    Detox = Total Bullshit. Your body is very good at detoxifying itself already as it is.

    But there are lots of positive benefits to fasting. I've done a 3 day water only fast and it was brutal. Sucked bawlz. There was no way I could get past 3 days.

    Intermittent fasting is much better and incredibly easy.

    Wouldn't people lose a lot of muscle mass and make metabolism less efficient by fasting? (only applies to non-tubs-of-lard)

    That's pretty much everyone's fear. No it actually does not affect your metabolism and you won't lose muscle mass as long as you are doing some sort of resistance training. (Intermittent fasting that is.)

    What are the scientifically-confirmed benefits of intermittent fasting? (link is fine)

    Does it need to be scientifically confirmed? Try it once- for a weekend, and see if you feel any better. I doubt anyone could loose any significant amount of muscle mass durring a 2 day fast.

    I mean, yeah kinda. Otherwise, what's the point? I can smoke some weed...that makes me feel better too.

    Did you need a scientific study to convince you weed was fun to smoke?[​IMG]

    As for fasting I know a bunch of people who swear by it but... for some reason it has always seemed somehow ass backwards.

    Yesterday I started The Master Cleanse. As part of my Mission Detox

    Started it last night too, going to do a few days until this weekend and all next week. My mission is too just feel cleaner and lose the three lbs I put on before vacation in April

    Been having too much mirth and merrymaking at work and life related events.

    Took a massive poop at lunchtime...FTW!

    Lots of scientifically confirmed benefits for calorie restriction.

    Here, let me google that for you.


    That website points out that people doing this tend to lose a lot of weight, including a lot of lean muscle tissue. Definitely not a positive in my book.

    Prolonged restriction without resistance training of some kind may lead to a loss of lean muscle tissue. If you're going to do intermittent fasting, it's best if you're on some kind of regular lifting program. If you are lifting and fasting, you won't see any muscle loss. There's research in that area as well. You'll probably even see increases in strength. I have. If you're really interested in the topic, check out Eat Stop Eat. Lots and lots of cited research in his book.
