Who watched "fat sick and nearly dead"?

I just watched it on Netflix and it was very interesting!!! I'm just genuinely curious- what do you all think of fasting for a few days, does it really help to detoxify or are you doing more harm than good? And won't you just end up gaining that weight back once you go back to your "regular" diet routine?
Other than that it was really eye opening how big of an issue obesity is and how others see themselves, very interesting!

    I watched the movie ages ago and I have to wonder what that guy is up to now... no way you could live on juice long term. I have no problem with fasting for a day or so here and there but I personally don't because I would be at risk of a fast-binge cycle which makes no sense for my goals.

    I recently watched a documentary on Netflix called food choices and he was on it. he's still fit but eats a normal plant based diet these days :)

    I watched 1 & 2 after seeing this post yesterday and it does look like there is something in it. A lot of people who were on loads of meds for various health conditions were able to completely get off their meds, their conditions had vastly improved one guy beat diabetes as well I thought that was pretty amazing.

    Unsure if I could actually juice for 60 days but I might give it a try some time

    I see nothing wrong with the occasional break from eating. As long as it does not lead to a disordered eating pattern...

    Don't know. We do have a liver that does that job nicely as long as we take care of it...

    The occasional break from eating is harmless...

    Yes you will if you eat too much. Eating responsibly is necessary regardless of how or what you choose to eat...

    It's not the diet itself, it's the fact that you lost weight.

    For the win...

    I've had the mean green juice and it is the most horrible thing I've ever ingested in my life. And I don't know how juice could possibly satisfy hunger. Though I do shakes for two meals and that does help my hunger, but those shakes are high in protein. Juice has neither protein nor fiber (as the fiber is eliminated when juicing) and protein and fiber are what make me feel less hungry.
