Research suggests intermittent fasting (IF) may help with weight loss and metabolic health. The link between intermittent fasting and chronic unfavorable weight gain varies on lifestyle, individual reactions, and technique.
Weight loss with intermittent fasting requires a calorie deficit. Weight gain may occur if people overeat during eating windows or to compensate for fasting.
Food choices during eating windows matter. If intermittent fasting promotes nutrient-dense, whole foods, it may help manage weight.
Some people compensate by eating more or eating unhealthy things during meal windows after fasting. Intermittent fasting may be negated by this behavior.
Intermittent fasting may boost fat burning by changing metabolism and hormones. However, some persons may undergo compensatory metabolic or hormonal changes that impact weight regulation.
Intermittent fasting works better with exercise. Weight control may be limited if fasting is sedentary and exercise is not done.
Some people lose weight with intermittent fasting, but maintaining healthy eating and lifestyle behaviors is necessary for long-term success.
Healthcare professionals or licensed dietitians can help establish the best diet for individual health objectives, tastes, and considerations.
