A new study by scientists at the Salk Institute in La Jolla, Calif., Found that metabolic disorders such as obesity can be corrected by a type of intermittent fasting, where one person burns all of their calories for one day within a 10-hour period. It is said in the new study published on Thursday Cell Metabolism . The type of intermittent fasting, called "time-limited feeding" or "TRF", not only prevented obesity in mice, but also without altering the type of food or the extent of their physical activity.
But preventing unhealthy weight gain was far from the only benefit of TRF found by researchers at the Salk Institute.
"For many of us, the day starts with a cup of coffee first thing in the morning and ends with a bedtime snack 1
"TRF restores rhythms in Feeding Lenten, Metabolism and Nutrient Signaling Pathways (and) Prevents Fatty Liver, Dyslipidemia and Glucose Intolerance in Clock-mutated Mice", Cell Metabolism paper said. "Clock mutant" mice are mice that lack the normal biological or "circadian" clock that is considered essential for the maintenance of healthy metabolism.
Mice lacking the gene that regulates the body's clock were more susceptible to diabetes, high cholesterol and fatty liver – but they limited their feeding to 10 hours. Windows "with fasting for the other 14 hours a day allowed the mice to stay healthy and with a normal weight, according to a report on the study by Newsweek .
" This was an unexpected finding, " said Panda, cited by Research & Development Magazine . "In the past, we have assumed that the circadian clock has a direct impact on maintaining a healthy metabolism, but this sets water on fire. Our research suggests that the watch's primary role is to produce daily fasting rhythms and that metabolic diseases are only a consequence of disturbed eating habits.
The researchers also found that what the mice ate was less important they ate it.Mice on a high-fat diet who got 24-hour access to food became obese, while mice did the same Diet and the same calorie intake ate, but the feeding on the 10-hour "window" limited, remained healthy and did not get fat, according to the Science Daily study summary.
