Description

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.

    I am a physician and deal day in and day out with patients that battle obesity and diabetes with little improvement despite repeated visits in the office with re-educating them about weight loss methods (decrease calories and exercise more). My default reason for their failure has been to blame the patient for obviously ‘not following directions’. Now I know why they continue to fail. The Obesity Code completely changed my thinking about weight loss. I too have struggled with the ‘calories in less than calories out’ and likewise would eventually fail. Taking Dr. Fung’s advice, I have finally lost the weight and kept it off (and my fatty liver resolved as well!) The medical field needs to completely re-educate itself about the hormonal cause of obesity so we can better treat our patients.

    Unbelievable! Groundbreaking. Proves why ‘counting calories’ never works. Clearly presents the true science that obesity is a hormonal imbalance which can be easily corrected. So grateful for this book. It may have saved my life.

    Everything you need to know about health and wellness in a single source, summed up perfectly in a refreshingly honest, blunt and appropriately humorous writing style. Changed my entire outlook on weight challenges and perception of the body. 10/10!

    This is the most in depth explanation of weight gain that I have read so far. I believe it surpasses all other books on the subject of weight control.

    As a physician this should be required reading in medical school as well as high school/colleges.
