Hey everyone! I posted this Ori article not because I believe all his stuff lock stock and barrel. I did find the circadian rhythms parts quite interesting and those sections and info felt really right and resonated with me and my own experiences. If I stay up late, past or 11pm, 11:30pm or definitely midnight, I've noticed for many years/decades that I get hungry again, like 2nd dinner hungry! I've always been a high energy guy, always eaten a lot, as does everyone in my family pretty much, so when I was younger, eating extra meals never phased me. years ago, when I practiced hard core 2 hour Ashtanga Yoga pre-dawn every day, I would always skip dinner as I woke up empty, ready to roll on the mat. But I never slept as well as I did/do when I have at least a decent or even a small nutritious meal in my belly at dinnertime. I don't generally eat past 8pm, 9pm at the very latest, and only then if I'm famished.
Now in my 40s, the old ways no longer apply like when I was in my 20s & 30s. It's more than fine, I'm quite happy & much healthier on this PB adventure I/we are all on!
Whey shakes are quite different than pure unadulterated 90% isolate whey. Whether it's going to stop autophagy, I dunno. I wouldnt do whey or any protein on any fast.
MY basic rule of thumb, is always stay under 50 calories and avoid protein, sugar & carbs while fasting. For me, that means pickle juices (kimchi & sauerkarut juices), maybe a nibble of actual fully fermented kimchi or kraut, or a tsp of coconut oil or my cod liver oil, which is 10 calories per single serving ie 1 tsp. Ghee would be fine, but I would avoid butter, unless it's a tiny pat in your BP Coffee. I don't advise doing any combo of these options at the same time. I use them as a aid some days but not every day, they are intermittent aids if I feel like I need/want something, but they are not daily crutches. Mostly I just fast on water, which I know works.
Supplements especially antioxidants are a no-no from what I/we currently think is correct way to fast. As would be anything over 50 calories. Pure fat in limited quantities, or fully fermented juices, or salt water, nibbles of kimchi is you dare...Berries AND whey, no way! That's just my opinion...
