The short fasting technique is becoming more and more the subject of extensive and detailed studies that document the effectiveness and determining the various applications in the medical field.
With this technique one tries to turn through a short phase of fasting the production of a particular protein, called FSP27, which favors the lipolysis preserving or increasing muscle mass.
Control of food requires a maximum of 15-18 hours and, decisive and fundamental factor, it should be implemented during the hours of sleep, basically avoiding taking the evening meal. The research on the subject, in particular those of Chaix and Vilà-Brau, confirm that its effect lasts over time and that the introduction of food in only 7-9 hours of daytime activity may be responsible for the overall adjustment against many metabolic problems that plague today’s industrialized world, from hypercholesterolemia to diabetes, to the metabolic syndrome.
Simply just two days short of fasting per week to maintain a balancing effect on the metabolism of fats and sugars in the other days of the week. This innovative principle is based on evident based medicine  that will drive clinical research on food signals even in next years.
The scheme is implemented in 2 or 3 non-consecutive days a week where food day will include a free breakfast calorically, which follows a less rich breakfast-lunch, and finally, from the 3 p.m. or the 4 p.m. you stop eating until the morning the following day.  That by keeping at least 15 hours and up to 18 hours of fasting before renege, even abundantly, at the time of the day metabolically more suitable, that is the next morning.
Such a restricted diet setting over time, indicating that food intake only in the hours of daytime activities and requires a short fast in the hours following, facilitates the restoration of primitive metabolic structure and helps prevent obesity and a number of metabolic disorders even when other days there is improper food intake. This should certainly not be allowed to lead to flank the short fast of supply unbalanced days, but it can help protect the body against the effects of occasional bad nutrition.
The practice of 2 or 3 days of short fasting accompanied by proper nutritional approach on other days of the week has scientific bases that are proving increasingly solid and allow to deepen the study of signals and metabolic messages as well as to obtain clinically relevant results.
