Alternate Day Fasting for Weight Loss in Obese Subjects

2014-08-27 03:19:57 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Background:

The ability of modified alternate day fasting (ADF) (i.e. consuming 25% of energy needs on the fast day, ad libitum fed on feed day) to facilitate weight loss and lower vascular disease risk in obese individuals remains unknown. Objective:

This study examined the effects of ADF, administered under controlled versus self-implemented conditions, on body weight and coronary heart disease (CHD) risk indicators in obese adults.

Design:

Sixteen obese subjects (12 women/4 men) completed a 10-week trial, consisting of 3 phases: 1) 2-week control phase, 2) 4-week weight loss/ADF controlled feeding phase, and 3) 4-week weight loss/ADF self-selected feeding phase.
