The Caveman Cure for Diabetes
Isn’t it amazing?
We have all of these modern drugs… and all of this state-of-the-art technology.
And we’re still fatter and sicker than ever.
So much for “progress,” right?
Well, instead of looking into the future for cures, every now and then it helps to look into the past.
And, believe it or not, there’s an ancient practice that’s now been proven to help reverse type 2 diabetes!
This diabetes cure is so powerful I recommend it to my own patients. And it comes to us straight from our caveman ancestors.
This ancient practice is called intermittent fasting.
Rather than traditional fasting, which can span for days (and which I’d NEVER ask you to do), intermittent fasting lasts for about 12-16 hours.
So you just get all of your eating for a day accomplished within an 8-12 hour window.
Which, if you think about it, is pretty much how our caveman ancestors ate for thousands of years, before refrigerators and other modern conveniences made food available 24 hours a day.
Pretty doable, right?
Researchers recently tested intermittent fasting on a group of mice, and what they found was incredible.
Most notably, the mice lost more weight and had more stable insulin and glucose systems—all factors that are critical for patients living with diabetes (or for those trying to prevent it).
The reason for these benefits was that the intermittent fasting helped convert white adipose fat into browner fat. In other words, it converted unhealthy fats into energy-burning ones.
If you thought all fat was equal, think again!
White fat is associated with the development of type 2 diabetes, while brown fat helps improve insulin sensitivity. Brown fat takes energy to create, which stimulates energy-burning in the cells. Also, when white fat is browned, it helps to regulate thermogenic activity, a process that supports the body’s metabolism.
In fact, the reason why exercise and exposure to cold burn calories is because they trigger the browning of white adipose fat.
This study was conducted in mice, but its benefits in humans are extremely well documented.
But don’t just take it from the pages of a science journal…take it from me.
I’ve been practicing intermittent fasting for decades, and I can personally vouch for its fat-burning, energy-boosting, disease-fighting benefits.
And lots of my patients have seen incredible results, too.
If you want to try it for yourself, start with a 12-hour window without any food once a week, and over time, build up to a 16-hour window.
You’ll be surprised at how easy it is—and you’ll be amazed at how much better you’ll feel.
To a brighter day,
