Time-restricted feeding did NOT work in human

Post by AlbertY » Mon Sep 28, 2020 12:46 pm

I'm very upset when I saw this paper this morning. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamain ... ct/2771095

It is a randomized clinical trial that included 116 adults with overweight or obesity, time-restricted eating was associated with a modest decrease (1.17%) in weight that was not significantly different from the decrease in the control group (0.75%).

Meaning:  Time-restricted eating did not confer weight loss or cardiometabolic benefits in this study.

Well it may not help with weight loss. but it is still a healthy practise to perform fasting mimicking.

I fast 5 days a week, and i didn't lose an ounce until i started running.
Taking:
Liposomal Curcumin / Resveratrol
NMN 500mg
Melatonin 1mg (am)
Blueberry extract 1g
Berberine 250mg
Vitamin E tocotrienols 50 mg
Astragalus 500 mg
Methyl B12 5000 mcg 3x/week
Methyl Folate 1000 mcg 1-3/week

This study had a major flaw, and it is right there in latin: ad lib·i·tum
/ˌad ˈlibədəm/

adverb
  1. FORMAL•TECHNICAL
    as much or as often as necessary or desired.
So they were instructed to avoid eating during certain times, but then eat as much as they want and as often as they want during the permissible time.

In other words, they could even binge if they wanted.

I am not surprised at the outcome.

There's a lot of buzz right on intermittent fasting, its everywhere and its possible that the article could be disinformation. Im not saying it is but there's a possibility that it is because we all know fasting is good for us.

There's no need to diss the reliability of the source. :)

The rules of this study were ridiculous

Take a look at what the participants could do during 'eating times'.

It's not a reasonable way to manage calorie intake.
 
Taking:
NMN since June, 2019 (started at 250mg, 500mg as of Oct 1st)
NAD+ nasal spray since July, 2019
Resveratrol since Sept 2019
Astaxanthin 10mg since October 20th
Blueberry concentrate 500 mg since October 20th
Berberine 250 mg since October 20th

We know intermittent fasting is good for us and genetically we are engineered to miss meals
(if you don’t catch, gather or grow your food you go hungry) but also the quality of the food intake in the none fasting period has to taken into account. You can’t load up with chips 🍟 and ice cream 🍨 and expect positive results..
