13 hour daily fast associated with a 36 percent decrease in breast cancer recurrence | Ruth Patterson

Parent Episode: Ruth Patterson, PhD, on Time-Restricted Eating in Humans & Breast Cancer Prevention

An overnight fast of at least 13 hours has been associated with a decrease in breast cancer recurrence and mortality among women, regardless of what the women ate. Constraining when one eats is an approach that can promote a sense of self-efficacy, which can lead to incorporating other healthy lifestyle behaviors such as walking. The whole family can participate in an adjusted eating window, which may also provide benefits for conditions including diabetes, fatty liver disease, and acid reflux. In this clip, Dr. Ruth Patterson discusses how simply changing when one eats can have a profound effect on the risk of breast cancer recurrence.
