Intermittent fasting, that is, eating only over certain time period during the day can have positive mental health effects, at least according to a recent study.

Intermittent fasting for 16 hours a day, that is a 16:8 fasting paradigm, for five days a week during three months improved quality of life while decreasing the presence in blood of a cancer biomarker.

Thirty people were involved in the study. Over the study duration, the participants provided blood samples for biomarker analyses, filled out questionnaires and had their fatigue levels assessed at various time points.
