Interesting study on mice

Hi, all --

I've been reading along but not posting much in the last few months. But I ran across this study:

Google: diabetesincontrol How Extended Fasting, Timed Meals Fight Obesity

It suggests that timed meals and short fasts help fight obesity. It's done on mice, so it's application to humans is limited, but it supports the JUDDD hypothesis.

Sorry if someone already posted it!

What the study found – in mice – is that eating throughout the day disturbs nutrient sensors and disrupts metabolic pathways.

When mice studied were limited to regularly timed meals during an 8 hour period, researchers found it boosted liver enzymes that promote brown fat -- the good kind -- that helps keep blood sugar levels normal. They also found that eating makes the body store fat, but within a few hours of fasting, fat-burning starts and cholesterol is broken down. Eating frequently throughout the day doesn't seem to be beneficial to health, despite suggestions that small frequent meals can help with weight loss and prevent weight gain.
I found these points interesting from the article. Thanks for posting!

Thanks for posting this. Was beginning to question whether this DD "fasting" was such a good idea. Thanks for the reminder.
