Intermittent fasting: what is it and how does it work?

Intermittent fasting is a style of eating where you consume food for a specific period of time and not eat at others. Depending on the type of intermittent fasting you choose, these periods can range from fasting several hours a day to fasting every other day of the week.

As a way to promote weight loss, intermittent fasting often works by putting you in a calorie deficit, but many people do it for other related health benefits. When the body goes into ‘starvation’ mode for a brief period, due to low glucose levels, it then initiates a homeostatic process known as autophagy, which can be beneficial in preventing disease.
