The Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight Loss Reviews
I thought Dr. Jason Fung does an amazing job at explaining complex topics involved in diabetes, obesity, and insulin resistance. He's so thorough and easy to understand that you can't help but learn. And he's actually pretty funny to boot!
I have never heard such great explanations or had better understanding of why we gain weight and why diets never work. He gives long term solutions that I've never heard explained this way before, yet make perfect sense! He sorts through all the fake data and g ...more
Nothing in this book was new for those, who, like me, are following books/blogs on healthy eating and practicing that eating itself. I met several typos throughout the book and was not impressed with the coherence and thoroughness of presented framework. The biggest flow is the absence of advice for the target audience on how to tame the appetite at the beginning, "how to brace yourself for impact", so to speak. I personally know the answer - gather the strength to give up grain, then be sure to ...more
My ego only took on marginal damage when my physician recommended a book to me with the word Obesity front and center. In fact I was quite ready to take on a more strategic effort towards more healthy living. Even the suggestion of intermittent fasting, the central and lone thesis of this book, struck an affirmative chord. I'm down with a spiritual practice which transcends religious affiliation and the fleetingness of fads and which may connect me more meaningfully to the virtue of consumption ...more
I'm not at all sure how to rate this book. Overall, I think his argument that chronically high insulin levels cause obesity is probably true. But there are some logical gymnastics involved in this book, too. There was a lot of assertion that "calories don't matter" and "calories in/calories out" is wrong. But getting rid of snacks, as Fung suggests, will, for most people, automatically reduce calories. Replacing a piece of white bread and butter at dinner with steamed broccoli? Lower calories. F ...more
Best Book Ever to Overcome Obesity with calorie counting & weighing food & excessive exercise.
The best weight loss book that cuts through all the mixed messages and myths we are taught. I wanted a scientific examination of how the body operates and I already assumed hormones play a huge role in obesity. This book has confirmed my suspicions. I am not wasting my time and money for another false hope and many more contradicting messages that are written to sell more magazines, book, and in ...more
Unfortunately saddled with a poor title, The Obesity Code is not shilling some new fad diet or weight-loss program. In fact, this reader friendly, direct, and humorous book addresses the very serious problems with insulin resistance that so many who eat a western diet high in refined grains (and sugar) are plagued with. A trained nephrologist, Jason Fung has extensive knowledge based on years of experience with patients whose kidney failure and obesity were brought on by Type 2 diabetes. Obesity ...more
The Obesity Code is the 5th book in my non-fiction challenge for 2018. This book was very informative and interesting. It focused on insulin resistance being the trigger for those who struggle with weight loss- more in the long term than short term. It also touched on fasting and intermittent fasting and the pluses of that. Overall, it was an informative read.
The best diet book ever!
I've read more diet books than I know what to do with here is why this book is the best:
1. It explains why calorie restriction doesn't work.
2. It explains why over eating doesn't cause you to gain weight.
3. It explains in simple terms why we get fat.
4. It's a whole lifestyle approach to losing weight.
5. It doesn't tell you one diet is better than another, but it tells you exactly why most diets work but for only about 6 months.
6. Then, it tells you what to do to avoid pla ...more
