Improvement in coronary heart disease risk factors during an intermittent fasting/calorie restriction regimen: Relationship to adipokine modulations
(BioMed Central, 2012-10)
Background: The ability of an intermittent fasting (IF)-calorie restriction (CR) regimen (with or without liquid meals) to modulate adipokines in a way that is protective against coronary heart disease (CHD) has yet to be ...
Improvements in LDL particle size and distribution by short-term alternate day modified fasting in obese adults
(Cambridge University Press, 2011-02)
Alternate day modified fasting (ADMF) beneficially modulates several indicators of CHD risk, but its effects on LDL particle size have never been tested. Accordingly, we examined the effects of ADMF on LDL particle size ...
Dietary and physical activity adaptations to alternate day modified fasting: implications for optimal weight loss
(BioMed Central, 2010-09-03)
Background Alternate day modified fasting (ADMF) is an effective strategy for weight loss in obese adults. Objective The objective of this study was to examine the dietary and physical activity adaptations that occur ...
Comparison of effects of diet versus exercise weight loss regimens on LDL and HDL particle size in obese adults
(BioMed Central, 2011-07-18)
Background: Obesity is associated with an atherogenic lipid profile characterized by a predominance of small LDL and HDL particles. Weight loss, by dietary restriction or exercise, increases LDL particle size. Whether these ...
Intermittent fasting combined with calorie restriction is effective for weight loss and cardio-protection in obese women
(BioMed Central, 2012-11)
Background: Intermittent fasting (IF; severe restriction 1 d/week) facilitates weight loss and improves coronary heart disease (CHD) risk indicators. The degree to which weight loss can be enhanced if IF is combined with ...
