Another related point is to increase eating raw/uncooked food. I'm noticing how much less I eat as I decrease cooked food portions. It may be easier or better than outright fasting.

Of course, I am only referring to certain veggies or soaking things like peas/beans/lentils in water overnight (instead of cooking). Please don't eat raw meat or anything after you see my message!

The way you phrased it — “outright fasting” — makes it seem as if eating uncooked food is a form of fasting. To be clear: it isnt. Decreasing the amount of cooked food you eat provides NONE of the health benefits that fasting provides. Eating less cooked food is not a form of fasting, and your phrasing is hilariously laughable.
