I don't feel comfortable with an empty stomach. It doesn't make me feel normal. I am a food addict and spend most of my money on food in the process. I don't have any drug or alcohol addictions or cloth buying addictions. Just food. I eat a lot, but I don't gain weight easily because my metabolism is good, but it's not super high. I do a simple pranayama with just inhales, holds, long exhales, and holds. I also use stomach pulling during my exhales. My diet is mainly of organic, oat granola with lactose free whole milk, soft-boiled eggs, and organic supplements (garlic, multivitamin, zinc, and green tea capsules). I also take valerian root capsules when I go to bed (organic). The brands that I buy are from "Garden of Life" and "Oregon's Wild Harvest." Sometimes I drink a mixture of water, baking soda, and apple cider vinegar for enzymes and to raise my alkaline level with a specified measurement of both ingredients.
