I am trying to lose weight and change my diet. Are "cleanses" or "fasts" useful?

Precisely! The long term solution is avoiding deep fried, processed foods that have preservatives, and salty foods. Keeping as close to nature as possible ,and avoiding GMO foods as well. Subclinical food allergies may be useful to test, as often it can manifest as bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and IBS-like symptoms.
