Two Weeks into IF + LCHF (From Aug 2016)

My goal was to reduce my Insulin from the pump and not mess up my blood sugars. I went on Intermittent Fasting and it’s working great. My insulin usage over the past 45 days is:

If diabetes is really a chronic irreversible disease then this should have led to some very bad Blood Glucose numbers from what I have done to my drop my Insulin levels over the last 2 weeks. I have cut my numbers from around 100 to around 25 units. The drop down has been fairly smooth.

The one pop up was my trip to the Frozen Custard shop for a pretty big frozen custard cone. I pumped a lot that day to counteract the custard. Perhaps I should have tried to leave it alone (eat the custard and not pump for it) but old habits die hard.

SO what are my Blood Glucose levels? Glad I asked.

No more erratic highs. Daily average Blood Glucose level before IF was 159. Average after is 122. Very steady numbers and nothing over 150.

So is it working? By every test I have at my hands IF is working fantastically well.

Your mileage may vary.
