Fasting is voluntarily not eating any food for varying lengths of time. Fasting has been used as a therapy for many different conditions as well as a part of spiritual/religious practices throughout history. It has gained a great deal of interest in the past few years as a potential approach to integrate to prevent cancer, improve the effectiveness of chemotherapy and reduce cancer development.

The other 10-11 hours utilize the anti inflammatory diet with minimal restrictions.
