Diet 16:8, How to new lose  WEIGHT - After Lebaran, many people are looking for ways to lose weight. Among the many ways to lose weight, the pattern of intake or diet 16: 8 may be an option.

The research team led by Krista Varady, assistant professor of kinesiology and nutrition from the University of Illinois at Chicago has just reported the effectiveness of a 16: 8 diet pattern in the journal Nutrition and Healthy Aging.

The 16: 8 diet is a dietary intake that allows eating only eight hours a day. The rest, or 16 hours, is used for fasting.

Varady tested the pattern of intake similar to the duration of Ramadan fasting in 23 obese people aged 45 years.

Participants were allowed to consume any type of food they liked in an unlimited amount from 10am to 6pm.

After the 'breaking fast' period, they are required to fast food and are only allowed to consume mineral water or calorie-free drinks for the remaining 16 hours.

Researchers monitored participants who went on a diet for 12 weeks. The results of the last observation were compared with other intermittent diets, which were alternating fasting which allowed eating one full day and the day after fasting.

Researchers found a diet pattern of 16: 8 makes a person consume an average of 350 fewer calories.

Also, their systolic blood pressure dropped by an average of 7 mmHg. However, insulin resistance, cholesterol, and fat mass remained the same between the two groups compared.

"The results we saw in this study are similar to the results we have seen in other studies on other fasting diet patterns," Varady said.

"However, one of the benefits of a 16: 8 diet might be easier for the community. We observed that fewer participants failed this pattern compared to other dietary patterns," he continued.

"These preliminary data offer hope for a diet that is paused as a fat-loss technique for people who are obese, but for the long term, (required) trials on a large scale," said Krista Varady, quoted from medical News Today.
