Ladies be careful! Intermittent fasting may affect your hormones

Intermittent fasting is one of the most sought-after dieting regimes followed by many urban fitness enthusiasts these days. Though people find it beneficial in losing weight, a recent study has found that this fasting technique has significant effects on women’s hormones.

The researchers conducted the study for eight weeks on a group of pre and post-menopausal obese women, using the "warrior diet" technique. They were divided into two groups where one followed four-six hours window each day to eat without counting calories. Whereas, the other group did not follow any dietary restrictions.

Researchers then measured the differences in hormone levels using data from blood samples from both groups. They found that besides losing 3-4 % weight, the dieting group had a noticeable dip in oxidative stress biomarkers and insulin resistance as compared to the group which did not follow the diet.
