The study suggests that intermittent fasting can be a useful tool for managing type 2 diabetes, as it can help reduce calorie intake and improve blood sugar control. However, more research is needed to determine the long-term effects of this approach and how it compares to other weight loss strategies. It is important for individuals with diabetes to work with their healthcare provider to develop a personalized plan that meets their specific needs and goals.
Intermittent fasting is an effective way to lose weight for people with type 2 diabetes, according to new research. The study, presented at the annual conference of the American Society of Nutrition, found that patients who ate only between noon and 8pm each day lost around 4.3% of their body weight after six months. This was compared to a loss of 2.5% for those who reduced their calorie intake by 25%. The results showed no significant difference between the two groups, but the authors suggested that intermittent fasting may be easier to follow than calorie restriction diets.
