This Funzing Experience:
If you haven’t tried it yourself, you probably know someone who has. In the span of just a few years, intermittent fasting has become incredibly popular. Whether it’s the 5:2 diet, one meal per day, or another unconventional pattern, a huge number of people are trying to lose weight and improve their health by structuring their eating in unconventional ways.

But is there actually any science to suggest that intermittent fasting is beneficial? Or is it just the latest fad?

Come meet neuroscientist Nick Lesica, and discover the experiments that have taught us about how the body and brain respond to different eating patterns. He will cover topics such as daily (circadian) rhythms, metabolism and fasting, and habit formation, leaving you with a clear understanding of the key factors that determine the success of intermittent fasting – or any other eating pattern.
