Fasting Journal Testimonials
From Our Clients On Seven Continents!

FEW KNOW that Mahatma Gandhi first turned to fasting to lose weight. Likewise, the majority among our World's Largest Fasting Clientele--on seven continents, representing 220 countries--which Fasting Center International has been blessed to supervise over the past 35 years, were also first drawn to fasting for weight loss.

      Among the thousands visiting FCI's Virtual Office or Cyber Clinic here each month, many prospective clients have said, in one way or another: 'My primary goal is weight loss, but I want to lose weight and learn how to keep weight off. I've learned--the expensive way--that DIETS DON'T WORK!'

      After researching 26,000 popular U.S. 'diets' which have come and gone over the past 70 years, the Washington Post concluded that "DIETS have failed Americans 99.5% of the time," a message all yo-yo dieters also sadly conclude, and which Bob Schwartz, Ph.D., hammered home in two of his best-selling books: Diets Don't Work and his sequel, Diets Still Don't Work!

      So, FCI is continually asked: How can I lose weight fasting? Or, can I lose weight fast on your weight-loss programs? Or, do your clients fast to trim down? What percentage of your clients suffer from clinical obesity, morbid obesity? Can fasting resolve or cure obesity? Are your clients fasting for eating disorders--anorexia, binge-eating, bulimia, compulsive overeating (a.k.a. food addiction)?

      What is detoxification? How do I detox. or cleanse? How do I detoxify my system correctly? Is yours a cleansing and body detox. program? Are people fasting to detoxify and lose weight? Are they fasting for energy, for physical health problems, for mental health problems, for anxiety, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, for depression, fasting to end mental fogginess, fasting for greater clarity of consciousness? What about spirituality? Does fasting enhance spirituality? Will fasting give me a closer walk with God? What about enlightenment? Will fasting enlighten me? Can we see God? How did Jesus fast? How did the Buddha fast? How did Mohammed fast?

      Others have asked: What is fasting? Is fasting dangerous? What are the dangers of fasting? What about water-fasting? What about juice-fasting? Can you compare water-fasting and juice-fasting? I'd like to learn how to fast intelligently, to fast skillfully. What is scientific fasting? What is therapeutic fasting? What are the benefits of fasting, the rewards of fasting? How do I fast? How do I start fasting? How do I fast safely? How do I break a fast safely? Is fasting supervision necessary? Are you fasting experts? Do you give fasting information, fasting tips, fasting advice, fasting programs, fasting supervision?

      Since 1995, here on the World Wide Web, many have also asked: Can you share some of the fasting experiences of your clients. . .their fasting testimony. . .fasting testimonies? Could you create an online fasting journal for sharing some of your clients' fasting experiences?

      Because of the overwhelming requests from prospective clients, as well as from our Fasting Center International clients, worldwide, FCI has gladly created this copyrighted FASTING JOURNAL for your inspiration and education. However, due to space limitations, we've presented merely a representative, minute fraction from our 35-year archive of the very best fasting experiences, testimonies, and testimonials addressing common concerns (continually adding new ones).

      Thus, if interested, please click on whichever topics you wish for inspiration from noble, kindred sisters and brothers with fine minds and good hearts just like yours, all of whom preceded you in this marvelous, self-improvement technique which so many of our species' greatest thinkers have done, historically, including all of our greatest spiritual teachers, as well as all three Fathers of Western Medicine--Hippocrates, Galen and Paracelsus (who concluded, nearly 500 years ago, that: "Fasting is the greatest remedy--the physician within!").
