Fasting & a Cold

This week I have had a bit of a cold. Ever since I started fasting I have noticed that my colds are few and far between and I recover so much quicker than before. Before fasting, I would get a cold and it would knock me out for almost a week. I would be in bed and miserable. I would sleep for days, so exhausted.

Last year, after I started fasting I noticed that I would be able to function through my cold, something that I saw other people doing but never could seem to do myself. I also noticed that I would recover much faster, after just a couple of days. I have now been practicing intermittent fasting for over a year and so I can see that this is now a trend rather than a fluke. I have successfully got through three colds without a day off work or a day wasted in bed.

I really believe that fasting is the reason for this. I think that my immune system is stronger because my body has the time to focus its energies on healing rather than having to spend all it's energy on digesting mass quantities of food.

This is a significant change for me and among many other positive changes I have noticed because of fasting!


  1. That's wonderful! I think I'm seeing the same thing, and UTIs have disappeared. :)
