Fri, Mar 20 2:52pm · Diagnosed with PMR 2 1/2 years ago. How do I manage the extreme pain? in Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR)

Thanks, John! I've found that with a low-carb diet over time I have gotten to one meal a day, or sometimes two, and once in a while three. When you're fat-adapted you don't get the carb cravings. Sometimes I just get distracted and forget to eat. I know that sounds kind of crazy, but it's reality. Empty is a WAY different feeling than hungry, and I really don't get hungry much any more.

With limiting carbs you should see higher HDL (the good stuff) and lower triglycerides. It will be interesting to see what progress you can make in 6 weeks or so.

That's great progress, @johnbishop! Keep up the good work!

Juices have some of the highest sugar of any drink, so they will keep your blood sugar elevated.

Fasting doesn't need to be a lifelong commitment. Just start by skipping a meal or two. And here's my post about the experience my wife and I had with alternate day fasting for 10 weeks. https://social-media-university-global.org/2020/02/our-10-week-alternate-daily-fasting-experience/

Patients with diabetes definitely should consult with medical providers when considering fasting. They will need to adjust insulin and medications to prevent low blood sugar.

I understand the general sentiment @merpreb, but for fasting this is not the case. You can fast for the cost of water, black coffee or tea. Watch for my blog post about it tomorrow.

My next blog post will be on how my wife and I did our first 10-week intermittent fasting series…and will be absolutely free. In fact, you'll save money from the meals you don't eat. 😉
