A Health Tip You Would Have Never Considered - But You Should

I've always been told to never, ever skip a meal - especially breakfast!  I've even believed that if I go more than 5 hours without eating, my body will go into starvation mode and conserve fat (check: false).  So what if I told you that NOT eating could actually be very healthy for you?

The idea is to fast.  There's lot's of ways to go about fasting, but the method I'm excited about and am in the middle of trying is the 5:2 fast - 5 days of regular eating, 2 days of fasting, where you consume 500-600 calories.

Obviously, you'll loose weight taking in less calories in a week (hip hip hooray!), but the real good stuff is that fasting is linked to longevity and overall health.

Here's a snippet from Michael Mosley's documentary Eat, Fast and Live Longer:
