Title:
Intermittent Fasting: how long is enough?
Authors:
de Castro, Andreia Filipa Luis
Abstract:
The rise in obesity numbers worldwide have led to an increase in associated co morbidities and consequently to a rise in the direct and indirect costs to society. For these reasons it is essential to treat obese and overweight individuals and to prevent the emergence of new cases. However, one of the most widely used approaches for the treatment of obesity, the daily calorie restriction diets, have been shown to be ineffective due to low adherence, becoming urgent to find new methods for control and treat this multifactorial disease. Therefore, intermittent fasting approaches have gained popularity because they have been shown to be effective in reducing body weight and body fat, while preserving lean tissue and, as such, have been seen as a solution to the replacement of traditional daily caloric restriction diets.
