(Jasper Pickering, Business Insider) There can be downsides to fasting diets, says registered dietitian Rachel Clare, including negative impacts on your social life and well being.
Clare spoke about the potential dangers of intermittent fasting:

“It can work in different sorts of ways so maybe the normal five days and low calorie two days or they condense all of their meals into eight hours of the day.
“The studies don’t necessarily say that this is a sustainable way for weight loss and also in my eyes the intermittent fasting affects people’s lifestyles a lot.
“People are putting their eating habits before general life and prioritizing their diets before socializing.”
