Optimally you would have 12-16 hours of fasting between your evening meal and breakfast as this allows the body to enter into its natural repair mode.

Fasting for longer than 8 hours (overnight) allows the body’s metabolic processes to repair damage to cells, dispose of used hormone and toxins and restore optimum function of the bodily systems. Having a good gap (2-3 hours) between your evening meal and sleep aids digestion and helps to promote a deeper sleep.


When fasting your body enters 'repair mode'.
