TomBAvoider Posted May 20, 2018 Report Share Posted May 20, 2018 Caveat, this study was done in rats, but there is interest in exploring this in humans: https://medicalxpress.com/news/2018-05-intermittent-fasting-diets-diabetes.html "Ana Bonassa comments, "This is the first study to show that, despite weight loss, intermittent fasting diets may actually damage the pancreas and affect insulin function in normal healthy individuals, which could lead to diabetes and serious health issues." The researchers now plan to investigate how this diet impairs pancreas and insulin function. There are many conflicting reports on the benefits and disadvantages, and many different types of intermittent fasting diets. Although these data were obtained in normal weight rats with positive effects on weight gain and food intake, the results suggest that in the long-term harm may be caused and that more investigation is needed to assess how people may be affected, particularly those with existing metabolic issues."
