Intermittent fasting is a great way to detox your body and get in good shape, but only when you follow it in the right way. You need to refrain from going to extremes, no matter which diet or eating pattern you are following. Irrespective of what the internet tells you, it is important to listen to your body and act accordingly. Fasting for too long or too short periods of time will not only make intermittent fasting ineffective, but will also lead health consequences you absolutely want to avoid.
Intermittent fasting cannot be used as tool to compensate for poor lifestyle, says Luke Coutinho. What he’s trying to infer is that having dinner late at night cannot be compensated by beginning to fast right after that, and then fasting for a longer period of time.
As part of a live session on Facebook, lifestyle coach Luke further on how intermittent fasting, when done in the wrong way, can harm your immunity, skin, hair, kidneys and much more.
