I'm a fan ot intermittent fasting. It does seem to work for me. I had a cardiologist tell me that it is a good thing to do for weight management. His suggestion was to stop eating right after dinner (be done by 7 pm) and if you are hungry to have a cup of tea. When I stick to this, weight is usually much easier to manage and when I have pounds to lose, I do. From morning until dinner though, I eat meals at regular intervals with a snack like a yogurt or a banana thrown in a couple of times if I'm hungry. I think the thing is finding what works for the individual person. My son has to eat heavy protein before bed to feel good when he wakes up. We've found that for him through trial and error.
I'm not interested in time-restricted eating (only) because some writers feel it improves the chance of losing weight. It just seems sensible based on the way people evolved. When humans were hunter-gatherers, unless the gathering was really good it doesn't seem like they munched all day the way we do. And especially it seems unlikely that the food they ate was so high in carbs and simple sugars (and sodium, and artificial ingredients of all kinds). Whether they fasted for lots of hours in a day or just had random berries or nuts all day long along with the occasional big meal when the hunting was successful, I have no way to know. But it does seem like humans are built for a different diet than we eat today. (By a long shot.) I am glad when I've been 12 or more hours in between meals, because I'm concerned about high, constant levels of blood sugar without ever a drop. This is due to concerns more about not feeding inflammation than about weight loss.
I have said this before, but I don't see how intermittent fasting is either fasting or useful unless it just means you're skipping a meal you didn't need anyway for fuel. If you eat the same amount you did before, you're consuming the exact same amount of food but in a compressed period of time, which just means more difficult digestion. True fasting, on the other hand, which lasts at least an entire day, can be very spiritual and can re-regulate a body. Hunter-gatherers did true fasting not on purpose when where they were living started to run out of food, in which case they had to move elsewhere so that place could regenerate. It wasn't a choice. But as said above, if it works for you, and you can only know that long-term because compressing your food intake over a long period of time might have adverse consequences. I'm guessing nobody knows this. So if it works for you short-term, okay, but you are taking a risk long-term. I personally don't think I'd trust a heart doc on my diet. I'd rather go to someone who actually studies food, just saying. But that's just me. Peace.
Ya, it beneficiary if you eat less and healthy calories but if you are eating same about of calories then there is no way it's beneficiary for you. it work for me for losing a lot of weight.
Thanks have a nice day.
