    I think this is a very 'balanced' response. Note the liberal use of the word 'some'.

    There is nothing 'balanced' about your response. You said~

    Fasting is a hardwired primitive survival ability that enabled early man to get past a famine. And that's the bottom line. Those that can't fast are either doing it wrong (not doing the correct prep work) or have medical issues that would have eliminated their early ancestors. It's that simple.

    IMO~ anything over a 24hr.(one meal a day) fast would be for the purpose of clearing the system of mal-nutritious (aka immune reactive) foods. For me, clearing my body (healing eczema) of the effect of wheat/gluten took 10 days of fasting.

    I didn't have a specific set goal in mind...I've just read fasts can do good things...someone mentioned that organs could be beneficially effected after 5 days....so..I'm just winging it to see what comes of it.

    I did my first 24 hour fast yesterday, became more like a 29 hour fast, I do leangains type if'ing went and worked out at lunch and got called into a meeting when I got back. By the time the meeting was over, it was 3:00 PM and I did not get a chance to eat and thought what the heck, let's turn this into a 24 hour fast..... I felt fine, not dizzy, not hungry. I probably could have gone longer till this morning without problems. I am type II and have a blood meter. Interesting about your sugars, the longer I fast the more my sugars go up, with out food, the body starts releasing sugars into the system to keep things running AKA converting your fat back into usable sugars. That is why diabetics test first thing in the morning in a fasted state. Man, if my sugars were at 50, I would be in a ball on the floor whimpering and my wife would be running around getting some juice for me to drink to get my sugars back to normal.....

    I'm probably early stage type 2 not that progressed. My blood sugar on my last two blood tests were 126-137 and my doctor said she considered that diabetic. I've been eating very few carbohydrates for awhile but my fasting blood sugars were still 110 or so at times....I'm curious to see what they do when I start eating again.

    You should check out all the blogs on cold thermogenesis. Cold actually gets rid of fat cells instead of just reducing the fat in them if my understanding is correct. This isn't the only benefit but it can be very good for anyone dealing with excess. My thoughts are...maybe because it was in one of those posts...not sure is that when a making a new fat cell and than filling it takes more work than just filling a fat cell so when you get rid of some of them it'll be harder to gain back the weight...not sure if that's true or not.

    Leptin Reset/Cold Thermogenesis are really interesting.
