Is anyone into fasting? I'm on my second water fast this month. I am doing this because a friend told me about new research that shows fasting generates stem cells, it also cleans out damaged mutated cells, and regenerates the immune system. I water fasted for 5 days and felt fabulous afterwards. I'm now on day 2 of second fast. I got into fasting as a teen, but bought a juicer 20 years ago and never water fasted again. So regret it now as juicing does not give these results at all.

It's as effective as colonic irrigation! I guess everyone has some shit to get rid of.

I fast regularly one a week. But if I'm really hungry, I will eat a piece of fruit or something. I practice Ayurveda.

I haven't tried it yet but I have heard very good things about it.

I would love to try a six day water fast, but I would need to be looked after I think.

I have fasted before, due to illness, and I felt great afterwards. It is anti ageing.

I have a friend who uses intermittent fasting. He looks great.

I've heard about it, never tried it. Yet.
