Baha’is Fast, from sunrise to sunset, for most of the month of March each year. Approximately 12 hours a day. It’s purpose is mostly spiritual. I remember when I was younger, I would hear concern about fasting for that much time each day. Fast forward to 2020 and now to lose weight people are fasting for 16 hours a day. The closer we look the more we find that fasting is actually good for us. Dr Janet, the guest on this week’s Books That Make you will talk about the dieting aspect of fasting, and there are a number of them. The 16-8, the Warrior, the 5-2, Alternate Day Fasting, the Eat-Stop—Eat plan. Host Desiree Duffy will dig in and ask the questions we all want to know. Like: Is this something you should try? Will it work? What method is best for me? How can you do it safely?
