Although there may be some value in intermittent fasting in and of itself, and there certainly is value in both cardio and strength training; if the goal is to reduce insulin levels and decrease HA1c as originally posted, a more direct approach is to remove carbohydrates from the diet. Particularly if you get down to a carbohydrate intake that leads to ketosis.

Its actually more like 4%, but what I was trying to imply was to just cut/reduce calories vs eliminating them entirely. You are correct that low levels of body fat that body builders get down to for a show is not healthy for very long.

Doing things today that others won't, to do things tomorrow that others can't. Of course I'm referring to workouts, not robbing banks.
