I believe fasting is an important aspect of a healthy lifestyle. There is an increasing amount of research showing the links to fasting and longevity, healthy ageing, healthy metabolic processes, weight management and of it contributing towards preventing various types of chronic diseases. I particularly encourage my clients to follow time restricted eating patterns two nights of the week, aiming for a 16-hour fasting period. This rests the liver and the pancreas and allows the body to reset insulin and glucose regulation. Everyone is unique so it’s important for individuals to find their own pattern of fasting, so that it works best for them and fits into their lifestyle.
