The results of several recent meta-analyses of randomized clinical trials have shown a wide variety of health benefits associated with intermittent fasting. However, little work has been done to assess the quality and strength of the existing evidence for this diet. In this study, we graded published meta-analyses of RCTs by assessing whether intermittent fasting regimens have a beneficial effect on health outcomes related to obesity.
The most successful studies involved participants who were obese or overweight. The studies found that fasting for 16 hours two to three days per week led to significant improvements in obesity-related health outcomes. Unlike other popular diets, intermittent fasting focuses on the quality of food consumed instead of the quantity. Moreover, people who practice this type of fasting showed better endurance when they ran. Moreover, it reduced damage to tissues during surgery and improved results in patients.
In addition, the results of these studies showed that intermittent fasting can result in clinically significant weight loss in overweight and obese individuals. In addition, the studies have also shown that this type of diet can improve metabolic health. The researchers at the University of Illinois Chicago in Chicago reviewed nine previous studies to determine the effectiveness of intermittent fasting. The results of these studies show that these diets are similar to calorie-restricted diets. In addition, they may improve blood pressure, insulin resistance, cholesterol, gut microbiome, and appetite regulation.
