I would like to try a form of fasting but my body wouldn't go along with it. In 1992 I was fasting along with several coworkers on a new fasting diet and it was discovered that I have an insulin producing tumor called an insulinoma that only gives me grief when I try to diet. An insulinoma is a relatively small tumor, about 1", and can be benign or malignant...only 10% are, and usually occur in the GI tract...most on the pancreas. Mine has never been found on CT or MRI and Doc told me if I was lucky it would never grow big enough to be found...people die with the tumor not from the tumor.
Anyway back to the fasting...I am going to try the Time-Restricted Feeding form of fasting for as long as I can tolerate it or until I notice a change in my immune system. I am so tired of being tired! It won't be a big deal for me because I don't normally eat until later in the day so restricting myself to food only between say 2pm and 10pm daily might show a difference. I plan on eating a lot more healthier foods and staying away from wasted calories...hmmm...maybe I will limit it to 1000 cals per day.
I will report back and tell you what I find out as I go along.
