Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Oh shit you guys I totallly forgot!

    Guess what we get for dinner at the Hillel?
    Cold pasta salad.
    Falafel.
    Hummus.
    Lox.
    Herring.
    Gefilte fish.
    Basically, every single food that I find unbearably disgusting. That's what's for dinner.
    What does Celly eat for dinner?
    Cheesecake and blueberry pie. Fuck gefilte fish.

    fasting every other day and eating twice as much on your food days apparently has huge health benefits, particularly in regards to longevity

    at least in rats

    That one's kinda a "no shit?" situation.

    Eating about what your body burns just to avoid rotting away isn't a good idea.

    The fast and gorge thing seems counterintuitive, but so do lots of things.

    so I got to my cousin's house for 6:30
    she had invited us for 6:00 to break the fast but we had to get there late, which was fine

    we got there at 6:30 and her response was "Oh I should start cooking".

    ...

    we ate at 8:15

    so glad I didn't fast today that would have been terrible

    Makes sense to me: if an organism eats just enough to stay alive (in lab conditions, so they don't have to exert energy looking for the food), shouldn't the body default to the lowest possible operating mode, slowing down metabolism and thus wear on the body?

    There's a significant difference between saying something must be true because it makes no sense at all, and saying that something isn't necessarily untrue for differing from what one would assume.

    Um... how about the fact that even if it does extend life, you're not going to perform very well on CR while you're alive?

    They're just measuring how long the rats live. They don't care if they get lethargic or grouchy or forget how to integrate by parts. They don't give rats tiny little barbells to see how their strength holds up. I mean, if we're just talking physical performance, it should be pretty clear that fasting isn't good for you, or NFL champions/Olympic swimmers/etc would be doing it.

    I do have a friend who sometimes eats one meal a day for weeks (he's in the military and sometimes has to) and he swears up and down it's just fine. And of course Muslims do it during Ramadan. That probably doesn't do you any damage. It's still probably not the best for mental or physical performance, though, imo.

    in my personal experience it also has a lot to do with the quality of military cooking. or rather, military "cooking". usually the only meal that is in any way edible is lunch, so people cut down to only eating that.

    Dip is most definitely a suitable meal replacement.
