    In October it will be your 2nd anniversary?
    I bet improvements for you since the first post on this thread @bulkbiker ???
    Is fasting worth doing?

    Yes 2 years in October wonder if I can get to my target weight before then... still intermittent fasting and toying with the idea of another 7 day fast. One day I'll get committed and do a proper water only fast. For me fasting and a ketogenic diet have been absolute game changers. Stable blood sugars (although still slightly higher than I would like) between 4 and 6 most days mostly 5's FBG.

    I've realised the hard way..... only 4, 5 and 6s help me lose weight and on metformin. I'm still needing insulin but hoping to try and either drop it or just have a little, like type1s.
    It's strange how everyone needs to find their method but thank god there are some options.
    You are doing fantastic! Well done. I wish I had time on my side like you to take it at your bodies pace.
    Definitely writing an indepth diabetic strategy book would be a godsend to the newly diagnosed. Even recommend it to oldies like me?
    The end result has to be the same. Weight loss and good maintenance to keep this dangerous disease in it's box. ;)
