One of the many benefits of the Weekday Fast program is that it allows your body to go into what we call “Repair and Replenish” mode. The magic happens when your body finishes digesting the food in your system and your insulin levels naturally drop. Your body enters a fasted state and your body focuses it’s attention and energy on maintenance instead of digesting food.
What is the number one thing that prevents your insulin level from dropping? SUGAR. Sugar in large quantities should literally be considered poison, and yet we consume it in ever-increasing quantities.
This article from The Guardian is word-for-word the best summary I’ve read of how this hoax was perpetrated on the world. I strongly suggest you read it.
