Today I’m going to be answering the question, “Is fasting healthy?”
Fasting is great for your health; however, if it is done wrong, it can be dangerous and have long-term side effects. There are several ways you can fast. You can perform a full-day fast where you only eat dinner, only consume juices, or only drink water. You can do this kind of full-day fast for up to three days, but after that period of time, it can be really hard on your body.
There’s a new type of fasting called intermittent fasting where you only fast for a period of the day for about 4-8 hours. You can do this fast anywhere from 30-90 days. Intermittent fasting is really beneficial for allowing your body to rest, helping with leaky gut syndrome. In addition, intermittent fasting supports your hormones, benefits with weight loss, and heals your body through detoxification, if performed the right way.
