jermyspermy asked: Hey Jeff! What are your thoughts on a 36 hour fast once a week?

I don’t know anything about timelines for fasting in terms of health, but I do know that caloric deprivation and fasting have been proven to be very beneficial.  When the body senses it’s starving to death, it has a built-in survival mechanism to flood your system with antioxidants, to keep you alive.  I fully agree with Intermittent fasting, as I’ve written many times.  When I’m going good on my paleo routine, I only eat one meal a day, and I feel great.  We don’t need as much food as we’ve been programmed to think we need.  Here’s the most recent posting I had on IF, with links to past articles and information.

Caveman Q&A

 laurenjorso said: I know that fasting between dinner and breakfast is healthy and recommended, and even frequent, mini-fasts are healthy. But is it not detrimental to your metabolism to fast all day, every day until dinner? What is your reasoning behind this?

Me: I’m a big proponent of IF (Intermittent Fasting), and I’ve written about it many times.  You can find three of my posts about it HEREHere, and here.  Enjoy!
