A problem with many of these studies is the comparison of apples and oranges.

Recently there has been a lot of press indicating the use of Intermittent Fasting (IF) actually provides no benefit to the body.
A recent study concluded that many of the benefits seen in animal studies don't really hold up in human studies and that the benefits may very minor.
"A problem with many of these studies is the comparison of apples and oranges" says Dr. Alan Jenks, founder of iHealthology.com.
"It is very difficult to compare conclusions of animals and humans but there is also a problem in comparing people eating an average American diet and individuals who eat a healthy diet," remarks Dr. Alan.
10,000 years ago Intermittent Fasting was probably part of a normal weekly routine as food was difficult to find and we also ate a much more healthy fresh diet.
