    Here's another article that came out more recently:
    It deals mostly with mice, investigating many details that would be impossible with humans, then includes the results of a 3-month trial with a small number of humans.
    I was very pleased with my first attempt at a 5-day 800 cal whole food diet. My FBS had been running around 170, though was only 154 when I started. But by the end, it was down below 115. I'll keep on with this approach as I find it very doable. My second 5-day "fast" was less successful just because I was a lot sloppier. But it was very informative. I'm learning more about portion sizes and alcohol. Being low carb and unafraid of fat before I started made it relatively much easier to follow I'm sure.
    I'm off to check out your current thread. It was good to get your message. Thanks.

    Hi cathyy. I followed your conversation about the Newcastle Diet several years ago with considerable interest. I had found the ND myself some months ago and finally got up the motivation to try, starting it a week ago. But I tried it using regular food, not liquid meals. See William Ware's article here

    My diabetes history sounds much like yours, so I'm very interested in stopping the progression now if I can. So far it really hasn't been that hard which I attribute to (1) being keto-adapted and (2) getting my 800 calories while still eating low carb.

    I was appalled at the quite vigorous condemnation you received on this forum for reporting on what seemed to be a promising approach to reversing diabetes.
