Researchers divided obese study volunteers mostly African-American women, without other major medical issues into three groups. I was also skeptical that this method would work. I think the scientific studies in this book are interesting but she doesn’t know all the benefits to a “clean fast” and it would be confusing to do this program.

The every-other-day diet, or intermittent fasting, calls for restricting the calories you eat several days per week, while eating what you want on your non-fast days.

Fast days are often plagued with hunger pangs, loss of energy and teenage mood swings. These undesirable side effects not only make the diet difficult to stick to, but could ruin the lives of your friends, family and colleagues. And she would know. The authority on intermittent fasting, Krista has worked on studies for more than 10 years and overseen trials on around people not to mention on a whole load of mice beforehand. She featured on Michael Mosley’s ‘ The Power Of Intermittent Fasting ‘, the BBC programme which first popularised intermittent fasting back in – and saw the subsequent release of diet plan.

Weekends are generally rather sacred, are people able to stick to the diet? I would urge anyone who tries the EODD, not to give up until they have stuck religiously to at least 3 weeks. Krista Varady, an associate professor of nutrition at the University of Illinois, the Every-Other-Day Diet will change the way you think of dieting forever. All of this is backed by plenty of research, and all of it I agree with.
