Good Morning Simon. Forget to take your anti cranky pills again?
.. I jest.. I do always admire your posts when you call out bullish!t. You’re one of the very few on here that do. Carry on.
What "toxins" does dehydration clear?
Please provide some form of peer reviewed evidence of this.
Also, what toxins are you ingesting that you're worried about?
Perhaps avoiding the "toxins" would be the best path.
I did not say dehydration released toxins. I said hard dry fasting eliminates toxins faster. The toxins from the fasting part, the faster from the dry part.
Plenty of research about the benefits of fasting and time restricted eating.. Heck the discovery of the mechanism of autophagy and cellular degrading and recycling won the Nobel Prize a few years ago.
With regards to toxins. Anything that damages the body is a toxin. Your quip about avoiding toxins makes no sense. Everything is a toxin. Food, air, water.
This adage somes up the basic principle of toxicology.
“Poison is in everything, and no thing is without poison. The dosage makes it either a poison or a remedy.” - Parcelus
But back on topic, we’re talking about toxins being eliminated through fasting.
I was speaking broadly but as you want specifics I did a cursory google for an example.
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s).
“Research by exercise scientist Paul Arciero has found that a balanced, protein-pacing, low-calorie diet that includes intermittent fasting not only achieves long-term weight loss, but also helps release toxins in the form of PCBs from the body fat stores, in addition to enhancing heart health and reducing oxidative stress”
No I’m no expert on any of this, I just read what I can, and experiment on myself so I trust if what I have read has no merit you’d kindly say.
“His findings on toxins can help allay concerns that weight loss -- which releases toxins into the blood -- could have a negative effect on dieters' health.
Environmental pollutants and other toxins are stored in fatty tissue. During weight loss, fat breaks down and toxins are discharged into the bloodstream. Scientists have expressed concern that the released toxins could increase dieters' oxidative stress and their risk of developing serious conditions, including hormone (endocrine) disruption (reproductive and fertility problems), heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.”https://www.sciencedaily....17/01/170111184102.htm
Anyway. I enjoy fasting. I feel better for it and it’s helped me massively with my personal food battles and overall health. But I don’t like dry fasting.. it sucks balls but I’ve read it does have benefits which is why I tried it.
As i said in my original post, chronic dehydration is not good. But short term dry fasting is not bad. Do you wake up every half an hour for a sip of water while you sleep? Everyone goes with out water for a period of time. Everyone fasts for a period of time. It’s completely normal.
