    All of Jason’s analogies or illustrations really solidified some things for me. I got a lot out of this discussion.

    Regarding fasting, I finally ‘got’ the idea of ‘not calling wolf at all’ or fasting and having nothing cause an insulin response. This really makes sense to me—high levels and persistent levels. I also ‘got’ where fructose goes to the ‘heart’ (liver LOL) of the insulin resistance problem. The sugar bowl being full helped as well.

    I’ve been learning lots over the past 20 months, while I’ve researched the LCHF/keto way of eating. I think fasting is a tool in the toolbox. I believe it might be useful for me because of the years of damage caused by #oralcontraceptive to my appetite and weight.

    (Girls, if you’re reading this, try to avoid manipulating your hormones to protect from pregnancy or for other health problems. Research research research or find a plugged-in health provider/Doctor. If only I could go back to the 23-year-old girl who weighed 63kg when she started the pill … oh how things might have been better.)

    I’m now working on what other issues I have through a nutritional/functional doc, trained in the #WalshApproach. My inflammation started to return.

    I’m going to be missing breakfast/intermittent fasting for the long term and hopefully things will start to progress again.

    Thanks Jimmy and Dr Fung for another great discussion. I learnt a lot today from this podcast and will now keep insulin low for ‘longer periods of time’ …. by that I mean, no snacking, even if those snacks are LCHF.
    Awesome podcast!
