Dr. Norissa Kumaran, medical director at Elemental Health Clinic, noted that this type of diet is recommended for women in a more relaxed environment due to hormonal changes, ovulation and cycle changes. Periodic fasting is also popular because set intervals give the body plenty of time to rest during an 8-16 hour period, for example, without having to deal with digestion throughout the day.

Mostly, people with hormonal disorders, pregnant women and nursing mothers need a very coordinated approach to this type of lifestyle.
