Scientists now know that short-term acute “stress” has powerful health and longevity benefits, as long as the stress subsides at some point.
For example, it’s long been known that exercise is good for us, but it wasn’t exactly clear why. Hormesis is the likely explanation.
Consuming nothing at all can also put your body into a temporary state of nutritional adversity. Extended malnourishment is not good, but smaller doses of calorie restriction can help promote longevity.
