Have any of you heard anything about one's experience with fasting? I watched a very interesting documentary last night. Studies that were done behind the Iron Curtain during the Cold War. Not much info ever made it out to the rest of the world.

I have seen a lot in the media in the last couple of years about the 5:2 fasting structure where you eat "normally" on 5 days of the week but on 2 days of the week you fast, only consuming I think around 500 calories or less all day (might even be 300!). My mother and father in law do this, like many others. There's a doctor in the UK called Dr Michael Mosley who did studies about it, and trialled on TV himself. It's been very popular here

I've done fasting but only for a couple days by drinking water and broth only. Kind of a Faith thing for me. I've also fasted off things like movies, fasted off talking for a day and that was enough for me (LOL), fasted off my phone for a couple days, fast occasionally off of social media... Kind of renewing of the mind.

The program was referring to a fast that can last as long as 2, 3 weeks, or even up to 40 days. After getting through acidosis and detox it has been know to help many rheumatoid issues, inflammation issues, diabetes, bronchitis, asthma, depression/serotonin issues, kind of a reset for the body. Interesting concept. They point out that through the ages Humans didn't have a pantry & fridge full of food all the time. Industrial disease, basically. Of course, Big Pharma wants nothing to do with researching any of it.

Tim fasting is always a good thing in my opinion. I like the term industrial disease. It's very true. I don't know but I wonder if you could fast for 40 days and just eat rice and drink water.
