Mused after hearing about the tragedies in Dayton and El Paso. While there are many factors that can be blamed, mental health and a lack of a connection with society are two that are common threads with these events. Let’s hope as a country we make strides to help those who feel helpless and isolated.
Typical diets involve cutting calories whereas intermittent fasting reduces calories by restricting eating through time-restrictions. In other words, not eating before noon or any time after 7 p.m. or even fasting one day a week reduces calories. The theory is that man evolved and adapted by having periods of low caloric intake when food was scarce. Our current metabolism might be better suited to this time caloric restriction.
A 2017 review of the science published about all forms of caloric restriction concluded that both forms are about equal in their effectiveness. A small randomized study in 2018 published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded the same findings.
(Did You Know? I read another study over the weekend about this and the author concluded that there were advantages to the time-restriction theory. Then I read where he only used 46 patients. Too few, in my opinion, to draw a meaningful conclusion. The point is always check your sources, like a good reporter.)
What to do:
Personal preferences, genetic makeup, and environmental factors all need to be taken into account. Those who get weak, dizzy, shaky or cranky when skipping meals should avoid fasting. It may not be appropriate for diabetics also. Even if your choice is fasting make sure you eat a healthy, well balanced diet. Fasting should not be an excuse to make poor dietary choices.
