    The OP has poor communication skills. However, this thread has been a goldmine.

    They did a lot of testing on the presenter prior to him starting IF during and after and there were some very interesting results in his blood tests. it was a year ago so I can't remember specifics. I do remember thinking at the time that it was surprising the effect IF had in a relatively short space of time.

    The presenter did agree that the benefits he had seen in his blood markers were unproven. But interesting results never the less. perhaps it can be put down to him losing nearly a stone rather than the way he lost it. As he says below more human studies would be needed to prove or disprove that IF was responsible.

    Michael Mosley the presenter says "I stuck to this diet for 5 weeks, during which time I lost nearly a stone and my blood markers, like IGF-1, glucose and cholesterol, improved. If I can sustain that, it will greatly reduce my risk of contracting age-related diseases like cancer and diabetes.

    Current medical opinion is that the benefits of fasting are unproven and until there are more human studies it's better to eat at least 2000 calories a day. If you really want to fast then you should do it in a proper clinic or under medical supervision, because there are many people, such as pregnant women or diabetics on medication, for whom it could be dangerous."

    These results mean nothing until you compare them with the exact same food spaced throughout the day in normal meal patterns. And then you have to do this with a large group of people.

    There was a very interesting documentary on BBC Horizon called Eat Fast Live Longer 2012 The presenter tried various fasting diets and was monitored on each and they found there were significant health benefits to intermittent fasting. He was not badly overweight just a bit of a paunch but he did have a higher percentage of visceral fat than he should have. This had reduced by the end of the experiment. He ended up continuing the 2 day a week fast because the medical evidence that his health had improved was so overwhelming.

    Worth a watch.

    Personally I find it very difficult to maintain. Just the thought of not eating for more than about 6 hours makes me weak with hunger.

    There could be something more recent that I have missed, but as far as I am aware, there is no clear evidence of health benefits of 5:2 outside that of normal calorie restriction.

    No, this is exactly what I was talking about in my post.
