About the Author
Dr. Jason Fung earned his medical degree at the University of Toronto, where he also completed his internal medicine residency before heading to UCLA for a fellowship in nephrology (a branch of medicine concerned with the kidneys). He currently practices as a kidney specialist in Toronto.
During the course of treating thousands of patients, it became clear to Dr. Fung that the epidemic of type 2 diabetes and obesity was getting worse. The prevailing dietary recommendations for reducing dietary fat and calories were clearly ineffective. In response, he founded the Intensive Dietary Management program (intensivedietarymanagement.com) to provide a unique treatment focus for type 2 diabetes and obesity that promotes simple yet effective dietary changes rather than focusing on medications.
Jimmy Moore catapulted onto the health scene in 2004 after a phenomenal 180-pound weight loss enabled him to come off prescription drugs for high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and respiratory problems. He is the energetic personality behind the uber-popular blog Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb and the host of the longest-running and top-ranked iTunes health podcast, The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show, as well as Low-Carb Conversations and Keto Talk. He has interviewed well over 1,000 of the world’s top health experts and has dedicated his life to helping people get the best information possible about nutrition so they can make the right decisions for their health. He’s the international bestselling author of The Ketogenic Cookbook, Keto Clarity, and Cholesterol Clarity. Learn more about Jimmy and his work at www.livinlavidalowcarb.com.

Well I have to give him credit, this author IS very responsive. Mr Moore didn't cover this in the book but he did cover my question on today's podcast: [...] The theory is that the reason my blood sugar goes way up on low carb is an amylin deficiency. Apparently this is a hormone that tells your liver to stop making sugar, and apparently some diabetics don't make enough of it, which is why this happens. The Doc also said that Dr Bernstein's advice to use saccharin is now a bit outdated, at least for Type 2 diabetics. Saccharin seems to cause an amylin deficiency all on its own. Since I've used no other artificial sweetener for 6 months, my current plan is to try the keto/intermittent fasting thing again, without any saccharin and see how that goes. If my glucose goes back over 300, I'll go to my doctor and ask for injectible amylin rather than insulin. I will come back and update how this goes later. This makes a lot of sense given my family history of generations of people going on insulin very quickly after diagnosis. I'm so relieved that this might be the answer to my problem.
Now the book recommends starting out the 24 hr fasting for a couple of days per week. I have decided to do it 5 or 6 times per week. I am pretty confident I can now get to any weight I want. I think the book is important in that it helps you break long held thoughts and misconceptions about eating and going without food. It also discusses other lengths of fasts that can range from 36 hour to weeks. It is so flexible you can do it anytime. And if I am fasting one day, and my friends invite me over for breakfast, or lunch no problem I will forget about fasting that day or have breakfast, but forget about lunch. In my opinion most people who have access to food have never experienced hunger, just mealtime urges. These urges are easy to identify and ignore after a few days (at least for me).
I listened to the audio book first and then used the book for reinforcement for changing my thinking. There is quite a bit of repetition but this was necessary for me to truly break long held conventional thinking.
Basically you are eating less food when only eating once per day. By having a long break between meals you body has time to get into fat burning mode. So while it seems like a magic button, it is not magic at all. You just have to forget about everything you have ever been taught or thought you knew about eating. This book is a great tool to change habits and conventional thinking.
I will try to come back after I reach my goal weight and give an update. But I have no doubt that this is the solution that will allow me to control my weight to whatever level I choose. Read the book. It will change your life!

Fasting "IS" very personal and in my opinion even children after the age of puberty should also be educated properly...Read more
