What a wonderful time of year…
You just can’t beat the family, friends, great football to watch, and huddling around a warm fireplace.
But it’s also the time when turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry dressing, marshmallow-covered sweet potatoes, and all of those delicious desserts are thrown in your face.
And if you’re like me, you may keep munching on those leftovers for days to come…
Knowing all too well how bad that sugar is for your diabetes.
But this year, you can make a change that’ll let you:
- Keep eating those delicious Thanksgiving foods; and
- STILL keep your diabetes—and overall health—in check!
Just give THIS short-term diet a try…
Send high blood sugar packing
New research reveals how fasting—refraining from food for a short period of time—can be a POWERFUL natural treatment for managing your disease.
Intermittent fasting, also known as time-restricted eating, is a simple and easy way to manage your blood sugar levels – and make food your servant instead of the opposite.
Several studies have proven its health benefits for weight loss and insulin sensitivity.
And now a new study is highlighting how it can improve glycemic control – your levels of blood sugar – for diabetes sufferers.
Researchers gathered 15 participants with an average BMI of 33.9 – a value which indicates obesity.
The participants wore glucose monitors and accelerometers to measure activity and sleep patterns. They also wrote down all the food and drinks they consumed.
Then individuals were split into two groups for two weeks:
- Nine-hour time-restricted feeding early – 8am to 5pm.
- Or delayed – 12pm to 9pm.
The participants continued their usual daily activities and made NO changes to their diet during the study – but were instructed to ONLY eat during their time-restricted hours.
In the end, researchers found VERY promising results…
Intermittent fasting improved high blood sugar levels – which suggests it can also reduce insulin dependence.
And the best part? Whether participants ate in the morning or late afternoon didn’t make a difference!
Time-restricted fasting has been found to not only improve the lives of diabetes sufferers, but it can also:
- Boost brain health
- Lower your risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
- Reduce your risk of obesity
Talk to your doctor before starting intermitting fasting, and see if it would be right for you.
