FASTING & TYPE 2 DIABETES

How to cure Type 2 diabetes as described by Jason Fung, MD

Modern medicine says that Type 2 diabetes is a progressive disease. This belief is wrong.

Type 2 diabetes does not have to be progressive.

You do not have to take insulin or other diabetes drugs for the rest of your life.

You can cure your Type 2 diabetes.

Below is a summary of a paper coauthored by Jason Fung, MD, author of the book The Complete Guide to Fasting and the book The Diabetes Code, describing three (3) people who cured their Type 2 diabetes by doing intermittent fasting, fasting 24 hours per day, 3 times per week.

FASTING

Does fasting reduce metabolism? No, notes Jason Fung, MD

You might think that fasting to lose weight would cause a drop in metabolism—I certainly assumed that it would—but this is not true according to a new, very interesting book called The Complete Guide to Fasting: Heal Your Body Through Intermittent, Alternate-Day, and Extended Fasting by Jason Fung, MD and Jimmie Moore.

Fasting does not reduce basal metabolism.

In fact, one study suggests that the exact opposite happens.

4 days of continuous fasting increased metabolism by 12%

They noted that one study found that four (4) days of continuous fasting increased basal metabolism by 12 percent.

Dr. Fung explains why this is.

FASTING

Does fasting cause muscle loss? No, notes Jason Fung, MD

Does fasting to lose weight causes you to lose muscle?

No, it does not according to a new book called The Complete Guide to Fasting: Heal Your Body Through Intermittent, Alternate-Day, and Extended Fasting by Jason Fung, MD and Jimmie Moore.

“Alternate-day fasting over seventy days decreased body weight by 6 percent, but fat mass decreased by 11.4 percent and lean mass (muscle and bone) did not change at all,” Dr. Fung writes.

“The normal protein breakdown of around seventy-five [75] grams per day falls to fifteen to twenty [15-20] grams per day during fasting.

“Rather than burning muscle during fasting, we start conserving muscle.

“Much of the amino acids that are broken down during regular turnover of cells are reabsorbed into new proteins.”

Does fasting to lose weight cause low blood sugar?

No, it does not according to a new book called The Complete Guide to Fasting: Heal Your Body Through Intermittent, Alternate-Day, and Extended Fasting by Jason Fung, MD and Jimmie Moore.

“Sometimes people worry that blood sugar will fall very low during fasting and they will become shaky and sweaty. Luckily, this does not actually happen,” Dr. Fung writes.

FASTING

Does fasting provoke overeating? No, notes Jason Fung, MD

If someone fasts for a day, will they eat twice as much the next day?

No according to a new book called The Complete Guide to Fasting: Heal Your Body Through Intermittent, Alternate-Day, and Extended Fasting by Jason Fung, MD and Jimmie Moore.

Studies show that people eat roughly an extra 500 calories on the day after a fast, but not nearly enough to make up for the calories lost on the day where people consume no calories Dr. Fung notes.
