to me, yes.. its good for ur health.. reason?? imagine, for 24 years (my age), we have eat & eat & eat everyday.. our stomach is a some sort of machine or system.. every machine should take a rest. we are going to use it for another 40 years.. imaaging, a machine keep operate for 60 years, without stop.. even when we sleep, or stomahch keep running to digest all the food rite?? so, fasting give our stomach to relax.. i fasting for 30 days, and thank God, i still alive.. of course, fasting has own period, like from morning to sunset.. then, we can eat & drink.. plus, mentally, it can slow don our lust. so,we wont do any bad things :) try it!

absolutely not. you body needs nutrients daily. if you deny your body those nutrients your going to end up doing more damage to your body than good. you can even open your body to diseases that you may not have had before because it lowers your immune system. don't fast. the best thing you can do is count calories, watch what you eat, and talk to your doctor so you can safely lose weight.
