I'd have to liken fasting to static stretching prior to working out: It was done for thousands of years, millions of people thought it was good, but in the end, science has proved that it's actually harmful.

Unfortunately, the "it's been done that way for a long time, so it must be good" attitude still prevails, and science is ignored.

Anecdotal stories and denial are one thing, but science can't be argued.

Fasting can be very beneficial for your body to "clean house", A lot of people in western culture are very weary of fasting. But ancient cultures have been fasting for thousands of years.

The proof is in the pudding? So you had bloodwork done before and after did you, to confirm the psychological 'boost' you experienced?
Many people follow ancient forms of expression to feel good in themselves- suspension from hooks, branding, even tattooing. The reasons are varied, but it is all done to create the positivity of which you speak. None of it is good for you physicaly however, and neither is fasting. I offered a chance for some real scientific evidence in its defence, and all we got was more 'it made me feel good'. That is not proof of its safety or health enhancement. Time to stop the carousel.
