    Yeah.... I occassionally get a little extreme (the idea of restrictive fasting, etc.)... and as far as the passing out... well, I took the advice of my (especially odd) raw food friend... who... well, he was voted "Greenest person in Sacramento" and I'm starting to get the impression that he cares more about the environment and animals than he does himself/humans. On a random note, when we went on a walk... he started picking fruit from random front yards and eating it (I don't know- I thought that was.. different)... and we had to avoid all streets with overhead power lines and running cars... or he would refuse to go forward. hahahaha

    Your friend sounds...well....."interesting". I think I will stick to eating T-bone steak god knows my body doesn't need any more abuse. On the other hand does anyone know a good/safe/sane way to detox your body without the side effects of passing out and potentially calling 911?

    Some people at work are doing a detox at the moment, they haven’t eaten for 4 days, all they’re having is some weird concoction from what looks like an olive oil tin with freshly squeezed lemons and water. They keep saying how hungry they are. I don’t get it. I like eating.

    Last time they did it to help quit smoking. Think they decided over a ciggy to give it another go

    I believe that's our liver's job - to cleanse, detox etc, so I don't think going on a 'special' diet is really that beneficial. I doubt any of these diets have been scientifically proven - just a craze thats been going on for a number of years. Best advice - eat plenty of vegetables and fruit, wholegrains, legumes daily - there is an abundance of good scientific evidence out there in support of this.

    If you want to "clean" your body. Start a highly varied 1850-2350 kcal diet filled with complex carbohydrates, highly limited amount of saturated fats, high amounts of vitamins and proteins. And for gods sake, don't ignore meat, don't over eat it but don't become a stupid vegan. Seperate all of this into 5-8 small meals.

    Oh yes, one more thing. This is an eternal diet, meaning, you do not quit it.

    i have to say I fast everytime food is not available to me.

    Srsly... I like food. and I like the feeling of food in my tummy. and I like knowing I won't pass out from not eating. Im such a puss when it comes to this.. If my tummy growls, I think my brain is trying to eat itself alive

    I have fasted before, mostly just because I like experimenting with things. I realized that even though billions of people in the world are hungry, I'd never felt hungry before. Even my coworkers complain that they are "starving" when they haven't eaten in 7 or 8 hours. I never feel hungry. I always eat way before I feel hungry. So, my first and longest fast was 3 full days. I only drank water. It wasn't that bad at all. I felt fine. I think I was starting to feel hungry on the second day. On the third day, I started to feel weak and light-headed so I decided to eat. I ate a double burger in like 10 seconds and it was the most euphoric eating experience of my life!

    Other times, it was just to build some discipline and realize that I don't always need to be snacking on something. I frequently go over 12 hours without eating (sleeping, then skipping breakfast) and I don't feel hungry whatsoever.

    I think for health reasons, I'd rather just eat healthier foods.

    I have one of these friends too and it is really strange because she won't go near power cables either... She is real extreme with the food side of things too and i can't say she's very healthy as a result!

    I saw this study about a guy who weighed.. I don't remember the number but something like 500lb. Back in the 60's he agreed to be starved down on weight, and they gave him just vitamins and water.

    I think it was two years before he "needed" to eat again, and had lost 300lb or so in the process. Fat is designed to be a food source when we are in a famine period.
