What is “feasting”? The refeeding process after a deliberate period of not eating (fasting).
What is “re-feeding syndrome”
Refeeding syndrome has been defined as the “potentially fatal shifts in fluids and electrolytes that may occur individuals with prolonged malnutrition (mainly low phosphorus) Refeeding problems can happen once food is given, particularly carbohydrate-containing foods. During the refeeding period, insulin and other hormones are activated. This causes electrolyte shifts. (phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium) Avoid by not fasting if you're malnourished. Very long fasts should be have doctors supervision for slow introduction of food.
Why is refeeding so important? Autophagy happens during fasting and in order to replenish those expunged damaged proteins et al, you need nutrients(material) to rebuild new, healthy cells and tissue. **Some could argue that refeeding is even more important than fasting.**
What are the most nutrient dense foods to refeed with? Vegan options?
