Doctors Still Aren’t Sure if the Benefits of Fasting Are the Same as a Healthy Diet

While research suggests there may be many health perks to intermittent fasting, the research is still preliminary and mostly inconclusive in people.

One thing experts do know for sure about health: Eating well every day plays a major role in preventing heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer, Sass says. “Focusing on consistently eating enough nutrient-rich whole foods, like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, snowballs into proven powerful benefits over time.”

Another important thing to keep in mind: Just as fasting gives your body a break from toxins, it also saps your body of vital nutrients, like vitamin D, calcium, and omega-3 fatty acids. “As you create nutrient deficits on fast days, it may be difficult to compensate on the days you do eat,” Katz says.

If I miss a meal I will over compensate on my next meal. Never really had a reason to fast other than get blood work done.

It all sounded good until you said toxins. What do you mean by that? It sounds like a woo term to me.

The whole on-purpose intermittent fasting thing is pretty much mostly just a “new thing” all of a sudden, so everyone’s hopping on the proverbial wagon….Fasting has been around forever, because, guess what?? its what happens when you sleep. If you’re sleeping for at least 6 hours, then you’re fasting, and the body counts on the hours of no intake in too many ways to put in a FB post in terms of metabolic activity, brain activity, what the organs are doing and not doing etc. The human body takes magnificent care of itself if we give it good fuel, quality rest and sleep and regular exercise, end of story.
