A diet plan that involves fasting intermittent can help you lose weight in six weeks without otherwise adjusting your diet.

This is the claim that scientists are making after a new study, which as been published in the journal Cell Research which is published by Springer Nature.

Scientists Kyoung-Han Kim and Yun Hye Kim claimed that not eating over long periods of time can cause fast slimming results.

Kyoung-Han Kim said: “Intermittent fasting without a reduction in calorie intake can be a preventative and therapeutic approach against obesity and metabolic disorders.”

What is intermittent fasting?

Intermittent fasting has been shown by a number of other studies to cause weight loss.

A study by the  University of Surrey found that non-obese men who tired the diet noted a reduction in fat-mass.

The diet involves eating over some periods and fasting over others. Lots of people do this by eating after noon and stopping after 8pm.

The scientists in the study published in the journal Cell Research were only testing mince, but they claimed “benefits were already seen after only six weeks of intermittent fasting”.

The research led the experts to claim: “Up to sixteen weeks of intermittent fasting without otherwise having to count calories helps fight obesity and other metabolic disorders.”

The mice were fed for two days and not fed the following day, without any adjustment to the calories they ate.

After four months they weighed less than the mice not on the fast.

What is more, the mice also had a lower build up of fat and more brown fat, a healthier form of fat.

Another weight loss method that could help with shedding the pounds is drinking green coffee.

Green coffee extract is taken from unroasted, green coffee beans. Various weight loss supplements use green coffee as an ingredient, including Svetol.

The unroasted coffee beans are higher in chlorogenic acid, which is believed by some to be responsible to for weight loss.
