Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting has been a trend for a few years now. Dr. Ethan Weiss, a cardiologist at the University of California, San Francisco, started researching this topic in 2013, and even started practicing it himself. Weiss started a clinical trial in order to learn more about the potential benefits of intermittent fasting. The goal of the trial was to compare the health of patients who were fasting between 8pm and 12pm and a control group that ate at 3 regular mealtimes. Interestingly scientists found no significant differences in weight loss, fat mass, cholesterol, or blood sugar control between the two groups. Furthermore, fasting patients actually had more lean mass than fat mass loss compared to the group with 3 regular meal times. This study provides further evidence that a lifestyle such as that of Metabolic Balance that is based on 3 regular meals is the way to optimal health!
