Eating in 10-hour window can override disease-causing genetic defects, nurture health.

Salk scientists discover that periods of fasting can protect against obesity and diabetes.

“But restricting food intake to 10 hours a day, and fasting the rest, can lead to better health, regardless of our biological clock.”.

But these same mice, when restricted to the high-fat diet for a daily 8- to 10-hour window became lean, fit and healthy.

The genetic defects in these clock-less mice make them prone to obesity, diabetes, fatty liver disease and elevated blood cholesterol.

This internal timing strikes a balance between sufficient nutrition during the fed state and necessary repair or rejuvenation during fasting. »
