Fasting for the Health of It based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I gave this book 3 stars because it does contain information regarding the fasting experience that is from a variety of sources. There are short and medium length case histories of the affects of fasting on wide variety of the population. What I found kind of silly was the author's description of her own month long fasting experience. She kept a diary but seemed to not have had much insight into her own personal self. Instead she gives dry comments on who was feeling good that day and her developing crush on one of the guest who is quite religious. She also talks about her lapse from the recommendations of the clinic and Herbert Shelton in general. But, unfortunately she doesn't explore it in a way that would be of help to those people who fall of the band wagon. As a study recently pointed out in the diet industry people lose weight all the time but very few of them manage to keep that weight off.
