Why I Fast

I’m not a doctor, and you shouldn’t consider me an authority on any health issue, but this is what I’m reading now…

It’s a new book from Canadian nephrologist (kidney doctor) Jason Fung, M.D. Much of what is in this book is also available on his YouTube channel.

Everything in here makes total sense to me and is backed by extensive human studies (Dr. Fung eschews animal studies).

I’ve been doing a 42-hour water fast three times a week for the last few weeks based on Dr. Fung’s other book…

It’s surprisingly easy. I’ll let you know how it works.

  1. I’ve been doing this for 9-months and it’s opened up a whole new world for me. You may want to check out Dr. Gundry’s new book The Plant Paradox. You’ll definitely be impressed w/ his years of research. ~Renee Silverman (your Flickr admin) 😉
