Don't forget to fast before you trip!
    #2927721 - 07/26/04 02:55 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

My roommate and I dosed 1/8th each on Friday, but we made the mistake of eating right beforehand! I had a huge plate of spaghetti, and he went to Wendy's and had an entire #6 combo.

The comeup was just SO slow...we couldn't figure out if we were even tripping or not! Finally..after a confusing 2.5 hours (along with a couple bowls) the trip started to get in gear. However, by that point it was just a light/medium trip, and it was really hazy. Not a lot of mental trip, or visual trip. It was just...muddy, but enjoyable anyway.

I'm sure that if I hadn't eaten all that food, the trip would have hit much faster, and harder, and it would have been much different.

I always hold a policy of only having a light meal 4+ hours before the planned trip time.

not eating for 12 hrs beforehand really keeps me from getting the pukes.
im not sure if it is mental or acctualy works but i never eat before a planed mushroom experiance.

i tried to get my friends to try it but the will not and they end up feeling queasy... oh well.

i have also seen people eat an 1/8th right after they had a big meal, and then 1 hour latter they are complaining because "i'm not trippin hard enough"..
oh welll.............

There's really no need to fast IMO, but like mentioned above, I believe it's a good idea to ingests the shrooms on an empty stomach. Not eating 4 - 6 hours before works fine.

That's exactly the problem we had. 1 hour later we were expecting to be in lala land, but it just wasn't happening. All that food in my stomach slowed down the process so much.

Personally I begin to feel like absolute shit if all I've eaten all day is the mushrooms. I like to eat a light meal a few hours before hand, like soup, just so I have something in my stomach.

The WORST thing I've ever experienced was when I had fasted for a full 12 hours and then ate the mushies.

The come down was horrible. I was so weak I could barely move, and felt sick to my stomach. I tried to eat stuff, but I couldn't force it down because I was still tripping a little and couldn't chew or swallow right. I ended up eating a few baby carrots, but even that was incredibly hard.

Now whenever I trip, I just eat a light meal, like a salad or sandwhich 4 hours before I plan to trip.

yes, i'm completely against fasting. your body and mind needs fuel for the trip, so light and possibly healthy meals hours before the trip is perfect. i like to just feel thoroughly digested before i eat the mushrooms.

I don't find fasting to make for a good trip either. Low blood sugar+mushrooms=bad trip for me. I agree with the eat 3-4 hours before liftoff crowd. I like to have snacks available too, in case I start feeling really hungry.

personally, i'm not to worried about how intense every trip is. if i want intense, i eat more shrooms. if i don't eat for even half of a day, i start to feel sick from hunger pains. that's just me though.

I'd kind of like to hear more from the people who DON'T recommend fasting. I figured I would fast for like 6-8 hours, but if you guys feel sick when doing so, I'm sure I'll feel sick. I puke on everything. So a light meal about 3-4 hours beforehand? Maybe a salad or something?

How long does it take for the stomach to digest?

The way I play it out is to eat a decent light meal about 1-2 hours before I ingest. This way the food is still in my system, but probably mostly out of my actual stomach.

Never had a problem like that...

However, the few times I've ingested on an empty stomach the come-up was VERY rocky, and I felt like I had poisoned myself. Eventually I forced down some bread, which was very difficult, and I felt a little better. Then I was able to get my mind off of it, and it pretty much went away.

I like to eat before I go in, fast come ups have messed with me so far. I puke too, so I think im just going to start making tea or whatever.

I swear by that now. I usually eat some fruit, or a salad, or even a bit of pasta or bread.
