Description

We are in the midst of an obesity epidemic, but despite being inundated with diet advice we are only getting fatter. We count calories and exercise regularly, yet still the pounds won't budge. Why?

In this highly enjoyable and provocative book, Dr Jason Fung sets out a groundbreaking new theory: that obesity is caused by our hormones rather than a lack of self-control.

He reveals that overproduction of insulin in the body is the root cause of obesity and obesity-related illnesses including type 2 diabetes and offers robust scientific evidence that reversing insulin resistance is the only way to lose weight in the long term.

It turns out that when we eat is just as important as what we eat, so in addition to his five basic steps - a set of lifelong eating 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.

FANTASTIC BOOK AND AUDIBLE READER

I thought this book was beautifully written, very easy to understand, very thorough, and well researched therefore grounded in science. I love how the author broke down each part of the problem that contribute to obesity and then finally offers appropriate and doable solutions with regard to managing the problem. I truly enjoyed the reader; The tone, inflection and speed with which he read was very appropriate and engaging. Truly, I would be happy if he read all the books I bought. to me:) I have already recommended this book to several people and colleagues. It reaffirmed things I was already aware of, cleared up things I was confused about, and offered new insights. I loved everything about it!!! Thank you so much for such an enjoyable read!!!

Made me truly understand...

This book made me truly understand the key elements of health and obesity! The added details made me understand many points other authors had made but that i hadn’t fully realized the significance of what they were saying. This book is mostly about the physiology at play and less about the diet. Although I’m a keto lifestyle advocate because it’s a good fit for me, it also demonstrated that it is possible to be healthy without being so strict on carbs depending on the type of carbs, the timing and what you eat with it. It helped make sense of why other cultures who have eaten lots of carbs in the past managed to be healthy. I have listened to it 3 times because there is a lot of information in this book. This is the best audiobook so far!

Super helpful

This book and way of life is a life changer. I could not have read it hard copy because I may have got lost in scientific terminology, and never finished it. Worth every penny!

A lesson on butchering pronunciation

Overall I found the book interesting and the information provided seemed to be evidence based, and as mentioned in the book, the author tried to use only peer reviewed data based on human trials. It was good to have the figures and charts that were referred to throughout the book via the online PDF made available.

The drawback would be in the narration production. It is well read and clear with interesting tone, but there were a few words that were remarkably mispronounced. Often it was almost comical on how badly words would be pronounced and butchered over and over again. Examples: Quinoa, Glycogen, many of the drug classes. Even words as simply as Mono-*. It was comical listening the the evolution the term sulfonylureas took. Pronounced numerous ways but never properly.

The mispronunciation distracted away from the quality of the information provided and it was clear that a medical professional was not involved during the production of the audio book. It was well below expectation I have for Audible.com products.

Definitely a must read (listen)!

Weight explained from every angle, including those avoided by most current weight management plans. I recommend it especially to those that are tired of failing.

You think you know, but you do not!

I was sockless while listening to this book because the information continued to blow my socks off!
As a health care practitioner for over 13 yrs and dieter for longer than that, I thought I was knowledgeable. I thought I knew what I was doing, but alas I had not been given the correct info, it seems very few ppl had.
My eyes have been opened,
with intermittent fasting I have lost 20 pounds after my weight watchers stopped working.
My energy is now more consistent throughout the day, I’m happier, and I hold a much more clear understanding of what my body needs.
Highly recommend!

Life changing listen

The way the various studies referenced throughout the book are presented makes it simple to understand and ingest the information; and all put together makes it clear why traditional dieting doesn’t work. Halfway through the book I was already making changes to my dietary choices.

The performance by the narrator Brian Nishii (yes, performance even though it’s a diet book) was excellent and even though it’s full of “data” and study results, he made it an engaging experience.

Finally- an explanation that makes sense

The best book I have ever read on diet, obesity, and the science between eating and weight gain. Clearly explained and impressively supported with scientific data, historical facts, and interesting analogies. The book is logical and often humorous. The tone is friendly and empathetic, the material compelling. “Insulin causes obesity”. It’s time we all knew this- and this book explains what to do about it.

Excellent Book

The best book on obesity ever. Clear and concise and scientific. Makes so much sense. I think the insulin story is the best part. Only trouble is that 70% of insulin secretion is genetically determined and only 30% is under our control :-( Would be nice to be able to access the forward by Tim Noakes and the tables on fasting which are inaccessible on the audio book.

Game changer

Wow - this book has made me absolutely re-evaluate my approach to health. This was so interesting and easy to follow and I really enjoyed the narration. Thank you Dr Fung - I learned so much in the time it took me to listen to this book especially about insulin resistance. So much suddenly makes sense.

Filled with up to date 2016 info

Very informative book and how insulin production and receptors work was very clear. Didn't pull punchs on past authors he didn't agree with.

Brilliant!

This book releases you from the chains of 'You must have 3 meals a day and snacks' which is the mantra of nutritionists and governments. Try it, it will change your life.
