Gray Tasmania, Australia
Lost 26.5 pounds 
On the 27th of August 2001 I began a 30 day juice fast. I didnt actually plan to do 30 days, it seemed impossible to even think of. I just began and thought Id see where it went.

The fast was trouble free and relatively easy so I just kept going.  On day 27 of the fast my family decided to climb a local mountain, I thought it would be a challenge and to my joy I made it to the top and down, a task previously impossible, there was some pain but not as much as expected.  The knees were being healed as never before!

By the end of the fast I was feeling a new man and had lost 26.5 lbs, my pain was gone, I was feeling 10 years younger and really enjoying a healthier diet, so I decided to stay with it.

Protein & Fasting

Excerpt from


It was theorized that protein loss during fasting was harmful and that a fast should be supplemented with protein. Fasting with protein became known as the Opti-fast. Fasters took nothing but water and a protein drink. Sadly, several people died. Protein digestion during the fasting state created an overload of urea and the blood become acidic. In this condition, the organs become more damaged instead of healing.

To the body, fasting is a natural process. During water or juice fasting, the protein levels of the blood remain constant. Although protein is being utilized, a person fasting 40 days on water will not suffer a deficiency of either protein, vitamins, minerals or fatty acids. In the breakdown of dying and diseased cells, all essential substances are available while fasting for reuse within the body. These dead cells are utilized in a systematic manner. Some diseases may take 30 day of juice fasting because it has take that long for the body to cleanse deeply enough to bring about healing.

Protein & Fasting Points
Protein deficiency is non existent in North America. You never hear of anyone being diagnosed with protein deficiency.

Fruit and vegetable juices have water soluble highly absorbable proteins.

The body has a store of protein, and it uses it selectively. Dieing cells are the first to be used and healthy and vital tissues are the very last and will only be used as a last resort.  

Only during starvation is protein being stripped form healthy tissue to be used to survive. This may take be 30 to 80 days of water fasting on water to reach this point.

The systematic searching of cells to be metabolized is crucial in the healing of cancer.  A cancer cell is represents protein and calories. Some cancers are so persistent that you have to force the body to choose between healthy cells and cancer cells.  This requires a long fast on small portions of juice combined with days of water fasting. 

Freeform amino acids may be of value, as they do not interfere with the cleansing process. An athlete fasting to tune up the system may consider a fast supplemented with free-form amino acids.
