With a foreword from Dr Jason Fung, author of The Obesity Code, this groundbreaking guide to intermittent fasting for women includes step-by-step advice for preventing and reversing metabolic disease.

As a teenager, Megan Ramos suffered from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and polycystic ovarian syndrome. By her mid-twenties, she had developed type 2 diabetes. But everything changed when she heard about intermittent fasting at the clinic where she was a researcher. Within six months of giving up snacks, adopting a diet high in natural fats and low in carbs, and fasting regularly for short periods, she reversed her metabolic conditions. And she began to counsel other people - especially women - about therapeutic fasting.

Today, Ramos has helped over 20,000 people improve their health through intermittent fasting. In The Essential Guide to Intermittent Fasting for Women, she shares what she's learned about fasting through clinical research, her own lived experience, and the experiences of the many women she's worked with. Women - juggling kids, careers, and their roles in their communities - are prone to stress, which drives up cortisol and estrogen levels in the body. Too much estrogen at any time is bad. But as we age, we produce less estradiol and more of its evil twin, estrone, which leads to weight gain, depression, and abnormal growths. Recognising this fact, Megan provides practical advice about when and what to eat, and how and when to fast, in ways that work with and support women first.

Industry Reviews
Praise for Life in the Fasting Lane-
'Dr Jason Fung and Megan Ramos are two of the world's most knowledgeable practitioners advocating the health-promoting value of scientifically-based fasting. In this unique collaboration they have partnered with Eve Mayer, herself a survivor of the inappropriate medical and surgical management of obesity, to produce a highly readable, state-of-the-art book describing all one needs to know to follow a safe and effective fasting program for optimising personal health. Be warned. It is a revolutionary book. It might just save your life.'
-Tim Noakes, emeritus professor, author of Lore of Running, and Real Food on Trial

Praise for Life in the Fasting Lane-
'As a family doctor, I've treated hundreds of patients suffering from obesity and its complications - most have tried all kinds of diets and exercise regimens, to no avail. These patients unfortunately received the wrong advice, for decades. To lose weight and keep it off, your hunger must be under control, which means you cannot just focus on what you eat, you must prioritise when you eat and don't eat. This book is a guide to sustainable weight loss. Read it. Change your life.'
-Dr Evelyne Bourdua-Roy, author of Eat Fat to Lose Weight with the Keto and Low Carb Diet

Praise for Life in the Fasting Lane-
'Life in the Fasting Lane offers a new look at the science of intermittent fasting through the lens of personal experience. Eve, Megan, and Dr Fung have written an easy-to-read primer on all things fasting- what it is, why you should care, and how to do it.'
-Benjamin T. Bikman, PhD, Associate Professor of Physiology and Developmental Biology at Brigham Young University
