Intermittent fasting vs continuous calorie restrictions – which is better?

The most successful participants lost between 0.5kg and 1kg a week for each week of the study

Intermittent fasting has come out as the winner for weight loss, as well as other metabolic health markers, even when energy intake matches other diets, Adelaide researchers have found.

In their study of different diets in a group of women, intermittent fasters who consumed 70% of their required energy intake lost the most weight and recorded better lipid measures than others.
