Low level insulin could reduce body weight
(credit to ketogenicforums.com)

We talked about insulin resistance at previous post (What is the Meaning of Insulin Resistance? - Diabetes 15).

The post said that “Insulin resistance refers to cells (of organs) which resist to insulin, thus glucose in the blood streams can not enter the cells, and then can not be used as source of energy.”

Then, “Resist to insulin is a kind of pretext to reduce cells ability in order to absorb glucose. This condition could cause increasing of sugar level in the blood.”

The question then, can we fix Insulin Resistance? The answer is yes.

Researchers suggest many methods, fasting intermittently is one of cheap, easy and healthy methods.

Fasting intermittently means that we are fasting, no meals for several our in 24 periods or several days in a week.


Some examples of intermittent fasting

Many methods are developed by dietitian or health professional to intermittent fasting as of above Table:
- 5 : 2 means two fasting days in a week
- 24 hours without food for 1 to 3 days in a week
- Time restricted, fasting for 12 to 16 hours a day.

The two important purposes of fasting intermittently are:
- lower insulin level
- improve insulin sensitivity.

Normal range of insulin level is below 100 pmol/L as shown in the first graph (Figure 1 above), but some sources said < 174 pmol/L.

In relation to energy, lower insulin level means that body fat can be used as source of energy. Hence, body fat may be burned.

  8. Maybe it's not a good idea fasting. It's very controversial for people with insulin resistance to go into fast even for a short one.
