Alternate a healthy diet fasting is good for body and mind
the ROME - there Are several health benefits of fasting intermittently', which can be of two types: one in which you consume all the meals in the span of 6-8 hours per day while fasting for the other 18-16 hours; or the so-called fasting intermittent 5:2 where we are limited to only one meal a day for two days a week and a normal diet for the remaining 5 days. Is the verdict made known on The New England Journal of Medicine, by neuroscientist Mark Mattson Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, who has reviewed a vast amount of studies conducted on the topic over the last 25 years.

"fasting intermittently - supports Mattson - could be part of a healthy lifestyle". The work has emerged that may change the risk factors of obesity and diabetes, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, glucose levels and inflammation. For example, four studies on animal models and people have shown that fasting intermittently, in addition to reducing the blood pressure, and improve the values of fat (cholesterol and triglycerides) in plasma, also reduces the heart rate at rest.

in Addition, continuous Mattson, two studies conducted at the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust on 100 overweight women showed that those who took the fasting 2 days out of 7 (5:2) have lost as much weight as women who followed a low-calorie diet, and showed the best values of insulin and fats in their blood compared to women a strict diet.

And yet, according to Mattson preliminary studies suggest that fasting intermittently may also be good for the health of the brain. Although they serve more research to demonstrate the positive effects of fasting intermittently on learning and memory, concludes Mattson, in the future you will be able to get to new intervention strategies to counter neurodegeneration and dementia based on the fast and develop a drug that 'mimics fasting with the same effect of fasting on the body and mind.
