I did a quick search, and in the past 2 years we have had over 80 items on food choices and the best way to eat for diabetes. This does not even begin to include the ones we turned down. Often these ideas conflict, and experts flip-flop on what works best more often than a politician running for office.

Our publisher, Steve Freed, worked for many weeks with Mark P. Mattson, MD, from the National Institute of Health, to cut through all the recent dietary suggestions and look at the use of intermittent fasting. Along the way he dispelled some long-standing ideas of when to eat, how much to eat, and what to eat. His ideas, concepts and comments about the use of fasting for weight loss and glucose control may seem foreign to most of us. When he did his interview, Steve found that he had more questions than answers, and so he persuaded the good doctor to go in front of the camera and give us a series of videos explaining his interview and ideas. We have all that for you.
