There have been some really fascinating studies on the treatment and prevention of various cancers using intermittent fasting in the last few years. Most cancer cells are reliant on glucose as a fuel source. Fasting causes a collapse of insulin, which forces the body to use fat as fuel after glycogen is depleted. It literally starves the cancer cells! I’ll be releasing a blog post next week covering the topic of fasting. As long as your body’s stress response in working well then a fast can help the body clear precancerous cells, sensitize the body to insulin, and make you look great in those holiday photos!
