Abstract

This thesis proves the hypothesis that a low-calorie diet combined with intermittent fasting can reduce the negative energy balance associated with weight loss is false. "This is partly due to a compensatory reduction in resting energy expenditure (REE), adaptive thermogenesis, that occurs during weight loss... Of note, intermittent fasting was associated with a two-fold greater reduction in fat mass compared to continuous daily restriction."
