is all still in the 'theory' stage...JS

I never thought of it as a life extension technique, but for at least the
past 35 yrs, I have had an intuition that occasional fasting is good for the
health.  The old timers suggested it too.  I mean once or twice a year going
an entire day with no food, only water.  And go light rations once in a
while, such as a couple days with about half the normal fare once a month or
so, just for the perspective it offers.  Or going a couple days with only
leafy stuff with no dressing for instance.  This practice causes one to
enjoy normal meals more, knowing the alternative.  I suggest nothing too
painful, just something that adjusts one's attitude a bit.  

In our normal modern life, every meal is a bountiful feast, a rich festive
banquet.  Ponder that early and often.
