12-15 hour fasts between meals is great as it is what people have always done.This may look like cutting out lunch or snacking and maintaining a healthy exercise routine throughout the day. It’s what we should do – eat for 12 hours fast for 12 hours. You can lose weight which is obviously a benefit for some but there are sever problems. One can develop gallstone formation if you fast for 16 or more hours. People who choose to skip breakfast may experience a overall mortality and cardiovascular mortality increase. It takes a while for our body to switch into ketogenic mode and start breaking down necessary components. This is why by day five it allows our body to complete a full reset. The refeeding period after allows the body to build everything that has been broken down.
