Intermittent fasting is a diet based on the use of periodic fasting and a short (usually several hours) diet window. Eg 18 h post + 6 h feeding window. The IF diet showed that despite the common myths, you can eat all the calories in the afternoon (when a diet window will fall out there) and … lose weight.
The overall caloric balance is important for slimming, and the timing of carbohydrate administration is important for people with glycemic problems. Recently, scientists 1 invited 8 men aged 35-70 in the initial stage predestinating to diabetes. Men 5 weeks were eating normally or 3 meals from 8 am to 8 pm. In another 5 weeks, a diet in the form of intermittent fasting was used. Men ate 3 meals between 8 am and 12 noon.
After 5 weeks of diet in the form of intermittent fasting, men responded with a lower dose of insulin after loading carbohydrates (glucose). And that means that men needed less insulin to lower blood sugar levels, so intermittent fasting improved insulin sensitivity. In addition, there was a drop in blood pressure, and men less hungry for food than in the conventional diet. This is a promising direction and perhaps the IF will find application in the prevention of type II diabetes.
