Default A Time to Fast--Science Magazine

Nice review of the current state of studies on different types of fasting for health from Science magazine last fall: A Time to Fast. Basically, they conclude that there are some positive results with every style (time-restricted eating, IF, fasting-mimicking diets, and even traditional calorie restriction):
Dietary interventions that are accompanied by long fasting periods have emerged as promising strategies to target a myriad of clinical parameters that constitute the foundation for metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and even neurodegenerative diseases.

Some of it's a bit over my non-scientific-head, but the graphics--especially the first and fourth--do a nice job of summarizing the variations and the long list of health benefits.
