Intermittent fasting is a type of time-restricted eating (typically 16 hours of fasting and 8 hours of eating), which has become popular in recent years. It has many potential long-term health benefits and holds promise as a possible new paradigm in the approach to weight loss and the reduction of inflammation. An eating pattern known as intermittent fasting (IF) alternates between periods of fasting and eating.It focuses on the timing of when you should eat certain foods rather than the specific foods themselves.
Types of intermittent fasting
A) Time-restricted feeding is a type of eating that only occurs during a specific number of hours each day, frequently establishing a regular daily pattern of caloric intake within an 8–12-hour time schedule. This timetable might match circadian rhythms and food intake.
B) Fasting on alternate days
This entails alternating between a 24-hour "fast day" during which the person consumes less than 25% of their daily caloric demands, and a 24-hour "feast day" during which they do not fast. Due to the increased number of fasting days per week, it is the most difficult type of intermittent fasting. Complete alternate-day fasting and Modified alternate-day fasting are the two categories under which it is separated.
Complete alternate-day fasting is when no calories are ingested on fasting days (also known as total intermittent energy restriction). As nothing is to be consumed, it is also known as a dry fast.
Modified alternate-day fasting (also known as partial intermittent energy restriction) allows for up to 25% of a person's daily caloric needs to be consumed on fasting days rather than a full fast. Similar to how normal days alternate with this
C) Recurrent fasting or daylong fasting
This includes any stretch of time that is uninterrupted and lasts more than 24 hours, from the 5:2 diet's one or two fasting days per week to the more extreme variation that includes multiple days or weeks of fasting. Instead of completely fasting on the fasting days, eating of 500–700 calories, or around 25% of daily caloric intake, may be permitted.A recent study suggests that intermittent fasting may enhance a crucial protein that regulates inflammation and guards the heart.
In order to lose weight, it also restricts a person's consumption of food and beverages to specific periods of the day or week. There is no one way to do it, although one common regimen involves switching between 24-hour intervals.
