1 Values reported as mean ± SEM. IFCR-L: IFCR-L: Intermittent fasting calorie restriction-liquid diet (n = 28); IFCR-F: Intermittent fasting calorie restriction-food based diet (n = 26).

2 Change expressed as the difference between week 3 and week 10 absolute values.

3 Week 3 values significantly (P < 0.05) different from week 10 values within group (Repeated-measures ANOVA).

No significant difference between groups for any nutrient except energy.
