Studies are increasing day by day about the idea of ​​diets that depend on stopping food for a long time or what is known as intermittent fasting, which is very popular among people, especially among celebrities.

A recent study revealed that eating less food leads to better health and longevity than eating “little food,” according to research conducted on rodents.

Researchers who studied mice who were placed on a special diet found that those that ate food once a day lived longer than those that ate the same calories but several times throughout the day, according to Agence France-Presse.

The study, which was published in the journal Nature Metabolism a few days ago, also showed that mice that ate only once a day had an improved metabolism.

Fasting for 21 hours

Commenting on the findings, researcher and study leader Dudley Laming of the University of Wisconsin said that scientists have known for nearly a century that calorie restriction extends the life of rodents. But previous studies in mice have focused on inadvertent fasting in mice that usually only feed once a day.

In the framework of the research, the amount of calories in two other groups was reduced by 30%, and one of them was allowed to have low-calorie food throughout the day, and the other got 30% less than normal food but in the form of one meal, to enter into a state of fasting for a period 21 hours.

After observation, mice on a calorie-restricted diet and fasting for 21 hours lived almost half a year longer than mice that ate as much as they wanted at any time of the day.

shorter life

On the other hand, mice with constant access to a reduced-calorie diet lived slightly shorter lives than the other group, although they ultimately consumed fewer calories.

Another group of rodents was tested to eat a similar amount of food as the control group, but for only three hours, followed by a long daily fast.

The last group of mice, which was silent without limiting their calories, showed exactly the same health benefits as the group that ate fewer calories and was silent.

“Both groups were better able to regulate blood sugar levels and better adapt metabolism to the different demands of the day,” Laming commented.

number of calories

He also explained that while short-term studies in humans confirm that restricting food intake to 4 to 8 hours per day “appears to have some benefits”, the long-term results are not yet known.

“We still don’t know the best time of day to fast, and people may respond differently to fasting or time-restricted feeding,” he added.

One of the early conclusions of this study is that people who already cut their daily calorie intake by 20% or 30% may need to rethink their time frame for their meals.

Commenting on this, Laming said that if his findings apply to humans, it means that they have lost some (believable) benefits of calorie-restriction regimes by spreading out their meals throughout the day.
