      I was watching a pop science BBC doc. on fasting. I have fasted in the past for general health but the latest research suggests that fasting is a catalyst for new brain and brain stem nerve cells. Sweet. So I'm in the middle of a 24hr fast now and plan on fasting for 24hrs, no food whatsoever just water and coffee, once a week for a while. Anyone else fast before?

      Hi there Leo! I will start doing it myself once a week. Dear @joseph Ghass here on the forums is a strong believer in this and it surely is worth a try. If it doesn't help the T, it will most probably make your health (and waist line) a favor.

      I've gone back to my regular healthy way of eating, after trying all sorts of diet regimes. My T or hearing loss hasn't changed one bit, either way. Imo, don't deny yourself, in eating or drinking what you want. That is, as long as it's not fast food or processed food.

      Hi guys, yes IF is very beneficial.

      what I recommend is doing IF + Fast

      for the first month Fast 24h per week than next month do one 3 days fast than next month do 5 than 7.

      more than 7 should be supervised.

      I heard one case reversed his hearing loss with 21 days Fast.

      God bless u all and good luck!

      Good luck to all of you all who can cope with fasting...I just can't (weak willed, and once my blood sugar gets low, I am a despotic worm who will bite the head off anyone). The idea of adding one discomfort to another (fasting to tinnitus) is more than my little brain can handle.

      I can't imagine tearing round looking after my smallholding on a grumbling stomach, muscles feeling like jelly, and a pounding migraine which is what fasting does for me. I'm not built with a lot of reserves, so soon get ketotic, sick feeling and sorry for myself once I've been without food very long.

      I'm sure that fasting is a good thing if the day is likely to be quiet and calm (not sure about drinking coffee at the time, though). My days are chaotic, unpredictable and unplanned. With lambs soon to be born, I will also be up during, and sometimes all, night.

      Can anyone really hold down a full-time active job whilst fasting? (Or do those employed folk fast at weekends and when they are on holiday). If folk fast whilst off work, haven't they saved up a hundred (often very physical) jobs to be done?

      I'm really seeing myself as terminally weak-willed now!

      Thankfully, diet doesn't influence my tinnitus, so I'll keep my chocolate bars in my pocket....I genuinely thank God that I am not diabetic.

      I'm so depressed with T that many days I don't eat. Does that count? Don't have to worry about the waistline as I'm down to 52kg.

      Yeah, but anxiety and depression are a strike against neurogenesis from what I've read(very little). Probably a bigger negative than fasting is a positive.

      Eating raw coconut oil while otherwise fasting! I bet that's a great combination. I'll do a little bit of that tonight.
