16-hour intermittent fasting may benefit health most: study
A Chinese research team has found that a 16-hour intermittent fasting plan may benefit health the most. This was reported by The Xinhua News Agency.
Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern in which people cycle between periods of eating and fasting. It does not say which foods to eat but when one should eat. It has remained unclear whether a "timer" exists to record fasting duration and trigger health-benefiting effects.
Researchers from China's Hunan Normal University examined 600 samples across four metabolic tissues of mice, including liver, skeletal muscle, brown fat, and white fat. The mice were under five feeding schedules.
