Typical Western diets consist of simple carbohydrates, such as pizza or sandwiches. These food items provide the glucose your body uses as fuel. Spiking glucose increases insulin levels, which the body uses to process blood sugars.

  • Fasting for 16 hours evens these spikes out and recalibrates the body.
  • A longer fast leads to lower blood pressure.
  • Time-restricted eating is associated with better cardiovascular health because the body starts to burn fat, and as the body releases more fat, the level of insulin drops.

The feeling of unease, meaninglessness and hopelessness about life, freedom and life’s choices is referred to as an existential crisis, also called existential anxiety. One feels that the foundations on which their life was built are crumbling.

This feeling arises due to loss of safety and security, transitions and difficulty in adapting, leading one to question the meaning of existence and our place in it. Example: A student moving away from home or someone going through a difficult divorce.
