After having little or no results from just about every diet you’ve tried, you may be wondering if there is a secret code that you haven’t yet cracked. You might be confused when you find out that everything you’ve ever known or thought about when it comes to weight loss – is wrong.
Dr. Jason Fung reveals the secrets you may be waiting for in his book, The Obesity Code. Some of the secrets may not come as a shock to you, while others may open your eyes to gaining success with weight loss.
When you put all the information contained in this book together, you’ll know the parts that have been missing in your efforts to lose weight and keep it off. In his easy to read and understand book, Fung explains how to develop the eating habits you need to lose weight and that will last a lifetime.
We know that weight gain and loss are determined by hormones. What you may not know is that together, hormones and the effects of insulin resistance can put you at risk for obesity and it may be near impossible to achieve weight loss unless you understand how it works and what you can do about it.
Dr. Fung begins the book by explaining how obesity has become a true epidemic in our country and how the way we look at calories and exercise to lose weight can sabotage our efforts.
Even if you don’t know a lot about biology, the model of obesity that Fung presents in the book is simple and easy to understand. Don’t think it’s a book all about biology though.
Fung presents his findings in a remarkably funny, amusing and simplistic way that most science writers fail to do. Perhaps that’s why most of us find biology and science difficult to understand.
The Obesity Code clearly explains how we can be trapped in a metabolic cycle by focusing on how many calories we consume equals how much weight we’ll gain – or lose.
You’ll also learn how some of us have more of a propensity for gaining weight because of inherited genes and how insulin works to cause weight gain. Fung explains that faster weight loss can be obtained by adding fiber to your diet for gut health and how probiotics can affect weight.
The power of fasting is presented as a way to jumpstart your weight loss. Fung’s program is called intensive dietary management and you’ll learn all about intermittent and prolonged fasting and how a low carb diet can set you on the path of weight loss success.
The out-of-the box weight loss solutions that Dr. Fung presents in The Obesity Code fit together to give you a more complete understanding of how weight loss works and how you can use that information to achieve it.
