EVERY OTHER DAY MODIFIED FAST

Limiting intake to 500 calories every other day caused weight loss of 11.4 lbs in 3 months

Having people limit their calorie intake to 500 calories every other day, which is 25% of their calorie needs, and allowing them to eat as much as they wanted to on the other days, caused them to lose an average of 11.4 lbs in 3 months, dropping from an average of 169 lbs to 158 lbs, according to a study by Krista Varady, PhD from the University of Illinois in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Krista Varady, PhD has noted that their research has found that eating 25% of calories every other day (roughly 500 calories every other day) works BETTER than eating 0% of calories—eating NO calories on the “fasting” day—and better than eating 50% or 75% of calories every other day.

They have found that compliance with this type of diet—limiting intake to 500 calories per day (25% of your calorie needs)—is MUCH higher than when people are told to eat NO calories on the “fasting” day.

They have also found that eating 500 calories every other day causes most of the weight loss to be fat, and preserves muscle.

EVERY OTHER DAY MODIFIED FAST

Limiting intake to 500 calories every other day: mild headache in 2 people, constipation in one

Having people limit their calorie intake to 500 calories every other day, which is 25% of their calorie needs, and allowing them to eat as much as they wanted to on the other days, causes an average weight loss of 5-6% of body weight in 2-3 months according to studies done by Krista Varady, PhD from the University of Illinois in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

“A couple of adverse events were reported during the study,” the paper notes.

“Two subjects experienced mild headaches during week 1 of the trial, which may or may not be related to dietary treatment.

“One other subject reported constipation during week 1 and 2 of the trial. The subject was advised to consume more fruits and vegetables on feed days, and the constipation subsided by week 3 of the dietary intervention period.”

EVERY OTHER DAY MODIFIED FAST

Limiting intake to 500 calories every other day caused weight loss of 12.3 lbs in 2 months

Having obese people limit their calorie intake to 500 calories every other day, which is 25% of their calorie needs, and allowing them to eat as much as they wanted to on the other days, caused them to lose an average of 12.3 lbs in 2 months, reducing their body weight by 5.8%, dropping from an average of 213 lbs to 201 lbs, according to a study by Krista Varady, PhD from the University of Illinois in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Nearly all of the weight loss—11.9 lbs of the 12.3 lbs weight loss—was body fat.
