There are many long-claimed benefits of fasting:
clear skin and bright eyes
We humans are hardwired from hunter-gatherer times to be able to survive for days without food. This is fasting in its most primal form and perfectly natural: no food until the next meal came along.But in the modern world, food is all around us. For many, even the thought of not eating for a few days is simply impossible. Many of us have now become accustomed to unrestricted eating, whenever and wherever. Now we not only need food, we crave it.
People choose to fast for many reasons. Some do it for health benefits: to lose weight, to cleanse and detoxify. Others fast because of religious beliefs and traditions, often based around ancient eating habits. Many use fasting to achieve clarity of mind.
Fasting for Cleansing
Our bodies are constantly on the go. Finding a time to give your body a rest from overindulgence or unhealthy eating is more important than ever.
Throughout history, experience has shown a periodic abstinence from solid food to be a blessing for the entire organism, the best investment in improved health and a longer natural life span.
While the true benefits of cleansing or ‘detoxing’ will continue to be explored by doctors, scientists and naturopaths, it is safe to say that almost all animals naturally go through periods of abstinence from food (eg. hibernating). Our bodies do it naturally, recovering and repairing, when we sleep.
Fasting for Weight Loss
Weight loss is a natural by-product of fasting. If you have weight to lose, then this can be significant (Beyonce famously claimed she lost 20lb in two weeks).
But it is important to follow up your fasting diet with a healthy eating and exercise regime to maintain your new weight.
Many fasting diets, like the 5:2 or Intermittent Fasting, base themselves on restricting calorie intake to 500 calories per day.
Health benefits of fasting
The potential health benefits of short/intermittent periods of fasting have really come to the fore. Popular fasting diets and cleanses such as the 5:2, Lemon Detox and the Master Cleanse have introduced the concept to a much wider audience.
Fasting dangles the carrot of better health in front of those experiencing a diverse range of lifestyle related issues. Many people who fast will enthusiastically proclaim how rewarding it is.
But a crucial hurdle can still present itself: fasting is challenging, both physically and mentally. That’s why finding ways to make fasting easier is key. And that’s where Madal Bal can help.
