    Have any of you tried this? Science has recently uncovered that fasting is actually quite good for you. If you have it in you to fast for 4ish days it triggers mechanisms in the body that rebuild and repair damaged parts of your immune system, which is obviously extremely good for you.

    Prolonged fasting 're-boots' immune system

    I also found out that a lot of what you'll hear about "starvation mode" is bogus. After 2-3 days your body goes into "muscle sparing mode" and gets all of its nutrients from fat. I was in decentish shape before I started, around 220 at 5'11 with a good amount of muscle. I decided to go pretty hardcore, and in 3 weeks I have dropped to 185 and retained my muscle. I haven't been in this good of shape in almost a decade. I am seriously astonished by how quickly the results came. It sucks, SUCKS to go 4-5 days without eating, but it was totally worth it.

    generally ok for a young healthy male----but people have died on such diets-------it is ketogenic------energizing but destructive to all kinds of tissue----even heart muscle

    Restrictive fad diets are bad for your health.

    Got a credible link to show what I'm doing will plague me with kidney stones? I've read a lot of stuff from legitimate sources that say it's just fine to do what I've been doing, especially while I'm young.

    How about just getting off your fat ass and exercising?

    I do that too, and I've never really been fat. I've been less athletic at times.

    This sounds like an insanely bad idea.

    Portion control, avoiding processed foods, and increasing physical activity will most likely get you where you want to go without placing your health at risk.
