Goal: To explore the possibilities of Intermittent Fasting and its effects on diabetes, and to determine whether some level of fasting might be appropriate for you.
April 30 is National Day of Fasting and Prayer, proclaimed by President Abraham Lincoln on March 30, 1863. So it seemed appropriate to focus on Intermittent Fasting during the month of April. At its most simplistic, one form of Intermittent Fasting is to eat an early supper (be done by 6 p.m.) and have nothing to eat between supper and breakfast the next morning.
If you are a religious person who observes Lent, you could integrate a fasting protocol. Just a thought.
What is Intermittent Fasting?
