Fasting is the hot topic in cutting edge health. It can disrupt chronic illnesses, reduce the effects of aging, and support weight loss.
As a species, humans used to manage eating as hunters. With food scarcity, we ate when food was available and fasted when it wasn’t. Those fasting periods had cells living off the fat. With greater food availability, this cycle of fasting and eating fell away. Now, we just eat.
Fasting balances the metabolism and helps people stay healthy. It pushes back the onset of chronic illnesses. Fasting leads to your body eating debris and dying cells so the healthy cells remain.
