Intermittent diets are supposed to limit the amount of calories the body takes in without the constant frustration of a traditional restrictive diet. But are they equally effective for weight loss? The question at the heart of a burgeoning field of research has yet to be scientifically resolved.
A study published last week Journal of the American Heart Association suggests that eating smaller meals would be more beneficial than fasting. In this work, carried out over six years, researchers followed the eating behavior of 550 adults, many of whom were obese. In particular, they noted the times, frequency and size of meals and snacks, as well as the time of waking up and sleeping through a mobile application. These data were compared with the weight trajectories of participants registered in electronic health registries.
