NBC Nightly News on Fasting

My dad called me up this week after watching NBC Nightly News cover this segment on fasting. It was broadcast all across America and when coupled with the recent NY Times article, shows that fasting is starting to catch main stream attention. 

In their coverage, they missed out on explaining many of the key benefits of fasting (healing your GI Tract, autophagy, etc.), and unlike the person interviewed, I wouldn't go back to eating junk on non-fasting days - mostly because junk food makes you weak - and I want you to be strong from the inside out. 

And I still think it's funny that people consider eating 500 calories a day "fasting". That said,  I definitely wouldn't want to negate the value of a calorie restricted diet since it's a great starting place for most people.

Happy Fasting!
