Regarding food types while intermittent fasting: I have four standard meals that I typically eat. And I went from eating two of these each day to only eating one. But frankly, during the 6 weeks I did this routine, I wasn't particularly diligent. When I felt like a late snak, I had it. And if I was active during the day, I would allow myself a second meal, if hungery. But I still averaged a two pound per week loss. (I started at 284) And the single meal I ate was a substantial one. I didn't really feel deprived. But I was spending most of the day in a very low insulin state. And your body wont release its fat stores in the presence of significant insulin/glucose. Diets that have you eating six smaller meals throughout the day, leave very little time when you have insulin levels low enough to allow fat release.

I think if they could tell us how we got diabetes, they could also cure it. They can't do either.

I stuffed my gob with carbs and junk food and couldn't stop...until I got diagnosed with Type 2.

Re: The Obesity & Diabetes "Connection:"

I just remembered an early episode of "The Doctors."
One of the show's employees was a guest on the show. He was around 100 lbs. overweight. The doctors wanted to show everyone how well they could predict his health issues - to appear "smart" & "professional," I guess.

They really should have rehearsed his tests beforehand because that young doctor (Travis Stork) ended up looking rather foolish, especially when he spoke about how likely the employee would be diabetic because of his weight. They tested his blood sugar & it was 92. Dr. Stork looked confused & said, "Well...uh...that's actually pretty good."

Sounds like somebody is still sore about a little misunderstanding we had years ago :>)

Secondly, I don't think most people would disagree that Diabetes seems to be more than one disturbance that results in elevated blood sugars. Everyone does not arrive at diabetes by the same road. And everyone does not exhibit the same details in the expression of their disease.

I have no research to back this up, but I am inclined to believe that high levels of stress in childhood is "interpreted" by the body as that most fundamental problem, food shortage. Its not illogical that the body would respond to stress by elevating insulin levels to partition carb intake to favor storing a disproportionate amount of those calories.

We have bodies that in one sense are performing exactly as designed. During summer, when fruit and fructose is abundant, we store all fructose intake to get us through the winter. During winter, when fructose foods are nonexistent, our carb intake is burned as needed. There is no bias for storage as that would make no sense. (Unless you are a hypoglycemic.) Where the problem arises is when an individual develops elevated insulin levels and we store more than just the fructose carbs. We store glucose too, until the circulating insulin has been expended. Its a beneficial system of carb handling that goes awry when insulin is too abundant. As for what causes the excess insulin secretion...that answer will be delayed if it is in fact elevated childhood stress. No one likes to blame the victim and diabetics that are interviewed will deny that that was ever at issue.

From my reading and personal experience I believe that diabetes is inherited! But, you can delay the onset of diabetes by your lifestyle, especially what you eat.

My pet peeve, is how the medical community uses the term Prediabetic! It suggests you can avoid getting the disease. I believe you can delay the onset, but if your blood sugar indicates you have a problem with sugar, you are then a lifetime diabetic, unless of course, they find a way to cure this disease!

I still find it rather amusing how people will grab at a theory of a cause for diabetes & run with it. That also applies to doctors & other (so-called) experts.
On his show, Dr. Oz was talking about the diabetes epidemic & people from the audience were asking him what the cause was. He said, "Well, smoking is one cause; smoking kills the pancreas."

So....diabetes should be more prevalent in smokers & less prevalent in non smokers?
I smoked for 10 years - I quit 37 years ago. My sister never smoked & was diagnosed with diabetes at age 27......30 years before I was.

Doctors & other experts like to sound super intelligent, so they're sure to have an answer for every question. When they don't, they'll just blame the patient; it's easy.
Heaven forbid they use the phrase, "We don't know." Intelligent people never say that....doesn't sound very intelligent.
