 The fat you eat is very different from the fat your body stores. Because it takes your body a long time to digest fat, the nutrient helps keeps you full. This stops you from wolfing down extra calories (from any food source) that your body stores as fat — so eating fat can actually help you manage your weight.

It's sugar that's the new fat!

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.

Eat Better and Stress Less: It’ll Make Your Cells (and Maybe You) Live Longer | The Basic Life | Scoop.it
For the first time, researchers show how a plant-based diet, stress management and other lifestyle changes may lead to longevity.

 

It’s not quite the Fountain of Youth, but it may be the river that leads to it. In a paper published in the journal Lancet Oncology, scientists found that a small group of men who made changes in the way they ate and handled their emotional needs showed longer telomeres in their cells.

Smart Eating

Smart Eating | The Basic Life | Scoop.it

Learn to plate your food before sitting down at the dinner table. Portion control should always be considered when eating! By plating your food beforehand, you’ll learn to take the right amount of food with you to the dinner table. You won’t be tempted to eat more than you should, which can happen when you lose track of things and are tempted to just reach over and take more. Most of us are guilty of having bigger eyes than stomachs, and wanting more than what we really need. Plating your food before you sit down at the table will allow you to focus on what you have chosen to eat, and will allow you to feel confident that you have made smart dining choices.
