    Fasting And Starving Are Two Completly Different Things!

    I get so annoyed when an ignorant individual writes off fasting as some form of starvation. Doctors, the media, and society perpetuates this ignorance and in my opinion it is doing far more harm than good. There are several groups of people who could and most likely would benefit...

    There are many forms of fasting.

    Not just depriving oneself of food. A person can fast by depriving themselves of something they enjoy. A few years ago, I had surgery and they delayed it for several hrs. I ended up fasting (not eating) for 30 hrs. So sometimes fasting is not for religious reasons.

    Drink It In...

    For nutritional/body health reasons, but not religious... I've done the Master Cleanse a few times, and swear by the Sambu fasting kit. I should really make some plans to do this again in the near future. And it's funny how expensive it can be, to not eat. :P
