I took (and keep taking) glucomannan and I tried coconut oil in the Shangri-La protocol, drunk broth - and no matter what I did, in the end, after a few days of even mild, 14-16 hrs fasting window days, I binged and started to gain weight. It is not a character flaw, it is just that I do well on smaller, more frequent meals nowadays, both physically and psychologically. It actually allows me not to eat when I am not hungry. When i fast, I start exhibiting abnormal behaviors described in literature for the individuals who are derived of food. I hoard, plan meals, cook and shop for food obsessively, dream of food, crumble food in the tiniest bits, and can never have enough once I start eating. When I don't fast, I become a normal person who thinks cooking is a chore, and food is food, and have no problems stopping eating... because you know, i can always eat again if I am hungry, even if it is 8:48 am.
