Our Bodies are Built for Intermittent Fasting

Today, we’re going to talk about fasting.

It sounds intimidating to say the least. Fasting.

Fasting always made me think of dour monks sitting in a cave somewhere, sustaining themselves on meditation and achieving enlightenment. Hardly a pleasant experience, and certainly not something relevant to modern living.

Yet, fasting has made the biggest change in my life and improvement in my health, and I’ve actually found it to be perfectly suited for our modern and fast-paced lifestyles.
