Science Supports Benefits Of Intermittent Fasting
Feature from www.livescience.com.com –
The advice given on fighting obesity usually focuses on consuming fewer calories and exercising more.
The benefits of such foods as vegetables, fruits, nuts, fiber and fish, and the value of reducing or eliminating snacks are often also touted.
However, mounting evidence reveals that other key aspects of diet — when and how often people eat — can also play a major role in health.
Editor’s Note: This science-backed piece by Charles Q. Choi is pretty much singing to the choir.
The amazing health benefits that I and others experience from intermittent fasting show themselves in real-life so dramatically that I’m never surprised to see the science back up the huge claims.
My only issue with the article is the continuous pushing of the human “evolution” theory that so many scientists try to shoehorn into scientific facts.
Besides the false evolution theory he insists on promoting, it’s an otherwise educational article..
Here are some article highlights:
- Animal studies show that intermittent cancer can starve off cancerous tumors, reverse diabetes, fights against heart disease and promotes brain health.
- Eating breakfast in the morning is promoted as good for controlling weight, but recent evidence has suggested it might not be.
- Fasting on its own is more powerful in preventing and reversing some diseases than prescription drugs.
