    Default Could Intermittent Fasting Reduce Breast Cancer Risk In Obesity?

    New research finds that time-restricted feeding improves insulin levels and reduces tumor growth in mice with obesity-driven postmenopausal breast cancer

    The study found that tumor growth was driven and accelerated by elevated insulin levels in the mice.

    It also found that lowering the mice’s insulin levels and improving their metabolic health had an anti-tumor effect.
    “Time-restricted eating has a positive effect on metabolic health and does not trigger the hunger and irritability that is associated with long-term fasting or calorie restriction,” says Dr. Manasi Das, postdoctoral fellow at the University of California (UC), San Diego and first author.

    I've been practicing intermittent fasting for years. I break my fast between noon and 1 PM and eat the second meal of the day around 6-6:30. The object is to limit your consumption to roughly a 6-hour period. I don't feel at all hungry until mid-day and I have plenty of energy. At the same time, my blood glucose is controlled, as is my calorie intake. This schedule clearly doesn't work for everyone, but I am comfortable with it and in the best of health.
