Fasting, Intermittent Fasting, Binge Eating, and Extreme Rest
This is an extremely in-depth, VERY intriguing conversation between myself and Doug Graham (author of the 80-10-10 Diet) about the benefits of fasting, intermittent fasting, and extreme rest vs. the risks of increasing likelihood of disordered eating in the aftermath of these protocols. We largely disagreed up front, but when the source of our conflicting advice was placed in context we found we agreed virtually 100%. Listen, learn, and enjoy!
NOTE: Both Doug and I strongly recommend any type of fasting longer than 12 hours should never be attempted without medical supervision, especially for people who struggle with binge eating, anorexia, bulimia, and/or any other eating disorder.
