  • More Human than Human?

    So this is just a general Primal post. Maybe it belongs in a different section but oh well. Yeah I stole the title from a White Zombie song but it directly relates to what I'm going to talk about. In short, I feel more human than human right now.

    I'm sure others have had similar experiences but I'm curious to hear it first hand. Since switching to primal, do any of you guys/gals have times where you just feel...different?

    Let me explain. I just went to the driving range then to the gym while pulling a standard 16hr IF. I broke the fast with a glass of (slightly watered down) coconut milk, 3 pieces of bacon, 3 eggs, and then a glass of raw milk. I felt great during the fast and now I feel unreal. It's like I'm mentally, physically, and spiritually at peace/invincible. Like nothing could negatively affect me. It kinda feels like I'm "in the zone" except I'm not doing anything. This has happened to me several times since making the switch.

    Anyone else have any idea what I'm talking about? Or am I just sounding like a lunatic?

      It certainly feels different at times yeah. For instance training while on IF, I might be a bit hungry before training, but during and right after. Not at all hungry and I feel great.

      The grain induced cotton ball in my brain is long gone, that is for sure...

        that's why i say it's an enlightening experience. IFing doesn't make us feel like zombies like it would your average person on a modern diet.
        "I know what my body needs and what it can handle. There's no better way to achieve my goal than what im doing now. If my regimen leads to my death, be it in six days or six months...I will die fullfiled. The outcome is irrelavent so long as i steer towards my fate. If death is to be my prize, i welcome it with open arms."

          There are many times (usually at night during my post feeding/pre-bed routine) where I just feel like a beast. Unfortunately that feeling usually leads to me being unable to sleep... ... maybe I need to eat earlier... *shrug*...

          either way...I love that feeling (I quite frequently have the same feeling in the morning pre-feeding)

            Having studied and meditated on all that I have over the past 3 or 4 years, I find that I can't take civilization and its daily "problems" very seriously anymore. I don't worry. I would love to be stranded in a downpour somewhere, just for kicks. I just quit my job so I could spend the summer outdoors, painting and playing.

                Ooh, that happened to me this winter. Came home so wet I had to strip nekkid in the entryway so as not to drip on the carpet. Sooooo terrific!

                  Haha that's how I read the title just like it's sung. More Hu-man Than Hu Man!

                  I know how you feel. Next time break your fast with a hunk of meat that you just took of the BBQ and tear it off the bone with no utensils.

                      I guess it shows just how old I am. I didn't think song title (1995) when I read the post title, I thought of this quote:
                      "More human than human" is our motto.
                      Tyrell: Blade Runner--(1982)

                      And yes, at times you feel pretty darned good.

                          ^^ Yeah I'm just a kid so no clue what ya'll talking about!
                          I was thinking I hadn't really felt like that, but the downpour comment flashed a light.
                          Just last week after a strenuous bodyweight/KB workout I got caught in a storm riding ma bike home.. Rain and hail was just pounding down on me and I was barely moving forward due to the strong winds, and while everyone else took cover under buildings I just kept on riding and started laughing thinking how fun it was..

                            I've only been semi-primal for a year, and I don't generally do the IF thing. However, once I year I do fast for Ramadan, which means zero food and zero water from sunrise till sunset for a whole month. It wasn't too hard before (you get used to it) but by end of the day, man was I exhausted, and hungry, and thirsty, and pretty much counting the minutes till sunset.

                            Since switching to primal, I had to fast last summer during Aug/Sep in the Arizona desert with 100F temps during the very long days, and my having to walk on campus EVERYWHERE! For me, that was what convinced me of primal eating. I felt so completely different than before, lots of physical energy, lots of "thinking" energy which is the hardest part about fasting, and I did not feel dehydrated or thirsty during the day. At the end of day, when it was time to eat, I wasn't that hungry, I was more "meh, okay, I guess I'll eat." I loved it! It was like I was superwoman
