    Cutting down on the omega 6 that's in so many foods also helps a lot.

        Water helps to maximize physical performance, hydration has a major effect on energy levels and brain function, drinking water may help to prevent and treat headaches, drinking more water may help relieve constipation, drinking water may help treat kidney stones...

          I've not done water fasting. But I've done fasting without any food, water for 15 hours. It's really good to reset your whole body.

            After a year I used this "shelter-in-place" home time to do another water fast.

            I did 40 hours this time.

            I felt good, and it did lean me out a bit. As they say (hope it's correct) you hit Ketosis at the 13 hour mark, if you didn't eat a lot of sugar and refined carbs for your last meal. If so, it's about the 16 hour mark.

              ^Oh ya, that's interesting.
              I have been in ketosis for about three months.. but it is because I haven't been eating sugar and very low carb. If I cheat I usually get kicked out of ketosis which isn't fun.

              I have never done a water fast. I have done the intermittent fasting 16 hour before, but not in awhile. I need to do that again soon. Has all kinds of benefits.

                Yeah, the thing about these youtubers is that I take the information they present that is beneficial to me and use it.

                Being it's free, it's a win-win situation.
