    Starvation: Quarantine and The Fasting Mimicking Diet

    Starvation: Quarantine and The Fasting Mimicking Diet

    Last time I talked about time-restricted eating and how fasting is NOT synonymous with starvation. Well, that was before the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns of our normal societal routines. 

    During this strange times, grocery shopping has become a challenge, and for some who are out of work, it's also an economic challenge. So some degree of starvation is not out of the question, even within the wealthiest nation in the world. 

    On the plus side, it gave me the nudge I needed to give Dr. Valter Longo's Fasting Mimicking Diet a try. 

    And still, all of that says nothing of "emotional starvation" in this time of social distancing. Perhaps that's a topic for another conversation. 

    Stay safe, my friends.
