Nope. Yes, as you mentioned, you need salts/electrolytes
That's what I got; saline water in a bag. For four weeks. That happened several times.

That doesn't "detox" anything, it will just make you crave every food you see in every ad on TV.

After a week of zero food you'll feel great
Nope. If you ever meet me after not eating a week, you may want to run for the hills. I'll be in war-mode, "eating" on cigarette after the other.

Jeremy Falcon wrote:
Most people call this starving simply because
SCIENCE calls it that, once your body starts massacring itself to stay alive.

Jeremy Falcon wrote:
It's also possible to refuel after a fast
Fasting is something cultural we do each year, and that is NOT the same as "not eating".

Also, one should not be without food for four weeks without supervision from a hospital; they did that because something was "a bit" wrong.

What you are preaching only stimulates bad eating habits and eating disorders. It is healthier to be overweight than to starve your body from resources, and no, there's no such thing a "detox".

Detoxifying your body is the task of your kidneys and liver. Guess what? They need calories to function. Weird as that may sound to you, but that hardware requires energy. If you starve, so does that hardware and your immune system.

Just don't make the mistake of drinking too much water.
So, your body sends you a signal of hunger, and you tried to ignore that with water? Big Grin | :-D

Jeremy Falcon wrote:
I learned that the hard way
And you didn't think that maybe, just maybe, not eating is a retarded idea? Laugh | :laugh:

It is called "our daily bread"; because WE NEED IT DAILY.

It doesn't have to be fancy nor tasty. You don't have to like or enjoy it. And you do not have to agree with science; you have the freedom to be wrong on the subject. Just keep in mind, that encouraging people to not eat may kill a few of them. But still, you have the freedom to preach just that.

I'll be using my freedom to point out that such is a sickness that can be treated.
