    Hi, I haven't tried this yet.
    There was one time attempt to do it and my BG level went through the roof, so I got scared and cancelled it.
    Now I am reducing the amount of food with decent amount of exercise for the rest of the week, and hoping to see improvement.
    The thing is that, using insulin, I gained weight :/ And I do not lose visceral fat as I am hoping to happen.

    What is your fasting experience?
    I am very new to Diabetes and doing my best trying different things to achieve stabilized BGL.
    Thank you for responding to this.

    6.6 after splurging on a giant waffle with Nutella sauce, cream and ice cream. It was really good but in hindsight not worth it....x

    At least it is going in the right direction.

    Having watched Fixing Dad last night has re-energised me to do the right thing.
