Dr Fung makes his points succinctly and with well reasoned support. At the end of reading this book I wept a little because I have spent my entire life following the eat less move more diet without success. I have felt like a failure my entire life because I was unable to loseweight and keep it off following such a simple edict. I have started doing intermittent fasting and so far am losingweight, see how I go in six months and this book could be defined as life changing.
This book I needed to read a decade ago...have counted calories for 50 years and points and been to all diet clinics too...this is so easy to understand and so easy to do....IF is wonderful and I am doing well with it and my weight is moving....Dr Fung explains it all simply and my first weightlose came by just giving up sweetners.......just suddenly being told they raise insulin levels was the first step and been upward every since....if you are really over dieting and counting the calories or buying prepared diet food etc, this is the book for you....
Jason has literally saved my life. The key to losingweight, for me, was understanding WHY I was morbidly obese. Once I understood the biology everything else just fell into place. Brilliant read. A life changer.
This book is a must read for people trying to loseweight. The author easily explains what is really quite complex. I found it interesting and hard to put down (yes I know, it was nothing like my usual thrillers or science fiction).
