Food for Thought: Intermittent Fasting: Pros, Cons and Why It's Not for Everyone – Drexel UniversityWeight loss
This monthly feature was written by Nutrition Sciences Services Practice Manager Kaitlin Poillon and Assistant Clinical Professor and Director of the Center for Nutrition & Performance Nyree Dardarian from Drexel’s nutrition counseling and the Department of Nutrition Services in the College of Nursing & Health Professions.
Intermittent Fasting (IF) has become an increasingly popular fad diet over the past few years. While IF may lead to results such as weight loss, increased cognition and improved overall body composition in the short-term, it is not very sustainable for many interested in making long-term lifestyle changes. There is much more research to be done on IF, especially in the human population, so it is important to get the facts straight.
The Pros of IF
The Cons of IF
Overall, it is important to discuss your diet and eating plan with an expert, preferably a Registered Dietitian, to determine what is best for your health. Sign up for a nutrition counseling session at Drexel University today by emailing NutritionAppts@drexel.edu to learn more.
