The credibility of intermittent fasting as a dietary approach has come under scrutiny as scientists warn that this trendy diet might be a fast track to diabetes.

    A comprehensive study conducted by researchers in Paris, which tracked over 100,000 individuals, revealed that those who practiced prolonged fasting during the day faced a higher risk of developing diabetes compared to those who followed a more frequent eating pattern with five meals per day.

    The study’s findings also indicated that individuals who skipped their early morning breakfast had an elevated likelihood of requiring lifelong insulin shots to manage their diabetes.
