Can You Do A 24h Fast With Type 1 Diabetes?

Recently, I’ve read a lot about fasting, intermittent fasting and how to do it. Intermittent fasting can be done in many ways, depending on your preferences and lifestyle, and basically means to cut down on calories for a limited period of time, to give the body a chance to use its own reserves. This can be especially helpful if you’re trying to lose weight, or keep your blood glucose levels more stable. In some cases, these two are interlinked (read: Type 2 Diabetes). What is important to remember is to still eat enough calories. You just do it within a limited time window. Intermittent fasting makes your body use the energy (food) consumed more efficiently. And no, skipping a meal (or even two) won’t send your body into a crisis-starvation mode. That takes a good few days to happen. Intermittent fasting usually has numbers attached to it, depending on how long you’re fasting for; – 5:2 means you’re restricting calories on 2 days of the week, while eating “normal” the other 5. – 20:4 means you fast for 20 hours, eating one or more meals within the remaining 4 hours. – 24/36/48/72:0 simply means a 24/36/48/72 hour fast. – 16:8 means you eat your meals within a Continue reading >>

    I just wanted to let you know I have had type 1 diabetes for more than 30 years. When diagnosed at 20 years of age my weight was 47 kgs, over the years of constant intensive insulin therapy, 2 children and a good life my weight had increased to 70kgs. I had tried so many weight loss programs with no success, I just accepted that long term high insulin levels made it almost impossible to loose weight, I lead a very healthy lifestyle, exercised and ate very well. My Hb1 was usually about 7 so my physician was happy with my control and lifestyle, I just wanted to loose weight. My husband was addressing a liver issue when we saw your program and wanted to try the 5:2 diet so did I, against your recommendation. I began very carefully, having read your books and researching as much as possible then testing my BGL’s every hour and learning how my body responded we began. I have now been using the 5:2 for a year, I have lost 15kgs and kept it off, my Hb1 is currently 6.8 and my daily insulin use has decreased dramatically. On my fast days I use just long acting insulin until dinner when I have a bolus of short acting when I eat. This process has been so liberating for me knowing I can actually skip meals safely ( I have always been told ” you have to eat, don’t forget to eat …” I have better control of my diabetes, I am not constantly trying to add carbohydrates to meals but using my insulin more wisely. Perhaps some controlled research into fasting with diabetes may be in order, I know it has been fantastic for me but I am not recommending it for anyone else without medical support but thank you so much for the books they have been fantastic for us and yes my husband now has great LFT results, his doctor said he would live all patients to fix themselves!

Learn to get the most out of your style of Fasting... If it's for you. Learn more here http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com Get The Clothes That I Wear at 40% Off - Use Code TD40 at http://www.Hylete.com Previously it was touted to eat every 2 hours if you are bodybuilding, with some even waking up in the middle of the night to eat. The thought was that if you did not eat your body would begin to break down your muscles, which is the last thing we want. Now you have likely heard about intermittent fasting and how without this approach you will not be maximizing your fitness potential. So which strategy is correct, or are different approaches better for different goals? What is IF? The idea is to go without food for a period of time so that you deplete your immediate energy sources, ie your blood glucose and liver glycogen stores, so your body is forced into fat-burning mode. The main benefit that those of us trying to keep muscle and lose fat are concerned with is the increase in Human Growth Hormone (HGH). HGH is made in the pituitary gland and plays a role in the our development as we grow as children, but also plays a key role in bone strength and lean body mass. Higher HGH levels are associated with higher lean muscle mass - thus more muscle and less fat. HGH was used as a performance enhancing drug, but in a supplement form was found to lead to increased blood sugar, pre-diabetes, increase in blood pressure and possible increased cancer and heart health risks. This makes sense as our bodies naturally have hormones vary in level throughout the day, so an increased level of hormones throughout the day to that degree is not healthy. IF is the natural way to increase HGH levels. HGH peaks in adolescence and then steadily decreases with age. Eating suppresses the release of HGH. HGH secretion is found when we first wake up in the morning after our night fast, and if we continue to fast, secretion continues throughout the day until we begin to eat again. In essence, HGH signals our bodies to burn fat when we are in a state of caloric deficit. So IF done correctly can encourage our bodies to hold onto their muscle and get rid of fat! So how can you use this to your advantage, and who should stay away from IF? First we must understand the two different IF approaches and who they are for. Two approaches: Full Day Fast or Daily Fast Full Day Fast What is it? Take one full day off of eating every week. Purpose? Recovery from injuries over the week and keep weight low or lose weight. Benefits: Higher growth hormone levels, decreased inflammation, detoxification, lower caloric intake. For Whom? Endurance athletes, weight class athletes, everyday people who want to reap the health and weight loss benefits. Who Should Avoid Full Day Fasts? Those who are trying to put weight on, bodybuilders Daily Fast What is it? Daily fasting window, often around 16 hours, followed by an 8-hour eating window. Purpose? Increases mental focus/concentration and focus at the gym, strength gains Benefits: Quicker reaction times, increased focus. Can benefit those doing weight training and work sessions. Get things done more efficiently. For Whom? Athletes who could benefit from increased focus, business people who could use increased energy and focus, people traveling or who have busy schedules - reduces how often you have to think about and eat food. Takeaways/Guidelines: If you are a bodybuilder or professional athlete, you will want to be careful when performing IF. Full day IF creates a caloric deficit and is a good idea to avoid if you are trying to put on weight or have a high caloric need. When trying to get a lean, ripped look, daily IF can benefit you. You will find increased focus at the gym, and your body will use the increase in HGH to burn stubborn body fat stores, such as around your midsection. Daily IF - best to skip breakfast and workout before eating to capitalize on the increased concentration at the gym. Best to eat shortly after workout to provide muscles with protein to heal. You can pair IF with BCAA supplementation when working out to provide your muscles with the tools to repair. Take about 5 g of BCAAs before, during and after practice. Endurance athletes should not compete during a fasting period as they need immediate energy stores available, not just the slow energy provided from fat. References: 1.

My Experience With Intermittent Fasting For Type 1 Diabetes

In a nutshell, intermittent fasting means closing the window of time during which you eat. If you have breakfast at 7am and finish dinner at 7pm, you’d be eating during a 12 hour window and fasting for the other 12. Many of us don’t do that, though. Nighttime snacking is likely an epidemic and from what I hear/read, it is wise to give your body at least 12 hours of fasting time. Have you ever skipped a meal and felt lighter, recharged, and not hungry? I have often felt this way. I understand about a third of you will probably be about the opposite but such is my experience. Intermittent Fasting for Weight Loss I was interested in intermittent fasting years ago when I read what Tim Ferris had to say about it. He has access to exceptional people, is wildly curious, and respects science to as much as a degree as I can tell so I tend to consider what he has to say. I started trying it a year and a half ago in the hopes it would help me lose some stubborn weight. If I didn’t have type 1 I might have type 2 diabetes. In other words, I become resistant pretty easily and quickly to insulin. If I eat my disciplined way and exercise my basal insulin is about 11 units every 24 hours. If Continue reading >>

    So I have a few questions as a type 1 diabetic, and I've never been able to get an answer to either of them. If anyone could help me figure out the answers (or already has them and can share them so I don't need to figure them out) I'd be mighty obliged!
    1. As a type 1 diabetic, I inject insulin. Obviously I need to guess, prior to an injection how much I'm eating, of what, and how much I'm exercising. Like most diabetics who still have their feet, I'm pretty good at it. But nonetheless, occasionally I take a wee bit too much, get a bit sugar low and need to eat some glucose tablets, or I take a wee bit too little and get sugar high and need to take some quick acting insulin ot bring it down. This is all fine and dandy, as it works. My question is this. If I'm IFing, how much does needing to eat some sugar in the middle of it mess up the "results". How much does it effect the body's feeling of starvation mode, the cell protection stuff Mark has talked about, etc.
    2. Similar question. Can a diabetic enter ketosis? I mean, I'm on a very low carb diet anyway, but I've never had any of the symptoms of ketosis. I inject insulin (small amounts, because I'm very low carb) and need to keep my blood sugars in a fixed range (generally between 80 - 100). So my insulin dose + food + occasional sugar tablets is all played with to keep me in this happy range. Because of that, I'm not sure it is possible to enter Ketosis. Is it?
    Thanks for reading folks!

    hi *i am not a doctor* but here are my thoughts - IFing is great, but it's not the be all and end all of life. if you're blood sugar drops precipitously low as a T1 diabetic, that can literally be the end all of life. do not let your blood sugar get to low in an attempt to experience the benefits of IF. you can be extremely health primal, and best buds with grok with out IFing. safety first!!! but to answer the question, yes, you lose the benefits of a fast if you take in either glucose or protein.
    diabetics can definitely enter ketosis. i have no idea if it's a safe practice, and wouldn't dream of advising you to do so. you also don't need to be in ketosis for anything - health or weightloss.

    For this I would find a Paleo doc or other type of practitioner. Even another Type I might have very different issues going on from you, so not all experiences would be equivalent or interchangeable with your situation. Just be careful, safety first...
