    A Best kept secret to Losing weight

    There is a TV show called Trust Me I'm a Doctor, and this week they covered this subject and did all sorts of experiments and tests on subjects. It does work and there is a huge amount of study into this at the moment. The human body it seems doesn't expect to eat all day, in fact sugar and fat levels rise in the body in the evening in readiness for the fasting period, so if you eat in the evening you are disrupting the body's natural way of balancing things. The group who stopped eating at 6pm and started eating 12 hours later showed a marked improvement in body fat levels, ability to cope with sugars, all sorts. I don't think those outside the UK will be able to see the show in BBC I Player, but here is the link anyway.

    There is a BBC 2 programme here called "Trust Me I'm a Doctor". They ran experiments this week with a control group, testing some ground breaking research being done into this very subject. The results were astounding. The group following the "fasting" rule of not eating after 6pm and then not eating again for 12 hours, showed marked improvements in body fat levels, ability to process sugars etc etc etc. If you are in the UK it will be on BBCI Player. The whole idea is that the human body is not designed to eat all day and only stop when sleeping. In fact they found that the human body naturally increases its fat levels and sugar levels in the evening ready for the fasting period. If you eat after a certain time then you are disrupting the body's natural level...see more »There is a BBC 2 programme here called "Trust Me I'm a Doctor".
