According to new studies, intermittent fasting helps people lose weight

 
With all the focus on calorie management and generating a calorie deficit, intermittent fasting drew a lot of attention since it allowed you to eat anything you wanted for a certain amount of time. Surprisingly, many people are losing weight without denying themselves their favorite foods. Now, a group of experts has shown that the diet helps people lose weight while also suppressing hunger. 

What is the mechanism behind it? 
To practice intermittent fasting, one must fast for 15 to 18 hours. The guy can eat whatever he wants for the next 8-6 hours. While the diet plan does not push you to binge on harmful foods, it also does not urge you to give up your everyday diet.
 
The research 
According to a new study, eating at times that are similar to your normal routine may help you burn fat and feel satisfied for longer. The study, which was published in the journal Obesity, followed 11 overweight men and women between the ages of 20 and 45 for four days at two different meal times. 
 
Participants could eat between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. under one plan. The researchers chose this timeframe because it allowed for two different meal-time strategies: fasting for at least 15 hours and forcing people to eat earlier to meet their body's internal clock. The 6-hour window is the smallest eating window, and it does not appear to be a sustainable diet.
 
The second plan permitted individuals to eat at regular American meal hours of 8 a.m., 1 p.m., and 8 p.m. In a month's time, all participants were required to test both food regimens. For both eating regimens, they could eat the same amount of food. To see how the two eating techniques affected their metabolism, the participants were assessed using a variety of methods, including blood samples, urine tests, and a breathing chamber that measured energy use. 
 
Fasting reduced the participants' appetite, which was measured by self-reported surveys as well as monitoring the level of ghrelin in the body, which is a hormone that stimulates hunger.
 
The bottom Line 
The discovery astonished experts who were trying to figure out how intermittent fasting affected weight loss. “What we think this suggests is that when you lose weight, you burn more body fat but preserve muscle mass,” one of the co-authors explained. Because the sample size was small and the time range was constrained, the researchers agreed that more research was needed to fully understand the impact.
