The Obesity Code

by Jason Fung

The Obesity Code

Jason Fung

Overview

It's understandable to feel confused over how to maintain a healthy weight. From fad diets to extreme exercise, the health industry is constantly changing its recommendations.

Dr. Jason Fung wants to make it crystal clear in The Obesity Code, a guide to intermittent fasting. Fung explains what's wrong with the 'calories in, calories out' method of weight loss, along with misconceptions about how much genetics factor into obesity.

Before he was an intermittent fasting advocate, Fung specialized in treating kidney disease. The doctor's insights into dieting come from years of treating failing kidneys, which were often a result of type two diabetes and insulin resistance. In The Obesity Code, Fung collates his knowledge to teach readers how to successfully lose weight and maintain their ideal weight over the long term.

"If we want to reduce obesity, we need to focus on what makes us obese. If we spend all our money, research, time, and mental energy focused on exercise, we will have no resources left with which to actually fight obesity."
