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 readable 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 life-long 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.

Review quote

'In The Obesity Code, Dr. Jason Fung triumphs in explaining the core underlying causes of obesity and manages to simplify it in a way that anybody can understand. If more doctors and people were able to understand these causes and implement Dr. Fung's actionable advice then we would be able to start reversing the obesity epidemic tomorrow.' -- Sam Feltham, USA Today, World Fitness Elite Trainer of the Year 'Dr. Jason Fung's explanation of insulin resistance and the accompanying insulin model of obesity is original, brilliant and game changing.' -- Zoe Harcombe, author of The Harcombe Diet and The Obesity Epidemic 'A fantastic book that exposes some of the world's most pervasive myths about obesity and weight management. A must read for anyone interested in the science of diet.' -- Kris Gunnars, nutrition researcher '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.' -- Dr Andreas Eenfeldt, Founder of Dietdoctor.com 'Fung zeroes in on why insulin resistance has become so prevalent and offers specific outside-the-box solutions that have emerged as the key to maximizing health.' -- Jimmy Moore * author, Keto Clarity and Cholesterol Clarity *
