There is nothing healthy about putting your body into starvation mode through the deprivation of food and nutrition. Her body needs fuel.
Your body won't go into starvation mode in 3 days, let alone a week. It takes a lot longer than that time actually. Your body will feed off of its fat and vitamin reserves until they are depleted.

Negative. It depends on how long one is doing it and how and their current state of being. Fasting can be very beneficial despite the negative connotation from people who aren't educated on it. People in many cultures fast regularly w/benefits.
this.

I fast before I do my low carb low fat, high protein diet. I water fast for three days to get rid of my cravings for sweet and salty foods. Works for me. Everyone is different.

Can you still work out while fasting, or is that too much?

I fast for religious reasons. It makes it easier that way to me, because when I fast for personal reasons, I almost always fail. I agree with the poster F8 who said you can fast other things as well. One thing I like to tell myself is that it's only temporary. And the benefits are great!

I will incorporate green smoothies tmrw then eat solid fruit on the third day. If anyone has had some experience with this please lend some advice Thumbs Up.

Fasting is a very good practice to start. I'd recommend looking into the extensive research that has been done explaining the health benefits of fasting.

I've been fasting since a kid (spiritual reasons) and it's something I try to incorporate into my diet. 

The biggest thing that I've learn is to drink a lot of water. I had to learn the hard way that your body responds to dehydration similar to how it responds to a hangover = no bueno. Stay hydrated (check the color of your urine to ensure hydration) and keep a water bottle with you handy, especially if you are fasting in the warmer months. 

What is the reason for your fast? 

I've done different types of fasting:  no drink/food, juicing detox fasting, etc. 

Have you tried eating dates? When we (Muslims) fast, we usually will end our fast by eating dates. Studies show that dates contain and replenish the same minerals, vitamins, and sugars that our body loses during fasting.
