im looking for more research into the area of decreasing inflammation. what i was hearing/reading was that there is a study going on with positive results about the bodies ability to flush out weak/damaged immune cells during the fasting process after 72 hours and then actually start to replenish and 'build a whole new one'. i think the study is going on at USC, i dont have the link for what i was reading off the bat.

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

A water fast is great, but you would likely have better results if you incorporated one or two juices into your daily routine for an extended period of time

ya im going to eventually add in a juice, but i actually eat the big anti-inflammatory foods on that list every day. the whole idea of the fast though was the trashing and regeneration of bad/faulty immune cells after a 72 hour period.

There is a substantial difference between juicing and eating. With juicing, you can consume 5-10x as much in a single glass or two compared to what you would eat in a day.

true, and im not saying i wont juice, but if only juice worked for me and stopped the inflammation or muffled it, thats only a mask. i would return to the same state if i stopped. im not saying what whole immune reset thing works with fasting, but that seems like it would tgt the cause rather than masking it.

A lengthy water fast, and even a juice fast is basically a 'reboot'. It quickly detoxes you. It's not a bad idea at all.

Mike, that's a herculean feat going on juice for that long. I'm not sure I could do it. It's easier for me just to go without anything because it doesn't stimulate my taste buds. So how'd you feel as you began to transition off and back to solid food? It seems you would physically feel great. When I come off my water fasts I feel real good physically after I ease out of it.

this is what im talking about: Fasting triggers stem cell regeneration of damaged, old immune system -- ScienceDaily

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



Quoting 
In the first evidence of a natural intervention triggering stem cell-based regeneration of an organ or system, a study shows that cycles of prolonged fasting not only protect against immune system damage -- a major side effect of chemotherapy -- but also induce immune system regeneration, shifting stem cells from a dormant state to a state of self-renewal.

I have spent countless hours reading about proper nutrition. In the end we can only judge how we feel, what works for some may not work for others. Having said that, I think the only true test to tell how you feel is after 1 month of trying the diet. Why 1 month ? Knock out any placebo.

I wound up on a Ketogenic diet, averaging 15g carb day, but no more than 50g carb. I kicked out caffeine completely with this. Why Keto ? Because I believe this keeps your blood sugar the lowest compared to other diets. When your blood sugar goes for a roller coaster ride, I only think of it as causing unnecessary stress to your cells, body, etc. I can't prove it, but I think keeping your hormones, cells, etc in a smooth ride will increase longevity. Who knows though, I could just as easily get hit by a bus in the meantime. Day to day the diet works great, I don't yawn and can be productive from wake to sleep 16 hours. Getting through my days with no caffeine means a lot to me.

I agree. Except for the getting hit by a bus part.

Some may think it's a hoax, but even if he is being fed at times when the cameras aren't rolling he still sits like that for months in the same place. He sweats profusely without drinking water or shows any sign of releasing excrement. He's still alive and meditating today.

I've watched many documentaries, but have never have seen anything as conclusive that defies modern scientific reasoning. For someone to be able to sit outside in the cold, rain, sunshine, and night without really moving for months says a lot about what we as humans are really capable of doing. It sure as hell minimizes one's living expenses!
