Paying attention to when you eat is as important as what you're eating. Intermittent fasting is a simple way to start experimenting with a diet. It requires you to abstain from food, or at least most food, for specific periods.
Diets based on intermittent fasting shows a huge list of benefits, such as weight loss, balancing out one's blood sugar, and mental clarity.
There are three approaches to take:
The diet doesn't specify what you should be eating, only when.
Typical Western diets consist of simple carbohydrates, such as pizza or sandwiches. These food items provide the glucose your body uses as fuel. Spiking glucose increases insulin levels, which the body uses to process blood sugars.
A 12-week randomized trial found that overweight adults who started time-restricted eating lost about the same weight as a control group, and most of the weight lost was lean muscle mass, not fat.
But the take on time-restricted eating is still open because so few studies exist that examine its effects.
