Great idea, terribly outdated and scientifically weak.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...

Controls hypertension and diabetes

One of the best and earliest books on food, dieting and fasting...
Great read, and outstanding information.
I have read this book more than Five times and learned something new every time I pick it up.
I would recommend this book to all, but mostly to people with knowledge of self.
If you have hypertension or diabetes read this book, if you want to increase muscle and decrease body fat, read this book.
The book is a seven star read, but amazon only has a rating

The most essential read I've ever come across personally. The formidable affect mucus and toxemias have on our body is perfectly illustrated by Ehret.

I found myself having "oh, that makes so much sense" moments throughout the entire read. The reading for me went by so quickly due to the divine subject matter. Ehret's words were being delivered straight to my soul. Never have I found so much spiritual comfort from a read.

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

WOW this book is very interesting and makes me think about fasting and eating more fruits. As I am a vegan I hope it will not be to difficult. I would recommend this book to everyone to try at least to fast once a month to begin. We as a society need to read books like this to educate ourselves. Just look around at the shape most people are in.

A great informative read on why there is so much dis-ease in the world. Definitely something to think about... going on a fast.

An interesting approach to health and disease, this book explains many times the fundamental idea that mucus is the main cause of all disease and just how what we consume affects the amount of mucus within our bodies.

A good read, the idea makes a lot of sense and is something practical that can be applied into everyday life. I recommend this book.

Profoundly simple and simply profound... this book is the holy grail of diet books. A literal healing system that teaches and reminds us on how to live in harmony with natural laws and method. It really doesn't get any better than this and with perseverance anyone can achieve perfect health.

This book was another book to read in my quest for optimum nutrition and what to eat and what to do. This book explained different types of castings and what they do to the body. Excellent book.

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.

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

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)

Short essay turned into a book

What could have been said in 500 words has been turned into a book. This whole book is really just an advertisement for another book. Sadly, the other book is an advertisement for this book.

Though what they're talking about is of great value, but altogether it could have been said in 20 pages.

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.

The information in the book is invaluable but I found it very repetitive and with a few typos. Not one to complain about typos usually but after getting the gist of it, the repetition get annoying.
