Does fasting on alternate days work? A new study weighs in


( CNN) Whether you watch what you eat by counting your daily calories or practising intermittent fasting, either approach can be effective for weight loss, a new obesity learn recommends.

Intermittent or alternate-day fasting necessitates routinely alternating between feeing little or no food and then banquet in your daily diet. It has become a developing weight loss tendency in the US, the UK and other regions around the world.

The small learn, published in the periodical JAMA Internal Medicine on Monday, suggests that there is no significant difference between fasting and the other popular weight loss strategy of simply restricting how many daily calories you consume.
