One thing I’ve realized during my 30+ year existence is that the human body is resilient/adaptable AF and everyone’s genetic makeup is different. You can survive on limited sleep as well as calories and have a strange diet for extended periods of time and still continue to perform well and not affect your cognitive abilities. However, if you start working out hardcore, either a ton or cardio, weight lifting, CrossFit or whatever, then there’s no way you can function without eating and sleeping properly. I challenge anyone. And no, I’m not just talking about going to the gym and getting a workout in. I’m talking about 30-45 mins of death - see the impact it has on you. Don’t care how much work you have, your caveman instinct will kick in and you’ll get HANGRY AF! Lol

A2, if you are really doing it, it extremely unhealthy and will face after effects. May be you are under 30, but lifestyle is not sustainable. I hope you have mini meals thru the day, some fruits at least.
For God's sake dont promote a 18 hour fast lifestyle.

OP, what works for someone doesn't have to work for you. I eat, enjoy eating and make it a point to try different cuisines. I was a SM at 11 years total work ex. Enjoy your food and no pressure on what others do.

I’ve trained my body to not need food at all. It actually works fairly well after a while. Some people do it as a diet routine, I do it as a lifestyle choice. 24 hours of fasting every single day. Forever.

Wearing Diapers and taking special supplements will give you all you need. Savings 1 hour for lunch and at least 20 minutes of bathroom breaks can be the difference between great work and fantastic work.

The higher you go up the more pressure/stress you have and it kills everything. So unhealthy. When I was an analyst I would always look forward to lunch and coffee, and now I’ve got so much to do, mealtimes feel arbitrary and the day goes by without me realizing. When I go home at night my body and mind are so exhausted. Not sustainable long term, imo

I have never addressed this issue in my career. Have you all? What are your suggestions? He’s a smart guy, a little rough around the edges but I fear that his external shabbiness (doesn’t spend time on grooming, clothes, and outward appearance) is what’s going to hurt his upward mobility the most in his career.
