For some, the idea of fasting by eating only one or two meals a day still sounds like an extreme and overly restrictive dieting tactic. But many of us already feel like victims to our daily eating schedule: three meals a day, plus snacks. The truth is, this is an artificially constructed schedule that does not reflect our bodies' natural eating cycle. In fact, eating three meals every day can lead to inflammation, weight gain, fatigue, and chronic health problems. For millions of years, our bodies have actually functioned best with periodic times of fasting.
