Health conscious people are continually looking for ways to improve and optimize health. The most common ways are through diet, exercise and fasting. However there is a new type of fasting called Fasting Mimicking Diet or FMD. The new research on the FMD is changing the way we look at fasting and its benefits. FMD research is shifting what we initially believed about when autophagy begins as well as how often and long we need too fast to experience its healing benefits. Also, are ketogenic diets really as beneficial as we think and what you can do to increase longevity and quality of life.
