Happy Spring, scrawny people!

I'm on 15-17% CR again for the past six months, including water-only fasting stints, and I'm wondering about your take on nutrition in commercial brands of Kombucha, e.g., GT's?

I've even done some kombucha fasts, oddly enough, wherein I drink only water or kombucha and don't consume anything else. When refeeding, I'm drinking hideous amounts of it, like 36-64 oz per day, and is it healthy, kombucha from the store, or should I begin the weaning process?

GT's kombucha seems to round off some vitamin and nutrient deficiencies as seen in my cronometer dailies, I like it, it's delicious, it's expensive, it's habit-forming.. is it also junk food?

Some call it "the elixir of life" ;)  Its essentially just fermented tea, I'm not convinced its all that good for you.  Dr. G did a short video busting on it:

 

 

A friend of mine makes his own, its really easy and inexpensive.
