Jason Shon Bennett.
A man known as the ''Fast-Master'' will share his story
and philosophies about ''regular intelligent fasting'' (RIF) in
Queenstown next month.
Jason Shon Bennett, of Auckland, was once a chronic asthmatic
and prone to catching seasonal illnesses, including colds,
flus and viruses.
However, after making a decision to overhaul his diet and
incorporating regular ''intelligent'' fasting into his weekly
routine, Mr Bennett said he had been without illness and
medication - including his asthma inhaler - for 20 years.
His philosophy is based on observations humans were
''designed to fast'', similar to most animals who endured
lean periods caused by famine and disasters.
''In the modern world, where many people over-eat, fasting
regularly and 'intelligently' alongside ... small diet and
lifestyle changes is an easy way to mimic this natural
pattern and, in doing so, help ward off the precursors of
chronic illnesses including heart disease, diabetes and
Now a health mentor, international speaker and author, Mr
Bennett - along with his team of qualified naturopaths,
nutritionists and wholefoods chefs - was sharing his ''life
plan'' with those interested in learning about how RIF could
help break food addictions and transform gut and bowel
health, among other things.
Mr Bennett will be speaking on October 17 at the Tanoa Aspen
Hotel, Fernhill, from 7pm.
