With high-profile devotees like Jennifer Aniston and Jimmy Kimmel singing its praises, Intermittent fasting may be the latest weight loss craze, but it is more than just a diet trend. Intermittent fasting alternates between periods of eating and periods of fasting, with each one lasting a predetermined amount of time. It is a style of eating that many doctors now prescribe for their patients for its wide-ranging impact on the function of cells, hormones, and genes.
