Different versions of fasting have become very popular in recent years, some more or less extreme than others. Metabolic Balance® is a world renowned personalized nutrition program that has pioneered a gentle 5 hour fast between meals. What are a few of the reasons we encourage a fasting period?
– ensures food from the last meal is properly digested
– blood sugar and insulin to return to normal levels before rising again at the next meal
– lower levels of insulin promotes fat burning, which helps with weight management and may help protect against chronic diseases*.
