Big congrats on the weight loss and getting an active life style that includes activities with your kiddos!!!

Curious as to what the maintenance program would be like? Unfortunately, I don't have face book... Is the maintenance just shorter fasting periods?? I have done the Keto eating and it worked great. I am some what off it for now and dragging/feel very low energy. I am fixing to start with some of your ER water to see if my problem is related to low minerals.

Thanks Pedernal! Maintenance is easy and depends on the person and their activity level. Most people know already what is a good maintenance lifestyle already. Once they break their food addictions through fasting it will be easy to adopt. ER water is great for anyone. My friend is using it because he works out all the time and his body is craving it. Your low energy might be from hormones also. Fasting shoots up your HGH and test. HGH is the master hormone regulator and should help with that so don't count out the fasting. It will only make your situation better.

I know what you mean. I sleep deeper and wake up w tons of energy like 1-2 hours earlier every day I'm fasting. It's like my body is telling me to get up and kill something and eat!!!

Congrats on the weight loss. Starving myself is not my idea of healthy eating as you put it, but it obviously produces results. I lost 30 lbs last year just changing the way I eat but definitely not fasting. I feel that is not long term sustainable for the majority of people.

I have cancer (melanoma 3C, which means it spread to lymph nodes) and read some studies where patients on chemo benefited from fasting after treatment, if I get sick I may try it. But I don't start that until the end of the month.

Hey brother! Fasting eats up cancer. Sugar feeds it. Please watch (if you haven't already) The Science of Fasting on amazon prime or YouTube. The results for cancer patients is amazing. Also the study on there where the patients fast to boost their immune system and weaken the cancer cells before chemo is amazing. After watching that please join the Fbook page and learn how to properly fast. I will personally help you whip this cancer. Don't play around. You need to get your body into autophogy ASAP. It's the renewal of your cells. The guy who won the nobel prize 1.5 yrs ago won it for his research into autophogy which kicks in after fasting for 24-48 hrs.

I like Cole but I can't take the yelling/cussing. He was skinny when he started fasting so I can't really identify with his journey. Also he doesn't even drink the snake juice he said. He only drinks **** for electrolytes so he's pretty far out there. Might be why he's always ******! He also pushes that everything Jesus and all his miracles did were due to fasting. People in his group have a lot of knowledge on fasting and are very helpful...

Rich I joined your FB but I really can't stand FB so I'll post here I'm 42 hours in right now. Golfed in the heat yesterday, went to the gym this morning, did my lawn just now - so no energy issues. However, I slept worse last night that any time in recent memory. Thought I'd be tired and would sleep well but I may have only gotten an hour total.

Drinking your ER water now. Gonna see if I eat tonight or have a small breakfast before golf in the morning. Needed something to help my keto stall and I hope this is it.

Hey Tex. I'm always on here so no problem. I've got a lot of questions because 1 hour of sleep is horrible. How much sleep do you get normally? Are you in Ketosis by now? Fasting Forced ketosis might make you sleep deeper once you get into it. Should happen in 24-48 hours of fasting. There are a few reasons for not sleeping on a fast. Your body is producing more norepinephrine, a hormone that makes you energized and alert, so you can go out and hunt. I usually sleep a couple hours less per night when fasting and I hear this is typical. Your body is also producing histamines to fight the toxins being processed. Just as anti-histamine meds make you drowsy--histamines have the opposite effect. Also, your body is not spending time with digesting food which used to take up to 65% of your energy. That's why you have lots of energy. Your body is also burning fat instead of sugar--fat is a far more efficient fuel and energy source so in the beginning you will have an abundance of energy until your bodies energy pathways become more efficient. You also don't need as much sleep as you 're used to--you will be able to get by on a lot less. Try exercising or give yourself a foam roller massage before you go to bed. Cold showers. Like 10-15 min. Wears you out like a cardio workout. I hear an Epsom salt bath also helps. Also, count back wards from 100 (seriously). Drink a glass of plain camomile tea (1 glass of water 2 camomile tea bags) and it helps staying sleep. Also can try Alkaline Water, Lavender Oil, Chamomile Oil mix buy spray bottle (or diffuser) and spray around room and on pillow helps calm the body. If still not sleeping on a fast than try eating some Garlic cloves. Technically this breaks the fast but only the autophagy. Not the fat burning. Sleep is critically important.

Yeah I think he would get his message across better curving the language and like you I do not agree with him spiritually. I have some friends that followed his Snake Juice recipe. One started after bad doctors visits and test results. Three months into it Dr. was impressed with results and test are all normal now. So yes fasting is healthy if done right.

Your body is also burning fat instead of sugar--fat is a far more efficient fuel and energy source so in the beginning you will have an abundance of energy until your bodies energy pathways become more efficient. You also don't need as much sleep as you 're used to--you will be able to get by on a lot less. Try exercising or give yourself a foam roller massage before you go to bed. Cold showers. Like 10-15 min. Wears you out like a cardio workout. I hear an Epsom salt bath also helps. Also, count back wards from 100 (seriously). Drink a glass of plain camomile tea (1 glass of water 2 camomile tea bags) and it helps staying sleep. Also can try Alkaline Water, Lavender Oil, Chamomile Oil mix buy spray bottle (or diffuser) and spray around room and on pillow helps calm the body. If still not sleeping on a fast than try eating some Garlic cloves. Technically this breaks the fast but only the autophagy. Not the fat burning. Sleep is critically important.


Thanks Rich. Yeah I was in ketosis when I started fasting and have been getting dark strips since yesterday morning.
