Empty/Full Stomach for shrooming
    #2431818 - 03/14/04 06:09 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Question: as far as maximizing potency, should you eat anything for a few hours before you trip? Do some foods (mild MAOIs?) actually boost potency. What foods do this? What foods counteract shrooms?

THanks for the opinions.

Well on an empty stomach shrooms can be absorbed faster/ better. For maximizing potency you should try to fast, or just not eat anything for a while.

I forget if this has been debunked or not, but drink orange juice and vitamin C. Regardless, you will absorb it much faster on an empty stomach than on a full one.

The thing I hate about eating shrooms on an empty stomach is the fact that after I get done eating them, I'm starving, it starts screaming "Hey asshole, put some food in here or I'm just going to spit this up." :smile:  But if you do put food in, you're just making a mixture in there, and are going to lose some of your trip.

I always dose on a full stomach ( I make cubensis soup & have bread with it )& I have never noticed any loss of potency or it taking a long time to kick in. I am usually coming up after about 20 minutes. I have a fast metabolism though.

Yeah, I'm the same. I think in future I'll have a decent amount of food a few hours before the trip. Otherwise my stomach starts eating iteself :smile: :crazy:

I always have a much better time if I've had a light meal a few hours before eating fungal desserts. Fasting doesn't improve anything for me and leaves me more prone to nausea and general distress in the GI tract.

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

I'd say just make sure you are not running on completely empty. The most horrifying trip I've ever gone through both physically and mentally, I am pretty sure was due partly to not having eaten anything to speak of that day.

Stick to light, easy foods, especially avoiding fats and spices the day of your trip. Bread is good. Melba toast or petit beurre cookies are your dear, dear friends.

I totally agree. One of the last times that I shroomed recently, I took them on an empty stomache, and the whole time, during the comeup, I was just really dwelling on how hungry I was, but I was too fucked up to fix anything. I ended up having kindof a bad comeup that time. I usually feel much better if I eat about 2 or 3 hours beforehand, and have some light snacks on the ready for when I start to come down. Alot of people say fasting is the only way to go, but I have not found that to be the case.

I don't eat at all the day I trip but I don't get hungry either. I would think something like fruit or a salad would be best. How about fruit salad?!!!

i always dose on an empty stomach,i usually fast about 2 days before. I think it does make the trip more intense, also i think its better not having anything in your stomach when nausea sets in. This along side meditating before dosage, forms a great ritual before entering "the other place"

I have a very simple system.

I just make sure I have a healthy meal about 1 hour before I'm planning to eat the mushrooms. The food does not have to be out of your SYSTEM before you eat them, just out of your stomach. With this system I get 20 minute come-ups and I don't have to worry about food for a long time.

On a full stomache you'll feel better internally because the shrooms are saturated with other stuff so it doesn't freak your stomache out as much.

On an empty stomache you'll trip harder though :wink:

As far as eating, I just stop eating and start drinking water 4 hours before munching down  :mushroom2:

I personally try to fast for a day. I like thinking that I'm "purifying" my body for the shrooms...getting the temple ready, so to speak.

Bleh, I'm a smaller guy but I absolutely can NOT run on an empty stomach.

I always eat a decent amount throughout the day. And when I trip, there's food in there. I think it may be my metabolism but I sometimes trip 15 minutes after consuming mushrooms. Normally it takes about 20 minutes, then at 25 minutes I'm really happy.

I'd rather be full and happy than scrounge up my money and worry about a couple measly grams going to waste. Isn't that what it's all about? When I trip I don't want ANY worries what so ever.
