The two aspects I mentioned – psychological traits – arise from the reflection on the body's initial reactions to the physiological changes. What I mean in particular is, feelings of hunger only are experienced for the first few days before the body begins to adapt. Reflection on that change leads to a better awareness of one's resilience. Feelings of tiredness or limitedness also fade away, leading to a reflection that spurs empathy with those less fortunate or who are otherwise excluded from our high-speed, overeating economy and society.
Ultimately – fasting is physiological/metabolic meditation, similar to how commonly understood meditation is psychologically/emotionally beneficial.
I hope that helps! 🙂
- Why is it wrong to skip breakfast? I know people who skip breakfast and actually feel better after skipping breakfast.
- I can eat in the morning, but I’m having a hard time eating before going to work because no matter what time I wake up I feel like I’m always running late. I want to eat before I get to work because I want to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up to start my day off right. How do you do it?
- Is eating breakfast the first or last part of your morning routine?
- How do I start remembering things better and feel comfortable with it?
- What are some yummy add-ins that you like to put in your overnight oats?
- Is caffeine okay, or not recommended?
- What do you have for breakfast as a healthy option?
- I have to get two kids (2 and 3) ready every morning and don’t ever feel like I have time to cook eggs for breakfast. What are some very healthy going-out-the-door recipes that take minimal prep?
- Is it good to run before or after breakfast?
- Any small meals that are filling? I’m not very hungry in the morning and don’t know what to eat.
