Re: Awesome info Chris

Not every source makes that statement. Chris has already given you links and is far better at quoting sources than I am. However, I am always researching and currently reading about this right now.

You said you were concerned about suffering anemia during a fast. Here is an excerpt from a free online book by Doctor Shelton:

"Normal blood contains from 4,500,000 to 5,000,000 and as high as 6,000,000 in healthy young men, red cells per cu. mm. and 3,000 to 10,500, with a probable average of 5,000 to 7,000 white cells per cu. mm.

Dr. Eales' blood was examined June 20, 1907, the first day of his fast, by Dr. P. G. Hurford, House Physician to Washington University Hospital, St. Louis. It showed the following:

Leucocytes 5,300 per cubic millimeter.
Erethrocytes 4,900,000 per cubic millimeter.
Hemoglobin 90%.

A blood test was again made on July 3, the 14th day of his fast, by Dr. S. B. Strong, House Physician, Cook Gouty Hospital, which showed:

Leucocytes 7,000 per cu. mm.
Erethrocytes 5,528,000 per cu. mm.
Hemoglobin 90%.

It will be noted that the blood has materially improved on the fast.

A third examination of Dr. Eale's blood made by Dr. R. A. Jettis, of Centralia, Ill., on August 2, showed:

Leucocytes 7,328 per cu. mm.
Erethrocytes 5,870,000 per cu. mm.
Hemoglobin 90%.

A further improvement in the condition of his blood is here seen.

Laboratory investigators have reported an increase in the red cells of healthy fasters with a decrease in white cells. In anemia, fasting often results in an increase in the number of red blood corpuscles to more than twice their former number, with a concomitant decrease in the number of white blood cells. In a talk in Chicago a few years ago, Dr. Tilden said: "Cases of pernicious anemia taken off their food will double their blood count in one week." Dr. Weger reports a case of anemia in which a 12 days' fast resulted in an increase of the number of red cells from 1,500,000, to 3,000,000; hemoglobin increased fifty percent, and white cells were reduced from 37,000 to 14,000."

You can find the whole book here:

It will also give you a second professional and informed opinion about whether muscle is digested in preference to fat stores which are there for that purpose. You will find more on that page and others that specifically cover your questions.

If Mainstream doctors refuse to study people who fast correctly they can only ever produce guesses and lies in their textbooks. I don't suggest that anyone fasts for 30 days, but I am happy to offer my support and advice to those who choose to fast for themselves. Unfortunately as you make quite clear there is plenty of misinformation out there, and some of it manages to find it's way in here too. I am not here to hide my experiences or to sit by and watch others post anti fasting scare propaganda on here without commenting back. I am here to share my experiences and support others who genuinely want to experience fasting and want to learn more about it as I do.

Read the links given and let me know what you think.
