Books By Dr. Jason Fung
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.
Real-life advice and guidelines to take the guesswork and the fear out of fasting.
Fasting is emerging as one of the most exciting medical advancements in recent memory. Its list of benefits extends far beyond weight loss and includes improved cardiovascular health, lower blood pressure, protection against cancer and better cognitive function.
While many of us may be able to handle the physical effects of fasting, the mental and social challenges are often daunting. There are so many opportunities to eat during the day, and sometimes it's rude not to participate in meals. what do you do with the time you used to spend eating? How do you navigate social situations while fasting? How can a food addict mentally prepare for a fast?
Life in the Fasting Lane fills all of these gaps, and more, by bringing together three leading voices in the fasting community to provide a book written for both the body and the mind, helping people cope with all aspects - physical, social, emotional, medical - of fasting. It blends cutting-edge medical and scientific information about fasting with the perspective of a patient who has battled obesity the majority of her adult life.
From acclaimed author of The Obesity Code, a revolutionary guide to reversing diabetes.
In 2016, acclaimed author Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his bestselling book, The Obesity Code. Now he’s set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes. The Diabetes Code is a thought-provoking new look at this ancient disease, and a revolutionary guide to naturally reversing its course.
Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease — a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting — not medication.
There has never been a more urgent time to take action against what is fast becoming a global epidemic. But Dr. Fung is confident that ‘the secret to reversing type 2 diabetes is within our grasp.’
In fact, Toronto-based nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung has used a variety of fasting protocols with more than 1,000 patients, with fantastic success. In The Complete Guide to Fasting, he has teamed up with international bestselling author and veteran health podcaster Jimmy Moore to explain what fasting is really about, why it’s so important, and how to fast in a way that improves health.
Together, they make fasting as a therapeutic approach both practical and easy to understand. The Complete Guide to Fasting explains:
• why fasting is actually good for health
• who can benefit from fasting (and who won’t)
• the history of fasting
• the various ways to fast: intermittent, alternate-day, and extended fasting
• what to expect when starting to fast
• how to track progress while fasting
• the weight loss effects of fasting
• how to ward off potential negative effects from fasting
The book also provides tools to help readers get started and get through their fasts, including a 7-Day Kick-Start Fasting Plan and healing liquid recipes.
Our understanding of cancer is slowly undergoing a revolution, allowing for the development of more effective treatments. For the first time ever, the death rate from cancer is showing a steady decline … but the ‘War on Cancer’ has hardly been won.
In The Cancer Code, Dr Jason Fung offers a revolutionary new understanding of this invasive, often fatal disease – what it is, how it manifests and why it is so challenging to treat. In this rousing narrative, Dr Fung identifies the medical community’s many missteps in cancer research – in particular, its focus on genetics, or what he terms the ‘seed’ of cancer, at the expense of examining the ‘soil,’ or the conditions under which cancer flourishes. Dr Fung – whose ground-breaking work in the treatment of obesity and diabetes has won him international acclaim – suggests that the primary disease pathway of cancer is caused by the dysregulation of insulin. In fact, obesity and type 2 diabetes significantly increase an individual’s risk of cancer.
In this accessible read, Dr Fung provides a new paradigm for dealing with cancer, with recommendations for what we can do to create a hostile soil for this dangerous seed. One such strategy is intermittent fasting, which reduces blood glucose, lowering insulin levels. Another, eliminating intake of insulin-stimulating foods, such as sugar and refined carbohydrates.
For hundreds of years, cancer has been portrayed as a foreign invader we’ve been powerless to stop. By reshaping our view of cancer as an internal uprising of our own healthy cells, we can begin to take back control. The seed of cancer may exist in all of us, but the power to change the soil is in our hands.
