Here’s how a five-day diet that mimics fasting may ‘reboot’ the body and reduce cancer risk

Here’s how a five-day diet that mimics fasting may ‘reboot’ the body and reduce cancer risk | The Basic Life | Scoop.it

Now scientists say they've developed a five-day, once-a-month diet that mimics fasting -- and is safe.

 

In the study, which was published in the journal Cell Metabolism and funded by the National Institute on Aging, participants who intermittently fasted for three months had reduced risk factors for an amazing range of issues: aging, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease. While the number of study participants was small -- only 19 who tried the diet -- the results are so promising that the University of Southern California researcher who helped develop the regimen is already talking about trying to get approval from the Food and Drug Administration so that it can be recommended for patients.

Ray & Terry have been recommending a partial fast system for years. The easiest way to get benefits? Fast from 7pm to 7am every day. There's a 12 hour fast with less effort. This ensures you aren't spiking blood sugar at bedtime or interrupting sleep with digestive processes.

New study finds that yoga can benefit aging brainsThe recent University of Illinois study involved 108 adults between the ages of 55 and 79, of whom 61 attended hatha yoga classes. The other volunteers met for the same number and length of sessions, but they engaged in stretching and toning exercises instead of yoga. At the end of the eight weeks, the yoga group was speedier and more accurate on tests of information recall, mental flexibility and task-switching than it had been before the intervention. In contrast, the stretching-and-toning group saw no significant change in cognitive performance over time.
