So how do you guys feel about pasteurized juice fasts, or all-water fasts where essentially you drink a gallon of distilled water in a day, exercise cardio to sweat and metabolize fat, and apparently clean out your liver and other body parts?
I already know fasting would result in metabolizing some muscle in order to sustain oneself.

I havent realy looked in it but the symptons as you "detox" seem to be what you would expect from not eating, as your blood sugar falls etc. . There might be something in it but I'd be realy suprised if there was.

Go ask your doctor.

I suspect an MD will reject this as unproven alternative medicine.
An alternative medicine practitioner might tell you that to really get rid of toxins you should add a colonic.

drink distilled water? you sure about that?
if its the same as "destilliertes wasser" in german then you'll die if you drink just enough of it.

You're thinking of the right one. Pure H2O.
Coke used to make it from tap water and sell it over here for about a couple of months, they added salts so as not to mess people up too badly. Then they fucked up some how and left dangerous chemicals in the water and had recall all their stock. They ended up closing down the operation.

From Eric Harr - Triathlon Champion:
Fasting will thoroughly cleanse years of toxins stored in the body... Do a two day fast over a weekend. Drink plenty of water. You can accelerate detoxification by taking hot baths, getting sunlight, and napping. Deep tissue massage can really unlock deeply stored toxins.
Other things I've seen revolve around drinking only pasteurized juices (since your stomach bacteria levels get reduced when you don't eat and can't handle unpasteurized juice well) and drinking distilled water in order to pick up stuff in your body (both good and bad; it'll absorb nutrients if you don't replace them) to bring it to get filtered by the kidneys.

The thing is, just because he's a triathlon athlete it doesnt mean he knows about toxin removal.
I'd like to hear a good scientic discription of whats ment to be going on with a detox, a discription of the toxins removed and an explanation for why they arent removed on a day to day basis.

I would say bad... I think the word is Hypotremia (sp?) basically when you drink to much water and all the salts and electrolytes in your body get flushed out. I heard if it gets real severe you could die but the worse I've seen is some one pass out.
Now if your drinking jucies that won't happen but still...

Scientific research (not personal promotions and beliefs) shows that fasting has few health benefits. The rapid weight loss seen with fasting is due to water loss, which can lead to fatigue and dizziness. Fasting doesn't cleanse our body; in fact, the opposite is true. Fasting causes the production of ketones, which can put a burden on the kidneys. Prolonged fasting can lead to muscle wasting and depletion of essential minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, sodium and potassium.
The bottom line: If you have any health problems, check with your physician before starting any type of fast
Guess that answers my question, possibly.
