-place, overblown, and uncalled for. He switched my medications, but that seems to have not helped much at all.

I can be a bit of a worry wart, but I know myself and my thinking very well, and something very fundamental in my cognition has shifted. I've been asking my girlfriend how I express my anger externally and what I've heard is incredibly disturbing to me.

My impulse control is also extremely bad, and I have been acting erratically. I have long-suffering depression and anxiety which I am taking medications for.

Please, has anyone had experience with anything like, and what has helped you?

LOL holy fuck no wonder you've got problems. You say you can't control your anger, yet somehow you go into stressful situations every day in traffic, at the supermarket, at the social security office, but in the end, who are the actual targets of your anger? The people who forgive you. Now, be honest, is this something that's outside of your control really? Are you being honest when you say you're just a passenger in these situations of rage? That someone else is in control when you are screaming vile shit at people who care about you? Don't say yes. I won't believe it, man. Obviously you have control over this as evidenced by the fact that you're a free person walking around and not in jail for flipping off a judge. What your smug attitude disguises is a complete lack of confidence in situations that are outside of your complete control. People who lack confidence lash out and make themselves the center of attention, as you do when you get angry, you say, "See?? I got angry and now they're all doing what I say! Who's in control NOW???" in the end though, you will either develop coping skills and the ability to endure these situations or your whole family will leave you, I promise. I've seen it.

Sorry, don't read too deeply into my other post. The pertinent information is in my OP. There is definitely some deflection and aggression directed at people who are close to me. I'm working on that in therapy. The confidence issue and poor self image obviously play a role in that too, which I'm also getting therapy in. However, besides my behavioral and psychological issues, the most damaging thing is my agitation. This agitation is not just reserved to the people im close to and people who "forgive me". I feel this agitation and stress in all aspects of my life. I have to work on character flaws, and yes, the fact that I'm more comfortable screaming at my girlfriend than strangers is a problem, but I truly do want to scream my lungs when i get stressed in everyday situations. I DO flip out in traffic. And yes, I control my behavior in public more than i do at home, but this causes me to break out in hives all over my body and sweat profusely. I'll work on my behavior, it's why I'm seeking Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, but I feel like I have serious problems controlling my anger. I would never yell at people before, and i would be able to communicate properly when upset, but now, increasingly, I go from 0 to 10 in an instant, and can only recognize it in the aftermath.

So like you said, this isn't a psychological defect, this is you refusing to control your behavior. Agitation? You go out into the world and see idiots, and this makes you agitated enough to get hives and snap at your girlfriend? You need mindfulness training too, bub. If you go out in life you will encounter idiots. At some point, you will be expected to go into the world and encounter idiots, and not come home and be a testy asshole to your poor fucking girlfriend. You must make this choice in the end.

I was returning back to my apartment complex and I see this beautiful girl and she smiled and waved at me. Like some kind of idiot I just smiled back and waved and kept on walking. I seen her in my complex so she most likely lives here. I really want to run into this girl again. How should I go about this?

I usually spend my time inside. I have been sitting outside with my switch from time to time. Trying to see if I see her. If I didnt look up at her with her smiling and waving before I even made eye contact. This wouldn't be running through my mind. It didnt even register till I got in my unit and sat down. Such an idiot.

So, I went through like maybe 3-4 years of unbelievable trauma in childhood, spent a very long time with slow-burn trauma and drug abuse, then had another 2 years of severe trauma and 2 ears of rehab recently in my life, followed by like two years of relatively clean living.

The weird thing is now, I notice I have little to no fear, even when I think it might be helpful. I know that scary people, in fact, people that have hurt me, also had this property, and don't like it, but not sure why it is happening, how to change it or if it's just permanently removed. I try to use this new lack of fear for good, but for example, being unafraid to say something crude or bizarre in a conversation and then realizing it causes fear afterwards is problematic to other people.

On top of that, the entire world feels like emotional cardboard to me.

One of the great beauties in life is appreciating your own conscious experience. Know yourself intimately and never lash out in fear. Envy nothing but appreciate everything. Live knowing that your appreciation for your own particular conscious thoughts is what gives life meaning. Do not envy yourself for who you were for others have lost just as you have lost. Be reborn, grieve your loss, awaken into your new universe, and, then, begin to appreciate all the other universes of the people around you. Imagine yours melding with theirs, then let the branches of your galaxy touch arms with another. You might be surprised at the power and depth you possess.

Second year of college

I don't want to be a virgin forever. How do I approach girls in my class without being creepy? I know I probably shouldn't do it on the first day but I really really want a GF.

And before you ask, I take of myself (180lbs 6ft2in 11% bodyfat) and I have a decent face. But my social skills are dogshit and I just don't know what to say to girls.


also I'm deathly afraid that I'll be hitting on a chick and some white-knight asshole will go all fake woke on me and accuse me of being weird and shit. How do I respond to this hypothetical? How do I have a comeback that isn't cringe?

>I just don't know what to say to girls

I think the endless debate on this subject goes to show there isn't really any algorithm you can follow to pick up chicks because women are all different people with different preferences, likes, dislikes, etc. You should always start a relationship with a woman the same way you'd start a relationship with a guy. How would you approach a guy you want to be friends with? Approach women the same way initially. You're over thinking it and categorizing women as an other that they just aren't. Talk to people the way you'd talk to people. If there's mutual attraction it will grow from there.

>How do I approach girls in my class without being creepy

Assuming you mean like school and not class of attractiveness, approaching girls in class is not the time or place at all. It will almost always come off as creepy. They're there for a reason and that reason isn't to find a mate. The only way it would be natural is if there was a group project and you became friends over it, that's entirely fair.

>some white-knight asshole will go all fake woke on me and accuse me of being weird and shit

This doesn't happen in real life. The phenomenon of dorky guy who sticks up for women because he wants to have sex only really exists in the minds of people for whom it is inconceivable that you would ever be nice to a woman except to fuck her.

Women are men with pussies.

Just talk to her about normal shit.

My room mate is an autist woman. All you have to do is learn that not everyone has your psychokinetic powers of ultrafocus and it's important to have a little figurative chess timer. I.e listen to what they are saying and offer a rebuttal in your own words. Taking in to consideration 'ding' words.

'i like trains; my favorite is the F40 Series; did you know that VIA refurbished them Into GPA30's.'

'No I did not know about. The refurbished trains; what makes them different?'

They have new electric motors and a slick paint job.

What color is the train? Are they fast?

I have a upper-middle class upbringing, great parents, I am 6'3'' with no medical problems and am physically moderately attractive. I'm a creative person with respect to drawing and writing, and I enjoy quality cinema and am an intellectual enough of a dude to process the meaning behind setpieces and character actions in a film.

Does anyone have these qualities and just... wants to die for some odd reason?

For me there are two contributing factors:
>A) In highschool I fell in love with a woman who I thought was particularly interesting and she pretty much called me a creep and told me to get fucked when I told her. Though I admit to having her cross my mind every 10 minutes I maintain that I am not a creep as I am a pacifist who absolutely wouldn't force my will upon anyone and know very well to keep to myself.

>B) I have absolutely no future. None. I have a prepaid college fund that I am not going to do anything with. The shortest explanation I can come up with is that I do not work well in an authoritarian setting--- me paying to do non-creative writing for someone to grade me for is some seriously absurd shit. Non-creative writing is in itself an oxymoron as writing is an art.

I've been not wanting to really live for the above reasons. Romantic love that is not inspired by economic trade (basically goldigging) is a lie, and winners in this broken psudo-capitalist society being decided by merit are a lie.

I don't know if I am asking for advice, because the advice that I get is that I am every single creep who walked this Earth for still being beat up towards my unrequitted feelings after 8 years. The person who I fell in love with is completely gone from me as the bridge has been burned for several years now, and I feel like the equivalent of a lonely who man whose wife has long since passed.

It's not really that great of a feeling.

I want to make an electronic game, and paint like Francisco Goya. But I have these Mexican glowfuckers that have been harassing me since 2008. They keep trying to raid my house and won't stop gangstalking me because I download pictures of guns for photoreferences. They've come to every single job I've had and ruined my reputation. Constantly saying things like I do Methamphetamine because I stay up all night. Even though I've never touched that shit in my life.

What do I do, I cant even earn enough money to leave the state in which my family has lived in since 1920 something. I'm going crazy and I can't cope anymore.

I've been with someone who's special to me for the first time in a very long time. I tried to make this as obvious as possible without flat out saying it but I don't think it got through. I'm going to say it next time, and the anxiety from these few days has me in such a state that I haven't masturbated in 3 full days (that's extremely rare for me)

Something's Wrong

I'll try to keep this short.
I feel like something's wrong with me. My life is objectively the best it's ever been in terms of ease and security, and yet I feel it's getting harder and harder to get through each day.

I feel like it started around 2 years ago when my girlfriend moved in with me. At first I thought I just needed an adjustment period from living alone my whole adult life, but here we are 2 years later, and if anything, the feeling is getting worse (or at least harder to ignore).

The thing is, I don't really know if it's living with her that's making me feel this way.
I feel the worst when I'm at work. I have such a hard time getting up some mornings, and there are days when I get to my desk and want to just cry.
I pretty much always feel better at home. I just took a week-long trip with my girlfriend, and it was the best time I've had in ages. I enjoyed myself, and I enjoyed being with her. So that means being around her probably isn't the cause, right?

I know I wasn't always happy before my girlfriend. I was lonely and felt like a loser. I had no friends.
And yet, I also feel like I enjoyed myself. I had fun, did things, looked forward to things.
Now whenever I try to engage in one of my previous pastimes, I feel like I'm just going through the motions.
I feel like the weekends are pointless because I'll just be facing down another Monday morning in 48 hours. There used to be a time where I was actually ready to go back to work on Monday, because I had gotten bored from the weekend.
Now I can't remember the last time I felt fully rested even after a 3 day weekend.
I feel like everything is becoming a struggle, and I rarely have anything to look forward to. The only cure I've found is to keep myself so busy that I don't have time to feel bad (but that usually just leads elevated stress, so it's a trade-off).

The other alternative is weed. Before my girlfriend, I would drink a controlled amount to get drunk maybe 1-2 times a week, like Friday/Saturday night.
After she moved in, I was binge-drinking 3-4 times a week, sometimes spending whole days drunk (only on my days off work), and not limiting myself to the controlled amounts I had been before. Eventually it started to backfire though, and I would find myself feeling even worse than I would otherwise the morning after, so the past few months I've started shifting to weed instead.
Weed doesn't have the negative effects alcohol does, but I've gone from using it maybe once every few months to multiple times a week. It's gotten to the point where I've seriously started to consider micro-dosing edibles in the morning just so I won't feel like having a breakdown at my desk.

My gut is telling me I need to change something in my life, but I don't want to leave my girlfriend, and my job is too sweet a gig to give up.
I feel like there's something wrong with me, and I don't know what to do.

Your life is out of balance and you feel like you lack control of the things you do. Fair enough. That's called being part of the system.

Theres a shift in society. If you were born a generation earlier youd be able to have a more comfortable lifestyle for doing the same shit as you are now, but yeah now the squeeze is on you. Dont get me wrong. Youd get squeezed anyway. Look at your parents. Chances are they've been stressed since before you were born. Yep. Paying all the insurances and bills and upkeeps after rent and doing housework and cleaning. Adult shit is never ending and always seems frivolous.

You get home and on top of unloading the stress of the day you have to do shit with your partner and keep the spice alive. If shes not happy, you'll probably wear it one way or another. Hey, shes stressed too.

Do you want to live your life this way? Really? If so, continue. Dont change a thing.

We all know however that it's not working. The whole damn society knows this subconsciously and its why everyone is freaking the fuck out. The planet is too small to keep up with endless growth and the middle are falling behind into indentured servitude.

Opt out. Fucking buy a caravan and an empty block of land with some bush out of the city. Build a house out of cob and recycled materials. Grow your own food. You'll be able to work 3 days a week if you dont have a mortgage and spend huge amounts of money on shitty mass produced food.

Sounds like a lot of hassle? Well you'll have to do it anyway eventually and if you dont you'll wear a home loan that take 30 years of hard work and diminishing returns to pay off instead of a few years shifting dirt.

Yeah, I remember watching that when it first aired.

I agree I'm self medicating. But also, maybe I'm okay with that, as long as it works?

>>531030
I'm actually like 2 years away from having my house paid off, so at least I'm on my way to financial freedom.

Maybe the added stressors at home are just overloading me. Like, I never feel recharged anymore. It used to be that a 2 day weekend was enough to recharge and go back at it on Monday. Hell, I even spent my Sundays volunteering.
I haven't volunteered in over 2 years though, because I feel like I'm already overextended as it is.

And with my job... It's an easy-going environment with good pay (it's why I've been able to pay off my mortgage so quickly) but in a way, it's also dead end. I never really had any career aspirations other than "earn money" and "live comfortably," which I'm basically achieving. But maybe I want more than that out of work.
But am I willing to sacrifice the stability and security I have now to go in search of that?
So far I haven't been, because it seems like giving up what I have would be foolish.
Also, I wouldn't even begin to know what I'm actually looking to get out of work that would make it feel "fulfilling" or "worthwhile."

I can see that I'm resorting to weed to more easily accept my current situation because I'm unable or unwilling to change it.

I know lots of people aren't even lucky enough to have this problem of finding fulfillment with their work, and are just struggling to survive.
But how does one go about figuring out what kind of work is meaningful to them?
Even in college, I just haphazardly picked a major based on what seemed vaguely interesting, without having any kind of actual passion for it.
And my current job doesn't even have anything to do with that.

How do people figure out what they want to do for a living?

So, I know QQ is saturated of relationship/loneliness advice.
Instead I come to you and ask: Are there any good references for a read/watch that you may want to share?

Just some details, if it makes any diference:
I'm a boring weird dude in my late 20's, got """lucky"""(long story), got into a thing with a girl recently for my first time, but it's not going anywhere, i got money coming on a just comfortable amount, i'm not super in shape but i jog on occasion - so, what solutions do i have?

Simply don't be afraid to make the mistakes you will make.
Don't purposely make mistakes, but know that experimenting with
what makes you and her happy is always good.

Be nervous, be anxious, let yourself feel and be honest about your lack of
experience with dating.

You...don't have to be honest about everything... or rather, you don't have to
indulge embarrassing things right away.

you like cats? volunteer at an animal sanctuary for a few months, move to a different sanctuary if that sanctuary doesn't have any hotties.

Trying to find a decent drug to use semi-regularly

In B4 weed or alcohol, I'm tested (specifically) for the 1st and allergic to the 2nd.

I'm trying to find something I can use moderately, maybe once or twice a week that is:
  1. Non-addictive or low habit-forming
  2. Minimal to low risk in terms of physical/mental harm
  3. High lasts 3-8 hours only
  4. Unlocks creativity (not required but would be great)

Basically I have one single day to myself (Monday) where I have 10 hours to paint and draw and lately to get anything out I have to be fucked up while I do it.

Are there options? I'm thinking if there are, it'll be a research chem..

I've been dicking around with h and ketamine on alternating weeks, but I mean... I'd rather not. I tend to prefer psychedelics, but if I do mushrooms or any 2Cs I have a hell of a time sleeping after. M is decent but I hate doing it solo, and I know long-term it affects my mood. Coke is fun but $$$$$$ and really not creative.

I will do anything, definitely will try something new, so I'm looking for recommendations/suggestions. I'd post this in Other but apparently no one lives there.

And this IS a personal issue because I feel so stuck, and.. mentally locked. Painting sober recently feels like a chore instead of feeling freeing, and cleansing like it normally does. I just want to get back some flow for a few months and remember how it feels to create with abandon. Bleh.

Except most people don't like smoking something that smells like a burning car filled with garbage and corpses regularly.

Try microdoses of mushrooms. You should be able to sleep with the right dose. Obviously it might take some trial and error.

I would even say combo a few different substances in threshold doses, switch it up week to week. If you're careful, which sounds like you might be, you can avoid any addiction or negative physical sides for years this way.

Are you on drugs too? Foxxy/Moxxy are NOT creative, mind-opening substances in the way a lot of the other suggestions are, they're exclusively tactile. But then again OP was painting on fucking heroin so uh

OP is gonna sit down to paint and wind up jerking it for 5 hours straight. Still not a bad way to kill a Monday I guess

Yeah, I kind of lean towards this. Obviously it wouldn't be as distressing to a guy in nearly the same way, but if they felt 1/10th as upset by it as I do (did! >>531006) I can't blame them for wanting to do everything in their power to correct it.

>I work out every day of the week and stick to a strict diet because I can't deal with the biological reality that my body wants to become fat and my legs want to atrophy because the reality of city living in a prosperous country means sugar is everywhere and leg strength is redundant in a sedentary world.

i would normally suggest Wellbutrin and ECA here but apparently that makes your hair fall out, go figure, but I also support this specifically as well, because as I mentioned in the thread, I've been on extreme, substance assisted cut that I started as soon as I fully realized what I'd eventually have to do in life. Went from 230 to 150 in a matter of less than 6 months. I pushed my body to its limit with cardio to lose fat and weight training to build muscle in its place. I remain completely undaunted as I slowly taper back up my caloric intake to not shock my metabolism while I continue to lose another 10-20lbs and learn to eat like a normal, healthy person while tapering down for the last time on supplements.

All this after YEARS of struggling with weight and eating, because size and weight have become important to me in a way they never were before

So I’m gonna start with my whole sad story and I’ll try to keep myself from going off on too many tangents to keep it short. I’ll put a tl;dr at the bottom because I say short meaning the short version of what I have to say- and I have a lot to say.

I’m not sure where to start, really. I’m bipolar as hell, been dragged from psychologist to psychiatrist to alternative school over and over throughout my child hood as I hid away in my computer. My parents divorced when I was 6 out of nowhere for reasons nobody really ever was honest about. My mom pulled the classic Oedipal complex and kept me away from all the social checks and balances I needed growing up. My dad was hardly around because of his job on top of the divorce. My little brother was effected by the divorce way more drastically and is still stuck in the terrifying state of a mamas boy with BPD.

I hid in video games throughout middle school and then drugs throughout highschool. I kept moving from social group to social group thinking this was what i needed to stop being a loser but I always ended up fucking a lot of people over and disappearing, once again isolating myself into sicker and sicker states. I went from a scrawny white kid playing minecraft to an awkward white kid smoking weed to a pale, tired kid drinking cough syrup before school, a psychotic borderline schizo kid with PTSD, to a jaded 20 year old with no future.

After getting kicked out of my first high school I ended up cutting off all my friends and my life consisted of cough syrup, weed, and driving my dealers around for money and drugs. After a while it was pretty clear that they could take advantage of me so I let myself be dragged around and made a bitch by intimidation and having little care for myself. Got guns stuck up to my head, blah blah blah. I finally wised up and disappeared on them just to end up being manipulated by another sociopath. And then one more.

By the time I finished high school I got PTSD for 4 different reasons. All of my grandparents died, my childhood dog died, my friend died of an overdose, my other dog got cancer, and I had psychosis from a mixture of drugs, trauma, and isolation. I’m still not sure if I’m done with it yet either. Sometimes I hear people screaming when I leave my fan on at night and get flashbacks to a bunch of snuff rape videos i came across when i was 15. Speaking of repressed emotional outbursts relating to female abuse, I somehow ended up with a girlfriend the year after and oooooh shit did this lead to some crazy things.

One guy had been having his friends sexually harrass her all year and I found out one kid tried to rape her the year before. So... I called up a psychopath that I’d promised myself I wouldn’t ever talk to again because it thought id learned my lesson from all the psychos before. But i didnt and called him up because i wanted to power of a crazy violent gang banger on my side. Long story short, someones car got broken into and a shit ton of stuff stolen, someones house has bullet holes in it and is now someone elses, im somehow not in jail by some miracle, the psycho threatened to kill me but then got arrested and locked up for years by another miracle, and now here i am some how alive.

So here I sit; I’m mourning my innocence, my lost loved ones, my childhood, my heart, my wasted potential.. and I’m stuck ruminating on revenge fantasies, terrible decisions that burden me with guilt, terrible things ive said, etc etc etc. I’m crying every night and want to quit my job and move away every day but snap out of it after a coffee and listening to my favorite songs. I flash back to terrible things I’ll never unsee randomly and I am constantly paranoid for myself, my girlfriend, and my loved ones for sometimes realistic reasons and sometimes just because of delusional paranoia. I have no idea how i became what I am but I hate it and wish I could go back. My IQ is ridiculous and I know I have so much potential in me but I feel overwhelemed by life constantly, have no reasonable path to go down, and have no way to go back from some of the things ive done to my reputation in this town.

Tl;dr my childhood was off, the internet and having no friends fucked up my head growing up, I can’t get alone with people, I fucked my head up even worse with reckless drug abuse, got traumatized and abused over and over, suffered psychosis, lost a lot of things I love, embarrassed myself constantly, put myself and everyone I love i…

The reason intermittent fasting works isn't because digestion takes so much energy, honestly both of you are just being dum dums right now. The reason IF works so well is because the restriction of carbohydrates (sugars in particular) lowers insulin levels so much.

Having higher levels of insulin effectively prevents people from losing weight and in particular burning fat as an energy source. IF is a sort of "hack" that involves utilizing a comprehensive understanding of how the body and metabolism works in a thoughtful and intelligent manner to produce effective results. As long as you actually know what you're doing and eat the right kinds of foods using IF, you can lose a lot of weight and be quite healthy.

hey dum dum, objective data can always be presented in a way that reflects confirmation bias. look at the studies and you will find conflicting data.
just watch and you'll find the government is eventually going to provide "studies" that veganism is the best diet. they're already doing it in my country, they're already pushing it. do you honestly think that any amount of vegetables fruit or grains will build your body as optimally as red meat? just look at it, look at the two foods without your faggy science and tell me that what they're saying is true.
i'm not talking to you because you obviously have made up your mind without having a legitimate opinion. do you think this is science man vs. the blind zealot? you're just some bored fag with confirmation bias and dunning kruger
i'm talking to the niggas that are too hopeless and feel too bad to even do a daily walk around the block. what do they have to lose? take it one day at a time, stop if it's too much, and shit will happen to you similar to me, like you'll get your sense of smell back, etc. i readjusted to regular food after 5 days and 60-80% of my emotional despair went away permanently. that's why i push it for free.
either way you're trusting something that is outside of your everyday experience. you're jerking yourself off over one of them
science can be good but if it makes you too much of a bitch to try anything, and if you merely let people make up your mind for you then you're a tremendous faggot
>I'm not going to explain why
what an effeminate thing to declare
do you guys think that your body randomly or automatically jumps to consuming your brain? you're a superstitious faggot, your body is intelligent and will enter in a disposition where it will use your fat gut to fuel itself. do you think only calories are contained in there? there's enough objective data in this thread to safely determine that you're a tremendous faggot, though some of you might be rightfully cautious because i'm obviously being hyperbolic. try a 3 day fast and i guarantee you'll feel way different, lighter. shit happened like my sense of smell came back, etc. do you think even 3 days will kill you or do permanent damage? then you're wrong and probably a little bitch, duh.
yes, when you give your digestive organs a chance to just chill then your body can heal itself, just like if you cut your finger. IF is obv better than constantly putting calories in but you won't get to the deeper levels of healing. it's good maintenance though.
regarding derr caveman objection, explain the amazing health benefits that both anecdote and studies attest to. there aren't really studies of hardcore prolonged fasting but that's because people like you are little crab bucket bitches
best way to lose weight is to simply not eat. you're not going to die and being obese is far worse for you but that's become normal so people stop caring
