Are There Health Risks Associated With Intermittent Fasting?

Long-term fasting means that you typically don’t eat anything at all or eat very few calories for several days in a row.

Intermittent fasting means that you limit your calories on certain days of the week or during certain times each day. This effectively keeps your body from adding calories and forces it to use energy found in stored fat and other locations in your body to complete daily cellular and physical tasks.
