Data Science of a Post Covid-19 14-Day Fast With a Dislocated Elbow Disclaimer: Please consult your doctor about fasting. This article is not advice but an explanation of the data science around a 14-day fast. I did tell my general practitioner I was about to do a 14-day fast. Additionally, Dr. Jason Fung has a great book, The Complete Guide to Fasting, about fasting that spells out a safe 14-day protocol.
Back in the early 1990’s I attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and majored in Nutritional Science. I picked this degree because I was obsessed with being a professional athlete. I felt like studying Nutritional Science could give me an extra edge. I was first exposed to research about calorie restriction and aging.
I was also involved in self-experimentation in my Nutritional Biochemistry class. We centrifuged our own blood and calculated LDL, HDL, and total cholesterol levels.
