This week, IDM patient Kim Demarest shares her non-scale victories. We focus on benefits of fasting and lowering insulin other than purely weight loss. At the same time, Professor Tim Noakes and Dr. Aseem Malhotra talk about her struggles: trying to exercise your way out of a bad diet, and the ghost of high cholesterol. Dr. Jason Fung talks about her non-scale victories including increased mental acuity and increased body heat.
