The landmark book from New York Times-bestselling author Dr. Jason Fung, one of the world's leading experts on intermittent fasting for weight-loss and longevity, whose 5-step plan has helped thousands of people lose weight and achieve lasting health.
“Not only full of insights but also surprisingly funny. Read it to understand why the world became fat, how to reverse the epidemic—and how to stay thin yourself.”
—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.

This truth about obesity is finally coming to light! Thank you Dr. Fund for your research and for sharing this information. For once in my life I feel like I'm not abnormal. I just have a sensitivity to insulin that was being worsened by doing everything the so-called experts told me to. But no more! I'm now on a LHCF diet and I'm the healthiest I've ever been!
Funny and informative!
Easy to read book that explains the science behind why some people get obese and what to do about it. The best part is that Dr Fung never once talks about fat people like we are the problem. We are not. We are products of our environment and mis-information. He's doing his part to fix it. Thank you! For once in my life I don't feel like a failure about my body.
This book is by far the best informational book I’ve read.Dr.Fung and his colleagues did an exceptional job.
