Benefits of intermittent fasting?

Dr. Rhonda Patrick AI:

Intermittent fasting has several benefits. It's an eating pattern that allows your body to deplete glucose stores and switch to using fats and ketones, which can improve metabolic health. It's been shown to reduce resting heart rate, blood pressure, and have anti-inflammatory effects. It can also improve symptoms in overweight asthma patients and glucose regulation in women at risk for breast cancer. There's also evidence that it's beneficial for heart and brain health. However, its impact on athletic performance is still being studied.
