Re: Salt

Let me rephrase my question: looking at nature, what's the use of salt being an appetite enhancer?

Re: Fictors Fasting Adventures

Welcome back :)
You could've sent an email so I could fix it. Still can, actually, if you want. Let me know :)

Re: Red scars

... my glycogen storage will still take 8-12 hours to get empty ... Yes, but only if you don't eat during that time. Compare it to a gas tank of a car with the motor running. It uses gas, but not as much as when actually driving. After a while the tank will be empty. If you drive, it empties faster...

Re: Red scars

In that case, why not spread your intake over the whole day?

Re: Be happy

If you haven't done it already, maybe it's a good idea to (re-)read Acne Sample Diet and Wai Start ? As always: make sure you eat (often) enough. Nowadays we don't need to worry about what is in season or not, since it's either grown in glasshouses or imported. If something is unclear, ask questions...

Re: Red scars

The concept of Wai Warrior is that you don't eat until the autophagy process starts and runs for a while. Autophagy only starts when your liver store is empty (the muscle stores don't count in this). It takes 8-12 hours of fasting to use up 400kcal. So for instance if you want around 4 hours of auto...

Re: Red scars

The main glycogen depot (for non-muscle activity) in the liver can only hold 400kcal, which lasts for about 8-12 hours, so after 5 hours of not eating, your depot is still partly filled. This is equivalent to the energy you get from 850ml of OJ, without added sugar or oil. Add to that energy needed ...

Re: Oil as a cause of insulin resistancy / diabetes?

What do you think of the info presented in the diabetes article?
Usually in food discussions there is no differentiation between heated/cooked and raw, which makes distinguishing correct from false far more difficult.

Re: Red scars

Drinking 500ml of OJ per half hour is quite a lot. This will spike your blood sugar once your glycogen depots are full. Also, 16 egg yolks in a relatively short time might aggravate your acne as well.
