As for me, the best time to start fasting is to get a lot of projects and start working on them! can get so concentrated that I simply forget to eat, sometimes even for the whole day!

And I get exactly the opposite. As more I work at my computer, as more hungry I become! Sometimes I end up having a lot of snack around me, while I work. Fasting isn't for me, I guess :D

Intermittent fasting: 16hours fasting with only water. 8 hours free eating. It works for me. From 96KG last year September. And 88KG Early this year. Now 82KG. I know it is not a lot of lost since I eat a lot on that 8 hours free eating but it certainly works on me.

The best way is to follow ekadashi as told in our scriptures like the vedas. Coincidentally today (March 17 2019)happens to be one. Ekadashi though followed by many Hindus religiously, has lot of scientific benefits as mentioned in this article and can be followed by anyone who wants to maintain a good health. And is followed from many centuries by devout Vaishnavas. And the good reason to fast on ekadashi (literally means 11th day of the 15 days cycle of a hindu lunar calendar with 2 pakshas a month ie. Shukla paksha the waning period & Krishna paksha waxing period of the moon. Which means there are 2 ekadashis every month ) is the environment on this day does not allow the stomach to perform at its best.

In India fasting is known as religious ritual since ages.there are hundreds of Hindu festivals where we fast ,almost all types of fasts mentioned in your post are practiced. Those who are unaware of these processes would definitely be benefited.Nice information.

Along with other biologic information I've been reading, it makes sense to me to try this detox program. Maybe beginning with the water diet until I feel prepared (and if needed) to go further.
It's not a novelty, this kind of practice in order to "purify" the body, sense for religious purposes it has been done for ages. Now we know there's a lot of 'popular wisdom' based on experience and now, proved scientifically. Just like Vinod Kamath said on his comment.
Thank you Bright Side for such (and so many) good insights.

In India that too in south India, followers of madhwacharya will do fasting for 24hrs from sun rise to next day sun rise and it is called as EKADESHI, IT means 11th day from the full moon and from new moon day so every 15days this fasting is done and follow,it is nirjala ekadeshi.

But people wont listen nor practice Indian customs they need a foreigner to tell this and they appreciate their discovery and may be they try to fast.
Hell with those people,it is believed even cancer will never attack people who does fasting that too 9n ekadeshi day as on this day sunrays falls directly on earth which is harmful,others it pass thru moon and harmful Ray's will be filtered.

I've been practicing 24 hrs fasting that is from sunset to sunset since I was a teen in observance of one of God"s Holy Days that we in our church practice to fast once every year following Christ example, although it's a spiritual fast it also has some benifit to us physically. I for one feel as I come to break the fast at sunset the next day it seems I even become stronger and think that I could bear another day of fasting if I want to. For me it's a beautiful feeling not just spiritually but also physically.

I think it better to stick to doctors recommendations at that point. Professionals know better about such specific conditions

I’ve done 24-48 hour fasting every few months for 8 years and now look incredible at 43. I look younger and I’m thinner and healthier than I was at age 33 or 23. I use the cleanse for life drink from Isagenix that naturally supports your body’s fasting process. My video on Isagenix cleanse went viral on YouTube. You can look me up. Laura St. John and Isagenix cleanse on youtube — to see for yourself how to do it. If you want to order it let me know. I’d be happy to help. This article is fantastic.
