The book is wonderful! Written in such a way that anyone can understand the basic science behind intermittent fasting, this book explains it all without the textbook feel. Easy and light enough to read in one evening, like I did, and inspiring at the same time. This book is a great beginner's guide to intermittently fasting for weight loss. And I'll tell you from my own experience, once you try intermittent fasting earnestly, you'll wonder why more people aren't doing it!
~Nicole S. lost 220 lbs with IF in 17 months
* very clear explanation of the role of insulin and the reasons fasting is the way to go
* excellent, short explanation of different methods of IF. I wish I had had these when I first started exploring fasting.
* great chapter on OMAD (One Meal A Day) - as someone who is aspiring to this form of fasting, this was most helpful in my own situation. What does it really mean? What sort of flexibility is there? I think this would be very helpful to anyone thinking about OMAD. Gin gives real-world examples from her own journey that I found very encouraging. What will I do on my cruise in May?? Now I know.
* loved the chapter on what to eat. Very practical reflections on whether, if or when to do low carb, etc.
* great personal testimonials from people who have done it
First I found The Obesity Code by Dr. Jason Fung, as Gin Stephens did. I devoured it and felt like the truth about weight loss hit me like lightening...It made perfect sense why so many couldn't lose weight and when people do, they usually regain it!
Then I found DDD by Gin and she tied it even tighter together, in layman's terms and it all became EASY. I have lost 60 pounds in 6 months and almost feel guilty accepting compliments because I am putting far less effort into weight loss than I ever have before. I haven't even been exercising at all.
Intermittent Fasting is the easiest thing I have ever done and it has totally changed my life. I know I have found the CURE to my weight problem. I have led several friends to IF and they have had the exact same results. We are all ecstatic!
This ISNT a diet. This isn't a "program". There is no prepackaged foods or meals, no protein bars, no food restrictions, no weighing or measuring food, no calorie counting, no shakes, nothing to buy after you have read and understand the sole principle involved.
It's time management, not food management. Its learning how to fast (much easier then you imagine) and learning how/ when to feast. It's NO GUILT and healing your relationship with food. Its the healing of your metabolic disorder (and if you're obese, you do have one). Its resetting your weight set point so you can keep it off. You choose your fasting time/ eating time- you individualize this to your life. As Dr. Fung says, "You fit IF into your life, you don't try to fit your life into IF". Gin is a genuinely kind person who has assisted many in figuring out just what that meant for them.
IF involves getting out of your body's way and letting IT direct your fuel management as a wonderfully and fearfully made creation can only do.
Stop micromanaging the process, heal your body and leave it the hell alone--it KNOWS what to do.
Western Medicine, on the other hand, knows how to create a pandemic of obesity. Just look around.
