520 "Thousands of books have been written about the latest and
greatest diets that will help you lose weight and improve
your health. But one of the most revolutionary dietary
methods for taking your health to the next level is
something that most people haven't thought about: fasting.
Fasting is not about starving yourself. When done right,
it's an incredibly effective therapeutic approach that
produces amazing results for weight loss and type 2
diabetes, and can even help slow aging, prevent cancer,
and improve heart health. In fact, nephrologist Dr. Jason
Fung has used a wide variety of fasting protocols with
more than one thousand patients, with fantastic results.
In [this book], Dr. Fung has teamed up with international
bestselling 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 your
health. Together, they make fasting as a therapeutic
approach both practical and easy to understand. In [this
book], you'll learn: why fasting is actually good for your
health; how fasting helps you lose weight without slowing
your metabolism (unlike cutting calories); why fasting
works as a treatment for type 2 diabetes; who would
benefit from testing (and who wouldn't); the various ways
to fast, including intermittent fasting, alternate-day
fasting, and extended fasting; what to expect when you
start fasting. [This book] also provides tools to help you
get started, including four fasting protocols, tips and
tricks for managing common concerns during a fast, and
recommendations on what liquids to consume during your
fast for the best results. And because fasting needs to be
balanced with healthy eating, 20 delicious grain-free
recipes will help you eat right around your fasts. [This]
is the go-to resource for anyone who wants to try fasting
for health. It may be the missing link in your journey to
optimal wellness."--Back cover.
