or just be healthy
and fast and take some vit C when fasting...along with some eggwhites(lysine.proline) and when you DO eat
eat some veggies/fruit, stuff containing vit C
fasting is only going to help you , it wont hurt you
remember, you train your body to be hunger
the traiing takes months to weeks and is broken like this:
Released primarily from the stomach, ghrelin goes to the brain where, predictable, there is a specific receptor. Among other functions, ghrelin raises levels of growth hormone. But that’s far from all.
Ghrelin also stimulates hunger (the only hormone so far found to do so) and appears to be a key hormone in initiating the hunger that goes along with meals; ghrelin drops prior to hunger and injection of ghrelin stimulates hunger specifically.
So if you normally eat at 3pm (or whatever), you’ll likely find yourself becoming hungry at 3pm; this appears to occur from changes in ghrelin. I suspect this explains why people often have problems changing meal frequency, at least until ghrelin re-entrains itself to the new frequency.
That is, moving from a higher to lower frequency of meals is often accompanied by hunger at the previously ‘normal’ meal times. Moving from lower to higher is often accompanied by a lack of hunger until the body adjusts to the new frequency. I haven’t seen any work examining how long this takes but empirically it seems like it’s a couple of weeks or so.
Increased ghrelin also negatively impacts on pretty much all aspects of metabolism, slowing metabolism and increasing fat storage, at least it does this in rats with daily infusion.

yet russians and leangains.com are all about 12-24hour fasts and they(russians) report better health from fasting,,maybe cause fasting lowers IGF-1
higher IGF-1, higher levels of inflammation
