Fast Food Nation opens with discussion of Carl N. Karcher and the McDonalds brothers, examining their roles as pioneers of the fast-food industry in southern California.
Q: I read somewhere that it is good to fast for about 16 hours, and then eat. I've tried this with success, and I want to do it again. Do you think (if I am breast feeding) this will be bad for my baby at all?
I don't recommend fasting while breastfeeding, beloved! Think nutrition, not cleansing!
Q: I will be starting a fast for Ramadan in August. What suggestions do you have for cleansing during fasting? I do not eat meat except, fish 1-2 times a week. I've been having problems with gas after eating, even fruits or veggies. I usually have 2-3 bowel movements per day. I am a 56 year old male with good health, except for my problems with gas, varicose veins and leg cramps especially during fasting.
Cleanses for Ramadan should be LIQUID-based i.e. Liquid Full Body Detox, or perhaps drinking herbal teas i.e. Detox Tea. To combat or counter your gas (flatulence), start consuming Activated Charcoal (Carbon) 1 teaspoon in a glass of water daily (anytime of the day you feel like it). Work on your colon too. We suggest you try our 10-Day Supreme Colon Cleanse to help this problem of gas.
Q: I just left the doctor to get treated for a sinus infection and the nurse said my blood pressure was high. 132/100 then 130/98. I'm 35 yr old and this scares me. Over the years I have experienced erectile dysfunction and this has really damaged my confidence. I think this is related to this high blood pressure. I want to fast and stop eating all fried foods. I want to eat one meal a day or every other day. I'm just really scared and I need to do something fast.
YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT TO DO. THE ILLUSION OF FEAR IS PARALYZING YOU. DO THE THING YOU FEAR AND THE FEAR WILL GO AWAY? REMEMBER, GOD AND FEAR CANNOT CO-EXIST. HAVE YOU READ OUR â€HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE (HYPERTENSION)â€ ARTICLE YET? IF NOT, PLEASE DO SO AND GET YOU SOME KNOWLEDGE. FEAR RESULTS FROM IGNORANCE, GOOD BROTHER. AND THEREFORE, KNOWLEDGE CAUSES FEAR TO DISSIPATE WHEN THE KNOWLEDGE IS ACTED UPON. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO DO. GET THE KNOWLEDGE, HAVE FAITH, AND THEN ACT!
Q: I was actually interested in using the FULL BODY DETOX, I know that it comes with a nutritional guide but I wanted to know if it would work if I did not follow a vegan diet. I do not consume a lot of fast food which I am willing to easily give up but I wanted to know how it could work on a moderate none vegetarian diet.
The RAW FOODS diet is 50% of the FULL BODY DETOX! It won't work without following the diet!
Q: Roughly how fast will activated charcoal rid your blood of any drug?
It depends on how often you take the charcoal. You can take it 2 times daily, for 5 days. However, the substance works right away!
Q: I have a fast beating heart, I am 40 years, male living in India.
I would recommend that you perform our Full Body Detox first and foremost. After the 3-week regimen, take 3 capsules daily of our Cardio-Vascular Formula and Circul-Aid formula and you will notice a big difference.
Q: Is it safe and effective to do a Master Cleanse & Fast for 10 days. If not, What would be a more effective way to detox and lose weight in a comparable time frame?
You can absolutely do the master cleanse for 10 days. You should keep exercise to a minimum during the fast. Stop if illness occurs or you feel exhausted of course.
Although weight-loss occurs during fasting it is not a long term solution to weight loss. Most cleanses achieve the 1 lb a day weight loss depending on water weight lost. Juice fasting is another route to go. You should consider a dietary program such as a low fat high raw vegan diet for sustainable fat loss.
Hope this answers your question,

Q: Question: I am finishing up the Master Cleanse fast and was wondering as I reenter my vegetarian life should I do this with your FULL BODY DETOX? Or is this "too much" detoxing, the Master Cleanse and the FULL BODY DETOX?
You can do the Master Cleanse with the FULL BODY DETOX (as long as you eat raw foods as our herbs are very potent). The Master Cleanse is a beverage and as such you can perform it while detoxing!
Q: Good Morning, I heard about you on the Power XM radio Al Sharpton show. I'm 32yrs old I weigh 285lbs and my goal is to loose 125lbs (being realistic). My symptoms and habits are; Bowel movement once a week, headaches, lower backaches, acne, dry skin, eczema, achey joints, asthma and tired all the time! Because of my work schedule and being a single parent I do fast food 2 times a day almost everyday. My oldest daughter is 102lbs 8yrs old - bowel movements maybe twice a week and the youngest 5 yr old has headaches. HELP !!!!!!
I strongly suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX, followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN, followed by the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. Work on your diet! Eat more raw foods! Start your daughter off with the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . Spend some time reading through our articles, Sir! Educate yourself!
Q: I am getting ready to go in the field for 3 days with the Military, and there will not be a variety of food to choose from. I started the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN on 08-Jul-08. I know that I can still drink the master cleanse in the morning and drinking the tea. My only problem is the food. Will it be okay to eat some of the food and start right back to eating the right food on Monday?
IT WILL HAVE TO BE ALL RIGHT. DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO TO STAY ON THE CLEANSE. JUST GET BACK TO THE FOOD REGIMEN AS SOON AS YOU CAN (RETURNING FROM THE FIELD).
Q: Do you know anything about male boobs and how to get rid of them? I work out all the time but there still here. Is there anything I can take or do to get rid of them fast!
OH, I JUST E-MAILED YOUR MOTHER. THEY COULD BE HEREDITARY. START TAKING MALE HORMONAL FORMULA (3 CAPSULES 4 TIMES A DAY). IF NOT HEREDITARY, COULD BE A HORMONAL IMBALANCE SITUATION. PERFORM THE TOTAL MALE CLEANSE 2-3 TIMES A YEAR AS WELL.
Q: How can I make the transition from cooked food, to raw food? Do you have any raw recipes for children? How can I get kids to eat raw?
Children do as you do, so let the child see you eating raw food as well. Fruits are the best raw foods to eat, as they are naturally sweet. Purchase "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual", for the numerous raw food resources to assist you in this transition.
Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual
Q: Do you believe that one should eat 3 meals a day or 6 small meals a day? Sometimes I don't feel like eating 3 meals. Back in the day people would fast longer than 15 days and were healthy.
I BELIEVE PEOPLE SHOULD EAT ACCORDING TO THEIR SPECIFIC LIFE STYLES ... THE LESS THE BETTER. FOOD IS KILLING US TODAY!
Q: I read the food chart for the FULL BODY DETOX. Is it ok to eat the cream of wheat while detoxing? I'm confused because on the food chart it mentioned alot of different foods, but it tell you the best thing to do is a all raw food diet such as salads and fruit, smoothies... I also plan to do the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN right after the FULL BODY DETOX and that requires a all raw food diet as well. So that means 2 months of strictly raw foods right? :( Its tough but I am determined too get rid of this hsv1 & hsv 2
I suggest you read the article â€WHAT IS RAW FOODSâ€ as it will help you to understand what to eat and what not to eat on the FULL BODY DETOX. Yes, all raw foods for 2 months (to the best of your ability, Beloved). YOU CAN DO IT, BELOVED! Did you read our "GENITAL HERPES" article?
Q: I was put on blood pressure meds. 3 wks ago but too much potassium was taken out of my system. Then they gave me potassium, which upset my intestines. I have IBS at times, but the kind where everything goes through too fast. I have to try to CALM things down. Could you suggest anything that might help?
Please read our article "IBS: Irritable Bowel Syndrome."
Purchase the Full Body Detox Companion ($20) and perform some of the colon/intestinal techniques outlined in there.
Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!
Q: I have been healthy until the last year, when a abdominal hernia developed. I have done water fast for 2 weeks to heal this without affect. Do you recommend an herbal treatment for this condition?
I RECOMMEND THE FULL BODY DETOX AS WELL AS ACUPRESSURE OR ACUPUNCTURE TO HELP THIS CONDITION. ALWAYS DETOXIFY YOUR BODY.
Q: Iâ€™m wondering about your 20 day raw food diet, are you saying no cooked veggies at all. (I have a form of PARKINSON; I'm interested in trying your recommended raw food diet for 20 days) Please answer this question as soon as possible, thanks.
No cooked veggies at all!
Q: How often should one eat cook food? I'm a vegan, I do not consume any meat, seafood, milk what so ever. I eat water cresses like everyday so as cook food. Like white rice with black bean sauce, spinach, and pasta at time's I'll eat some Chinese fried rice, veggie roll, steamed vegetables, any advice?
You can eat cooked food as much as you like. However, try to incorporate as many nutrient-dense raw foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, raw nuts and seeds, into your diet to make sure you are receiving an adequate amount of nutrients.
