Food is one of the most powerful addictions in life. At 900 billion dollars per year, Americans spend more on food than on their homes! It is their second greatest living expense surpassed only by the medical care they sometimes need to correct their dietary overindulgence. With all this food and overconsumption, is it such a wonder that the #1 best selling drugs in America are names like Tums, Pepto-Bismol, Alka-Seltzer, Rolaids, and Digel?
Man can survive on only one third of his daily food intake. The other two thirds goes to benefit the health insurance and medical care industries.
The human body, if not compromised by overconsumption, bad food, bad air, polluted water, stress and emotional trauma, has an incredible capacity for healing and longevity. Within it is an innate intelligence more powerful than any drugs or a surgeon's knife. Fasting gives your body a well deserved vacation and the potential to repair itself. It's easier than you think. Even just one fast day per week provides 50 rejuvenating days per year. Give your cells and yourselves the opportunity to cleanse, nourish, rejuvenate and heal.

The best of all medicines are rest and fasting. - Benjamin Franklin
About the Authour
Steve was pronounced "Sproutman" in a 1977 Vegetarian Times Magazine feature article that explored the why's and wherefores of his 100% sprout diet. While over 2 decades time, most diets change, Steve is still a believer in living foods and one of the most prominent spokespersons for sprouting.
Steve got interested in sprouts after a 20 year effort to correct chronic allergies and asthma with conventional medicine. He made dramatic changes in diet and within two months of eating a strict "living foods," vegetarian diet, his lifelong symptoms disappeared. He continued to practice a 100% raw foods diet (nothing cooked, packaged, canned, frozen or processed) for five years. During that time, he also experimented with other extreme diets such as fruitarianism (just fruit) and fasted for as long as 100 days.
Steve is the inventor of two home sprouters, the Flax Sprout Bag and the Kitchen Garden Salad Grower. He is the author of several health and diet titles including Juice Fasting and Detoxification, Wheatgrass Nature's Finest Medicine, Sprouts the Miracle Food, Sproutman's Kitchen Garden Cookbook, and the forthcoming Wetter is Better and Power Juices.
Fasting is the "Elixir of Life". This book is a classic on juice fasting. It shows you how to enjoy this delicious and wonderful elixir. I have guided more than a 1,000 people through juice fasting and from now on I will be recommending this book to all the people who are fasting at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center. - Gabriel Cousens M. D., Director, Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center. Author, Conscious Eating and Spiritual Nutrition and the Rainbow Diet.
"Fasting and detoxification are the missing links in American nutrition. They're the most important healing tools I use. Meyerowitz does a fantastic job in explaining these fundamental rejuvenating concepts for everyone to understand."- Elson Haas, M.D., author of The Detox Diet and Staying Healthy Shoppers Guide.
Steve lives and practices what he believes in. His sincerity and knowledge is evident as one peruses the pages of this very enlightening work. - Dr. John Heinerman, author of Heinerman's Encyclopedia of Healing Juices.
"Nature has carefully packaged its nutrients into the cells of fruits and vegetables. Fresh juices are the fastest route to those nutrients. Steve Meyerowitz provides a succinct guide to the art and health of using juices." - Donald W. Novey, M.D., author, Clinician's Rapid Access Guide to Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
"Dear Steve. I don't know if you remember me, I attended a workshop of yours about 12 years ago. I have long been a fan of your sprouting books including your hysterical kitchen garden cookbook. But that is not why I am writing you now. Today I am on the 22 day of fasting and I can't believe that I'm doing this. What is even more incredible is that I feel quite normal. Really, better than normal. And why I'm writing is mostly to say thank you. Your new fasting book is awesome. I've read Ehret and Airola and they're great. But yours is easily the best fasting book I've read. I always knew I needed to detoxify. But how?--that was scary for me. Your book helped me like a guide holding my hand." - B.J. Williamson, New York, NY.
"I just want to thank you again for your books. You infuse such enthusiasm into your writing. I can feel the pages smiling at me. Your fasting book inspired me to begin my health renewal program which I can truly say is the best thing I've ever done for myself. At 48, I am more active, more alert, more flexible than my 30 year old sister-in-law. Even my memory has improved and more unbelievable, my eyesight is slightly better, too. My sister-in-law wants to know what I'm taking. "Nothing!" That's the point! It's what I'm not taking! I never even considered fasting until I landed upon your book. I stopped after achieving 50 day--a true marathon. But now I'm religious about one day a week. Please put me on your mailing list for your workshops in my area and any new book announcements. Again, a heartfelt thank you for your dedication and all the support you've given (through your writing) me." - Meloni T. Jennings, Scottsdale, AZ.
