Intermittent fasting is a healthy dietary technique that involves eating healthy for a fraction of the day, and going without any food for the rest. This eating pattern promotes weight-loss and heart health, and research studies have shown that can aid in the fight against diabetes. Also, intermittent fasting promotes positive neurotransmitter production that could combat the effects of anxiety and other mental disorders. It may seem like an extreme diet, but the human body is naturally prone to intermittent fasting as our ancestors did not always know when their next meal would be available.
- Recent research into intermittent fasting has shown its potential health benefits for the brain and heart.
- Humans as a species were created to fast due to the uncertainty of when their next meal would be available.
- Fasting promotes beneficial neurotransmitters that may aid in the reduction of anxiety and other mental disorders.
“Even in the absence of weight loss, fasting can help fend off diabetes and heart problems, studies suggest.”
