RM asks Dale
Would you recommend periods of complete fasting (3-5 days)?
I do not recommend fasting without supervision.
Side Effects to watch for if fasting:These include headaches, dizziness, lightheadedness, fatigue, low blood pressure and abnormal heart rhythms. People who are fasting may experience an impaired ability to conduct certain tasks, such as operate machinery or drive a vehicle.
If you must fast I suggest you fast only one day the first time. Then if it goes well, gradually increase at intervals of two weeks. If you do well then increase your experiment as outlined below.
Two weeks – two days fast
Two weeks – three days fast
Two weeks – four days fast
And continue as you see fit.
