    I have a question -- i am diabetic this time i stopped taking medication i fill much better
    the reason is i am fasting . the first day i was fasting 72 hours after a week again i did the same
    thing i loose 12 lb with in 2 weeks. the way of fasting is no solid food but only water/liquid/.
    when i measure my glucose before fasting it was 300 after fasting it comes down 180 .
    is there a way of standard fasting system; like taking diet foods ones a day, ie.. salad i need your advice
    piease . i have been with diabetic for 16 years.

    There is no standard way of fasting, there are several different "methods". When you do eat, try to keep the meals low carb/high fat. We have many lchf recipes available!

    At 1:23, Dr. Fung says, "...Insulin...turns on lipolysis. You burn fat..."

    What is he talking about? Insulin inhibits lipolysis.

    Even our side censors comments. Why would
    Dr. Fung say, "...insulin...turns on lipolysis. You burn fat..."
    Why would he say that? Does anybody listen critically?
    Why, again, was my second comment about this removed?

    Why just take my comments down? Why not
    address my question?

    I am not sure what happened with your other comment but I did not remove it. I apologize for the delay in responding to you. I have reached out to others to find an answer for you. It may have been a misstatement and if so, we will work to clarify it. Thank you!
  8. bill,
    I think he simply misspoke and missed a word – that happens to the best of us.

    Right before this sentence he was talking about lowering insulin, and I think at 1:23 he meant to say that again ("lowering insulin", rather than "insulin"). Otherwise it clearly makes no sense.
