New Delhi: Weight loss will be followed by a diet at regular intervals. This weight loss remedy has been around for a long time. It was also effective. But new research from China suggests new findings. Consequently, a calorie-controlled diet or a small diet done at regular intervals are equally effective for weight loss and weight management.
The study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, found the results of experiments on 139 obese people in the Chinese city of Guangzhou. The experiment consisted of two groups of obese individuals. The experiment was conducted on them throughout the year. In one group, men received 1,500 to 1,800 calories per day, while women received 1,200 to 1,500 calories. The second group of individuals was fed the same amount of calories. However, they told him to finish at eight in the morning until four in the afternoon. They were also asked to keep records and photograph all the diets they ate.
Over the course of the year, the average weight loss in both groups was found to be 6.4 to 8.2 kg. There was no significant difference in weight between individuals in the regular diet group and those in the calorie-controlled diet group. No other symptoms, such as a decrease in waist circumference or a difference in body mass index, were found. There were also no significant changes in risk factors such as loss of body fat, metabolic insulin levels, or blood pressure.
According to dietitians, controlling calorie intake is effective for weight loss and weight management. However, new research has found that eating small meals at regular intervals and then fasting helps control metabolism. Hormonal imbalance is also well maintained. Diabetes can be controlled. He also thinks more experiments are needed on a large scale and for people of different ages to realize the long-term benefits of short-term eating for weight control.
