What is short-term fasting?
Fasting is about voluntarily renouncing from solid food or even luxury foods for a limited period of time. This means that you do not completely exclude certain foods as with other diets. Fasting is intended to stimulate and improve the metabolism, which is very beneficial to our health, as it helps to break down fat and counteract typical widespread diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Nowadays, there are many different forms of fasting, some of which have become popular in recent years. These include, for example, interval fasting with fixed fasting periods of several hours to individual days, drinking therapy such as the classic therapeutic fasting according to Buchinger or juice fasting, as well as alkaline fasting or F.X. Mayr fasting therapy.
