by | May 26, 2020 | FAST FACTS

People who’ve never fasted typically experience very mild and brief periods of discomfort, ranging from gnawing hunger to headaches, irritation, and low energy. Dr. David Perlmutter, author of ‘Brain Maker’: “Fasting is baked into our evolution and our physiology and it can yield benefits to our brains and bodies, at a biochemical level, that we’re only just beginning to understand.”

Dr. Peter Osborne, author of ‘No Grain, No Pain’: “It’s of the cheapest and easiest health tools you can access. Fasting has been shown to be beneficial for a variety of different diseases and health problems including rheumatic diseases, chronic pain syndromes, hypertension, and metabolic syndrome, obesity, cancer, digestive disorders, and more.

Dr. Rhonda Patrick, PhD health researcher: “Most people who practice fasting report feeling energized and more alert at the end of their fast, which may represent a “resetting” of their body’s natural metabolic rhythms.”
