Intermittent post (Intermittent fasting) – what does science say?

If anyone is interested in various trends about the diet, certainly have the opportunity to become familiar with something such as intermittent fasting. On the one hand, this seems like a rather interesting idea, but on the other hand, a red light turns on immediately saying something is wrong. I wanted to take a closer look at this diet and see what science really says. So real, supported by research. Does it really work or is it another invention of some celebrity? I invite you to the text

Intermittent fasting – what is it with?

In one of the studies presented, intermittent fasting was as follows

“Fasting day where a person consumed 25% of the energy needed

“Day of eating where a person ate as much as he wants

As you can see, the attitude was not strictly about not eating anything on certain days, but rather reducing the amount. Mainly the results were as positive as possible, at least when it comes to the short diet period. In addition, most people, despite the fact that they could eat “as much as they want during certain days, still tried to be careful with how much they eat, knowing that they are still on a diet. Some studies have shown that intermittent fasting is as effective as the daily calorie restriction. In addition, side effects were not as common in subjects. You can also meet other forms of intermittent fasting such as eating meals only at specific times of the day, e.g. from 8am to 5pm.

A positive aspect for people who use this diet will certainly be the fact that the subjects felt satisfaction without

restrictions on food intake


hyperphagia (excessive appetite)

In addition, people who do not eat often during the day or eat two meals a day are more likely to adapt well to intermittent fasting. One of the potential disadvantages that we can face with this diet is when we have to take meals like diabetes at a certain time of the day, or when we have to take a meal because of medications.


As you can see looking at the research, intermittent fasting may be the most good solution for all sorts of people from obese to people who just want to lose a few kilos. Certainly this is not just a temporary fashion but a fairly good solution for people who want to get rid of fat for a short period of time. However, this is not a diet that is recommended for a long time, despite the fact that it does not have too many negative effects.
