Amen Brewha.  Would you want to hire a lawyer if you knew they could not figure out their class rank based on a simple calculation?

These kinds of  posts are redundant and completely self serving.  You know you will be at the top of the class.  Why do you even need to ask?

No I have not, SunDevil.  I have only tried the liver cleansing fast twice, and both times it was a 72 hour fast on juices and vitamins/minerals.  I will check it out.  Sounds interesting, and I enjoy discussing health/fitness.

Landrover06, the article I posted is not about a water fast.  Did you read the article? It talks about juice diets.  I agree there are definitely some health benefits, but there are also lots of drawbacks.

About your 72 hour liver cleansing fast, what exactly did you drink?  Which vitamins and minerals did you use?  Why did you choose a liver cleansing fast?  Sorry for all the questions.  This is an interesting subject to me.

Yes, I read the article.  It seems to be targeted for dieters who are inclined to fast to lose weight quickly.  This is not what I'm talking about.

Now that we have completely hijacked this thread, LOL...

I did the liver cleanse diet with a friend who is a dietitian and personal trainer.  It was at least 3 maybe 4 years ago.  To be honest, I can't completely recall what we took.  I know that it was some prepackaged supplements that he had read about and it was from the local health food store, and we mixed it with fruit and vegetable juices.  I am fairly certain there was some chili powder/extract that was mixed in with the juice.  Aside from that, I canít really recall what we took.  I will ask my buddy when I see him, he is very passionate about this subject. I haven't done it since then, but I remember I lost about 7 pounds, and your body does shed a lot of excess/stored toxins.

It's typically not sustainable weight loss.  After this diet your metabolism can crashed and your body can go into starvation mode.  Often you will gain a lot of the weight right back once you get off of this.  You can even end up burning a lot of muscle tissue.  When you want to lose weight, itís important that you donít lose muscle mass.  You can simply become a more flabby and skinnier version of yourself.  An average individual who wants to maintain a steady diet and a healthy weight would be better off focusing their time and energy on a healthy diet and sensible eating habits and exercise.

Here is an interesting article I read on the subject;
"When subjected to a fast, the body burns up stored carbohydrates within 24 hours and then switches to using fat as its energy source. This may sound like a dream to a dieter, but in reality it's not good for the body. Why? Because red blood cells as well as the cells of the brain and central nervous system need carbohydrates to function. Some of these cells can use a byproduct of fat called ketones for energy but it's typically insufficient. The body starts breaking down muscle proteins to make glucose (a carbohydrate)

"As the fast progresses you will lose muscle mass, and if it continues for a long time, you could lose brain and heart tissue."  http://diets.aol.com/dietbasics/juice-fasting-master-cleanse-effects

Just read your second post on the fruit juice and vegetable juice fast, taken with supplements live ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and brewers yeast.  I have actually done this twice in my life.  You are right, your body feels awesome after you finish the fast.  You do learn to deal with the hunger after a few days.  However, I don't think this diet is a good way of losing weight once a month (we did it for a liver cleansing).

No offense landrover06, but this is some of the worst diet/health advice I have ever heard.  You are constantly shocking your system in and out of starvation mode.  3 square meals a day is what is healthy and appropriate for someone on an active schedule. Your body is a machine and needs fuel to operate.  This might work for you, partly because you are used to it, but this is not what is recommended for proper diet and nutrition.  Instead of skipping dinner or meals, you can just eat something sensible and with not too many calories.  I doubt anutritionist would agree with you.

Hey Mo,

Welcome to the boards!  Wasn't sure it was you until I read all the schools you listed on the threads.  Once again, congratulations on your acceptances!  ;D

Sharpchick, many of your replies are confrontational in tone and nature.  What is it you are looking for?  This person asked a simple question and you jump up and start getting defensive.   :-\

I experienced this as an undergrad.  It was very frustrating, and at times, impossible to understand.  I feel your pain.
