This looks like a reasonably sensible approach if you wish to lose a lot of weight.

Be careul, however, not to allow a regimen to be imposed on you (not even by yourself!) which could override your body's biofeedback. If you \"don't hear a thing\" from your body you could follow the program, but please do not hesitate to adapt if your body tells you to. Your response(s) could be difficult to predict, particularly after a period of time.

It would also be wise to have a blood test during each longer fast, testing inter alia the urea, electrolytes, muscle enzymes like AST and CK and the liver enzyme ALT at the very least. Drastic changes in these could indicate the need to abort a fast.

You are welcome to use this forum with feedback and I'll endeavour to be on hand with advice. But a local doctor willing to examine you regularly will be a good idea.

I have re-thought my approach for this as it was to extream for me. I think one 30 day Fast per Year should work as a great regenerative fast. I will still continue intermittent short fasting eating once every second day (Supper only) as this is not difficult.

Jordan, I think this is a very wise decision. It's so much better to achieve your aim than to aim too high and miss the target.. Anyway, even I have never fasted more than a week or 10 days at a time, but at least 60 to 80 days per year, spread over time. I resever longer fasts not for maintenance but for cure so use them only to treat overt disease.
Congratulations on your achievements so far.

You hit the nail on the head! That was great advice. I'm no doctor but I've learned to stay in tune with my body--its like an innate thing I guess because I really don't think about it. I believe from fasting it woke up my subconcious or something to keep my brain in tune with my body cues. I don't have any health problems so maybe that's another reason why I can simply cruise along. But the biofeedback sounds interesting, I never heard of that, I'm going to google it.

Biofeedback happens all the time. You do get thirsty, hungry, sleepy, cold, warm, etc., don't you? Just hold your breath for a minute or two and you'll experience biofeedback.

Unfortunately many unscrupulous marketing guru's have also studied biofeedback, and invented ways of exploiting it. They add various chemicals to \"food\", sometimes imitating nutrients. Should you eat their \"product\" while your body actually needs the nutrient, it creates a false biofeedback, telling you this was the right thing to do. Soon, however, your body learns that it is still short of the (real) nutrient, and makes the mistake of \"telling\" you that it can be found in that piece of junk you have eaten.

This is called \"cravings\". Cravings can also be caused by a real need or by allergies: You tend to become addicted to foods you are allergic to. That is because your reaction to the food can also make you feel sick, and the reaction is temporarily reversed by re-esposure.

A real, natural craving is characterized by being
* Spontaneous (not induced by advertisement, sight or smell),
* for one, specific, natural food,
* relieved by having that food (not returning soon after).

Have a great biofeedback.
