HFG’s ver­dict on fast­ing

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURES -

In­ter­mit­tent fast­ing is an ex­cit­ing new area of re­search. It has the po­ten­tial to pos­i­tively af­fect your health — but it’s im­por­tant also to ac­knowl­edge that the long-term im­pli­ca­tions are still un­known. You may also need to con­sider if fast­ing and ex­ces­sive hunger have neg­a­tive con­se­quences on your mood, en­ergy lev­els and abil­ity to con­cen­trate. In­ter­mit­tent fast­ing is not a magic bul­let. What’s im­por­tant is that you find a way of eat­ing that works for you as an in­di­vid­ual — and if that’s fast­ing, so be it. But rest as­sured, a mul­ti­tude of health ben­e­fits are as­so­ci­ated with other eat­ing pat­terns, too.
