A new study finds that skipping meals one day a month could help prevent a heart attack. The research, conducted at the University of Utah, observed that fasting for 24 hours cuts the risk of coronary disease by up to 40%. The authors of the study believe that a break from food helps "re-set" the body's metabolism, which in turn helps it to run more efficiently. We're wondering if it counts as fasting when we're too hungover to keep anything down but Gatorade. 'Cause if that's the case, we're like gonna live forever. [Daily Mail]
