Nancy,

I suppose two things I can do is try to extend my overnight fast (not easy for me) and give up dairy. Any suggestions?


You may want to check out the Marty Kendall thread about Data Driven Fasting, starting post #48. Rather than push through a longer and uncomfortable fast, you determine what is a good Personalized fasting protocol. And be willing to prick your finger a lot to determine if dairy is really a problem. Iíve been doing this five weeks now, and maybe it is the novelty factor so I'm strict with the food, but it is working...slowly for me, and some rapid results for others in the program.

I wonder
Do you notice that your cravings increase with an increase in blood sugar values?

I ditto Janet - before instituting more fasting, why not do more blood sugar testing after eating?

It has been so long since i have tested my blood sugars, I don't remember how, but I am wondering if there is a correlation with cravings and blood sugar.

DDF is explained in the linked post, with studies On hunger.

You become hungrier as your blood sugar drops before eating. After establishing your baseline blood glucose trigger, you do not eat until BG is below that trigger. No need to take BG after eating once the trigger and problem foods are established in the first three days.
