Dr. Pankaj Naram Comments on New Study Revealing Promising Results for Fast-Mimicking Diets
A new study is showing that fast-mimicking diets may prove to be beneficial for an individual’s overall health.
Many doctors and nutrition experts know that one of the most reliable ways for individuals to live healthier and improve their wellbeing is to pursue a healthier diet. Making dietary changes can offer a number of benefits, especially when individuals avoid crash diets and instead make long term choices that utilize the nutrition of fruits and vegetables and cut out processed food. Master Healer Dr. Pankaj Naram is one of the health experts who believes that the secret to healthy living is finding the right diet, and that is why he enjoys sharing new studies on how adjustments to the way that individuals eat can impact their health for the better. Today Dr. Pankaj Naram would like to share information on a new study entitled Fast-Mimicking Diet and Markets/Risk Factors for Aging, Diabetes, Cancer, and Cardiovascular Disease.
This recent study set out to discover if a fast-mimicking diet may be able to reduce the risk factors for some common diseases.
They set out to do this because after they observed metabolic improvements in mice who periodically fasted and wanted to see if these results could be replicated in humans. The study called upon 71 individuals to try a fast mimicking diet, either by spending five days a month for three months following the fasting diet, or switching to the fasting diet after three months of following their typical diet. The fast-mimicking diet was low in sugars, protein, and calories but high in unsaturated fats, and was specially designed to mimic the effects of fasting from everything but water without actually calling upon the participates to go without eating.
After three months, the results of the participants who followed the fast-mimicking diet were compared to individuals who had continued their typical diets for the three months.
Those who followed the special diet saw positive results including weight loss and reduced blood pressure. Additionally the researchers saw positive impacts on C-reactive proteins, fasting glucose, body mass index, and low density lipoprotein cholesterol. They also saw greater positive impacts in these areas on participants who were already showing risk factors for diseases like diabetes and cancer. This has encouraged the team to consider doing a second study with participants who have already been diagnosed with such diseases to see if this diet could benefit them as well.
Dr. Pankaj Naram wanted to share the results of studies like this because they provide examples of how diet is proving to be a huge benefit to individuals who want to be healthier.
Dr. Pankaj Naram hopes that individuals take this new study as evidence to the benefits of proper diet and make efforts to improve their own diets to feel happier, be healthier, and live longer.
