Intermittent fasting is gaining in popularity and also gaining mainstream acceptance, as evidenced by this new article in The Washington Post:
I would not listen too closely to some of the dietitian “experts” in the article though. For example, intermittent fasting is ideal for reversing type 2 diabetes. You may just have to quickly reduce diabetes medications, as you may be too healthy for them in no time (discuss any changes with your doctor, obviously).
By the way, I just finished my first 48-hour fast. Just as an experiment. It was way easier than I would have thought. Hunger was not a problem at all – possibly because I’m on an LCHF diet so my body is used to burning fat anyway. I only drank water and bouillon, to get salt.
