Brain Health According to a Stanford Center Study, fasting had positive effects on something called Neuronal Circuits. What are Neuronal Circuits? They’re the medium that carries the nerve cells when you're body is sending signals to and from your brain. It calms them down and stabilizes them so you can focus better, and promote mental clarity. As oppose to coffee, which tries to amp them up in an attempt to get you focused, but then I end up not being able to focus on anything. Digestive system If you are constantly eating throughout the day, your digestive system is constantly working and using acids to break down what you just ate. According to a Cleveland Clinic study, it takes 65% of your body's energy to break food down. That’s why you get tired after you eat, and you want to go take a nap. If you're following a meal plan that tells you to spread out your meals, technically you're putting a lot of extra stress on your digestive system. Having a fasting period gives your digestive system a break, so your body can pay more attention to other things, like your immune system.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
