We are all wimps and it seems that kava is safer than water

    Ive dependably been on the thin side however I do feel that kava forestalls weight gain. Extremely inquisitive regarding why however. 40 bowls per day of kava appears excessive, on the off chance that he dozes no less than 8 hours per day (with that much kava you would need to!) Pnr Status TextNow VPN that is very nearly over two shells each waking hour..

    Have you been on a 12 hour binge too, verticity ? :p
    Maybe you should check into an ER, as a precaution. :)

    You would think, that it'd cause some health issues.
    But wait a second, isn't drinking 40 bowls of kava, the same thing as drinking 40 bowls of water, with the only difference being that root powder is added ? lol

    same thing happened to me and it helped me immensely. But I was obese and that took me to a normal BMI

    I lost a lot of weight, but I did not believe it was a direct effect from the kava.
    I was certain it was the result of fasting so much during the day, in order to get the best effects out of each kava session

    Same here I just felt a need to eat less more often because kava is filling. I've gotten the nausea and bloating but only when I was eating terribly while drinking kava and had a lot of micro. Kava otherwise is safe as far as I can tell. Maybe you'll experience some digestive issues or be too tired if you had too much at the wrong time. Like I couldn't go right to work after drinking my usual but in the morning even if I'm still pretty krunked my focus is fine if not better than usual. At worst I'm a little more slow but that's rare and it doesn't cause any other issues. Like today was one of the busiest days at work of the year I was still under the kava spell but I handled it just fine besides being a little more slow but then again I'm used to that. It's all up to the individual but one thing's for sure, kava isn't dangerous. If it was I wouldn't be here typing this.

    Yeah im not sure if its the kava or if I eat less. I know kava can be an appetite suppressant

    Congrats on the weight loss. Is there anything this plant won't do? Its only been a positive influence in my life

    Another interesting example of how kava affects us all differently.
    Rather than find it to be filling, I find it to be the exact opposite.
    Drinking kava multiplies and intensifies my appettite.
    I drink a few shells, and I'm just craving some kind of rich or meaty food, to the point I can't stand very long without eating.
    I wonder if you add a good amount of milk or something to your kava to make it filling ?

    Nope I add nothing to it, at most I tend to have some chips after, and as I go on for days in a row it only gets more filling. My breaks are more because that bloating in there tends to reduce how effective it is and to get more room for food outside of what I usually have for breakfast and lunch. Gotta fuel up sometimes, I'm on my feet a lot and tomorrow is one of those days. Probably one of the only things I don't like about kava.
