I don't know if you remember me, I attended a workshop of yours ab out 12 years ago. I have long been a fan of your sprouting books including your hysterical kitchen garden cookbook. But that is not why I am writing you now. Today I am on the 22 day of fasting and I can't believe that I'm doing this. What is even more incredible is that I feel quite normal. Really, better than normal. And why I'm writing is mostly to say thank you. Your new fasting book is awesome. I've read Ehret and Airola and they're great. But yours is easily the best fasting book I've read. I always knew I needed to detoxify. But how--that was scary for me. Your book helped me like a guide holding my hand." -B.J. Williamson, New York, NY "I just want to thank you again for your books. You infuse such enthusiasm into your writing. I can feel the pages smiling at me. Your fasting book inspired me to begin my health renewal program which I can truly say is the best thing I've ever done for myself. At 48, I am more active, more alert, more flexible than my 30 year old sister-in-law. Even my memory has improved and more unbelievable, my eyesight is slightly better, too. My sister-in-law wants to know what I'm taking. "Nothing!" That's the point! It's what I'm not taking! I never even considered fasting until I landed upon your book. I stopped after achieving 50 days-a true marathon. But now I'm religious about one day a week. "Please put me on your mailing list for your workshops in my area and any new book announcements. Again, a heartfelt thank you for your dedication and all the support you've given (through your writing) me." -Meloni T. Jennings, Scottsdale, AZ Author's Comments Food is one of the most powerful addictions in life. At 900 billion dollars per year, we spend more on food than on our homes! It is our second greatest living expense surpassed only by the medical care we sometimes need to correct our dietary overindulgence. With all this food and over-consumption, is it such a wonder that the #1 best selling drugs in America are names like Tums, Pepto-Bismol, Alka-Seltzer, Rolaids, and Digel? Man can survive on only one third of his daily food intake. The other two thirds goes to benefit the health insurance and medical care industries. The human body, if not compromised by overconsumption, bad food, bad air, polluted water, stress and emotional trauma, has an incredible capacity for healing and longevity. Within it is an innate intelligence more powerful than any drugs or a surgeon's knife. Fasting gives your body a well deserved vacation and the potential to repair itself. It's easier than you think. Even just one fast day per week provides 50 rejuvenating days per year. Give your cells and yourselves the opportunity to cleanse, nourish, rejuvenate and heal. Fasting helps increase energy and improve mental alertness; Heal chronic ailments without drugs; lose weight without the hassle of diets; maintain stamina with absolutely no hunger. Fast at home or at work-it's perfect for a busy lifestyle and all the while enjoy dozens of quick and delicious juice recipes. The best of all medicines are rest and fasting. -Benjamin Franklin View an Excerpt from Juice Fasting and Detoxification You can live without dietary protein intake for extended periods, but not air or water. How necessary is protein? Your body uses it in its daily tasks of manufacturing tissues and cells. This is the building phase of metabolism known as anabolism. During a fast, the body's metabolism changes gears and increases the breaking down and cleaning out work--catabolism. Protein is not required for your body's cleansing phase, and as long as you are detoxifying, protein in the usual large quantities will not be needed. Think of building a house vs. cleaning a house. Protein is like wood--essential structural material, but not necessary when cleaning. Protein is in every plant and animal. Even carrot juice has protein. Of course, some foods have more protein than others. But it is a mistake to assume that protein-rich foods are your only so urces of protein. True, some of our liquitarian recipe recommendations such as adding a tablespoon of wheatgrass powder or spirulina to your juices or drinking almond milk are increasing your protein intake during your fast, but these are only intended to be used sparingly. Fasting is a cycle of cleansing, stabilizing and resting. Maintaining balance--alternating cleansing, resting and normal activity--is part of the art of fasting. These liquitarian recipes, with their extra protein, can help during times of activity and enable you to stay on your fast longer. The benefits of longer fasting are worth it. Water fasters cannot cannot maintain a normal lifestyle and cannot fast as long. But the fasting process is generally a time to avoid extra protein intake because it slows down detoxification. A recurring desire for protein, however, indicates that the body is ready to terminate the fast. The cycles of cleansing and stabilizing and cleansing again have turned enough times and your body is wanting to stop the cycle and build again. You can never predetermine the exact length of your fast. You must listen to your body and accommodate its needs. The great call of hunger has returned and protein intake should start to increase. But don't get obsessed about protein during your fast. Typically, you need it a little bit on the way into the fast and on the way out, but not much in-between. Listen to your body and not to your fears or those of your friends.
