Defeat Diabetes (and More!) WITHOUT Sacrificing Foods
You know by now that I practice what I preach.
So, when I tell you about foods you should (or shouldn’t) be eating, or the best programs for maintaining a healthy weight, or how active you should be… know that I’m doing those healthy habits right along with you.
I’ve been practicing one particular lifestyle for years now — and the science proving its benefits keep mounting.
In fact, I just came across a remarkable study showing that this method could help protect against three major life-threatening issues:
- fatty liver disease,
- diabetes, and
- dying from sepsis.
And the good news is, it DOESN’T involve changing your diet.
The researchers fed a high-fat, high-sugar diet to mice in two age groups (the equivalent of 20- and 42-year-old humans).
But they restricted their eating to nine hours per day.
This is called time-restricted eating, or intermittent fasting.
Remember, these mice were fed an unhealthy diet – the equivalent of a typical “Western” diet.
Now, the time-restricted eating didn’t prevent weight gain, but it did help protect against many of the negative effects on your body that weight gain can cause.
For example, the researchers found that time-restricted eating strongly protected against fatty liver disease, a dangerous condition that impacts millions of Americans.
It was also associated with a lower increase in blood glucose and a faster return to normal blood sugar levels in the males, and improvement in glucose tolerance in the females.
And compared to the control group, which had food available at all times, those in the time-restricted eating group restored their blood sugar levels more efficiently.
What does this mean for you?
It means that time-restricted eating has the potential to prevent or treat type 2 diabetes — possibly without making radical changes to your diet.
This doesn’t mean I support sugary, processed, fried junk food… but it does show you just how powerful eating in a narrow window of time can be.
But that’s not all.
This study also showed that time-restricted eating prevented the mice from sepsis-induced death.
Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that results when your body has an extreme response to infection.
But wait, there’s more!
This study ALSO showed that the males that practiced time-restricted eating were able to preserve muscle mass and improve muscle performance — something that could be critical for older individuals at risk of muscle atrophy, falls, and fractures.
When it comes to time-restricted eating, it’s ALL benefits and ZERO drawbacks.
Big Pharma certainly can’t say that about any of their drugs!
I personally have been practicing intermittent fasting for decades, and I can personally vouch for its fat-burning, energy-boosting, disease-fighting benefits.
If you want to try it for yourself, start with a 12-hour window without any food once a week. 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.
