  • A Study of the Effects of Intermittent Fasting on Energy, Hormones, Body Composition, and Performance in Male Runners

    “The study team hopes to learn more about how restricted eating affects performance in competitive male runners.”

    open to eligible males ages 20-40

    This is a cross-over intervention study designed to evaluate how four weeks of time restricted feeding (16 hours fasting and 8 hours feeding), compared to four weeks of a more traditional eating pattern (12 hours fasting and 12 hours feeding), affects resting energy expenditure, subjective and biochemical markers of satiety and hunger, body composition, cardiovascular health, substrate utilization and fitness in male competitive runners.
