Good Health Choices - - Your 32-page Guide -

Any­one who tries it should plan to be highly self-aware while fast­ing – if it’s not agree­ing with you, or if you need to eat a lit­tle some­thing to hold you over, that’s just fine. It takes our bod­ies time to ad­just, and some re­quire more than oth­ers. And bear in mind that hor­mones can make it harder for women to fol­low a fast­ing plan than for men. “Be cau­tious at first, and start slowly [with a shorter fast],” Ian Mar­ber rec­om­mends. If it isn’t mak­ing you feel bet­ter, try a shorter fast, or ac­cept the fact maybe fast­ing isn’t the diet for you.
