Voluntary abstinence of food and drink (intermittent fasting) has been practiced by many cultures around the world for millennia. Client and patient interest in intermittent fasting has increased as recent popular press publications have begun promoting a variety of fasting regimes for weight control, amelioration of diseases and disorders, healthier aging, and mental health. Do they work? Is fasting safe? Can it lead to disordered eating? Should they be part of our dietary recommendations to our clients? And, for what specific issues?
