A cleanings way of de-toxing your body of unwanted stuff. Often misused by people who want to lose weight. Fasting isn't a good way to lose weight, It is however often used to cleans the body if used right. Allow me to explain. In some cutlers and even religions, Many people believe by not eating you are cleansing the soul of toxins. Fasting is only suppose to last 3-7 day's however many people go overboard with this thinking it will help them lose weight. At firsyes, but then the body begins to reganize the fast and will start storing fat in order to keep it from losing precision fuel. On other note, It causes your metabolism to drop down. Yes the way you eat can affect your metabolism and by not eating your metabolism will shut off. I've seen skinny girls who think they are fat and in order to lose weight they try and fast, but they often gain that weight back and it turns into fat. They keep on fasting and more fat added on. Until there body are messed up. Fasting is also a form of bulmia: (Many people think bulmia has to do with purging but this is not always the case. Many woman who are bulmia will fast for 1-2 weeks a month, Thinking it'll make them thin. They do lose weight but only muscle weight. (Muscle helps burn cal's and helps speed up your metabolism.) Fat does not, Fat just slows down the metabolism.

So ladies if you are going to fast, Think about this. Do you really want to ruin your body? Here's what fasting can do. (Only if its prolong and misused- Yes its often used to cleans the body of toxins but only if used right, By drinking juices or water for 24-72 hrs, then slowly ad food into your diet, This will keep your body from confonsion. If you are going to use it to cleans your body, only do this every 3-6 months to keep your body from storing fat. Also talk to your doctor about this, (I've done this and got my doctors ok.)Now the list of things it can do If misused. Head-acks Bloating/Stomach pains.Unwanted weight gain. Yo-yo diet (Going from weight to the next.)Dizziness and fainting Memories loss

And bad breath

And death-(Although this is rare, and only caused by those who really over do a fast.)

So ladies and gents is your lives/body really worth it?

If you want to lose weight fine, but please do it the right way.

What Is Fasting?
Fasting is when you consume no food or drinks, with the exception of water, for a set period of time. It’s important to drink plenty of water, not just because you’re not eating, but because it’s easier to draw blood from your veins when you’re well hydrated.
