From the Author

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 overconsumption, 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

4.0 out of 5 stars The FAST Track to Healthy Living June 13 2001
Poisons sting twice: once on the way in and again on the way out.
Expect to experience the toxins leaving your body in the form of headaches, light-headedness and fever.
A one-day fast hardly interrupts your schedule, but it give's the body's organs a moment of peace in a hectic world to remove toxins and NOT be busy with the work of digestion. A one-day-per-week fast gives your body 50 days out of the year to cleanse and heal.
Meyerowitz believes that fasting is the fastest way to restore your health. He goes into detail on short fasting and what it takes to safely experience long fasts of more than two weeks. Give your cells and yourselves the opportunity to cleanse, nourish, rejuvenate and heal.
(1) Increase Energy and Improve Mental Alertness (2) Heal Chronic Ailments without Drugs (3) Lose Weight without the Hassle of Diets (4) Maintain Stamina without Hunger (5) Fast at Home or at Work --- Perfect for a Busy Lifestyle (6) Make Quick and Delicious Juice Recipes
How Long to Fast According to Meyerowitz, the duration of a fast depends on:
(1) Fasting Experience (2) Physical Strength and Condition (3) Nature of ailment if Any (4) Previous diet (5) Mental Attitude (6)Level of Toxicity (7) Schedule of Work and Activities (7)Environment and Weather (8) Age
Chemically speaking, a long fast is divided into three stages, which Meyerowitz describes in some detail. The first few days is primarily devoted to body reorientation, as your system starts to change the pH of your stomach. During the second phase, the liver starts to purge itself of its chemical and toxic load. The third phase involves deep tissue cleansing.
Drinking only water is what most people think of when fasting is mentioned.

2.0 out of 5 stars A big disappointment. Sept. 12 2006
I really wanted to like this book. I was so excited when I ordered it, thinking I was getting a step-by-step juice fasting manual with, most importantly (to me, anywaay) abundant juicing recipes. It was pretty much the opposite. Lots and lots of semi-interesting information about stuff I didn't need to know, and hardly ANY recipes and little instructions on how to do a fast. This book is currently collecting dust on my shelf.

Now, I get my fasting and detox advice from Dr. Elson Haas' books - Staying Health With Nutrition, The Detox Diet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of Great Info and Easy to Read Sept. 15 2000
By D. Read
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, of course, but I can't imagine why anyone would give this book a two star review and say that it does not contain enough information. This book is full of information. I have just finished reading this book, as well as the author's wheatgrass book (which I would also strongly recommend), and the amount of specific information that he packs into such a slim book is impressive. I can't think of a single question which was not answered for me somewhere in the book. Any concerns or questions you might have about this controversial subject are answered with real facts, not hype or new age mumbo jumbo. The author's writing style is also very easy to read. I have not tried a juice fast yet, but after reading this book I am getting ready to, and I know I'll be coming back to the book for consultation as I go.

This is an easy to read book on how to fast for your health: mind, body, and spirit. The author does not try to convience you that this is the ultimate in health but educates you on the benefits of fasting, why it should be practiced, and how to go about it.
The book touches on the different types of fasting, the duration of fasting, how to start, and importantly how to come off of a fast.
There are several different kinds of fasting but what suprised me was the benefits of fasting during short periods of time: 24 to 36 hours. I had several misconceptions of fasting: that it was a long period of complete deprevation, I was wrong. The book outlines the benefits of short term and long term fasting and the effects of detoxifying the body with fasting.
Other topics discussed is fasting for weightloss and the nutritional balance of certain juices during fasting.
If you are new to the fasting concept and practice this is a great book to start.

1.0 out of 5 stars BIZARRE book! July 19 2004
Ok, in the beginning of the book there's some picture of a idol looking guy with cartoon angles flying around him - each with a word on it - one saying "Heavenly Father" on top. FREAKY! Next, there's a quote from Jesus from "Essene Gospel Of Peace"? Waaay too cultish or off-shoot religion sounding to me (one of the chapters is titled Spiritual Fasting).
And the guy who wrote the book calls himself "Sproutman". I haven't found a shred of proof to back up any of his claims nor any studies or detailed explanations. Let me quote the book on page 18: "Basically, there are two lengths of fasts, short and long". Doesn't seem to be much detail to the book.
Next, the whole section about how colonics and enimas can be FUN. No... I'm not kidding! The whole section "Try it, You'll Like It!" isn't enough to convince me but, even better, there's even a section on "Exotic Enimas". Plus, there's a lot of research out there that says it's not good for you. Even Stanley Burroughs agrees in his book "The Master Cleanser" and says if you want to clean yourself out, drink water with ocean salt instead.
The only thing I saw redeeming in this weird book with angels all over it was a section in the back called "HOW TO BUY A JUICER" that's 9 pages long. Sorry to say... wouldn't recommend it.
