Very true on the cautious part. Each of us has our own paths and our own ways and our own abilities. It’s not for everybody. Many different cultures have many similar ways. Thanks for your word of caution- it is that important to take heed and be wise before fasting too long. I say always ask your local pastor and get someone’s advice.

But the process informs one of ones health in new ways so its worth it for that alone to me. The main reason is because I've seen a few people get seriously sick by what they eat and getting better by changing it.... me included. Unfortunately this often happens later in life so people don't realize until the damage is done. The gut biota's role is only a newish area in science.

It depends on the goal I guess, for me a baseline goal is longevity.... but there is only so much diet can do in that regard anyway.
So I'd say fasting gets one closer to the healthy operation of their body by temporarily breaking the unhealthy eating. To me eating for energy as if the body is a machine is the wrong way to go about it. Often inflammation of the gut can develop when a person only eats one type of food, so variety is a good thing to keep in mind and I suppose regular fasting mixes it up in that regard as well.
One of the cons with fasting is that it can lead to benign eating. While on the other side it can help improve insulin sensitive. The one beef I have with feasting diets is the fact that it is a diet. Which mean it's temporary. If you are using a diet to lose weight you will have to stick with it to keep the weight off.
