When more food is available, the cells in the body become less sensitive to insulin. When the food supply is scarce, during fasting, the human body tries to conserve as much energy as possible and cell membranes more sensitive to insulin, metabolising it better.
... like obesity & type 2 diabetes, both of which are risk factors for cancer. Studies have shown that fasting two to three times per week lowers weight and improves insulin tolerance.
Autophagy is critical for maintaining proper cell function, and it also helps defend cells in the body. Autophagy plays an important role in preventing and treating cancer.
Early studies are showing fasting may help reduce chemotherapy-related headaches and nausea, because it promotes cellular regeneration.
