    For me personally, I cannot fast, period. When I don't eat, my blood sugar continues to elevate until I give in and eat. That being said, my body tends to be weird.

    I think it is also important to realize that not all people became diabetic for the same reasons. Far too many people believe that folks are diabetic (type 2) due to obesity.

    Although the parts about obesity in this video do not apply to me, this video made all the difference in the word for me.[/video]
    That's interesting that your blood sugar is elevated when you don't eat...Did the doctor know why that is?

    Since you're thin, you probably don't have the resources to do much fasting since fat is stored energy. Have you heard of T.O.F.I., or "Thin Outside, Fat Inside", as in visceral fat around the organs? I had heard that can be the cause for thin type 2's?


    I do live a KETO lifestyle and have for more than a few years now.

    This is a video I made for a diabetes forum that I work with. It is the basics of what I do.



    Just my 2 cents...
    Sharing with my brother, who hates even the idea of fasting. Fasting seems to be working for me even better than the Keto. I'm finding I can add a few more carbs back and I'm still losing weight. I'll just have to see if that lasts...

    My body appears to make plenty (as of right now) insulin. It just has a really hard time actually using it. (This is also known as insulin resistance, mine is just worse than the average diabetic.) My thyroid tends to spit out too many hormones and my pituitary gland likes to be a brat. Basically, for me, it is similar (but not the same as) as dawn phenomenon or the Somogyi effect. Basically, hormones tell my liver to release glucose into my blood steam, especially when it thinks I am not eating, but not just when I wake up. In the mornings I can stop the increase with a KETO coffee which of course breaks the overnight fast. FWIW when I was diagnosed with diabetes, I was in the best shape of my life. My weight was under control, I didn't eat junk (primarily real food) and I walked (intentional) 5-10 miles daily. Clearly that didn't protect me. When I was diagnosed, I as admitted to the hospital with a 13+ A1C. Today my A1C runs in the 5.2 range, so I think I'll just keep on doing what works for me. (FWIW I had gestational diabetes during all of my pregnancies which increases the risk of diabetes type 2 later in life. Additionally, I have a large number of relatives with diabetes.)

    I truly believe diabetics need to research and try everything until they find the solution that works for them. For me, KETO is simple, I don't have to think too much and only rarely feel any hunger. To this day, I follow the basics that I posted in that video I made, and continue to do so.

    P.S. My KETO coffee consist of the following. (1) strong coffee (2) heavy whipping cream (3) stevia (4) butter (5) coconut oil or MCT oil. I blend it all in the blender.

    For the type 2 diabetics reading this thread, don't lose time or drive yourself crazy wondering how or why you have diabetes.

    There is just ONE THING that matters. Learning how to control it.

    For Annie, start canning meat, above ground veggies, and perhaps lard for a SHTF situation.

    Diabetes and/or KETO is something I can talk about for hours.

    Nope. I knew you'd be the one to offer the best advice and information.

    If anyone asks I just say I'm cutting out sugar and starch. Who can argue that? The conversation always ends there.

    Nobody has the courage to argue with me about my personal nutrition.

    For me personally, all the proof I need is in my results and my labs.

    I thought Cricket had left us for an even higher paying job and that @Mish was in charge.
