Must Read – The Obesity Code, Jason Fung

The Obesity Code RS CC 2

A bit of a late post this week but I just had to finish The Obesity Code by Jason Fung so I could let you all know about it. It doesn’t matter where you live in the world, if you have always struggled with your weight, if you are concerned about your insulin levels, insulin resistance, developing type 2 diabetes or if you have a heartbeat, I highly recommend this book!!!! Jason Fung does an incredible job explaining the cause and effect of Insulin on the human body. He goes back through years of medical case studies and research and summarises these studies to prove that we have all been following bad advice (for example the push to eat low fat products instead of high fat) and, now that we know the truth how to choose a different path to good health instead of obesity and illness. Jason shows that obesity is caused by hormones and how a constantly high level of insulin in the body can lead to insulin resistance and obesity. He talks about why you should avoid snacking, the benefits of fasting and what foods to eat and when to eat them to keep your insulin levels low.  

The say Knowledge is Power, and this book arms you with a massive amount of information that you need to know for yourself and your family. Everything I read in this book made sense. After being on many high carb, low fat diets over the past 20 years, I now finally understand why none of them worked and why I’ve managed to lose 17kg on a LCHF diet and why I’ve kept it off.  Now I have more knowledge I can use this to ensure that the next 40 years of my life is focused on health, weight loss and wellness for myself and my family!!! Grab an e-book on Amazon, Kindle, IBooks or get yourself an old school paper copy online at Book Depository, FishPond or your favourite book retailer. It will be worth every cent! Highly Recommended!!! Enjoy!!

    1. HI Alexx, I will definately look at the guide you mentioned. I haven’t tried fasting intentionally, more found that when I was in Ketosis I just didn’t really feel like eating in the mornings and was fine to go to lunch, and I found that sometimes I was almost forcing myself to eat Breakfast. Reading this book helped make sense of it. Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll definately give it a read.
