Why should my betta fast?

I've seen allot of people on this forum don't seem to feed their bettas one day out of the week. I'm new at keeping a betta fish (had mine for almost 3 weeks now) and didn't know about this till reading the forums. Right now I'm feeding Moe 3 Hikari pellets twice a day everyday. So why do you guys make your bettas fast for a day? :)

Fasting purges the betta's system of anything that could be harmful to him, and it acts as a preventative against possible bloating. In general, it is just a practice that keeps them healthier.
