"Once when the Buddha was touring in the region of Kasi together with a large Sangha of monks he addressed them saying: 'I, monks, do not eat a meal in the evening. Not eating a meal in the evening I, monks, am aware of good health and of being without illness and of buoyancy and strength and living in comfort. Come, do you too, monks, not eat a meal in the evening. Not eating a meal in the evening you too, monks, will be aware of good health and..... and living in comfort."
So..once you fast for 2 days, what do you do next? Eat normally, binge, fast again? Sounds like you had positive results although would not recomend without medical advice and plenty of research.
interesting, so what are you eating now?
do you get cranky?
Best to fast for a couple of days every three to six months.
Overnight fasting — how long you go without eating from your last meal (or midnight snack) of one day and your first of the next — can have a big, and positive, impact on your health. Long periods overnight without food reduce your risk of cancer and diabetes.
That's the conclusion of University of California, San Diego School of Medicine researchers who looked at the impact the timing of eating and fasting had on breast cancer risk. Previous research has shown that diabetes is a risk factor for several types of cancers and that women with type 2 diabetes have a 23% higher risk of developing breast cancer and a 38% higher risk of dying from breast cancer than their peers. This was an effort to understand that relationship better.
