|Each group observed periods of partial abstinence from food, or regulated periods of under-eating. For some, this came about as a natural result of summer crops being in short supply before the new crops were harvested. For others, certain rituals began or ended with days of fasting. Still others taught the value of periodic under-eating by taboos or other means.|

My goal isn't detox so much as improving digestion. I wonder about fast-5 sometimes too - then there isn't really a reduction in calories, but your gut still gets a break. But then I worry about my blood sugar and adrenals.
