To fast or not to fast?

I've read many things about the benefits of doing intermittent 3-7 days fasting, usually once or twice a year.

I've also done a 3 day fast once, before I went on a restrictive diet (for medical reasons). At that time, I saw the benefits of less sugar cravings and being more able to control what I eat.

I'm about to go on a Slow Carb Diet, which essentially restricts the amount of sugar and specific carbohydrates you eat. Will it be beneficial for me to do a 3-day fast before I start?

Bonus: If you've done a fast before, how did you go about it? How did you feel from it?

anonon wants your take on these quandrees too.
