In the past couple of weeks I've done blog posts related to blood sugar issues. Did one on kind of a new thought process around blood sugar and Type 2 Diabetes. Not so new to us. We talked about that in the blog post. And then I did one a little while back on Intermittent versus Episodic Fasting. After listening to what I say today you might want to go back and review those blog posts because they're applicable to this.

[Intermittent & Episodic Fasting]
Today I'm talking ... I'm back to holding paper again. If you go back, I don't know a year or so, I did the newscaster thing like this where I hold paper. Anyway, talking about a case report in the British Medical Journal. This was back in 2018. The title so that if you want to pull it up you can, title of the article in the British Medical Journal was “Therapeutic Use of Intermittent Fasting for People With Type 2 Diabetes as an Alternative to...
This is part 2, find part 1 HERE.
Last week's blog post was on intermittent and episodic fasting. It went over well, but I got lots of questions, and I kind of figured I would. That's why I asked for questions, and that's why we do the blog posts.
Today, I'm going to go over some of those questions to get them answered, a part two to last week's blog post. I'm just going to jump right in.
First question I got ... I'm grouping these. I got four main questions, but they were all phrased different ways by different people, so I think if I answer these four, it'll pretty much cover what I got. When to do intermittent versus episodic fasting. That was a pretty common question in some way, shape, or form.
I guess I gave the impression that you only need to do episodic fasting if you're having trouble with intermittent fasting, if intermittent fasting isn't working for you. It can work that way. It can certainly help you become ... Episodic fasting can certainly help you become more...
Hi everyone! I you want to tell you a little bit about intermittent fasting versus episodic fasting. You may not have heard of episodic fasting, but we'll talk about it in just a minute. Intermittent fasting is a paradigm, or a plan in which you eat all your food for the day within about an eight hour eating window. Now, that time can vary depending on your situation, but for our purposes here, we're going to talk about an eight hour eating window. That would mean that there's a 16 hour window where you don't eat. You can have plenty of water and you can have maybe some herbal tea, bone broth, something like that. But generally you don't need anything, just a few clear liquids, nothing that would raise insulin levels. That's an important part of it.
So the idea here is we're supposed to have a mechanism by which we eat, or overeat, and we take the extra and store it as body fat. Then in times of need, when we don't have enough to eat, we can pull back out of the body fat...
