Default The power of intermittent fasting - science begins to catch up with Our Lady asks for

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-19112549

"Scientists are uncovering evidence that short periods of fasting, if properly controlled, could achieve a number of health benefits, as well as potentially helping the overweight, as Michael Mosley discovered."

Our Lady asks for bread and water fasting on Wednesdays and Fridays
Maybe science will eventually discover that this formula is actually best for us.

We can be sure that Our Lady would not ask for something which was harmful to us.

Yes, fasting also helps us control our flesh. Spirit over flesh.

Fasting also helps us discipline ourselves, and we can fast on other things as well, other than food (self-denial).
