RE: Intermittent Fasting
I didn't fast during Christmas or New Years. This is my first fast of 2019.


I usually have trouble breaking past 72 hours but I'll see this time.

I do salt + potassium + magnesium + multivitamin.


This time I've learned to drink the electrolyte water slower. I noticed on 2 previous fasts if I chug it down fast then I just get the shits lasting forever and my heart goes crazy (because of dehydration). For some reason I can eat 3500mg of sodium during normal food but if it's in water then the consumption has to be slowed down.

RE: Intermittent Fasting
I make a drink with apple cider vinegar and a teaspoon of potassium salt. With it I take a magnesium and a zinc supplement. That does the electrolytes for me.

First time I heard that about sodium, but with potassium you have to be careful--you can get hyperkalemia. Hypernatremia is apparently is also possible.

I am afraid that women appreciate cruelty, downright cruelty, more than anything else. They have wonderfully primitive instincts. We have emancipated them, but they remain slaves looking for their masters all the same. They love being dominated.

I suspect that's why I couldn't find potassium salt substitute in Taiwan. Since pure potassium allegedly has almost no taste to it and apparently it used to be used as a 100% lethal poison (and is still used as a method of lethal injection in certain countries).

Anyway I had to go with a dietary salt that is like 52% potassium and 48% sodium.

Although I wonder if this URL has the numbers wrong. Apparently fatal levels of potassium can only be achieved by eating in excess of 100,000 mg. One would probably have to eat a quarter bag of Potassium substitute to get to that amount or half a jar of dietary salt.
