A quick look at the history of fasting, both for spiritual and for health reasons. Fasting is not starvation. Fasting is a purposeful health habit with some serious benefits. We are hardwired for fasting too! It’s a total part of our DNA!

Fasting is a time tested and ancient tradition.  It has been used not only for weight loss, but to improve concentration, extend life, prevent Alzheimers, prevent insulin resistance and even reverse the entire aging process.  There is much to talk about here so we begin a new subsection “Fasting”.

There is nothing new, except what has been forgotten – Marie Antoinette

So the forgotten question of weight loss is “When should we eat?” We don’t ignore the question of frequency anywhere else. Falling from a building 1000 feet off the ground once will likely kill us. But is this the same as falling from a 1-foot wall 1000 times? Absolutely not. Yet the total distance fallen is still 1000 feet.
