Fasting is the ancient secret of health and wellbeing. It has been practiced throughout all of human history, however, this powerful discipline has been virtually forgotten in recent times, that is, until now.
Many people are re-discovering this dietary intervention. It can carry huge benefits if it is done right, including weight loss, reversal of type 2 diabetes, increased energy levels and many other benefits. At its very core, fasting simply allows the body to burn off excess body fat. It is important to realise that this is normal and humans have evolved to fast without any detrimental health consequences. Fasting’s most obvious benefit is weight loss. However, there is a myriad of benefits beyond this, many of which were widely known in ancient times, and across countless religions. The fasting periods, often referred to as ‘cleanses’, ‘detoxifications’, or ‘purifications’, encourage one to abstain from eating food for a certain period of time for health reasons. People imagined that this period of abstinence from food would clear their bodies’ systems of toxins and rejuvenate them. It turns out, they were correct.
