Fast Metabolism and constantly starving

how are you drinking that much water? my char sounds like a camel in comparison they’d probably die from drinking that much

One nutriment water is 2000 calories. It’s not much to hork down.

Also, I’ll never not take an opportunity to post this when it’s relevant.

ah I was thinking of mineral water and sports drinks and stuff, my bad
love samonella but that story genuinely disturbs me

ok if anyone knows ow to put on weight fast that should help, I just need to get my characters weight back up to something healthy and try to maintainn that, should I eat raw butter or lard or something?

Yes. Lard is great for this purpose, but if you don’t care about their moral just down the chunks of fat straight. Keep anti-parasite handy, I can’t remember if raw fat gives you one. If you wish to avoid nutrition/vitamin concerns you can make wastebread cracklin sandwhiches. Has just about everything you need. Suplement liver for vitamin a every once in a while.

sweet, no more junk food for me, time to go hunting

quick question, is there any way to bypass overeating/nausea/not throw up from stuffing myself like roast dinner?
caus that would probably help my char gain weight alot faster

I think heartburn medicine allows you to eat a liiiitle more, but not much. Or it helps you keep it down. Haven’t quite fully figured it out yet.

Ill see if I have any laying around, hopefully itll help me sleep without losing too much weight

Weed will also help with nausea.

my 600 joints should come in handy then

on an entirely unrelated note, are shopping trolleys not a thing anymore cause while I do currently have a better ride, Id like to atleast make and have a crackhead chariot just for sentimental reasons

They’re still a thing. If you for some reason cannot find one you can make one.

save got buggered so started a new character, still took fast metabolism cause stamina regen is pretty nifty but also took gourmand cause I saw it lets me eat more, seems to help

Fast Metab does still seem a little dramatic, at least in the messaging.

I don’t think I’ve lost much actual weight (I should probably grab one of those new bathroom scales, hmm?), but I get pretty regular messages about needing more calorie rich food, which is more than a little giggle inducing when my character’s diet currently consists primarily of glazed ham, lasagna, and a virtually steady stream of chocolate/nuts as they wander around hacking down zeds.

A trait that makes you so calorie dependent that you can’t actually ingest enough food to survive seems like it should get updated - that or the messaging is just wrong?

Yeah, I’ve dealt with my hyper metabolism by literally just holding off on getting fully mutated before i get the recycler and expanded digestive system CBMs from shockers, scientists and others. I usually just hack them apart until i find all the CBMs I need then mutate. It’s still sort of a pain, but I get by. Gourmand and hyper metabolism still doesn’t prevent puking, or at least messages that i’m overeating. Then again, hyper metabolism used to be pretty overpowered since all I needed to do to heal to full was to butcher a zombie and chow down.

Oh, I’m not even talking about the actual mutation - just the starting character trait is apparently enough to force you to basically eat constantly to maintain weight.

that sounds like a bug to me.

Certainly feels like it. I get no health from having food “fill me out” and “convert” to hp, just some flavor text. I still puke from overeating too. It worked before the nutritional/food overhaul, so i’m guessing it’s having issues with it for now.

lil update, before I wasnt even activating gourmand so yeah that helps alot for when you wanna gain loads of weight, but if you do get overweight then just deactivate gourmand and dont bother eating until you get messages, i took hates fruit and veg caus either are only viable if im actively trying to lose weight and I prefer to just maintain my weight and be able to adventure for some time without having to worry about becoming emaciated
the expanded digestive system cbm can prettymuch negate the offset of fast metabolism and make gourmand unnessesary but surviving long enough without it is difficult enough to make gourmand still worth taking
multivitamins are my bane and my lifeline atm
