Intermittent Fasting Helpful in Chronic Disease Management: Study
A recent study by an international team of researchers found that intermittent fasting can help prevent and manage chronic disease. The results of the study were published in the journal ‘Endocrine Reviews’.
According to the study, eating calories per day in a consistent 8-10 hour window is a powerful strategy for preventing and managing chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Time-limited eating is a type of intermittent fasting that limits your food intake to a certain number of hours per day.
Intermittent fasting is one of the most popular food trends, and people use it to lose weight, improve their health, and simplify their lifestyle. “People who are trying to lose weight and lead healthier lives should be more careful about when and what they eat. Time-limited eating is an easy-to-follow diet strategy. efficient that requires less mental math than counting calories, ”said Satchidananda Panda, PhD, of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, Calif.
“Intermittent fasting can improve a person’s sleep and quality of life, as well as reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease,” Panda added. In the study, researchers explored the science behind time-limited eating, recent clinical studies, and the scope of future research to better understand its health benefits.
Recent research has revealed that genes, hormones, and metabolism go up and down at different times of the 24-hour day. Aligning our daily habits with when we eat with the body’s internal clock can optimize health and reduce the risk or burden of chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and liver disease.
“Eating at random times breaks the timing of our internal program and makes us prone to disease,” Panda said. “Intermittent fasting is a lifestyle that anyone can adopt. It can help eliminate health disparities and enables everyone to live healthy and fulfilling lives, ”concluded Panda. (ANI)
