What better way than to talk about fasting than during this lent period… It is questionable if fasting and staying without food for a long period of time is healthy or unhealthy for your body.
So it seems…
Studies show that when one fasts for a certain period of time during the day, it is a healthy process that is very beneficial for weight loss. So fasting and keeping your body fed for only about 8 hours a day is a great benefit.
Mercola states: “Intermittent calorie restriction appears to provide the same health benefits as constant calorie restriction, which may be helpful for those who cannot successfully reduce their everyday calorie intake”
This is indeed true, I know I am one to have difficulty reducing my calories intake, but what if you had no choice, like lent, or simply fasting for the hell of it? You would indeed be more healthy.
