Wow! How exciting to start off the year with such an impactful interview! Bobbi was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in October 2021 with an A1c of 17.8. Right away, she knew that she needed to make some major changes. She immediately cut out sugar and adopted a low-carb diet. Then, in January 2023, she found intermittent fasting. Also, around that time, she met her now partner, Keith. Keith is a big influence in the intermittent fasting community and he helped her to adopt this lifestyle. Through diet and IF, Bobbi has been able to get her A1c down to 6.3, which is just amazing. In addition, sh ..read more

End of Year Update...Ozempic Update, Changes to my Fasting Schedule, New Pump Algorithm (iAPS - Loving it!), + Battling Sugar (Again)
The Fast Life with Diabetes-- Intermittent Fasting
by L Fisher
5M ago
This will be the final episode of the year and I just wanted to give you an update on a few things that have been going on my life. First, I have been on Ozempic for ~10 or 11 weeks at this point and I'll give you an update on my impressions of it to date. Second, I'll update you on my fasting protocol, which has changed largely due to the impact of Ozempic. Third, I am trying out a new algorithm for my diabetes management, called iAPS (Apple (i) Artificial Pancreas System). I haven't been using it for very long but I already like it very much. Lastly, I've been battling sugar (yet again!) May ..read more

Diabetes Sucks Update...My initial experiences with Ozempic and birth control...
The Fast Life with Diabetes-- Intermittent Fasting

Thank you all so much for your outpouring of support after my "Diabetes Sucks" episode a few weeks ago. While I haven't totally reversed my insulin resistance, I have been able to improve it. I suspect the cause of my insulin resistance is hormone related as I believe I am entering peri-menopause (I'm 43 years old). To counteract the insulin resistance, I have started on a birth control pill (Slynd) to regulate my cycle and Ozempic to improve insulin sensitivity. While neither is a magic bullet, they have helped. Thanks again for all of your support - it really means a lot to me ..read more

Adam Burns and Nyree Krikorian...Couple that Fasts! He has Type 1 and she has reversed pre-diabetes...great example of fasting teamwork!

What a treat it was to speak to Adam and Nyree! They have been married for 33 years and are such a great example of a couple working well together to achieve their goals. Adam has had Type 1 diabetes for the last 35 years and adopted a keto diet several years ago. He has since super charged his blood sugar management by adding fasting to his routine. Adam's last A1C was 5.6, which is very impressive. His wife, Nyree, was recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes, which was no surprise to her given her family history and her experience with gestational diabetes. Since finding fasting, she has been a ..read more

Randi Wipf...T1D that does ADF with Daily Injections, lots of discussion on the struggles of T1D and fasting...
The Fast Life with Diabetes-- Intermittent Fasting

I like Randi because she keeps it real. We all struggles as T1Ds to do many things, fasting included. Randi has had diabetes for 17 years and came to fasting about a year ago for both weight loss and better control over her blood sugars. After starting with a more relaxed protocol, Randi's fasting has now evolved into alternate day fasting. She also does multiple daily injections, which adds another layer of complexity to her fasting protocol. We dive deep on how she manages her insulin needs while doing longer fasts and we also talk about the struggles we all face as Type 1 diabetics. While R ..read more

What a joy it was to speak to Netta again! She is one of the leading authorities in the movement on how to reduce or eliminate sugar from your diet.

Sorry to be a downer but I owe it to you to be real. This past week has been terrible for me diabetes-wise. All of my settings seem to be wrong and I am forced to eat around the clock. As a result, I have gained 6 pounds in 1 week (ARGH!!!!). I have no idea how this will turn around but I wanted to give you a window into the struggle that I am facing currently. Maybe you are going through the same thing. I think it helps for all of us to know that we are not alone ..read more

It was such a treat to speak to Tracey! She was so generous with the details of her story. After struggling with her weight for most of her adult life, Tracey received a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes in 2019. However, she was determined not to go on medication. She tried various methods to lose weight and become more healthy. Nothing seemed to stick until she found clean fasting. Once she began clean fasting, the weight began to drop off and her A1c improved in a sustained way. Now, she's down 57 lbs (197 to 140lbs) and her A1c went from 6.4 at its highest down to 5.4 currently! Tracey shares a ..read more
