While there are many diet fads and trends that come and go, there is one that has not only seen growing momentum as of late- but one that has a long history of effectively promoting a number of positive health benefits; Intermittent Fasting. Intermittent Fasting (otherwise known as a Partially Restrictive Diet) has been scientifically proven to aid in weight loss, and- have beneficial effects on a wide range of biological functions in general.
Intermittent Fasting is a sort of eating regimen (based within a 24 hour period/ 1 day) where you can fast for an extended period of time, and then eat… then alternate the two periods. There are a variety of ways the regimen can be arranged. One of the more popular is a ‘16/8’, where you fast for a 16-hour segment- and then eat a preset number of small meals during the remaining 8-hour segment. Another popular way is the ‘5/1’, where you fast for 5 hours and then plan low-calorie meal intake(s) during a 1 hour period, and then repeat.
During a fast the body’s insulin drops which helps to promote fat burning. Increases in levels of the Human Growth Hormone (HGH)- which promotes both fat burning and muscle building- have also been identified in a number o f studies. Research has revealed that Fasting can directly help to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Intermittent Fasting has been proven to accelerate weight loss by a factor of 3-8% (over 3-10 week period) when compared to other sorts of Diet Programs.
Partially Restrictive Diets have also been proven to reduce oxidative damage by enhancing the body’s resistance to oxidative stress. Intermittent Fasting can also aid in reducing the inflammation response in our bodies, while also encouraging a reduced risk of Heart Disease.
