    I dunno if I actually deserve to be a part of this but I wanted to share my own story here about switching to fasting and LCHF.

    One year diabetic with sugars all over the shop and not giving a hoot about myself ended up getting a HBA1C of 114 or 12.6% at the end of the year with the threat of injectables or insulin on my horizon. Started off with research and cutting out as much carbs as I could and going on a liberal low carb diet for January but still had figures in the 10's and 8's most of the time so shifted ideas.

    Started skipping breakfast and having coffee with cream (or CWC as I call it now) and eating lunch and dinner on a 16:8 fasting regime with a 24 hour fast once per week and got bloods down to the 6's and 5's plus a HB1AC of 41 down from the 114 just a few months earlier which would have included my abysmal numbers earlier in the year.

    Now on OMAD with 24 hour fasts whilst at work and looking to go longer but as bloods are 4's and 5's and the fat is melting off I will try doing some 2-3 day fasts in the week.

    Inspiring stories though everyone and thanks for sharing!
