    Saw it on telly the other night and looked like it does you a lot of good in one way or another... wondering if anyone has had any first hand experience? Any highs and lows? Right way to do it... wrong way to do it?

    yeah, not eating. The telly programme was about 4 celebrities doing a de-tox kinda thing and fasting for a week, drinking 'de-tox shakes' and having a load of enemas every day.
    i would like to try this but obviously... WITHOUT the enemas. :shock: :D :D

    I've never quite done that, but I have gone an entire month without any soda or anything like that...I drank water, water, and more water by the tons. I felt great afterwards. When I was in eighth grade I went two weeks where I ate nothing but an apple a day...pretty stupid on my part...my way of trying to lose weight. Luckily I realized what I was doing to myself before I got seriously ill. As for what you are talking about...I have no idea!

    I find when I get to the point where I'm getting hungry but my appetite isn't there... I need to somewhat detox. So I go about 24 hrs with water only. Then I resume with a couple small meals. By the next day my appetite is back and I'm back to pigging out.

    Yes, well sort of. My religion has a fast between sunrise and sunset for 3 weeks in March. It's not easy, but I do usually feel better when it's over.

    Wow Ali, if you dont mind my asking, what religion is that.

    I have fasted before for a day or 2, if I was seriously trying to decide something, Id fast and meditate, but I havent done that in a whle - which is probably why my life is a shambles at the moment :LOL:

    Baha'i. And because nobody has ever heard of it, here's a link :) The point of the fast is to remind you of the spiritual aspect of life. To be honest I haven't really practiced any religion in a few years, but this one is the closest that I have found to my own personal beliefs.
