Intermittent Fasting

Will fasting slow down your metabolism?

If you have been starving your body of nutrients then yes it will slow down your metabolism. You want to make sure you have nutritional reserves and eat nutrient-dense foods (ketogenic diet). You do not want to fast for a long period of time (longer than 4-5 days), this can cause muscle loss. Start with intermittent fasting then gradually to 24 hours.
