My fasting blood sugar this morning was 128 - not bad. Not great but not bad.
If you haven't discovered marksdailyapple.com yet, I highly recommend that you check it out. He promotes a very low carb diet and exercise and I find his articles really helpful.
One topic he discusses on occasion is intermittent fasting (IF). There are a few ways to do IF. One is to do a juice fast for a week perhaps with every change in the season. One way is to not eat solid foods one day a week, say on Sundays. The third way is to limit the hours that you eat everyday. Mark suggests eating only between the hours of noon and 8:00 pm for this type of IF.
He discusses the benefits of IF, so check it out if you want to find out what they are. The logic that appeals to me is that our ancestors did not have refrigerators and freezers, so obviously they practiced IF (by necessity). And also, digestion takes a lot of energy so the more time we free our bodies from having to digest the more time it has to heal and detox.
I have elected to only eat (very low carb) between noon and 8:00 pm starting on the 1st. I believe this approach works best with Type 1 Diabetes. Of course, if my sugar starts to crash I will eat no matter what time it is.
But that was not my new year's resolution - that was to record less shows on the DVR. I have cancelled lots of shows and kept only the ones I 'love'. I am hoping to open up time in my life for more exercise.
