Fasting for health

A recent 2015 paper in Cell Biology suggests that a temporary (five-day) low-calorie diet (around 700 to 1100 calories) can mimic the effects of fasting and bring dramatic improvements in what are essentially the various major modern diseases. I think it's worth a try at some point in the near future. Similar benefits have also been found in studies on yeast and mice.
