The thing about intermittent fasting (popularized by a Chinese-Canadian nephrologist who discovered that it helped diabetic patients in danger of effing up their kidneys) is that it completely scraps the idea of “no pain, no gain.”
Water fasting for spiritual and physical renewal is nothing new; it has been done in many cultures for centuries. It is nothing short of incredibly weird, in my opinion, that, wherever the “SAD” (Standard American Diet) as currently practiced has replaced traditional diets in other parts of the world, people get fat and can’t get thin again. Nutrition, despite added this, that, and the other, is insufficient for proper development of the human body in utero, and children end up being born with poorly shaped jaws and crowded teeth.
Healthy eating, exercise, and fasting could save so many people so much ridicule and so many medical bills.
