During fasting, when we restrict the intake of food, our body tissues do not have any other choice but to burn the accumulated fat for energy. The fat deposits become the fuel for the cells to operate. As a result, the size of fat droplets becomes smaller. When the lipid droplets in the muscles and liver become smaller, they become more responsive to insulin. In other words, when the fat droplets shrink in size, insulin becomes more powerful. Thus, intermittent fasting is one of the most efficient insulin stabilizers to control glucose fluctuations.

Your glycogen ( storage form of the glucose in the liver and muscles) can be used up during fasting and thus increasing insulin sensitivity.

Also, eating in the morning and spending the rest of the day fasting improves blood sugar control ,blood pressure and oxidative stress even if one doesn't change the diet.

Fasting isn't only meant for people suffering from diabetes but to all people since its a precaution measure.
