Another "Truth About..."

The BBC has output several fairly good 'Truth About....' programs of late in the Horizon series.  The latest installment was to do with fasting (Eat, Fast and Live Longer): 
  • Michael Mosley has set himself a truly ambitious goal: he wants to live longer, stay younger and lose weight in the bargain. And he wants to make as few changes to his life as possible along the way. He discovers the powerful new science behind the ancient idea of fasting, and he thinks he's found a way of doing it that still allows him to enjoy his food. Michael tests out the science of fasting on himself - with life-changing results.
I only got around to watching it last night and although it contained a few inaccuracies (AFAIU), it is good to see mainstream challenges to the idea that we must belt feed food throughout the day less we should atrophy.

Pregressive acceptance of fasting in its many forms (ADF, IF etc....), will hopefully move perception away from 'obsessive'.  I for one, found fasting to be a natural progression after adopting a paleo diet.  I just began to never fancy breakfast....then I found out about fasting.
