Alternating diets to boost weight loss

In a new study from the University of Toronto, researchers found nearly 80% of participants lost a “clinically significant” amount of body weight in less than two years after following three successive and varying diets.

The dieters followed, in sequence, a calorie-restrictive diet, a low-carb/high-fat diet and an intermittent fasting diet, losing 11.1 kilograms on average—almost 10% of their body weight.

This is important because losing just 5% of your body weight is linked to improvements in cardio-metabolic function and other health concerns.

The team says that staying on the same diet can be tough, and the study’s findings suggest there may be an alternative.

As more people attempt to shed their pandemic weight, the team says she also found that there is no right month to start your diet. Rather, it is just about getting started.

They add that the goal doesn’t have to be a very low body mass index, or BMI.
