This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of eating disorders, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Warning: The website and documentary contains calorie numbers and weight figures.

I recently watched Michael Mosley's Horizon documentary on fasting. I'm quite amazed how many health benefits it seems to have I'm actually considering giving it a go. Has anyone else tried it? If you don't know what it is here's the website:

and here's the documentary I watched:

Ask a doctor before trying any of these diets. From medical professionals and my professors at university, I've heard nothing positive about fasting. I've heard mixed reviews about occasional "cleansing" where you do a juice or raw cleanse, but never full-on fasting with these types of extreme calorie amounts on some days.

I'm actually going to see my doctor soon for another depo injection. I will ask him I have no serious health problems so I doubt it would kill me but I'd better be safe than sorry
