But actually, fasting isn’t quite the same as starvation. Sure, you go a few hours without eating. But you don’t go whole days without eating.

Fasting, if done during navratri  for all nine days can detoxify body, provided that good amount of fruits, vegetables, milk products and unsweetened beverages are included. It can also improve cardiovascular function, blood composition, and blood pressure, say experts.

Benefits of Fasting : Here are few of the benefits of fasting.

Helps in Weight loss

Fasting can be a safe way to lose weight as many studies have shown that intermittent fasting – fasting that is controlled within a set number of hours–allows the body to burn through fat cells more effectively than just regular dieting.

Improves Insulin Sensitivity

Fasting has shown to have a positive effect on insulin sensitivity, allowing you to tolerate carbohydrates (sugar) better than if you didn’t fast. A study showed that after periods of fasting, insulin becomes more effective in telling cells to take up glucose from blood.

Speeding up the Metabolism

Intermittent fasts can regulate your digestion and promote healthy bowel function, thus improving your metabolic function.
