I know a few people who have gone and short (3 or 4 day) and longer term (2 weeks or more) water fasts and say it has done wonders for ailments ranging allergies, back/joint pain, stress and boosts post-fast metabolism. My search google came back with mixed results. I looked on here and there is a thread on fasting in general but was more opinion vs. experience based.
Does anyone on here have FIRST HAND experience with water fasting? How many days did you fast? Did you work out during the fast? The consensus on google is that ketosis kicks in after 72 hours (for men). I am not looking to do it for rapid weight loss....I am interested in 'reseting' my physiological and metabolic processes. I am going into a stretch of days off and thinking about giving it a shot.
