Can This Diet STOP Cancer and Diabetes?
A lot of people think that in order to avoid diseases like cancer or diabetes you have to be some kind of health nut.
The kind that likes to drink kale and ginger smoothies—and never eat cake again.
Hey, if that sounds good to you, go for it.
If not, I’ve got good news for you.
There’s a key way to help avoid cancer and diabetes—and it has nothing to do with WHAT you eat.
I used to get funny looks when I told people that when they ate was as important as what they ate.
Research on the significance of your body’s internal clocks—your circadian rhythm—is pouring in these days.
Many of these studies have shown that when your circadian rhythm is disrupted, it can contribute to cancer and metabolic syndrome.
However, fasting for 14 hours has been shown to “reset” these clocks.
For this particular study, the participants ate breakfast before dawn, fasted all day, and then ate dinner after the sun had set.
For their meals, they ate whatever they wanted.
After 30 days, important proteins were “turned on” that help regulate things like:
- Glucose metabolism
- Lipid metabolism
- Insulin signaling
- Circadian clocks
- DNA repair
- Immune system
- Cognitive functioning
Fasting also resulted in cellular protection against:
- Metabolic syndrome
- Alzheimer’s disease
For example, LATS1 is a tumor-suppressor protein that helps suppress the growth and spread of numerous tumors.
LATS1 was increased by NINE-FOLD after just four weeks of intermittent fasting.
Other anti-cancer genes and proteins were also increased.
These are the inner workings of your body that help to fight cancer day-in and day-out.
The bottom line is that intermittent fasting can help reset your body’s circadian clocks—which has the benefit of suppressing both cancer and metabolic diseases.
I’m a big fan of intermittent fasting. I was doing it long before it started to become so mainstream.
Unlike traditional fasting, which involves going multiple days without eating, intermittent fasting involves fasting for a period of time each day… say, from sundown to sunup.
Or from dinner until breakfast.
Or dinner until lunch the next day.
It’s a simple way to make a big difference in your overall health.

Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the US. Besides obvious risks—like lung cancer and COPD—smoking also increases your risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, numerous types of cancer, osteoporosis, cataracts, and more.

Triple-negative, HER2 positive breast cancers are especially aggressive and have limited treatment options. This type of cancer is more likely to have already spread by the time it’s found. And it’s also more likely to return after treatment. That’s why researchers are leaving no stone unturned in the search for a cure for this nasty...
Did you know that mental stress can take a toll on your heart? Long-term stress leads to high levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which increases blood cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar, and blood pressure. It can also cause plaque to build up inside of your arteries… which leads to hardening of the arteries… which increases...
