Intermittent Fasting Not Effective for Long-Term Weight Loss: New Research

Researchers at UC San Francisco found that the wildly popular diet craze of time-restricted intermittent fasting is not very effective as a weight loss strategy.

This is going to be very disappointing to many, many people.

With 73% of America, overweight and 42% of those are obese people are desperate for a solution.

People lost 2 lbs. in 12 Weeks which is really discouraging. 

This study, which included 116 men and women with a body mass index (BMI) of 27 to 46, found that people who were randomly assigned to only eat during an eight-hour period each day lost 2 lbs.  (kg) on average over the 12-week period, while those with consistent meal timing lost an average of 1.5 lbs. (0.68 kg).

The latest research shows that all diets do not work in the long run. Diets now have been proven in the long run to cause a loss of lean muscle mass and also to have no impact on removing toxins from our bodies or lowering inflammation.

More importantly, diets do not work in the long run because they have also been shown to slow our basal metabolic rate (the rate at which we burn calories when we are at rest or sleeping). The basal metabolic rate is critical to losing weight and maintaining your weight in the long run.

Regular Eating Hours versus Time-Restricted-Eating Hours

The study found no significant difference between the two groups in total weight loss or in other markers, such as fat mass, lean mass, fasting insulin, or glucose, HbA1C levels, energy intake, or total or resting energy expenditure.  

First author Dylan A. Lowe, Ph.D., and corresponding author Ethan J. Weiss, MD, are both affiliated with the UCSF Cardiovascular Research Institute. Additional findings, authors, and affiliations can be found in the paper, published on Sept. 28, 2020, in JAMA Internal Medicine

You can draw your own conclusion but the science which has no agenda, or hype as it reveals this new conclusion that diets do not work in the long run period.

The scientific evidence is clear.

Everything we thought we knew about diet, nutrition, and exercise is turning out to be totally wrong.

The concept of calories in versus calories out as a way to lose weight is now totally debunked in clinical studies. The main reason is that it is not about how many calories you consume but about how much nutrition is in the calories you eat.

Look around and you will find more diets, nutritional plans, and exercise programs than ever before and yet we are getting fatter and fatter every day.

In the documentary on Amazon called “Fat Fiction” they project that within 15 years 100% of America will be overweight and 1 in 3 will be a diabetic.

Does anyone think that what we are doing as to diets, nutrition and exercise are having any impact on the biggest pandemic facing mankind and which is Obesity?

Is there any hope?

The great news is that there is no hard scientific evidence in 5 peer-reviewed clinical studies that there is hope for the discovery of a breakthrough protocol.

We certainly need a solution.

The new studies revealed that many people can lose as much weight in 4 days as in 6 to 8 weeks of diet and exercise. The subjects in the peer-reviewed studies, not only did not lose lean muscle mass, but they actually Increased their percentage of lean muscle.

In addition, the studies revealed that this revolutionary new breakthrough protocol removed toxins from the body and lowered inflammation.

The main reason to do this is not to lose weight but instead to support the body in removing toxins. The incredible side benefit is that people lose tremendous amounts of weight quickly and safely. This new protocol is changing people’s lives.

We know it sounds too good to be true.

That is what we thought until science proved it was real.
