An overview from Goodreads:
'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'.
Dr Jason Fung is a Canadian nephrologist and a world-leading expert on intermittent fasting and low carb, especially for treating people with type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, diabetes and obesity. He has written three best selling health books and co-founded the Intensive Dietary Management program.
