More Intermittent Fasting Research

It is probably obvious from this blog that I find the whole area of diet, exercise, fitness etc absolutely fascinating and reading and researching this material is a great pleasure. I'm always on the lookout for new information on these things that interest me and one of the areas of my particular interest is intermittent fasting. I recently came across another blog - Spartan Training / the way is in training - which has - among the workout records of its author a couple of interesting articles on IF.

The two blog posts are:
These are two really well thought out and well written posts that will repay some study.

The first does some thinking - based on several studies - about the similarities and differences between IF and CR and the various mechanisms that are at play.

The second looks at a study which suggests the idea that long-term intermittent fasting can lead to improved cognitive function - fasted mice exhibited improved learning and memory compared to controls.

Anyway good stuff and I like how the author throws studies like this in among his Crossfit style training records!
