Most weight loss diets employ some form of daily calorie restriction, where successful weight loss depends on strict adherence to controlling the type and quantity of food eaten each day.

This appears to be easier for people to adhere to over longer periods of time and is an effective weight loss strategy. More importantly, fasting effectively reduces harmful visceral fat while maintaining lean body mass. “In as little as 8 weeks, studies have shown a significant drop in the levels of harmful cholesterol, triglycerides and free fatty acids in the blood of people fasting every second day. These are all substances that are known to contribute to heart disease, thrombosis, arterial disease, and strokes.” Read about the latest research on intermittent fasting in Wholly Natural Issue #8.
