Topics I've Started

Is Anyone On This Board An Experienced Faster?

04 April 2013 - 11:05 PM

I have a couple of questions about fasting and I can't find any other forums on the internet with topics about fasting. So if you are experienced in fasting I hope you can answer my questions:

 

1) How often should a fast be performed? I've read some experienced fasters state that fasting becomes easier and more beneficial every time you do one, so how often should it be done? I was thinking of doing a 7 day fast every month, but is that too much?

 

2) Is water fasting the best type? Cause I've heard good things about juice fasting and dry fasting but I feel like I should choose one and stick to it.

 


Best Way To Supplement Efa's (Essential Fatty Acids)?

23 March 2013 - 06:26 PM

I do a pretty good job of getting my vitamins and I take some other good supplements, but I've never been able to get my head around EFA's, cause it seems to me like all cheap supplements you can get at the drug store just aren't worth it. I bought a jar of fermented cod liver oil from Australia for $70 but it didn't last long and didn't seem worth the price.

 

Is there a better, easier way to supplement EFA's? 


Water Fast Vs Intermittent Fasting?

20 March 2013 - 02:17 PM

I've been reading about fasting and I'm definitely going to do it, both for my skin and for overall health benefits. I'm wondering if it's better to do a straight water fast where I consume nothing but water for a few days, or if I should do intermittent fasting where I eat all my food within an 8 hour window and then fast for 16 hours.

 

And on the topic of intermittent fasting, how long should it be kept up? Thanks
