Using fasting to lose weight

How to start, what to expect, how to reintroduce food to maintain maximum benefits

How to work with a physician for longer fasts (more than 3 days)
Annotation:
Throughout history, fasting has been thought to heal the body. The author first explains that just changing to a natural diet can often bring renewed health without fasting. He then explains how and why fasting works, and when it's indi- cated for a cure. He gives specific dietary and fasting programs for overcoming each of the major chronic diseases, including headaches, heart disease, obesity, and provides advice on the proper way to reintroduce foods so the benefits of the fast will be maintained.This is not another diet book but a systematic approach to therapeutic fasting for health and healing. Dr. Furhman has created a career out of helping people learn how to fast and to benefit from the effects of a healthy, life-enhancing diet. Common maladies such as obesity, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriasis, to name just a few, are all positively affected by short, controlled fasts. Dr. Furhman is clear that no fast should last longer than three days without a physician's supervision and gives sound nutritional advice for beginning and breaking a fast. FASTING & EATING FOR HEALTH recommends a low-protein, low-fat, high-fiber vegetarian diet before starting a fast and explains the importance of a nutritionally sound diet regardless of the protein/carb ratio. It may be obvious that such a diet would help lose weight, but Dr. Furhman explains that weight loss is the side benefit of fasting, and that the real goal should always be optimum health and well-being. Though fasting may seem an impossibility to some readers, FASTING & EATING FOR HEALTH offers not only the advice and instructions for a successful fast, but also the encouragement and positive reinforcement for such an undertaking.
