01-16.64 FASTING IS THE most efficient and consistent strategy to decrease insulin levels

QUOTE from Dr Fung (emphasis mine): 

The human body is well adapted for dealing with the absence of food. What we’re describing here is the process the body undergoes to switch from burning glucose (short term) to burning fat (long term). Fat is simply the body’s stored food energy. In times of food scarcity, stored food (fat) is naturally released to fill the void. The body does not “burn muscle” in an effort to feed itself until all the fat stores are used. It’s crucial to note that all these beneficial adaptive changes do not occur in the caloric-reduction diet strategy. 

HOW YOUR HORMONES ADAPT TO FASTING Insulin 

FASTING IS THE most efficient and consistent strategy to decrease insulin levels, a fact first noted decades ago6 and widely accepted as true. All foods raise insulin; therefore, the most effective method of reducing insulin is to avoid all foods.” [1]
