I started a new fast on Sunday so I am at day 4 now. So far it is going very well. Not very hungry and not too grouchy (that I can tell). I’ve dropped off half the weight I regained over the four days of eating.
Stopped taking Metformin on the third day of this fast. My blood sugar numbers are up a bit but still on the low end. By dinner time last night my Blood Sugar was 88.
Considering starting up some exercise. Not for weight loss, it might in fact hinder some weight loss. More to work on my Blood Pressure. I have had a nice mountain bike since 2007 but I rarely ever ride the bike. So I bought a trainer which is attaches to the rear tire and turns the bike into a stationary bike.
One of my Keto/fasting heros, Tom, uses an ap called Kinomap. It lets you ride in different places in the world where people have recorded videos of their rides.
I pulled the bike out of the basement, cleaned it off and pumped up the tires. Hopefully I will be in riding shape by Spring. There’s a great bike trail very near to here,
Results After 6 months on the HP diet, 100% of the subjects had remission of their pre-diabetes to normal glucose tolerance, whereas only 33.3% of subjects on the HC diet had remission of their pre-diabetes. The HP diet group exhibited significant improvement in (1) insulin sensitivity (p=0.001), (2) cardiovascular risk factors (p=0.04), (3) inflammatory cytokines (p=0.001), (4) oxidative stress (p=0.001), (5) increased percent lean body mass (p=0.001) compared with the HC diet at 6 months.
