I did it earlier in my life. Yes, 3 days long. I understand you. It is not a "starvation" how the others could think. You can even reach to see your aura . Hope you understand what I mean.

amazing - -
You are talking about days, I probably cant go hungry even for a few hours.I am supposed to be keeping a fast on all Tuesdays.The day I do it, I invariably end up ating the whole days quota in one single meal time...so, I find fasting is useless n only aggravates your hunger n desire for food.

No it depends i guess on person to person. I find it easy to fast. One day is no problem at all. If you eat in a timely manner regularly then you can fast.

you are right, achyuta. One can do it if he want it to do it. In that moment we stop serving our body and serve ourselves. Because OUR SELF is not "OUR BODY". When I say "My Hand" I speak about something that I own, not by ME. I am NOT something that belong to me. My head, my mood, my interests, ALL are MINE, n.o.t. **ME** !!!

Thanks. I fast for couple of things: 1. it helps remove toxins from the body, 2. it helps control over the senses.

Have you tried it? Dont say it without trying :) Anyways the goal is actually to control the urge of eating and thereby control ones senses.

Every other day for about 6 months. I lost a little weight and I felt great. Fasting as a means of Calorie Restriction is beginning to be recognized as a important method of improving health and longevity. Here's an article from my blog on Calorie Restriction. http://phremind.blogspot.com/2006/09/doctors-devise-new-diet-that-can-help.html

fasting is a ridiculous way to try and reduce weight, and I doubt you'd find many doctors or nutritionists who would agree it was healthy

When I was in my 20's I could do that and not on purpose lol.(I'm 34 now). I would only eat when I was hungry, and sometimes I just wasn't hungry and wouldn't realize I hadn't eaten for anywhere from 3-5 days. Now, if I do that, I get light headed, dizzy, & nauseous.
