From acclaimed author Dr. Jason Fung, a revolutionary guide to reversing diabetes.
In 2016, Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his bestselling book, The Obesity Code. Now he's 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, 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.
In The Diabetes Code, Dr. Fung proposes a new, evidence-based way to break the cycle of high blood glucose and increased insulin resistance. Drawing from the latest in medical research, he outlines the impact of diet and lifestyle in type 2 diabetes and offers simple, easy-to-follow advice for preventing and reversing its course, complete with helpful charts and illustrations.
Dr. Jason Fung is recognized as one of the world's leading experts on fasting for weight loss and diabetes reversal, and his work has been featured in outlets such as the Atlantic, the New York Post, Forbes, the Daily Mail, and Fox News. He is the author of several books, including The Complete Guide to Fasting (co-authored with Jimmy Moore) and the bestselling The Obesity Code. He lives in Toronto, ON.
