Intermittent Fasting – a new way to diet?

A recent article in mindbodygreen.com suggest that ‘Intermittent Fasting’ (IF) can be an efficient and long term way to lose weight. Author Melanie Avalon says “It’s no secret that typical calorie restriction tends to be miserably unsustainable, as determined dieters meticulously log every bite of food they consume. Many of them end up bingeing or consuming low-calorie frankenfoods in an attempt to fill an ever-expanding ravenous black hole”. She claims there is a way to “indulge without restriction while stoking the fires of your metabolism, boosting energy, saying goodbye to cravings, and likely losing even more weight than with typical dieting’? She continues:
“With intermittent fasting you simply restrict the hours you eat each day rather than what you eat. No conscious “dieting” required!” There are many IF approaches, such as the common 16-8 protocol (when you eat in an eight-hour window, for example, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., or 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.) or the one-meal-a-day pattern (in which you eat everything in one meal, such as lunch or dinner). “But as long as you’re doing it for at least 12 hours, you should get a lot of the benefits” explains Avalon.
