Fasting for several days is not very appealing to most people and may not even be desirable, as it can produce some unwanted side effects in addition to benefits. Intermittent fasting however is not that difficult and can be implemented several ways without any negative effects. Research on alternate day fasting from 3 to 12 weeks has shown it to be effective for weight loss, reduction of cholesterol and triglycerides (Tinsley GM, La Bounty PM, 2015). These are, however, not the only benefits you can get from intermittent fasting. When the inflammatory cytokines IL-1, IL-6 and TNF-alpha were measured before and after 3 weeks of intermittent fasting they were all significantly lower after the fasting (Faris MA, et al. 2012). Not only that, but systolic and diastolic blood pressure, body weight and fat percentage were all significantly lower after the fasting. There are several ways to implement intermittent fasting, and if it is combined with a very healthy diet, you can get even better results.
