Carl Sagan once said that “Extraordinary Claims require Extraordinary Evidence”.
That’s probably true even for ordinary claims, such as not eating food will lead to weight loss.
It may be that by tracking my food intake, keeping my daily caloric consumption down around to about 1,500 a day and limiting when I eat through intermittent fasting are contributing to my burning 60 weight loss.
Or, it could be a magical tapeworm that has infested my trunk.
Whatever the reason, intermittent fasting is not some spiritual malarkey that will lead to great things…although it might help you to lose a few pounds or 60.
Check with your doctor before you start following such a plan.
In a universe where mammals are not much more than ugly meat bags of mostly water, what we use to fuel our furnace comes not only from consumed molecules but from our own bodies through fasting.
Because, when there’s nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire.
