“Fasting is a term that describes a variety of approaches to limiting food intake throughout a 24-hr or longer frame”— Paul Ebeling
A popular approach is intermittent fasting, in which people limit the number of hrs they eat during the day.
There are a variety of approaches to intermittent fasting and 1 approach is not better than another.
Going without food for longer periods of time was probably normal for human ancestors who did not have access to a refrigerator or restaurants on every corner.
Intermittent fasting is more of a lifestyle than a diet, but in the end it is a way of eating that has a significant impact on your metabolism and our health.
- Fasting triggers the production of antioxidants and boosts age-related metabolites
- Eating a low-carbohydrate breakfast was found to increase weight loss, while eating dinner late at night raised the risk of glucose intolerance and diabetes
- Intermittent fasting supports weight management and reduces insulin resistance. It is not advisable to fast while eating a daily diet of processed foods
