Everything you believe about how to lose weight is wrong. Weight gain and obesity are driven by hormones—in everyone—and only by understanding the effects of insulin and insulin resistance can we achieve lasting weight loss.

In this highly readable and provocative book, Dr. Jason Fung sets out an original, robust theory of obesity that provides startling insights into proper nutrition. In addition to his five basic steps, a set of lifelong 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.

    By theenglishmajortakestech
    Everything you need to know about health and wellness in a single source, summed up perfectly in a refreshingly honest, blunt and appropriately humorous writing style. Changed my entire outlook on weight challenges and perception of the body. 10/10!

    By Turboclown
    This is the most in depth explanation of weight gain that I have read so far. I believe it surpasses all other books on the subject of weight control.

  • Reader of Obesity Code

    By lloumil
    Just finished reading Obesity Code and even tho I am a RN for many years, I found the information researched by Dr Fung extremely beneficial to me for my weight management. He does an amazing job explaining our body and why we gain weight over time despite strong efforts to maintain. I highly recommend anyone who has suffered with managing their weight to purchase as a whole new understanding will unfold.
  • Very informative

    This truth about obesity is finally coming to light! Thank you Dr. Fund for your research and for sharing this information. For once in my life I feel like I'm not abnormal. I just have a sensitivity to insulin that was being worsened by doing everything the so-called experts told me to. But no more! I'm now on a LHCF diet and I'm the healthiest I've ever been!
  • Funny and informative!

    By Kmcfp
    Easy to read book that explains the science behind why some people get obese and what to do about it. The best part is that Dr Fung never once talks about fat people like we are the problem. We are not. We are products of our environment and mis-information. He's doing his part to fix it. Thank you! For once in my life I don't feel like a failure about my body.
