Meal Times, Intermittent Fasting, and Caloric Restriction | The Paleo DietMeal Times, Intermittent Fasting, and Caloric Restriction Excerpt

Let’s get back to the crux of the matter – can how many meals you eat influence your total caloric intake? During the fasting month of Ramadan Muslims abstain from food and drink from dawn until sunset. Numerous studies demonstrate that this dietary pattern causes a spontaneous reduction in the caloric intake and a slight weight loss. To date, no clinical studies have examined how a single large evening meal influences weight over the long term – say 6 months or longer. The consumption of a single daily meal is a form of intermittent fasting which in animal models causes them to spontaneously reduce their caloric intake by 30%. Additionally, intermittent fasting reduces blood pressure, improves insulin sensitivity, improves kidney function, and increases resistance to disease and cancer.
