Fasting: Is it Good For You?

Fasting

Does your stomach flip when you think about fasting?

Do you get dizzy and start sweating (because your sugar just dropped while thinking about it), and then you’re craving every food that comes to mind.

Okay, so that’s a little exaggerated, but the thought of no food may get your heart racing a little.

These days we are so SPOILED!

We really are — especially here in the United States.

Anything you want, at any time of the day you can have it.

Heck, we have access to apps on our phones that enable us to have food delivered to us — without calling anyone or going anywhere.

It wasn’t always like this though.

Imagine being in your village, gathering fruits or sharpening your weapons to go on a hunt. You didn’t plant food, you scavenged or fought for it.

We have never had food so readily available to us.

What we now refer to as ‘fasting’ was actually just a normal way of life. Our bodies were built to sustain that lifestyle, so it really isn’t as difficult as we make it out to be.

Just because our bodies are able to handle it, does that mean that it’s a healthy option?

Read on to find out how healthy it actually is — or isn’t.
