Water fasting reduces weight in a hurry, but it puts a bad effect on health
Water Fasting: According to the research of ‘Chicago Illinois University’, water fasting reduces weight rapidly. But it is not effective for long. The researcher of this university has also claimed that water fasting is beneficial for a few days. But if you are doing it to reduce obesity then it is not good for long term. One good thing about this fasting is that it cures minor ailments related to stomach and digestion. Also, to some extent, water fasting is effective in controlling blood pressure and cholesterol.
Calories are reduced in a hurry
However, it does not have any special effect on those people who do this kind of water fasting or fasting every day. There are many people who do low calorie or fast one day in a week. Christa Vardi, professor of kinesiology and nutrition, who led the entire research. This complete research of him and his team has been published in a Nutrition Critic magazine. According to Vardi, an expert on intermittent fasting, you can try it once. This is a very useful thing, as well as after trying it, the problems related to digestion of the stomach go away.
However, he stresses that no one should do any of these fasts for more than five days without medical supervision. The new study is a review of eight studies on water fasting or Buchinger fasting. A medically supervised fasting popular in Europe where people consume only small amounts of juice and soup during the day.
Researchers found that fasting helps in weight loss for some time. Those who fasted for five days lost about 4 percent to 6 percent of their weight. Those who fasted for seven to 10 days. They lost about 2 percent to 10 percent weight and those who fasted for 15 to 20 days. He lost 7 percent to 10 percent weight.
However, people who lost the weight during five days of water fasting regained it within three months. Some studies and research included participants with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Those who fasted had no ill effects, although they were closely monitored and given their insulin dose during the fast. These long fasts also have side effects, such as headache, insomnia and hunger, Vardi said. Things like metabolic acidosis or death did not happen in the study. Vardi said that people who participated in these long fasts lost weight. Fat decreased as compared to muscle.
