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.

About the Author

Dr. Jason Fung completed medical school at the University of Toronto and a fellowship in nephrology at the University of California. He founded the Intensive Dietary Management Program in Toronto that provides a unique treatment focus for type 2 diabetes and obesity. Dr. Fung lives in Toronto.

Explains a lot


I found this to be very useful as I have struggled with being overweight most of my life at times I could believe he was watching my attempts to lose weight as he writes of how regular diets area doomed to fail. That was me. I am determined to try his method and find cutting out carbs and sugar not too difficult. My doctor suggested this book.
