Are you following an intermittent fasting routine? When it’s time to eat, consider switching out that cheeseburger or plate of chicken parmesan for some salmon or Greek yogurt. Intermittent fasting has become more and more popular over the past few years as a weight-loss avenue. This approach is characterized by hours spent without eating, but ultimately, everyone has to fuel their body at some point.
Many have pondered about the best diet to pair with an intermittent fasting schedule, and now a new cumulative review of prior studies has an answer – at least from a cardiovascular health perspective. Just released by the American College of Cardiology, the research concludes that a Pesco-Mediterranean diet paired with intermittent fasting is “ideal for optimizing cardiovascular health.”
For reference, a Pesco-Mediterranean consists of lots of nuts, vegetables, whole grains, extra virgin olive oil, and tons of fish and other seafood as the main source of protein.
