    I have been doing 16/8 IF for almost a year and I give it credit for enabling me to push my A1c down to 4.5. In my case I usually eat breakfast (eggs and bacon) mid morning and then eat dinner in the early evening.

    I made this decision not because of Dr Fung but because I was observing that my blood glucose was not returning to normal after breakfast until sometime in the late afternoon. So if I ate lunch or snacked between meals, it would push my blood glucose up before dinner which in turn would result in higher PPs after dinner. With IF my blood glucose before each meal is close to normal (83 mg/dl - 4.6 mmol/l) which results in lower PPs after a meal.

    I even recently testing eating lunch and still observed the same pattern, so it appears that I still need to do IF.
