We often direct new members to the Diet Doctor's site for a good explanation of how to begin the LCHF way of eating.

Here's the text of the book - for those of us who don't have a device for downloading a book.

for us,the purpose of intermittent fasting is to deplete the stored glycogen , be it in the liver or the muscle. Having burn out all the glycogen (stored sugar), the body will access the body fat. Henceforth the body syntheses ATP by burning fat instead of burning glucose , minimizing the use of insulin. Over time , insulin resistant will no longer be a problem.
If we have abundant of glycogen in the body, Ketosis ( fat burning) is impossible.

VeeJay - the link didn't work for me. Might be the only way to go in is to click on the 'Look Inside' by the book at glwilso8's link. Or else I have too many blockers installed!

Fixed it - posted a different site (which is better anyway).

Edit: Well, I thought it was good, but not so. Will continue to look for it.

Found a good link and put in the post above, as well as here

Nowadays I check my blood sugar level and ketone level once in a while. To be in the state of ketosis, the ketone meter must read in between 1-3. If it is less than 1, i will lengthen my fasting to restore it.

Well explained.

A question: Some people experience a very high rise in blood sugar in the morning (Dawn Phenomenon) that continues to rise unless they eat a meal. Others, like myself, experience only a moderate rise which will go back down after an hour or so. What is your experience with the fasting you do. Does your BG rise high the first few hours? Does it tend to develop less of a rise after doing IF for a while?

May be during the first few days of my intensive treatment phase, I experience Dawn Phenomenon. For me , the lowest blood sugar level is the morning fasting blood test, and it stays rather flat throughout the day, in between roughly 4.9 - 6.5 mmol/l . If the glycogen level is low, before meal : 6.1 , immediately after my lunch : 6.1 or 6.2 , virtually unmoved. I like to measure the blood sugar level 5 mins after my meal, just to ensure the food i eat is right for me, not 2 hrs later.

even the mixed veg salad lunch is well exceed the 50 carbs limit, but those complex carbs never raise the blood sugar. This has been so for the last 4 months.
