Re: Intermittent fasting protocols to improve insulin control

I fast about 22 hours daily (water fast).

Re: Reporting Aboard

I'm with you in spades, although I'm wondering if quality sleep might be challenging exercise for top spot.

Re: Intermittent fasting protocols to improve insulin control

I do IF for 14-16 hours most days but I drink my version of Bulletproof Coffee after 12 hours or later – just a cup of espresso with a tsp of MCT oil. Any of you do it? Do you think it breaks the fast? https://www.bulletproofexec.com/bulletproof-fasting/ This guy: http://jamesclear.com/reader-mailb...

Re: Reporting Aboard

Great, Stavia. I'm following your lead. I was intrigued when I found this study though: http://www.lmreview.com/articles/view/omega-3s-apoe-genotype-and-cognitive-decline/ "Despite the disproportionately high prevalence of ApoE ε4, cardiovascular disease and diabetes among Native Americans, and...

Re: Intermittent fasting protocols to improve insulin control

Thanks everyone for the great advice. :) I did a 16 hour fast last night. I worked out the last hour (strength training) before breaking the fast. I wasn't particularly hungry but I was getting a bit light headed. My strength training was off but that may be more of the dietary changes than the fast...

Re: Reporting Aboard

Julie, you said any animal fat will affect small dense LDL particles in E4. That includes fish and eggs?

Re: Intermittent fasting protocols to improve insulin control

Marc and Maureen - that is very helpful. I will give the 16 hour fast a test trial. Are either of you testing your glucose or ketones using a personal monitoring system? Did you see any deltas as you experimented with the fasting protocols?
Thanks,

Intermittent fasting protocols to improve insulin control

Hi All, I'm looking to explore intermittent fasting to improve my insulin response. I'm E4/E4 with Glucose averaging 99 over the last several years and my HbA1c at around 5.5. I'm looking at the various protocols. One that I found in this study from 2005 http://jap.physiology.org/content/99/6/2128.s...

Re: Folic Acid inhibits Amyloid-beta ....

Thank you so much for your interpretation, Stavia. Yes, they coincided.
Likewise to Susan for the continued dialogue on MTHFR issues.
