Summary

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.

Superb and a Game Changer.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. The detail and the in depth explanations of physiolog and aetiology of obesity is second to none in my opinion. The delivery of information is set out in such a way that you cannot fail to understand the implications.

An extremely methodical written book. Repeats itself just enough to get the point to hit home. I listened at the slowest setting to absorb it more readily.

I have total Faith that Dr Fung has done his research and constantly refers to academic papers and critically analyses them in a manner that I would do myself. This gives me the confidence to trust his opinions without me having to spend the time trawling the internet looking for others opinions. I still do that but after reading the book I already know the answers.

It really is exceptional and would recommend to anyone not just to people trying to lose weight or cure their diabetes.

The narrator is also absolutely superb. This is how I would imagine Dr Fung reading it himself but possible better as it is minus the "right" after nearly every sentence. Just a small critique after Listening to lots of Dr Fung podcasts and YouTube postings.

All round 5 stars and intend on listening to this repeatedly until the belly fat has gone!!
