Hi I've never tried fasting, and I don't knock it. Fasting does have its benefits. Ive fasted a couple times in my life but really did not have much success. Some have success some don't. It varies frm person to person. Im just a person that does or keeps things as simple as possible if I can't I suppose if the black tea didnt work Id be looking at other possible solutions.. And for me drinking black tea does the trick when keeping down body odors associated with TMAU.
Remember, that a defective human gene called fmo3 is within every cell on our bodies so we therefore will never totally get rid of fhe horrific odors frm TMAU. Its also a hereditary thing from our parents!...Our cells when replacing themselves replicate and duplicate the defective fmo3 human gene. A person with TMAU will have this "thing" until someone figures out a cure for it. So one can only do things to keep the odor down. Im on meds so fasting is not good for me because I have to eat or take food with them. My thing is this: Whatever works for you :)....Take care.
