[Diabetics] Simple changes EXTENDS lifespan
If you have type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes, chances are good that your doctor is on your case about what you’re eating.
That’s a good start. Diet does play a major role in the management of the condition.
But it’s not the only factor—not by a long shot.
In fact, there’s one change you can make that can help prevent major side effects of diabetes—and can even help you live longer.
And your doctor has probably never mentioned it.
It’s not about what you’re eating, but when.
Timing is everything when it comes to your body and your health because your body runs on a 24-hour clock that follows the rhythm of the sun.
It’s called your circadian rhythm.
The reason it plays a role in diabetes risk is because there are variations in your insulin sensitivity based on this biological rhythm.
Let’s take a closer look at the study.
Researchers looked at data from over 4,500 adults with type 2 diabetes and followed them for 11 years. They used food frequency questionnaires to evaluate their eating habits and compared that to cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality.
Turns out that people who ate carb-heavy meals earlier in the day (as opposed to later in the day) were less likely to die of heart disease.
Also, people who ate more whole grains in the afternoon and evening were less likely to die of heart disease.
Slight switches in eating patterns made a big difference (like eating potatoes with breakfast instead of dinner, or eating whole grains at lunch instead of breakfast).
The reason this makes a difference is because your body’s biological clock is more insulin sensitive in the morning, and wanes throughout the day.
This confirms previous studies showing that diabetics tend to live longer if they eat larger meals earlier in the day, and smaller portions for dinner.
Most doctors don’t talk about meal timing simply because they don’t know about it.
The importance of your circadian rhythm for your health is just now starting to get the attention it deserves, but we’re still a long way away from implementing it in mainstream medical advice.
But you don’t have to wait for that slow moving machine to catch up to the science.
You can take action now that will line up your eating patterns with your body’s daily rhythms.
Whether you’re diabetic or not, this can improve your health—and possibly even your lifespan.
P.S. A recent study showed that people were able to reverse their diabetes completely on their own. Click here to find out how.
