Fasting for 24 Hours Can Raise HDL (Good) Cholesterol Almost 6%.
Periodic fasting serves a metabolic purpose that frequent eating can disrupt.
Fasting also gives your body and its organs a break from producing enzymes to properly
break down the foods that you eat.
Researchers did a study with two groups; both were fed a diet high in fat. One group could graze all day; the other group's feedings were limited to an eight hour window.
Although both groups consumed the same amount of calories, the 24 hour grazers
experienced adverse effects like weight gain, high cholesterol, high blood sugar and liver damage. Fasting and de-toxing can help reset your bodies metabolism, helping put your body in balance.
