    A great success story, and I love "butter makes your pants fall off" - I may have to steal that phrase for my signature!

    If you are not eating, you only produce a basal level of insulin. It does reduce your food-induced insulin release by 50% as you are only eating less than half the time.
    I also like the site having known about it for several years but only bit the low carb bullet in the last few months.
