If you want to start with the app now, you could purchase the Unlimited challenges, and ask Marty to email you the app link. No need to use the FB group page…that is for community support if you want it. Then when the group moves to the non-FB network, (planned for early 2022, Rob). you could decide if that platform would work for you.

Also in the planning stage… at the moment, the DDF program only contains the spreadsheet. Marty will be setting the app up in the new year with a self-guided program that doesn't require the challenge for support. the DDF program is ideal for people who aren't on FB.

Just want to report that I am having great success with DDF. Using my blood glucose level to determine when to eat is really working. I have lost a few pounds but that's not really my focus although I started out with a goal of losing 5 pounds. I want to stabilize my blood sugar and develop a reliable hunger gauge and that is happening. I've done this while increasing my carbs slightly and decreasing the amount of fat I eat.I was already eating a lot of protein (learned that in the Masterclass). It seems to be working. I am beginning to be able to detect true hunger as determined by blood sugar level. You can teach an old dog new tricks.

I was doing really great until I got a bit crazy eating peanuts. Had a small binge. Now I feel like I'm starting over again. Also, I injured my hand and wrist and I'm taking NSAIDs and have to eat at times I'd rather fast so I can take my pain pills. So the last week I haven't made much progress on the scale. But my waking glucose for the last several days has been under 100! That is progress!

Nancy, congrats on the waking BG! Mine is stuck right around 100, 2 over, 2 under…the extra digit drives me crazy.

Did you take your BG after the peanut binge? It may be a food that could work for you. It's more fat than protein, I have to be careful of the amount of any nut, but this is a good time to check some of those previously forbidden foods. All of Part 5 in the manual on What to Eat has tips.

[QUOTE] WHAT to eat [FAQ Part 5]
Data-Driven Fasting helps you solve the WHEN to eat side of the nutrition equation. You can make a lot of progress just by waiting until your blood glucose fuel gauge indicates you need to refuel. To minimise ‘overwhelm’, we recommend you focus on chasing your trigger in Hunger Training until you feel you have mastered the process.
But eventually, WHAT you are eating becomes the limiting factor, and it can be helpful to understand how the food you eat affects your blood sugars and how to dial in your food choices to ensure you are giving your body what it needs to maximise satiety, tame the blood sugar rollercoaster and deplete the fuel in your system, so you are ready to eat again sooner.

Ohhh…I’ve got my Pom-poms ready for Onederland!

The moderator Dorrie, who lives in India, slipped into a 25 BMI this morning…her Fitbit calls that Ideal, not just plain Healthy. Her Fitbit history went back to 2015! It really is amazing that members not only break through long standing stalls but except for little breaks in between, keep going.
You will be there soon!
