The 16:8 diet is a form of intermittent fasting that has proven to be a fast and effective way to lose weight. Studies have shown that the 16:8 diet is the most effect out of all intermittent fasting methods and is able to reduce obesity and high blood pressure.
In daily fasting, or the 16:8 diet, people eat whatever they like for 8 hours and fast for the remaining 16. On average, when compared with the control trial, those on the 16:8 diet consumed 350 fewer calories, lost 3 percent of their weight, and had lower blood pressure.
This is what the researchers had to say about the discovery:
“The take-home message from this study is that there are options for weight loss that do not include calorie counting or eliminating certain foods. The 16:8 diet is another tool for weight loss that we now have preliminary scientific evidence to support. When it comes to weight loss, people need to find what works for them because even small amounts of success can lead to improvements in metabolic health.”
