@Lloydmom If you wanted to, you could do something like a protein sparing modified fast and probably get some of the fasting benefits that way. (Basically eat skinless chicken and broccoli and a tiny amount of olive oil or fish oil to get your essential fatty acids.)
Another thing you might consider (kind of a pain in the ass, but doable) is getting a lancet and glucometer (they’re under $10) and test strips. In general people who don’t inject insulin don’t get severe (as in deadly) hypoglycemia. But if you were worried about it you could test a drop of blood throughout the day and see how low you’re actually getting. As soon as you’ve switched over into fasting mode your liver should be putting out glucose and you should start burning fat stores to maintain your blood sugar.
Some people get continuous glucose monitors (which have never appealed to me even though I’m Type 1 Diabetic). They’re really cool, you can see your blood sugar in real time on your phone. I just hate the idea of having anything stuck to my skin like that and they cost more than I want to spend.
Usually fasting stabilizes blood sugar. Hypoglycemia in non-diabetcs tends to be more of insulin over-shooting after having carbs. For example you have toast and orange juice and some yogurt, your blood sugar spikes up, your pancreas puts out a ton of insulin to deal with it, the blood sugar comes crashing down. When you’re fasting there’s no reason for your pancreas to be putting out a lot of insulin, fasting tends to help pre-diabetes and a bunch of other medical issues (always worth checking with your doctor first before you do anything.)
