Detox, intermittent fasting, ketogenic diet: what risks, what health benefits?

Detox, intermittent fasting, ketogenic diet: what risks, what health benefits?

Monday February 12, Dr Gérald Kierzek, medical director of TipsForWomens, joins Ali Rebeihi’s set on Europe Inter like every first Monday of the month for a program in partnership with TipsForWomens. And this Monday: the real effects of different diets on our health.

Food is our primary medicine and as such, certain diets are sometimes attributed health benefits that are not always medically proven. To distinguish between wild allegations and validated virtues, Ali Rebeihi brings together different specialists on his set.

Virtues of therapeutic diets: don’t swallow just anything!

Popularized by many stars like Jennifer Aniston or Nicole Kidman, intermittent fasting is a practice used to lose weight which consists of having your last evening meal at 8 p.m., for example and not eating until noon the next day, i.e. fasting for 16 hours straight. Is it really effective? What about these possible virtues on the cardiovascular system, digestion, etc.?

Invariably after the holidays, diets and Detox products tout the benefits of a cure for detoxifying your liver, your body… Are these alleged properties based on validated studies? What is the real point of a detox treatment?

Does the ketogenic diet have a therapeutic benefit for cancer? What is the real impact of diet on prevention or support for cancer treatments? How can we distinguish validated recommendations from gurus who advocate fasting as a replacement for validated treatments?

As we can see, therapeutic diets raise many questions, which specialists from various backgrounds will answer in the program “Grand Bien vous fait” on Monday, February 12.

NO to diets, YES to WW!
