"It really should not cause dehydration. Doc Berardi never says to limit fluid intake. If taken to the extreme (REALLY extreme) it could potentially cause "water intoxication" when you drink so much that you piss out all of your…"

"He is looking at intermittent fasting as a means of achieving a fitness/nutritional goal; not a religious one. Jesus has nothing to do with it. Be sure to keep that in mind for future reference."

Sean O' replied to Tayton Mahone's discussion I'm going to try Intermittent Fasting. Anyone else had ago? Anyone have any results?
"I have not tried it, but Doc Berardi is well respected in the fitness and nutrition community and feel it would be worthwhile. I would be very interested in hearing your results."

"No worries. I think I have read all of them in the Sharpe's series and enjoyed every one of them. I haven't read any of his others yet, but I would imagine they would be just as entertaining."

"The Sharpe's Rifles series of books by Bernard Cornwell are fantastic. Good action-adventure/historical fiction taking place during the Napoleonic Wars."

Quote
God told Moses to send men to spy out the land of Canaan. He told him to send a man from each tribe. Twelve men were sent. They were to find out about the land and the people in the land. Moses said to find out if the people were strong or weak. Did they live in cities or in camps? He wanted to know what the fruit of the land was like, and if they had forests or not. He asked them to bring back some of the fruit that was ripe.

"Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled"


THE PILGRIMS :
We are the Pilgrims, master; we shall go
Always a little further: it may be
Beyond the last blue mountain barred with snow,
Across that angry or that glimmering sea,
White on a throne or guarded in a cave
There lives a prophet who can understand
Why men were born: but surely we are brave,
Who make the Golden Journey to Samarkand.

"We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm." ---George Orwell on a BBC broadcast, April 4, 1942


"When the highest and strongest drives, breaking passionately out, carry the individual far above and beyond the average and lowlands of the herd conscience, the self-confidence of the community goes to pieces, its faith in itself, its spine as it were, is broken: consequently it is precisely these drives that are most branded and calumniated. Lofty spiritual independence, the will to stand alone, great intelligence even, are felt to be dangerous; everything that raises the individual above the herd and makes his neighbour quail is henceforth called evil."

Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil, 1886, 201


"Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you. He is training with minimal food or water, in austere conditions, training day and night. The only thing clean on him is his weapon and he made his web gear. He doesn't worry about what workout to do - his ruck weighs what it weighs, his runs end when the enemy stops chasing him. This True Believer is not concerned about 'how hard it is;' he knows either he wins or dies. He doesn't go home at 17:00, he is home. He knows only The Cause. Still want to quit?"

"I'm just not seeing the benefit. 800k new insurance sign ups, and $1 trillion spent. Then people like Steve are still uninsured. So what's the point exactly? To spend a shot load of money to say, "oh we tried"?"
