Previously, I have reported on many of the potential benefits of intermittent fasting. This includes:

In animal models, we see the following potential benefits:
Extend the useful life, improve health
better control of insulin, reduction of nerve cell injury
lower risk of diabetes, heart disease, certain types of cancer
Improved immune system

In several studies in humans, we see the following potential benefits
asthma, inflammatory markers
reduce heart rate, blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides
Alzheimer's, Parkinson's
reduce inflammatory markers
risk of diabetes (in people at risk)
increase human growth hormone

Unfortunately, these are mainly performed in animal models or very, very limited human studies and the ability to draw definitive conclusions is very limited.

The authors of this study sought to evaluate the clinical evidence that intermittent fasting is beneficial in clinically relevant outcomes, such as weight, cholesterol, diabetes, coronary heart disease, etc.
