If you are interested in fasting and are not sure how to go about implementing a regime that works best for you, Dr. Mercola lists a few options that you can choose from.
Some options include:
- Alternate-day fast: fast one day and eat the next
- Restrict eating to a 6-8 hour window by skipping breakfast or dinner
- Fasting one day a week for 24-36 hours
- Fasting twice a week by reducing calories to about 500 on the two “fast” days
Take a look and see if this might be something you’re interested in. Dr. Mercola lists some health benefits associated with fasting, but remember that it might not work for everyone.
