  1. Thanks – I think I remember Longo saying that the ideal is a 4 day water fast – but to compensate for the nutrition in the FMD – it needed to be 5 days to capture the same effects. So possibly, not losing anything?

    • Hey, thanks for the input.
      Ah interesting, didn’t know Longo had made that specific differentiation.
      Yeah, in that case quite possible one isn’t losing out on much.
      Would like to look at some clinical data to feel more confident.
      Ideally a paper that discusses blood test resuts at different fasting durations, if such a paper exists.
      Will try and dig up some next time I’m fasting. Rather than fall down the research hole right this moment, hehe.
      Also will look again at the papers Longo has published.
