Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
Okay. Which part of it sounds like a really good idea? I can't possibly imagine? I don't know. I kind of need the energy and nutrients that FOOD provides.

Want to get rid of excess fat? Permanently? I suggest reducing your caloric intake and exercising. Creating a calorie deficit. Over a period of time. Not some quick fix that's SURE to backfire.

Getting rid of toxins? I'm pretty sure that's what the kidneys, liver and intestines do, amongst other things that our great body is made up of.

Eating a healthy diet is all that one needs to detox the body and lose excess fat. No gimmicks. No hardships.

Instead of spending time fasting - why not spend time changing your eating habits? Devising a plan that you can live with. Finding new and healthy food options. Now that to me would be time very well spent.
