Description

Thousands of books have been written about the latest and greatest diets that will help people lose weight and improve health. But a key element in any successful nutritional health program is a tried-and-true method that most people haven't thought about - yet it could be revolutionary for taking health to the next level. This ancient secret is fasting.

Fasting is not about starving oneself. When done right, it's an incredibly effective therapeutic approach that produces amazing results regardless of diet plan. 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 best-selling 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

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great book, REALLY Bad Narrator

This book, especially when read after The Obesity Code, is fantastic. It's so good to me that overall the rating is still 5 stars even though the narration was HORRIBLE.

Jimmy Moore seems like a good guy and maybe he's got his fans from his podcast. Maybe he sounds more natural in regular conversation. But he was not the right person to read this audiobook. He sounds like he's never spoken to other people in his life and also like he's not sure how to read.

I'm truly sorry, I don't like to be critical of other people, but it was just that bad.

I never knew what insulin did. OH MY GOSH!!!

This book was a gift from my daughter who has lost 15 pounds several months ago after listening to this book. Her Husband has also listened to it and he has lost 20 pounds. They are both very trim and both are maintaining their weights by fasting.

So let me begin by saying, I started a diet on July 1st and told my daughter I was hoping to lose just 10 pounds. Not easy for a guy in his 60's.

She told me what she and her husband had done and gave me this book on July 4th. I started listening to it that very day and finished it on July 8th. As I type this, that was 3 weeks and 21 pounds ago!!! One June 30th my Blood pressure was 139/87. This morning it was 122/77.

There are a lot of books I really like but when it comes to practical life changing knowledge, I think there is only one book that has changed my life more than this one and that is the Bible.

I have never been one who fasts. I might miss a meal, but go several hours, that wasn't for me. Especially doing it for a whole day but the knowledge of how fasting benefits the body has changed my whole attitude. Before it was for a spiritual benefit that, to be honest, I never really felt. Now it is a physical benefit as well and I get its purpose.

Understanding the role of insulin in the body has been the key for me as I never knew what it did, how it was produced and it never even entered my mind it could be controlled. Dr. Fung and Jimmy Moore, who did a great job of narrating it, explained the process of how the body functions so clearly that I kept having "ah-ha" moments over and over.

For those suffering with Type-2 Diabetes, I can't imagine what you go through, but the way this book lays out the role of insulin, I think it will give you hope, I think a whole lot of Doctors should be re-thinking things.

For me, I do not have diabetes, so this process is right in my wheelhouse. Fasting is not an issue as I have always liked eating two meals a-day or even one big meal but I have always been told it was unhealthy to do that. Now I know different and even my wife who has always wanted me to eat three times a day is rethinking that old thinking.

Having been on the Adkins diet and losing 30 pounds about 15 years ago, I now understand why I gained it all back. After listening to this book (twice now), I understand now how to control the insulin in order to keep the weight off and doing that in a way that fits my schedule as I eat the way I always wanted to.

By the way, three days ago I ate at the Texas Road House with my family and had salad with extra Thousand Island dressing, filet steak, loaded baked potato, two roles with cinnamon butter and veggies and this morning I weighed less than at anytime in the last 15 years. How is that possible? Because I understand the role of insulin and that is thanks to this book on fasting.

While for me it has been easier to fast than I ever imagined, I know it won't be that way for everyone so I don't want to come across like it is super easy. All I can say is for me, this has worked, is working and I understand why.

If you are saying, "oh this is just a fad" you are wrong. This is not a fad. It is a change in the way I live my life by understanding how the body works and using that knowledge to control my weight, lower blood pressure and so many other benefits which are explained in this book,

Obviously, I highly recommend it and I will come back to update my story later as I still have 20 pound to go.

Update... It is September 8th, 2019 and I have now lost 43 pounds and am at my target weight of 195. Blood pressure this morning was 115/68. Haven't seen that since I was 20 years old. I am going to hold at this weight for awhile and then try to lose 10 more pounds.

great science and implementation tips.

Fung explains the science behind weight and eating issues including the seriousness consequences to our health as a society as well as why it's so hard practically to implement change. with both the knowledge and experience he them explains very successful strategies to deal with these issues succesfully. I was able to complete a 5 day fast easily even before I was done reading the book.

To many the initial response will be 'I can't do that' to whit I say TRY IT, you might surprise yourself.

Optional headline??? Guess again. :(

Great information! Normally I struggle with all of the scientific data and numbers, but that wasn't the case.

What I did struggle with in this particular book was the editing. It was very choppy and you can tell the difference as it jumps around a bit. It sounds like it might have been recorded in two different places and sounds somewhat robotic in places. If those issues could get fixed, it'd be awesome!

Hard to get through

I have listened to many books, several hundred hours. This one was rough to get through. The reader has no emotion, the same tone throughout the entire book. Which makes it difficult for the listener to comprehend what is being said. I would highly suggest if you choose this book that you read it to yourself instead of through audiobook. I listen to this book three times and was able to get very little out of it due to the way it was being read.

Usual jimmy

Same as his other two books, the information is good, but he repeats himself constantly! This didn't need to be a whole book, it could have been 1/3 of the size, just the facts!

jimmy should stick to his podcasts because I can't stand listening to him read this book. Hire a professional please! The books seemed to repeat the same thing over and over again.

Dr. Fung and Jimmy Lead the Pack!

Any additional comments?

Thank you! I've fasted 24-48 hours in the past, painfully! I needed to do a 7 day fast for health reasons and so, got your book in hopes it would help me through. Did it ever! Today I finished my 7 day water only (and a little green tea) fast and I know I was successful because of your information. I didn't quit on day 2 knowing day 3 and beyond would be easier. Without your information either I would have quit or been miserable for the entire time. Instead I breezed through and rode with the difficult spots. During my fast I got to my ideal body weight though I expect to add some lbs back on in the coming days. On top of all of that, great narrating Jimmy! This book was well organized and easy to listen to which I cannot say for many books of this kind.

Narration by Jimmy Moore is so bad that I returned the book!

Loved Dr Fung's "Obesity Code" and was so looking forward to this book but Jimmy Moore is a self-aggrandizing egomaniac - with a voice that grates with every word. All the podcasts are un-listenable as well. I am disappointed that Dr Fung would associate with him considering the total emphasis on SELLING.

I am sadly disappointed

After hearing the obesity code (dr fung), which I really loved I thought that could be the real guide to fasting. Unfortunately most of the audiobook are success stories from random patients, and quotes from " All Star fasting celebrities". I would prefer if I could get more information for each regimen, instead of referring to the attached PDF, which I have to find first. The book was not structured and informations were constantly repeating. Although I would definitely recommend the obesity code, I definitely do not recommend this audiobook.

Nur persönliche Geschichte

Keine wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse, nur Erlebnisbericht. Viele Fragen bleiben unbeantwortet. Keine langfristigen Ergebnisse offengelegt. Schöne Theorie ohne ausreichend Belege.

repetitive

The book is rather repetitive and a seems like a collection of disorganized success stories. It does not even remotely compare to Dr. Fung's book "the obesity Code" which is full of studies and very impressive.

Interesting! Only the parhogenesis of T2DM...

T2DM is mainly connected to insulin resistance which is based in eating too much animal fat...
