Fasting has a great reputation in the wellness industry, whether it be water or juicefasting. But is is a step too far for food compulsives?
Stupid Idea Of The Week
Q: What is worse for you than drinks laced with processed sugar, but has a better reputation than the Dalai Lama teaching Mother Theresa to meditatate?
A: Fruit juice.
This is not only Stupid Idea of The Week, it's the winner of this century's most believable health myth. I've fallen for it, just like you.
I explain why it is so bad for you, but why you should not necssarily ban it completely.
...we look at fasting - if you have a history of food compulsion, is it too ambitious an idea to try fasting?
...I tell you what the human lottery is, and give you a quick happiness hack that does not rely on empty affirmations.
...And one of my favourite comedians drops in to end the episode on a high.
