Whatever you need to know about Obesity is in this book! It is easy to read and if you have a history of struggling with weight you will be clinging onto every word. I stumbled across Dr. Fung while researching about fasting on youtube. This book gave me more head knowledge and ammo to continue on my weight loss journey!!
Update: From January 1st up until October 8th, I have lost a total of 40 lbs using the same principles that Dr. Fung outlines in this book. That is a pound/week and zero exercise or diet products were involved in my transformation. I know a picture is worth a 1000 words, so let me show you progress.
Update 2/14/19: I posted a current photo of myself to let everyone know where things stand 2 years later. I know often times people lose weight and within a short period of time it creeps back up. However, I have gained a total of 10 lbs back since I fell off the low carb/fasting wagon in 2018. My husband and I bought and renovated our first home in 2018, so it was a very stressful year. I moved away from the low carb diet in 2018; however, I still continued eating only at dinner Monday-Friday. Often times that dinner was carb heavy like pizza, burgers, Mexican food, ect… We wont talk about how bad my eating was on weekends :) I'm actually shocked, but the bulk of the weight stayed off. Since things have settled down for us in 2019, I am kick starting again with Dr. Fung's advice and have set a goal weight of 140 lbs by July 2019 and this time I will include exercise with my fasting routine.
