So in theory, our metabolism should already be adapted to this fasting-fiesta cycle.

Yan Chen and his co-authors at Shanghai Institute of Nutrition and Health in Chinese Academy of Sciences looked at the effect of intermittent fasting on both type 1 and type 2 diabetic mice. The type 2 diabetic mice were genetically modified in a way so they were lack of receptors for a key satiety hormone, leptin, to prevent them from overeating.

The two diets were then alternated every 7 days. The intervention went on for 8 weeks in total. The results showed reduced level of fasting glucose, improved glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetic mice.

This result suggests that intermittent fasting has the potential to reset the glucose metabolism. If you google fasting online, you get all sorts of terms — intermittent fasting, prolong fasting, whole-day fasting, water fasting, fast-mimicking diet… There are a lot of them, mirroring the various efforts to find a practically sustainable fasting style.
Therefore, looking for a fasting style that is easy to stick to is of practical value. They have started further studies to see whether 2 day, 5 day or 7 day fasts, alternating with 1 week of free feeding, would have a similar effect on glucose metabolism. They will also study whether intermittent fasting has any positive effect on cancer and autoimmune diseases.
Chen is cautiously optimistic about pushing the research forward to humans. Chen was on the same fasting regimen for over 3 months, and ended up losing 5 kg, as well as ceasing to take lipid-lowering drugs. Although the results on himself were promising, he is very cautious about how to interpret this unpublished case report.
