Although fasting can be challenging and sometimes uncomfortable, the mental and physical benefits can:

  • Boost cognitive performance

  • Protect from obesity and associated chronic diseases

  • Reduce inflammation

  • Improve overall fitness

  • Support weight loss

  • Decrease the risk of metabolic diseases

  • Benefit cancer patients — A recent study with mice and cancer showed that fasting during chemotherapy jump-starts the immune system and exposes the cancer cells. Ridding the body of old, toxic cells and replacing with new, healthy ones may be just the answer. Traditionally, cancer patients have been told to increase nutrients and caloric intake while undergoing chemotherapy treatments but this approach might now be under review.

If you are interested in trying fasting, please consult your doctor.
