Intermittent fasting diet induces weight loss
16:8 diet for weight loss - short science articles

Researchers have found that time-restricted eating, i.e. fasting during a select few hours in a day could induce weight loss in obese individuals as compared to controls. This time restricted dieting plan actually resulted in a lower consumption of calories through the day. Additionally, there was a fall in the blood pressure as well. This diet is named so because it involves 16 hours of 'fasting' and 8 hours of 'feasting'. These results are similar to the alternate day fasting regimen but the 16:8 diet plan is easier to maintain for people.
