HONOLULU (KHON2) — It’s a popular diet trend, but a new clinical study reveals that intermittent fasting might not be as healthy as first thought.
The study found that people lost little weight – and much of that came from muscle mass.
After observing weight loss results from 116 adults who were considered overweight or obese, it was determined that intermittent fasting – where you only eat during an 8-hour window – did not yield significant outcomes.
Only losing a half pound more compared to the people who ate their meals at typical intervals.
It also had little effect on blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
