    Time restricted eating doesn't work

    I've been thinking about dong intermittent fasting because I've heard good things, but according to a new study lead by researchers from the University of San Francisco, intermittent fasting - separated by 16 hours of fasting - is not effective on its own to either lose weight or improving metabolism. I found this interesting, because I had always heard that intermittent fasting is good for the body and weight loss. What does everyone else think about this? Here's the link to the study if you're curious to learn more: https://www.ucsf.edu/news/2020/09/41...rk-weight-loss

    I likewise imagine that irregular fasting is presumably useful for you when joined with legitimate eating and exercise. That is to say, how might anybody feel that simply doing one change will have a significant effect, particularly in case you're not controlling what you eat and you're simply lounging around like a knot on a log

    Very true. I didn't think of it that way, but you're right. The study doesn't really talk about what the participants did...if they weren't doing anything but fasting, I fail to see how this is a good study...

That said, I don't really find this study surprising...I mean, honestly, your sugar levels, energy levels and how much fat you burn or the weight you keep off doesn't have much to do with fasting. It's what you're eating, if you're exercising, how much sleep your getting, etc., too. All that plays a role in health, wellness, weight loss and weight maintenance.
    That's kind of what I was thinking. I mean, I don't find it surprising that fasting on it's own isn't amazing for health and weight loss, it's all the other stuff you're doing combined that would indicate how well it works. Seriously, does doing any one thing lead to amazing weight loss results? Even dieting only takes you so far. I mean, yeah, you'll lose pounds, but you won't get toned or lose the flabby skin...that takes exercising to build muscle, etc.
