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.
