Why Andrew Isn’t Eating Food Next Month

Not A Representation Of Fasting

I don’t plan on eating next month.

Yeah…no food…for 25 to 28 days.

Am I crazy?

Why would I choose to waste away when I’m at the peak of my health, fitness, strength, and vitality?

In Episode 15 of the Raw Food Health Podcast I talk about fasting, what the benefits are, how normal it is in nature, and why I’m choosing to have a long one now.

    Having read “Fine Art and Science of Fasting”? :)

    • I read, “Fasting and Sunbathing,” which is the the old name for “The Fine Art And Science Of Fasting,”. I think the Natural Hygiene Society reprinted Shelton’s work with new titles.

    Hi Andrew!
    I did a 22 day fast with Doug in CR last January. I think it is a very special and wonderful thing to do. Let me know if you have any questions before / after you do it.

    • Hey Richard.

      I heard you rocked the fast last year.

      I’m curious to know how long it took you to get back up to your previous level of fitness/strength, and if you’ve seen any new gains in fitness or health since then.

    I did a 21 day and it was life changing. But I know many people who get sick and even die from it…

    • Marina, I think it’s somewhat of an exaggeration to go with “many”.

      Some people, certainly, do have problems fasting.

    • Marina says:

      Hey Marina!
      Unfortunately, some people die during the fast, but the truth is that those people would die even if they ate, but probably faster. It is said that people accuse fast for dying and almost invariably fail to accuse eating to dying.

  4. Will says:

    Andrew, respectfully I suggest you build up to this over a long period with shorter fasts; say three or four days for the first one. Then perhaps 10 days for the second one with a gap between them of a few months.

  5. Susan says:

    I did a 21 day fast a couple years ago and it was a horrible experience. The only positive change was the pain in my right thumb, I’m guessing the beginning of arthritis, is still gone. It seemed to take forever to regain my strength afterwards. I’m not opposed to fasting, as it makes sense to me, but wonder why some have positive experiences and others bad ones.

    I finally tried your Thanksgiving pie for breakfast this morning, delicious.

    Hi Andrew. Medical monitoring of long fasts is a good idea. There is a danger of getting a doctor who is rigid and dogmatic. The danger is that they might be so blinded by ideology that they ignore the data and your input. This has happened. If it doesn’t feel right to you, quit, even if it doesn’t reach your goal.

    Hi Andrew

    I did a 42 day coconut water cleanse in December 2009 and it was amazing! I didn’t use the purest product, either and still,had great results.

    I have also done just water for as long as 14 days

    Does a high intake of fruit effect women differently in comparison to the effect on men?

    • In what way, Tiffany?

      We have some different anatomical functions. Women tend to lose or lessen their cramps/heavy bleeding/headaches during menstruation on a low fat raw vegan diet.

      Is that the sort of difference you mean?

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page
    layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
