Tracy, a Type-1 diabetic, maintained the diet without requiring her usual three times daily insulinInsulin is a hormone made by the pancreas. It is responsible for making the body’s cells absorb glucose (sugar) from the blood…. top ups illustrating how powerful this approach is for controlling blood sugar as your body switches over into producing ketones, as shown in the graph below.
Everyone was in ketosis within 24 hours and in the autophagy zone on days 3,4 and 5, with blood ketone levels being at least half glucose levels.
Energy scores went from 4.7 out of 10 to 7.2 out of 10; pain from 3.8 to 7 and brain fog from 3.8 to 6 out of 10. But the benefits of ‘autophagy’ comes in the weeks that follow as the body builds new energy factories, the mitochondria in cells.
We had great massages, walks, talks, hot tub sessions looking out over the Black Mountains with a daily chorus of birds, including cuckoos. We saw wild horses, deer and even an otter and a partridge!
