  1. Abbreviation: CTR Control or no fasting
  2. Alpha diversity was calculated for both richness and evenness by the Shannon diversity index and Simpson index. Differences in Shannon and Simpson index values were determined by one-way ANOVA, followed by Tukey’s post hoc test for multiple comparisons. Data are presented as mean and standard deviation (S.D.)
