Fasting - Effects on the Human Body and Psyche Abstract. Fasting has become a trend: to lose weight, to increase well-being, or to heal acute and chronic diseases. The positive and negative effects of fasting are controversially discussed. The aim of this pilot study was to investigate the possible effects of fasting on body and well-being/psychic features. A group of twelve healthy volunteers (ten women and two men) was fasting for one week. Several clinical (body weight, blood pressure) and mental (feeling hungry, feeling cold, mood, power, and sleep quality) parameters were measured during this period. Side effects were recorded as well. This pilot study showed a wide range of effects and remarkable interindividual variation.
