    It will just take longer to come into effect when you eat close to the
    time you dose. The duration/potency isn't changed, just the onset.



    Your on personal metabolism depends too

    Also, nausea is less likely to be a problem on an empty stomach.

    I always eat a little bit of something light about an hour and a half
    before eating mushrooms-just to keep my energy up, otherwise I find the
    last hour of my trip to be a low-blood sugar situation. Usually after
    the peak I force myself to eat a banana, some yogurt or a piece of
    bread-and believe me, it keeps me from getting a headache at the end
    and makes it easier on the comedown in general. I think that people
    sometimes would rather dry-heave than throw up their food-and that has
    lead to the empty-stomach practice, as well as the shamanic tradition
    and the faster/harder come-up that an empty stomach provides. I am
    getting too old to fuck with my stomach, so I try to protect it if I
    can, even if it means not getting as much out of my 'shrooms.

    Eating mite lessen the nausea which is minimal anyway. SWIM prefers to do it on an empty stomache so they kick in quicker, the potency wont change on ethier though

    I would recommend something like some yogurt, fruit or something easy on the stomach about half an hour beforehand.

    An emtpy stomach would probably help greatly to reduce nausea. Drinking water during the ride is a very good thing, but drinking some juice may prevent the need to eat food. Some people find it nearly intolerable to eat anything during a ride. One thing a person might avoid is drinking too much juice or juices that are very acidic as this can potentially upset the stomach and cause a spontaneous ejection.

    I have sold some mushrooms to someone who ate before he took an eighth. Now he ate a full dinner and figured that an eighth with the potency of these mushrooms wouldnt be a problem. Well to make a long story short he never tripped that day. So i gave him a free 1/2 an 1/8th a few days later and told him not to eat 6-12 hrs prior, he tripped balls that night


    So food might not take away the potency but it also takes more to trip

    You can always have a feast during the experience. Food tastes so good when you're on a nice trip. I recommend Mexican or Italian.
