    Thats what Dr.Fung says on his blog. Requires longer fast to improve.

    Brunneria - there are other reasons to fast beyond weight loss and improved insulin sensitivity. Dr Jason Fung lists anti-aging and anti-cancer effects, and there is anecdotal evidence that it improves some autoimmune and neurological conditions as well.

    Yup, the fasting mimicing diet by Valter Longo is based on that thinking... But I personally am FAR too fixated on food to follow through with it! :D So, personally, i prioritise bg and insulin reduction.

    Been maintaining fasting glucose level of around 5.5 mmol over the past year on carbs lite fats friendly diet and occasional intermittent fasting.

    Just started on a multi-day fast with coconut oil to manage hunger and mental fatigue...and it is looking good.
    Ranging 4.0-4.7 mmol all day long...
