Fasting Made Easy. Or Not

Eager to join yet another weight loss fad, we checked the InterWeb for help with intermittent fasting.  One article compared nine different fasting plans.  NINE.  Some 30,000 studies later… whether fasting works or which method is best… all depends.  Thanks.    There does seem to be some evidence that, besides possibly prompting weight loss, intermittent … Fasting Made Easy.
