Fasting is one of the many eating trends that has only taken over the fitness community in the past years. It has been in practice since the ancient times to promote health.
Fasting is also the cause of many conservatives rolling their eyes in an attempt to express their disgust toward the atrocity of starving one's self just to look and feel good.
Atrocity and starvation - these are emotional and subjective words that put fasting in a very bad light. To put things in the right perspective, allow us to quickly define starvation, and take a trip back in history.
Starvation is involuntary. It occurs because there is an absolute absence of food. It's a circumstance the person who is starving cannot control. On the other hand, fasting is a voluntary action. When you choose to fast, you still have control of your circumstance. Therefore, fasting only becomes atrocious when the body is already suffering, but you still choose to continue. This is not what fasting promotes. Apart from weight loss, fasting encourages the formation of an eating pattern that leads to a healthier and fuller life. With the fact that there is still "eating" involved with fasting, comparing it to starvation is the real atrocity.
