This is by far the most effective technique at blood sugar control. Check out my morning blood sugar readings after stopping to eat by 6pm versus eating dinner at 8pm the night before…

A late dinner has a massive impact on blood sugars and insulin needs/secretion. You will see these results on day 1 of intermittent fasting. Here are the instructions:
Hold out on eating till 11am or noon if possible. Ideally till after your morning workout. This is easy to do if you don’t have a single bite of food. Once you eat, you will awake the grelin (hunger) hormone and it will want more food. You may have green vegetable juices, fresh lemonade (see recipe link) tea and coffee. Green vegetable juices can still raise your sugars so make sure you are checking before and after the juice to see the effect on your body.
Enjoy health foods from 11-7pm. Stop eating at 7. Consider it a hard stop. And check your thoughts. Do you have to satisfy EVERY craving? No… most likely the thought will pass. If it doesn’t then first drink a full glass of water. If you are still hungry make my miso soup, homemade lemonade or fresh mint (or any herbal) tea. You will feel satisfied. Brush your teeth and remove yourself from the kitchen area. Get in bed at 8 if you have to till you get used to stopping to eat early.
***Check your blood sugars often throughout this adjustment period. You will be fascinated how quickly your body responds to intermittent fasting.
