    Description

    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 listenable 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.

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

    Weak performance of a good book

    Considérez-vous la version audio meilleure que la version papier ?

    Inarticulate reading of an articulate and interesting book. When reading a book with a lot of scientific terms, it is important that the performer studies those terms carefully and pronounces them clearly and correctly. Unfortunately this performer appears not to have done enough homework, resulting in distracting mispronunciations and an overall impression of inarticulateness. Having heard the author interviewed on YouTube, I would have vastly preferred to hear this book performed by the author.

    Seriez-vous prêt à écouter une nouvelle performance de Brian Nishii ?

    No, I was disappointed with the performance.

    A convenient truth about body weight management

    Although much of what we know about the human body remains to be unfold, the author convinced me that obesity is a hormonal imbalance and not a caloric imbalance as preached by so many physicians and doctors today, almost all influenced by the economy, societal trends and politics like most consumers including myself. This book is a revelation.

    One of the most important books I have read

    With a perfect balance of nutrition theory, history of diets, and practical guidance, this is possibly the most important book I have read. Many previously held beliefs have been challenged as a result, and finally obesity and weight gain/loss makes sense. Understanding this in terms of a hormonal homeostasis - rather than the oversimplified, reductionistic frameworks using caloric calculations or making sweeping judgements on one or more macronutrient group - has given me nee hope in improving my own health. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. in addition, it is beautifully and skillfully narrated, making it a pleasure to consume the valuable information.

    There is a PDF, Folks

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I keep seeing reviews on Audible stating "it would be nice to have the charts, forms, list, etc. the author keeps referring to". Yes they're included here! Look at your purchase list, and underneath the books that include a pdf you will find a link to click. You can then download reference material for your book. I wish Audible would do a better job showing this! Click on Library, then My books, and then look for the links underneath the book purchased.

    YES!! Finally. The book I've been searching for!!

    I am not a doctor, nutritionist or science major. I'm just a middle-age female who has struggled with weight for the past 15 years. I have a genuine interest in biology, epigenetics, nutrition and disease prevention. I have literally read or listened to every single book published out there on those subjects. Some are good, some are bad. And all of them center around this false notion that eating the right amount or specific kinds of various macros are the key to losing weight. Don't get me wrong - some of those diets and eating plans work - in the short term. Once I even lost 30 lbs and found a love of trail running. But every single stinkin' time the weight loss would be only temporary, and it would come back on within months. I was the quintessential yo-yo dieter who people assumed went on ice cream eating binges when I definitely did not. No one ever explained set-point, or the reason why weight comes back. Dr. Fung explains the body's homeostasis so well and with such great analogies that it was like a big, bright lightbulb going off. I'm excited to begin a new journey of sustained weight loss. This time around, instead of cutting out entire food groups or focusing on macros, I bought a blood sugar monitor and will aim to lower my blood sugar and insulin levels by experimenting with the right foods and diet for me. I discovered that Greek Yogurt -- the supposed health food that almost every diet book applauds as being great for weight loss -- spikes my blood sugar (and presumably, my insulin) considerably. But a snack of Ezekiel bread and peanut butter (gasp... actual BREAD?) didn't affect my blood sugar much at all. After years of wondering if tweaking and lowering my calories by another 100 on My Fitness Pal app would help me break my plateau, I finally have real answers. (And for the record, Dr. Fung insists that answer is NO.) The narrator was fabulous, and all around I'm declaring that I don't need to listen to another weight loss book ever again. This is a God-send!

    Waste of money and time

    This book is the most padded book I have ever read. It essentially says.: Eat less sugar and refined carbs. Eat less processed food. Drink Apple cider vinegar in water. Exercise is good but doesn't help weight loss. Fat and coffee are good. Fast. There, I saved you 15 dollars and 15 hours of listening to the same things over and over.

    Compelling Argument about Managing Weight

    It was a big surprise that a book on weight loss would inspire me to submit a review. But after a lifetime of hearing about can't miss diet plans that ultimately backfire - sometimes with health consequences, it is nice to hear solid researched arguments that support a diet plan that has already been around for centuries.

    Insulin resistance is the villain in our lives that leads to weight gain or a set point weight that puts us in the overweight camp. Caloric reduction, eating small amounts often, the necessity of a large breakfast and many more unsuccessful approaches are not panaceas, and may end of doing more harm than good.

    Dr. Fung tells us that fasting is the answer. He busts some of the myths you hear about the dangers of this dieting approach. The one that had my attention was how the muscles were first broken down before fat was used when fasting.

    But, don't take my word for it, you need to hear the persuasive evidence based research pleasantly presented to you by a top notch narrator.

    Who knew - a diet book - and I was never bored.

    We'll see, but .... why is this not common knowledge.

    I am morbidly obese and have steadily worked at losing weight. I had a nutritionalist (who wasn't covered under my insurance and I was paying out of pocket) tell me IF I was being honest in my food journal that I should be losing weight. I obeyed the rules....just didn't have the code. My weight is finally going down after years - YEARS- of obesity.

    This book literally saved my life

    I stumbled upon this book in July, 2017. At the time I was 370 pounds, T2 diabetic, and miserable. 8 months later I am down 100 pound and my H1C has corrected from 8.7 to 5.4 -- i.e. no longer diabetic. These days I feel amazing all the time, razor sharp mental clarity, improved energy, joints, skin, sleep, mood. I no longer crave foods like before, and 8 months into eating this way I have zero diet fatigue -- in fact, I enjoy eating more than I did before!

    Looking back, I find it amazing how bad I was before. And all because of poor eating habits.

    Dr. Fung lays out the case for why we are fat and how to regain control of our lives. He describes the science in detail, but also presents it in a way that is accessible to the masses, with plenty of crystal clear analogies. If you are dealing with chronic disease, particularly T2D, fatty liver, or obesity, you MUST read this book and give it a try.

    I am now a member of a local Facebook group dedicated to helping people learn and adapt to Fung's approach. Just through word of mouth, this group has grown to 1700 members in a year, and has dozens of posts per day from people who have regained control of their health and their lives. And Fung's plan is the foundation.

    Outstanding

    Best book on obesity and fat loss I've ever read. Notice how Fung of not trying to sell you anything? That's how you know that the thesis presented is legit. I've been doing Warrior Diet and OMAD IF for 3 weeks, am down 7lbs, and feel great. This is how I am going to eat for life. Read/listen to this book, it is life-changing.

    Mind blowing

    I think Dr. Fung is on to something huge here. I'm sure his recommendations will be fiercely fought and debated by industry if this book hits the mainstream media. I can see these ideas becoming generally accepted in 5-8 years from now once enough people have tried and succeeded and put public pressure on government and health athorities to implement this knowledge.

    Fakenreich, fundiert und unterhaltsam

    Ein wirklich ausgezeichnetes (Hör)buch rund um das Thema der Ernährung. Es wird mit vielen Mythen aufgeräumt und alle Aussagen sind wissenschaftlich fundiert und recherchierter. Nicht nur interessant für Diabetiker oder Personen die abnehmen wollen sondern auch für jeden, der sich bewusst und richtig (zur richtigen Zeit) ernähren will und konkrete Hilfestellungen und Tipps inkl. Erklärung haben möchte. Ich dann den Titel ohne Einschränkung empfehlen!

    Briliant!

    Another Briliant book by Jason Fung M.D. This book is amazing in explaining why diets don't work, why we gane weight and the solution how to lose weight. It is so simple and yet Briliant I can't find any flaws in his theories. I recommend it to everyone who is confused about all the diets and nutrition plans out there, or for someone who tried and failed one time too many. This book is the answer to our tears and prayers for healthy and lean self.

    Simple Truth

    I am a Fan. Why? Dr. Fung teaches you a very simple but maybe (on the first thought) uneasy truth. STOP EATING the wrong things and the whole day long. I am now fasting 20:4 and avoid any fast carbs, which allows me to fast very easy. I lost 40 Kilos, regained mobility, cured my Diabetes. I could go on for hours. Buy this ! Learn! Heal. :-)

    Insightful, scientifically thorough, easy to read

    This book is enlightening as it explains the mechanisms of insulin and its resistance along with why certain diets don’t work and what to do instead. Insightful, scientifically thorough, easy to read!! Can absolutely recommend this book, not only to people who suffer from obesity.

    Much science. Facts.

    I had expected a guidebook for this diet or that. what I got was something much more valuable. I got well researched knowledge of how the human body reacts to, and processes what we feed it.
    If you are looking for a plain and simple cure for being overweight, look elsewhere. There is none.

    Wauw - Covers it all!

    I have read several books about food and diet. So I am not totally new to this subject.
    Many works focus on one specific topic.
    The Obesity Code puts it all together, all the puzzle pieces fall into place.
    It’s brought in a way that is clear and easy to follow. At times maybe a tad repetitive, but I’ve noticed this in other American authors as well..... must be a question of style.

    All in all The Obesities Code is an empowering eye-opener, an excellent read for anyone with an interest in health and nutrition.
    For a person suffering from excess body weight it might just be life changing.

    I think I will listen to The Diabetes Code from the same author, too.

    Answering the Why Questions

    A comprehensive and entertaining presentation of the reasons for the obesity epidemic.

    Highly recommended if you or those close to you are affected by any form of metabolic syndrome.

    Only thing to nitpick is that there is a lot more time spent on dispelling wrong approaches than establishing precise data on correct ones, and so some descriptions on the latter feel short and rushed.

    Overall, I still very much enjoyed reading this, even though I'm not directly affected. The information also helped my neighbor improve his T2 diabetes, and I appreciate the nutritional advice. Totally worth it.

    Der heilige Gral

    Nach Jahrzehnten der Suche und der Verwirrung hat dieses Hörbuch endlich all die losen Enden der Ernährungstheorien zusammengeführt und damit Klarheit und Erkenntnis für mich gebracht. Ich bin so dankbar! Ich fühle mich gerüstet für einen Start in ein neues Leben.
