I would fast about once every 3 to 4 months, for anywhere from 3 to 7 days. It was wonderful! It kept my weight optimal, I felt energetic, and I was only slightly hungry on the second day of any fast, but no longer than that day. Once I regained my hunger, I always carefully broke my fast as directed, and felt great afterward.
I lost my copy of that original book many years back, and didn't feel comfortable to fast without some reference. But since the tide had turned in public opinion about fasting, and there weren't many sources of information available.
Thanks to amazon.com 's used book sales, I will get another copy, so that I can once again feel the benefits of fasting.
This book is the one that other authors reference as the authority on fasting, and anyone planning to fast should definitely read it.
Fasting is not for the faint hearted, or people who are NOT under their doctor's supervision - kinda difficult sometimes though because so many people in the medicall community view fasting as an archaic practice that is also dangerous. Sure it could be dangerous if you jump into it without making sure that you're able to do it, and if you ignore your body's warning signs should there be any.
This book has taken me beyond the fasting that I was capable of doing in the past - juice fasting, right through to water fasting. I know I will treasure this book and refer to it many, many times in the future.
Note: This edition contains 2 books on fasting, by the same author!!

I agree with the reader from Ann Arbor, MI. This is most certainly not the best book on fasting and may, in fact, be the worst that I have read. Many are superior. Read morePublished on October 20, 1999
