Intermittent fasting has gained substantial attention in recent years for its potential health benefits, particularly in weight management. A one-year study published in the New England Journal of Medicine examined the effects of a 16-hour fasting window, coupled with an 8-hour eating window, on weight loss and overall health. This study provides valuable insights into the efficacy and sustainability of such dietary practices.
The Study Design:
The study involved a diverse group of participants, ranging from different age groups and backgrounds, to ensure a representative sample. The participants were instructed to adhere to a time-restricted eating pattern, where they fasted for 16 hours and were allowed to consume all their daily calories within an 8-hour eating window. The study monitored their progress for an entire year.
Over the course of the one-year study, participants experienced significant changes in their weight and overall health. On average, participants lost approximately 16 pounds, in a year.
However, further research is needed to better understand the long-term effects and safety of intermittent fasting, especially in different demographic groups and individuals with specific health conditions. Additionally, ongoing studies will provide more insights into the mechanisms that underlie the observed benefits of this dietary approach.
New peer-reviewed human trial studies are going to change everything we think we know about diets. In the studies published in the Nutrition Journal and the Obesity Journal consisted of 80% women and 20% men. No one in the study was allowed to exercise as they did not want exercise to be an out liar.
The results of the study shocked the medical world. On average men and women lost 16 lbs. in a month and yet they gained 6% lean muscle mass. In addition, there were also significant reduction in blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglycerides and a reduction of 25% in inflammation in 30 days.
