Hi Marty. I missed this post first time round, during that distracting viral pandemic. Glad that I found it now.
Just heard your discussion on the Low carb MD podcast. I do like the way you present your observations. I remember attending a talk you gave at Low Carb Brisbane back in the mid two thousands and teens. That was my introduction to looking at LCHF and type 1 diabetics.
My sceptical reflex was to wonder, is this where technology meets eating disorder? But that’s just a cynical fear at it’s core.
I think what you have provided here is a choice. The choice of an engineering approach for the data driven LCHF people that have either hit maintenance or a stall in their timeline.
The extended benefit to data driven fasting is tuning in and relearning the physiological cues to eat. It becomes almost a built in redundancy into data driven fasting. As the practitioner correlates how they feel to what they can measure, they develop an intrinsic instinctive knowledge of when to eat added to their explorations, through LCHF, if what to eat.
You’ve booked us onto a retrorocket time machine back into our human past. Thank you.
