Interesting idea on fasting... such as, only eat fruit to make your balding head grow its hair back. If only...

Sono molto perplessa malgrado concordi con alcune sue teorie. Per fortuna anche lui capì che digiuni di 40 giorni non sono proponibili, almeno a tutti. E’ morto a 56 anni per una scivolata in cui si è rotto il cranio, mi domando se soffrisse di osteoporosi o altro. La sua dieta è troppo stretta e quando non lo è non vedo il senso di unire alimenti acidificanti ad alimenti basici. Non sarebbe meglio una dieta vegana bilanciata e basta invece di alternare verdure e formaggi? Indubbiamente ognuno h ...more

Great idea, terribly outdated and scientifically weak. Credit to Mr. Ehret for making a case for Fasting with reason, not religion. But still, more research needs to be done to add to the case of Fastings implied benefit.

For science related pro-fasting literature I would highly recommend Dr. Mark Mosley...

...and his BBC program "Eat, Fast, and Live Longer"

Or just tap the source and read up on the studies the University of Birmingham is doing on fasting. La
Bueno, está interesante. Más de lo mismo básicamente, pero justamente por eso me parece que está muy bien. Pone en palabras varias cosas que uno sabe de una u otra manera. Me sorprendieron algunas cosas que fui experimentando por mi propia experiencia y que el tipo las expresa claramente. Por ejemplo lo del ayuno semanal, o lo de tener cuidado con que desayunar después, o lo de no desayunar diariamente por la mañana, el malestar inicial durante el ayuno, y alguna cosa más. Aporta.

Maybe not the best book on fasting but it gave me the understanding that fasting is a great miracle that has been given to us to heal our body and recover from illness. I have started weekly fasting after reading this book and I will definitely fast for longer periods in the future.
Difficult to read at the beginning as the author is on his soapbox, but it was SO worth the effort. A refreshing take on health, taking food, and bodily cleanliness and longevity. It's nice that he did the research using his own body and found his health after being so close to his deathbed. His hard writing style actually gave me strength to go through some of the methods afterward, and for that, I am thankful.

a very interesting insight into the western diet, detoxification, vitality and the connection to health and longevity.

Maybe the key to understanding the underlaying cause of disease in general.

Definetely good for cleansing and understanding the importance of clean cells and blood.

but the focus is not only on fasting, but mainly on a muscusless diet (fruits & veggies)
Safe and pain free fasting method coming into and coming out of a long fast.
