Jon Barron’s Fasting Protocol

Jon Barron, the founder of the Baseline of Health Foundation, has long advocated intermittent fasting for health and weight loss. His recommended protocol includes fasting one day a week on juice plus a superfood such as chlorella, spirulina, stabilized rice bran, or something equivalent. He also suggests a three-day juice and superfood fast once a month, plus a five-day juice/superfood fast twice a year as part of a biannual liver detox.
