Intermittent Fasting

Science suggests that periods of intermittent fasting can actually be good for us. From an evolutionary perspective, our Paleolithic ancestors likely went through periods of fasting when food was scarce—meaning that our bodies are equipped to handle a lack of food and may even benefit from it. However, your success depends, among other things, upon what and when you eat during off-periods.
