Intermittent fasting has proven to be a good method for weight loss but many of us cannot commit to the discipline required to do it. Never fear, ladies and gentlemen, it appears we can achieve the same benefits with 90-minutes! What!?!
A new study has found that moving the times at which we eat breakfast and dinner ahead by 90-minutes can achieve the same metabolic goals as seen with intermittent fasting.
Intermittent fasting is said to increase the human growth hormone. This increases our energy, ability to repair and regenerate, and minimizes the effects of aging. The beauty of simplicity if waiting to eat your first meal.
Can waiting to eat breakfast and dinner really sensitize our bodies to insulin, normalize hormones, and slow the aging process? According to this study, absolutely. In 10-weeks, participants body weight decreased nearly 2%. They didn’t eat different foods. They didn’t exercise more. They just changed the time they ate.
If you’d consider a cross between intermittent fasting and changing of the times you eat, how about the touted 5-2 Diet? It’s a combination of Intermittent fasting for 2-days and 5-days of whatever your heart desires. The kicker here is shifting your meal times by 90-minutes. Good luck!
