    I like your concept. I am age 70, retired, diabetic 35 years, mostly pills, now on Lantus and fast acting insulin both, 35 units a day. I wonder what reaction you getting from traditional diabetic doctors? I also wish to report, when I had a heart stent in April 2013, I was ill with multiple other problems following discharge from HOSP. I had to almost stop eating normal food, due to both digestive problems and to too high blood sugar most regular meals. So I went to use of a lot of liquid drinks for a year, from 100 to 300 calories each , depending on the drink, and might have some almonds and a half apple or other fruit. It was perhaps a variation or form of fasting, as some days I consumed only 600 or 800 calories, not the 1600 my GP said I needed. My goal was not weight loss, it was better sugar control, and a gasterologist tried to tell me to stop eating most foods, they were fermenting too much, causing gas in my system, he speculated. However, I did not like the list the Gasterologist provided to me over and over, so I skipped his meals, and I used liquid drinks 75% my meals. From June 2013 to June 2014 I lost 50 pounds. But all doctors were still promoting more and more insulin., and eating normal foods and meals. I have gained back 20 of the lost 50 pounds, but I proved intermittent fasting could work, even with limited liquid drinks and some solids and normal meals. But I have a ways to go. I need to lose back down to 160 I expect, but I have multiple health issues, some without diagnosis. So I try to study my own needs and challenges, as I have seen over a dozen doctors in these near 2 years since a heart stent, they lack time or determination to be of much help to me. So I am my own do it yourself project. I respect your hypothesis. Thanks.

    I think I read you provide help or advice for $100 on an alternate site. What would you need from me, and what would you provide to me, in order to offer me the help you describe or offer to clients. Is it a once fee of $100 a year, or otherwise? I have watched a couple of your video presentations. I have back pain such that I have to take Tylenol to enable me to exercise a few times a week. I wish I felt better so I could exercise more time a week. Do you e-mail advice or surface mail your advice? Does your service allow some ongoing questions? jdh. 12-13-14

  7. Hi Dr Fung
    I loved your presentation on the research supporting fasting, insulin levels and diabetes. Do you have any research data on type 2 diabetes in Muslim populations during the fasting month of Ramadan?

    This concept of type 2 diabetes mellitus makes scientific sense. I am a General Practitioner [Family Physician] working in England. 3.6 million people in the UK have type 2 diabetes, that’s 5.5% of the population.

    Survival programmes on TV are very popular, where individuals or groups of people try to survive in alien environments. Quite a few end up starving, i.e. involuntary fasting, and are frequently depicted as being lethargic, with barely enough energy to keep going. That doesn’t fit with your assertion that energy levels remain the same or increase during fasting. How would you respond? Is it because western society has an expectation of lethargy if we don’t eat?
