Thanks Irishred, you’re too kind.
No, I was crazy and jumped in right away after seeing a documentary on the benefits of fasting and reading everything I could find. I had been diabetic for 3 years when I did my 13 days fast. I changed a little my diet before that, but it didn’t help much to control my bg or lose weight.
The first few days after the fast, I was ravenous, but couldn’t eat large portions like before. And my bg didn’t skyrocket as much as before. After that, I started to crave eating clean. It was like my system had been reset. So I controlled my diabetes with diet and exercise for a while.
A month or two after that, I began IF, sometimes 20/4, sometimes omad. The month after, I decided to do a longer fast and manage to do 3 days. That was my pattern for a long time until my fasting burn out. It was always IF every day, then when I stalled I did a longer fast.
I hope I answered your question. Don’t hesitate to ask any question. I learn so much every day seeing the comments from everyone here and I’m inspired to continue on this journey .
Good day everyone .
