I've been water fasting for approximately 20 hrs now, and while I feel fine I started to wonder--is it really that healthy?
I mean over and over we're told to never starve our bodies, that less than 900kcal a day is super bad, that no protein will result in severe muscle loss--so is it ok? On the other hand, I really wish I could cleanse my intestines, I feel like I would really benefit to get rid of all of that.
Liquid fasts sound more sound to me, but even then? I'm going to call off my fast and maybe do it in a few weeks once I've gathered more information. I've been reading around and all the medical opinions seem strongly against it, and only homeopathic sites are for water fasting. While I prefer naturopathy/homeopathy... I'm not sure how quick I want to be about discarding medical opinions? I'm at quite a crossroads..
