41 N+S But the bottom line comes to this…

QUOTE from Dr Fung (emphasis mine): 

“If you are taking prescription medications, you should seek the advice of a physician. But the bottom line comes to this.

If you don’t eat, will your blood sugars come down? Of course.

If you don’t eat, will you lose weight? Of course.

So, what’s the problem? None that I can see.” [1]

NOTE (my commentary)


If you don’t eat


So, what’s the problem? None that I can see.



What gets my attention?
Do I understand the need or problem?
Do I understand the potential solution?
Do I understand how to apply that strategy?
What questions do I have for the experts? What might be the answers?
Who needs to hear this?
What do I do next?
