This week, we're bringing back one of our most popular topics and a special rebroadcast episode discussing all the nuances of fasting from a beginner's perspective.

Fasting has been a common practice among many major religions for centuries, and in ancient Greece, Hippocrates believed it helped the body heal itself. Fasting has more recently emerged into the mainstream as a strategy to stimulate fat loss and to increase longevity.  There’s also research showing that certain types of fasting may help improve your cholesterol, blood pressure, glucose levels, insulin sensitivity, and other health issues. There are several versions of fasting protocols and many myths and misconceptions about fasting that we uncover in this intriguing episode.

In this episode of Wellness Warriors Radio, Beth & Michal discuss…

  • The various types of fasting approaches
  • Why people fast
  • Benefits of fasting
  • Drawbacks of fasting
  • Fasting myths and misconceptions
  • How to determine if fasting is right for you?
  • How to get started with fasting in your own life

This is a jam-packed episode to set the stage for a hot topic in health and wellness.
