Yeah i dont think food can explain a jump like that . It possible the body is struggling with that does for some reason . It could be a cortisol issue . Jesse had i higher fasting for the last couple months and went visit my mom in reno and she is perfect . Its usually the opposite so go figure . If anyone could tell me for sure what is occurring they would be a genius . I have been doing this for over 9 years and its still just an educated guess but i can tell you they can do just fine and live long lives with way less than being perfect
