Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his best-selling book, The Obesity Code. Now he has set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes.
Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease - a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, as Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting - not medication.

Potentially life changing.
Dr. Fung has admirably learned from his own (indeed, virtually the entire medical professions') long established "mistakes" and very probably - through logical progression - developed a cure. Major congratulations are due!

Thank you Dr Fung for your wonderful book. I think that this knowledge is just what I was missing. You make it so clear. It is a wonderful, much needed reply to an enormous health issue so many of us are facing. As you say....a paradigm shift! Congratulations!

This book could save your life
Dr. Jason Fung is changing the world one patient at a time. His first book, The Obesity Code, saved my life. Literally. I was a morbidly obese type 2 diabetic with no hope of reversing my fate when I stumbled upon the Obesity Code in July 2017. Nine months later, I am down 90lbs and no longer diabetic. Everything about my health improved since reading Fung's simple yet powerful advice.
This book is just as revolutionary, but focuses more on diabetes rather than obesity -- though Fung illustrates that both of these are just different manifestations if the same underlying disease. if you are living with T2 diabetes, you MUST read this book. You will be amazed at how quickly and effortlessly you can turn your life around. Even if you're NOT diagnosed T2D, your lifestyle may be putting you on a path to this deadly disease -- some estimate that up to 2/3 of the population are prediabetic or worse -- and this book will teach you how to halt that deadly progression.
They say that if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. This is one of those rare and wonderful exceptions to that rule.

Game Plan for Diabetes and Obesity Tx
Another wonderful and straight forward book by Jason Fung, MD. As a family doctor I see the ravages of diabetes every day in my patients from diabetes. Once you see an amputated appendage you never forget it. This book is my game plan for helping avoid the ravages of diabetes. I pre-ordered multiple copies and have given them to my medical colleagues already. Doctors need data! Thank you Dr. Fung for giving us the data to finally treat type 2 diabetes as the nutritional disease it as always been.
