Read about the benefits of intermittent fasting. How your body can use most efficiently the fuel you put in it! Benefits seem to include lowered blood pressure, better use of insulin, lowered risk for heart attack, stroke, and diabetes, and of course weight loss. In animals, the benefits included better motor coordination and cognitive skills and growth of new brain cells and a decrease in the possibility of dementia. There’s the alternate-day modified fast where every other day you eat only one meal with maybe 30 percent of your normal daily calorie intake and there’s the 5:2 diet, in which you eat a normal diet five days of the week, and only 30 percent of what you would normally eat on the other two days.
