[Warning] The WRONG Way to Avoid Diabetes
If you’re trying to avoid diabetes, chances are you’re watching what you eat pretty closely.
But what if you’ve been given bad advice?
What if you’re going about diabetes prevention all wrong?
According to a recent study, watching what you eat is only part of the equation… and it’s not even the most important part.
Here’s what you should be focusing on instead.
In the first study of its kind, researchers investigated whether whenyou eat could be as important for your health as whatyou eat.
You might be surprised by the answer.
Over a 10-week period, one group of people ate meals within a six-hour window (from about 8:30 am-2:30 pm), while another group ate within a typical 12-hour period.
After just 10 weeks, three major benefits were seen in the six-hour group:
- Increased insulin sensitivity, which means better blood sugar control — and a reduced risk of diabetes
- Major blood pressure improvements
- Reduced appetite
Even though the one group only ate for six hours out of the day, they still ate enough to maintain their weight — which means that none of these benefits came from weight loss.
In other words, these benefits came directly from WHEN the groups were eating, as opposed to WHAT.
This might be the first study of its kind, but it’s not surprising to me.
Eating earlier in the day aligns your body more with your circadian rhythm. And eating later in the day isn’t good for your metabolism.
We also know that it’s easier to keep blood sugar under control in the morning than in the evening.
Eating for six hours a day also means that you’ll be fasting for about 18 hours a day. I routinely do this a few times a week. It’s called intermittent fasting.
Studies show that intermittent fasting can help burn fat, fight diabetes, boost brain function, and supercharge your body’s energy supplies.
Eating for such a short period of the day might sound impossible… but remember, part of the benefit is that it actually makes you LESS hungry!
Take it from me, it’s surprisingly simple…and it gets even easier the longer you do it.
To a brighter day,
