Chef Bruno Loubet just opened his second London venue, Grain Store, on Granary Square in King’s Cross.

The BBC documentary ‘Eat, Fast and Live Longer’ aired in August last year featured Dr Michael Mosley, a physician, journalist and TV presenter who tried to figure out the effects of intermittent fasting. At the end of the fast, tests revealed that he had managed to decrease his risk for cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. See the Guardian review of this documentary and an article in the Telegraph by Dr Mosley where he describes his experience with different intermittent fasting regimens.
The theory behind this is fairly simple. Fasting
