    Oddly the best book on dieting I have read. Much appreciated point that at the moment, as far as diets, things are complicated, and science still has much work to do. Moral of the story is.. starve a bit - its natural. ( )

    Dr. Fung goes into great detail about how we ended up with the products in our grocery stores. Spoiler alert - it is more about what you eat than how much you eat, not all calories are the same. I enjoyed the educational experience of the book. ( )

    I don't know why I bought this book but I already had it. I recently started listening to the Low Carb MD podcast and Jason Fung was part of the second episode. Pretty interesting way of looking at why low carb helps people as well as why fasting helps. ( )

    A brilliant and strangely addictive read from a Dr not afraid to take on big pharma/food manufacturers. He breaks down all previous causes of Obesity and not afraid to also have a go at some of the more recent diet trends that people on social media enthral about e.g. Keto et al .

    As he explains, you don't become obese over night or even over a year, it's a long process and their are various causes.

    The main issue for your health though is insulin resistance which after this book, you'll completely understand and be able to lecture your work colleagues/family at length about :).

    Your (grand)parents ate 3 meals a day and that was it for the most part; going back say a few hundred years, 3 meals for the average peasant would be a laughable concept. The concept of constantly elevated Blood sugar back then would be a problem for the King alone.

    It's def worth reading regardless of whether you wish to lose weight or not - the key take-aways are as is often/always the case basic - and stuff that everyone really knows - e.g. stay off the "processed" carbs i.e. sugar, don't eat constantly (so blood sugar doesn't remain elevated - hence insulin resistance) and that fasting isn't going to kill you and helps the body in a number of ways - autophagy / lowering blood sugar levels / training your body to stop feeling hungry when it doesn't get something every couple of hours.

    Your ancestors worked 8h+ day doing hard physical labour outdoors on a bowl of gruel if they were lucky - you don't require 500 calories of sugar to attend yet another mind-numbing meeting at work....although sometimes as we all know esp when HR are involved it really really helps ;)

    I'm certainly guilty of the excess sugar and stuffing my face at all times (ahem) so will try to put down those tempting biscuits that go so so well with a brew.

    I've had a decent share over the years to put it mildly so y'know maybe - he says looking at the last double choc cookie on a plate whispering sweet nothings at me. ( )

    This book by Jason Fung is essential reading. Many of us will read the book, cheer and put it aside. For those who follow all - or most - of the advice, there are benefits to be found.

    He gives his recommendations at the end of the book, which may seem simplistic. You may wonder why you had to read the book to read recommendations you can get from the internet.

    If you don't read the book, you will not understand the science and logic behind the reasoning.

    Jason Fung's writing is direct. He can condense science into readable and understandable chunks. The book is accessible to anyone with some patience. You always need some patience, ( )

    The biological parents had very little or nothing to do with raising these children, or teaching them nutritional values or attitudes toward exercise. Yet the tendency toward obesity followed them like ducklings.
    Approximately 70 percent of the variance in obesity is familial.
    Seventy percent.
    Seventy percent of your tendency to gain weight is determined by your parentage. Obesity is overwhelmingly inherited.
    However, it is immediately clear that inheritance cannot be the sole factor leading to the obesity epidemic. The incidence of obesity has been relatively stable through the decades. Most of the obesity epidemic materialized within a single generation. Our genes have not changed in that time span.
    the root cause of obesity is a complex hormonal imbalance with high blood insulin as its central feature.
    The hormonal profile of a baby is influenced by the environment in the mother's body before birth, setting up a tendency for high insulin levels and associated obesity later in life.
