If you're eating anything, it's not really a fast. Just a diet. In mouse studies, they benefit from a single 72 hour fast. Not sure what this translates to in humans but you will definitely be in ketosis after a few days, and after 5-6 days your body will begin recycling old cells. I've done 6 days 2x. It's not for everyone though. Low carb/sugar, high protein (not soy), vitamin/mineral rich, moderate fat intake is probably the best anti-cancer diet we have.

Oh, and some people have reported positive outcomes with high doses of vitamin C, intravenous.

Congrats on the 6 day fasts! How ere they? I've not done anything longer than 4 days. On he first 2 4 day fasts, hunger was less on the 3rd and 4th day. Last time, it was a bitch the whole time. I lift and I lost a little strength, maybe 5 or 10% with the 4.5 day fast, but it did not seem that severe. I don't monitor myself that closely. Did you loose much strength during the 6 day fasts?

Thanks. It wasn't that difficult to not eat, after a while I got used to it. However after 6 days I felt pretty weak and had to work so I stopped. I wanted to do 10 days but stopped early cause I figured i might pass out while driving. I did work out a few times during the fast which probably accelerated the process... was still doing ok but yea, noticeable weakness after 6 days.

Oh the other thing is muscle cramps from mineral depletion, so I did take a small sprinkle of calcium + magnesium, potassium and table salt in a glass of water maybe 2 times. Not flavored though, just minerals.
