Fasting increases metabolism by Michael Cummins, Sat 23 Dec '17

Fasting increases metabolism

"Most people expect that a period of fasting will leave them feeling tired and drained of energy ... the body is still being fueled— it’s just getting energy from burning fat ... it’s also because adrenaline is used to release stored glycogen and to facilitate fat-burning ... studies show that after a four-day fast, resting energy expenditure increased by 12 percent. Rather than slowing the metabolism, fasting revs it up."
