Description

Are there benefits to fasting? Is it healthy or just another fad? 
My initial thoughts after completing a 6.5 day fast, expectations, predictions, struggles, and reasoning for doing it in the first place. I completed comprehensive blood testing before and after, as well as a DEXA scan before and after, and review the results.
I also touched on ketosis, cholesterol levels, IGF-1, and more.
