Fasting has been done for ages and most people use it as a quick weight loss strategy. After all, Beyonce did it. She said she lost 20 pounds by fasting for her role in Dreamgirls. But what about the rest of us mortals? Any healthy Benefits from fasting?

Here are the most common types of fasting:

  • Water fasting: Involves drinking only water Juice fasting: Entails only drinking fruit juice
  • Intermittent fasting: Intake is partially or completely restricted
  • Partial fasting: Certain foods or drinks are restricted from diet.

Health benefits of fasting :

Despite the long list of possible health benefits associated with fasting, it may not be right for everyone. If you suffer from diabetes or low blood sugar, fasting can lead to spikes and crashes in your blood sugar levels, which could be dangerous.

If you decide to try fasting, be sure to stay well-hydrated and fill your diet with nutrient-dense foods during your eating periods to maximize the potential health benefits.
