The purpose of this study is to establish safety of biweekly intermittent fasting in the setting of type 2 diabetes mellitus or prediabetes under treatment with non-hypoglycemic agents (e.g. metformin).
This study is proposed as a prospective interventional cohort safety study for biweekly intermittent fasting. In the effort to improve compliance of lifetime dietary change, the version of 5:2 intermittent fasting to be applied in this study will be somewhat less intensive than implemented then what has been proposed in some recent, similar studies. On fasting days, instead of limiting the subject to a specific calorie count, the subject will be instead instructed to skip either the first or last meal of the day in order to complete a 12 to 16 hour fast, during which time they are allowed drink water or any non-caloric beverage of their choice, but not consume any calories. Furthermore, the patient will be instructed for their remaining 2 meals to consume no more than they would on a normal, non-fasting day.
