I've been doing different types of fasting. I found it beneficial during chemo. My goal now is to minimize risk of recurrence and to lose weight. I've been trying to find information on how long and how frequently I should fast. I found fasting might also help with improving cognitive function and lessening chronic pain. Thought a thread on fasting in general would be a good place to post links.
Fasting can be done no matter which diet people follow, but those on low carb diets will find it easier.
