Isn’t it dangerous not to eat?
No, it is not dangerous to fast. This is a myth. Unless you are diabetic, anaemic or have insufficient kidney function, you are safe to fast, especially the type of fasting that we do on this program. In fact, there are countless health benefits to abstaining from food periodically. When you rest the digestive system, you free up extra energy that gets redirected to cellular renewal and detoxification which is incredibly beneficial. More specifically, medical research has shown that fasting can help balance blood sugar levels, promotes an anti-inflammatory response, improve heart health, boosts overall brain function, prevent neurodegenerative disorders, boosts fat metabolism, increase growth hormone secretion and is associated with anti-ageing and longevity in general.
