    Longer doesn't mean better.

    Further, there isn't 'proof' of this. No study has 'proven' anything WRT caloric intake and lifespan. One can certainly tie caloric intake to obesity, which could be tied to longevity (and quality of life), however these studies essentially define the 'norm' - what's where in a normal distribution.

    How many of them address body composition? Don't you think it possible one who eats a lot, but has low body fat might also live longer/healthier? Is that addressed inthese studies?

    Bottom line, there is no reason to regularly fast like this, and it is counter productive to anything related to improving your physique or improving strength or fitness.

    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    a 24 hour fast will not detoxify your body... there is no way. There is too many toxins in the body to rid in that amount of time.

    Why don't you just go have a foot bath or something? There are holistic ways, the foot bath being one of detoxifying the body which are much more effective and safe than a 24 hour fast. Besides.... what's the point of fasting for 24 hours? So on the 25th hour you start putting toxins back into your body?

    All whey protein contains toxins......phytotoxins... found in dairy products. It also encourages mucus growth which can begin to overwhelm the lymphatic system and cause problems. Detoxifying the body and keeping it realitively clean is a lot more difficult than you would think.

    Meat, by definition, contains more toxins.
    what definition of meat do you use? I have a feeling it will be different to mine and most peoples.

    Fruits may contain substance to help remove toxins from your body. However this does not change the fact that there are lots toxins in fruits.
    Fruit has evolved over the years so it can get through to spread the seeds. A way to do this is to get through you as quick as possible. But other times they have added toxins to prevent animals from grazing on them.
    See the huge long list of poison plants? eg nightshade
    How long is the list of toxic mamals?
    which list is longer?
    plants contain things like phytates, glucosinolates, thiocyannates, solanine, cycasin. spices in large dose besdie giving you a burning mouth can effec the nervous system.
    This list can go on.

    depends on the impurity. water more likely to have a effect on water soluble substance.
    But e.g. DDT its not going to have any effect on.
