So fasting is “dangerous,” eh? Well the data from over 1400 people who fasted for between 4 and 21 days found: “The results from 1422 subjects showed for the first time that…. periodic fasting lasting from 4 to 21 days is safe and well tolerated. It led to enhancement of emotional and physical well-being and improvements in relevant cardiovascular and general risk factors, as well as subjective health complaints.” “Periodic fasting led to marked weight loss and improvements in several cardiovascular risk factors, such as overweight, abdominal circumference and blood pressure. It was accompanied by normalization of numerous blood parameters and led to pronounced improvement of the major health complaint in most participants The others did find that fasting is not free of side effects, the most common self-reported adverse effect of fasting in the 1400 person observational study was was sleep disturbance and fatigue, in 14% and 13% of subjects, respectively. This isn’t to say that everyone needs to or should fast, but this tool is FREE and easy-to-follow for those how have enough will-power to do so! #fasting #autophagy #keto #bloodglucose #diabtes #fatloss #bodybuilding #intermittentfasting #fitnessmotivation #weightloss #ketoaf #carnivore
