The Complete Guide to FASTING by Jason Fung, MD – Introduction

The by-line is “Heal Your Body Through Intermitten, Alternate-Day, and Extended Fasting”

Here I will share only a small sample from the book. You should get the book. You should get the book for sure if you do not know much about fasting.

If you do know something about fasting, the point of this book, I think is that we now need to put fasting in quotation marks. It probably no longer means whatever we used to think it meant. That by-line is a clue of course but, basically, given the beverages, and sometimes foods allowed on a “fast” we definitely have to re-think strict water fasts as the gold standard.

What I will share is some of the pages from his section on the history of fasting. I think that it is fascinating; you might learn something surprising.

The very most important message from research done over recent years is that you can access all of the benefits of fasting by simply extending the time between supper (or dinner if you prefer to call it that) and breakfast.

That is it. Stop right there. Not eating for 12 hours. And then more than 12 hours. That is it as your starting point. It will change your whole world (especially if you are sick and want to get well). And anyone can do that.

If you want to be healthy, this is how you do it. If you are healthy and want to stay that way, this is how you do it (part of how you do it, of course: you still have all the physical, chemical and mental stuff to do:-)

In the next Post I will share Doctor Fung’s words on “spiritual fasting”. It is amazing to come to understand the connection to The Mediterranean Diet. Mind boggling how revelation works.
