Why you’ve never been able to lose weight, and how that can change now

Everything you believe about how to lose weight is wrong. Weight gain and obesity are driven by hormones—in everyone—and only by understanding the effects of insulin and insulin resistance can we achieve lasting weight loss.

In this highly readable and provocative book, Dr. Jason Fung sets out an original, robust theory of obesity that provides startling insights into proper nutrition. In addition to his five basic steps, a set of lifelong 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.

“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

Dr. Jason Fung completed medical school at the University of Toronto before heading to the University of California, Los Angeles, to complete his fellowship in nephrology. Currently practicing in Toronto, Canada, as chief in the Department of Medicine in a major hospital, he founded the Intensive Dietary Management Clinic that provides a unique treatment focus for Type 2 diabetes and obesity.

Timothy Noakes is Professor of Exercise and Sports Science at the University of Cape Town. He started the Noakes Foundation in 2012, and has dedicated his life to opening people's eyes to the myth of low-fat eating and the nutritional and environmental crisis it has led us to.
