The Endocrine Society, in a fresh study, explored one of the benefits linked with practicing intermittent fasting.

The researchers’ report stated that eating all food and snacks within an eight to 10-hour window can help to lessen the risk of metabolic disease, including diabetes and heart disease, agency report stated.

ConsumerConnect reports one of the previous studies on healthy eating also indicated how intermittent fasting can help improve overall health and contribute to longer life.

According to researchers from Johns Hopkins Medicine, intermittent fasting is based in science and produces real results.

Consumers should feel confident about following the diet plan since it’s effective at helping shed pounds and boosting health more broadly, they had noted.

Mark Mattson, PhD, one of the researchers in the study, said that “intermittent fasting could be part of a healthy lifestyle.”

Likewise in the latest study, researcher Satchidananda Panda, Ph.D, stated: “People who are trying to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle should pay more attention to when they eat as well as what they eat.

“Time-restricted eating is an easy-to-follow and effective dietary strategy that requires less mental math than counting calories.

“Intermittent fasting can improve sleep and a person’s quality of life as well as reduce the risk of obesity.”

As regards the health benefits of intermittent fasting for the study, the researchers analysed prior studies, clinical data, and the science behind intermittent fasting to better understand the health benefits of time-restricted eating.

In the end, they learned that sticking to an eight to 10-hour window of eating all meals and snacks can be beneficial to a person’s long-term metabolic health.

They explained that eating in this way helps regulate hormone levels and gets the body’s internal clock back on track.

In doing this, people are likely to reap the countless health benefits associated with intermittent fasting.

The study showed that regularly following this method of eating can help to reduce the risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and liver disease.

While it may not be an easy transition for consumers, the researchers explained that there are no dietary restrictions, and it can be a good way to be healthier long-term.

Dr. Panda also stated: “Eating at random times breaks the synchrony of our internal program and makes us prone to diseases.

“Intermittent fasting is a lifestyle that anyone can adopt. It can help eliminate health disparities and lets everyone live a healthy and fulfilling life.”
