    Default Time - Intermittent Dieting

    In a recent study, presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, British researchers found that women who eliminated carbohydrate-rich foods like bread, pasta, potatoes and rice two days a week and ate their normal diet the rest of the time lost an average of 9 lb. over four months. Meanwhile, women in a similar group who ate a 1,500-cal.-per-day Mediterranean-style diet for the same time period lost only 5 lb.

    Women on the intermittent diet not only lost more weight but also showed greater improvements on other markers of health, including levels of insulin and leptin.
    I wonder if the mechanism here is calorie cycling. IMHO it would have been nice to compare 2 days of low carbing to 7 days of low carbing.

    If someone says something about you, and it really bothers you, it's probably because it's true.

    Whoa... I just tried searching for this study and either it they're trying to hide it, or Google has it so far buried, we'll never find it. My question is the same as Kimbo's -- and I'd also like to know if this only applies to women, or would men have similar reactions to this sort of intermittent diet?

    There was a similar idea floating around, fasting every other day. It was tested on mice with positive results.

    hmm- interesting idea. I just wonder if it would be harder to fast on those certain days if on the other days you are eating the normal foods.
