Prevent Diabetes With Intermittent Fasting

By and Tuesday, 06 August 2019 12:11 PM Current | Bio | Archive

On July 6, Zion Williamson, basketball's newest No. 1 draft pick, began his career with the New Orleans Pelicans in an NBA Las Vegas Summer League game.

Williamson rattled the rim with 11 points in the first nine minutes, but then was benched by a knee “tweak” that kept him from playing a full game.

But, in fact, there was no full game. That’s because about eight minutes before the final buzzer, an earthquake measuring 7.1 on the Richter scale rattled the arena.

Talk about an interruptions.

When it comes to sports, interruptions can ruin a player's rhythm. But when it comes to reversing prediabetes and preventing Type 2 diabetes, intermittent interruptions may be a benefit.

A lab study published in the journal Metabolism found that obesity can lead to fatty pancreas disease — the accumulation of fat cells around the insulin-producing beta cells in that organ. That causes the beta cells to crank out excess insulin until they become exhausted.

Then, without sufficient insulin, you end up with out-of-control blood glucose levels, and eventually diabetes.

Want to avoid that? The researchers found that intermittent fasting prevents accumulation of fat in the pancreas and maintains beta cells' function.

The smart move to beat diabetes is to eat most of your calories (70% to 80%) before 3 p.m., and have your last food before sunset.

Then, wait 13 to 16 hours to eat again (you can drink water, unsweetened tea, and black coffee).

That will help keep you from getting benched by diabetes and its complications.
