No question about it whatsover about the obesity factor. The principal way to address it in a way that you will not cause yourself damage is and will always be through balanced QUALITY nutrition and exercise.Obesity is NOT about weight, It is a HEALTH issue.
Given that the obesity epidemic in this country is not so much caused by over eating but by the garbage and nutritionally devoid processed junk food people are consuming, fasting can play a key role to help obese folks by detoxing the system to allow it to operate more efficiently but it is NOT the key factor in the actual weight loss itself. You don't solve the problem by taking one of the very well known junk chemicals that is partly responsible for the obesity epidemic and consume that for 65 days!!!It's like trying to put out a fire with gasoline!!!
