One of a handful of books I've read in my life that's worth re-reading to find new gems. I don't know that Dr. Fung has "the Answer", if it really exists, but his idea of obesity as a multi-factorial, primarily hormone-driven condition seems to have the ring of truth. He deftly presents study after study after study that reinforces how he arrived at his conclusions. Highly recommended.
About This Item
-- Andreas Eenfeldt, MD, Founder of dietdoctor.com
Everything you believe about how to lose weight is wrong. Weight gain and obesity are driven by hormones--in everyone--and only by understanding the effects of insulin and insulin resistance can we achieve lasting weight loss.
In this highly readable and provocative book, Dr. Jason Fung sets out an original, robust theory of obesity that provides startling insights into proper nutrition. In addition to his five basic steps, a set of lifelong habits that will improve your health and control your insulin levels, Dr. Fung explains how to use intermittent fasting to break the cycle of insulin resistance and reach a healthy weight--for good.• Author: Jason Fung • ISBN:9781771641258 • Format:Paperback • Publication Date:2016-03-01
