From acclaimed author Dr. Jason Fung, a revolutionary guide to reversing diabetes. Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his best-selling book, The Obesity Code. Now he has set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes. Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease—a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, as Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting—not medication.

"The people who say they don't have time to take care of themselves will soon discover they're spending all their time being sick." - Patricia Alexander Intermittent fasting is a phenomenon that is currently one of the world's most popular health and fitness trends. It involves alternating cycles of fasting and eating, instead of eating all hours during the day. It isn't a diet, but rather an eating pattern. It does not include any rules about what foods to eat, but rather when you should eat them. As noted by Time magazine, intermittent fasting is becoming so popular because of one reason - it works. It works whether you are trying to lose weight, or just improve your biomarkers to achieve optimal health. In a nutshell, it is the way we are designed to eat. It allows us to use fat as our primary fuel instead of carbohydrates by adopting the way our ancestors used to eat. Unlike so many diets out there, this is not the latest 'fad diet' portrayed in popular media. Dieting is a multi-billion dollar global industry, and there is not a shred of evidence people are becoming slimmer as a result. In fact, the opposite is true. The percentage of obesity keeps increasing and has now reached epidemic proportions all over the world. Intermittent fasting, however, has proven to be a safe and effective approach that promotes not just fat loss, but actually improves overall health in ways no other lifestyle modification could do. What differentiates intermittent fasting from any other diet is the extreme abundance of high-quality, peer-reviewed research to back up all of its claims and results. It also serves as the way humans were physiologically designed to eat, period. I truly believe this is the most powerful intervention out there if you're struggling with your health, weight, or any chronic disease. In addition, the other benefits it has to offer are nothing short of spectacular. The list of health benefits includes, but are not limited to:1. Massive fat burning and weight loss2. Increased human growth hormone production3. Enhanced brain function4. Insulin sensitivity5. Improvement of beneficial gut bacteria6. Reduction in cancer7. Leptin sensitivity8. Ghrelin hormone normalization (hunger hormone)9. Elimination of sugar cravings10. Reduced oxidative stress11. Increased lifespan and longevity In this book we will go over the many benefits intermittent fasting can bring to you. It is also going to cover the specific ways you can implement this fasting regimen in your life, as well as going over common questions and concerns you might have. The scientific health benefits we go over are very important. A lot of these benefits will seem exaggerated, but this is simply a review of the scientific literature and is not mere opinion on my part.
Tired of counting calories, eliminating foods from your diet, or obsessing about food all day? If so, an intermittent fasting lifestyle might be for you! In this book, you will learn the science behind intermittent fasting, and also understand how to adjust the various intermittent fasting plans to work for your unique lifestyle. The best part about intermittent fasting is that it doesn't require you to give up your favorite foods! You'll learn how to change WHEN to eat, so you don't have to change WHAT you eat. Are you ready to take control of your health, and finally step off of the diet roller coaster? All you have to do is learn how to "delay, don't deny!"

If you need to lose weight, look great, reduce inflammation, boost your immunity, or a myriad of other benefits, then you should consider one of the various intermittent fasting methods. There are different forms of intermittent fasting so if you want to fast responsibly, then you should find the type of fasting that suits you best. For instance, there is the 16-8 fasting where you fast for 16 hours and then eat your meals within the remaining 8 hours. Then there is the alternate day fast where you fast on one day and eat normally the next. You may also choose the extended fast where you fast for a longer period of time such as 8 days or more. Traditional fasting has proven to be ineffective with many people unable to cope with the tough requirements. Ordinarily, people would fast from dawn to dusk for probably an entire month, having to endure days on end without proper meals. Then once the benefits of fasting are achieved, they would resume normal life only for the problems to creep back again. This can be very frustrating. Fortunately, intermittent fasting solves this challenge. Rather than go through lengthy periods of fasting, all you need to do is identify the most suitable intermittent type of fasting. For instance, you may choose the 16-8 format where you go for 16 hours without eating anything and only eat within an 8-hour window in any given day. Fortunately, the 16 hours of fasting include your sleeping time so you will be asleep for about half of that time. Intermittent fasting has gained popularity because it offers choice, is easy to handle and has a lot of benefits but without the rigors and disadvantages of traditional ways of fasting. If you need to lose weight, look great, reduce inflammation, boost your immunity, or a myriad of other benefits, then you should consider one of the various intermittent fasting methods. ------------ Tags: Fasting Intermittent Weight Loss Guide Your Muscle Diet Burn Lose Build Healthy intermittent fasting intermittent fasting books intermittent fasting for women intermittent fasting diet intermittent fasting and ketogenic diet intermittent fasting 101 intermittent fasting free kindle books intermittent fasting for men intermittent fasting and keto diet intermittent fasting and keto intermittent fasting and cancer intermittent fasting and carb cycling intermittent fasting and diabetes intermittent fasting and feasting intermittent fasting and paleo intermittent fasting books for men how to lose weight fast 5 2 diet weight loss diet diet plan for weight loss 16 8 diet what is intermittent fasting fasting for weight loss diet plan to lose weight fast fat loss diet benefits of fasting ways to lose weight intermittent fasting benefits intermittent fasting results best diet to lose weight diets to lose weight fast intermittent fasting weight loss alternate day fasting five two diet 5 and 2 diet does intermittent fasting work best diet plan to lose weight fast how to do intermittent fasting diet meal plan to lose weight 5 2 diet plan health benefits of intermittent fasting what to eat when intermittent fasting lose fat fast fasting and weight loss healthy dinner for weight loss intermittent fasting studies how to do fasting nutrition plan for weight loss 24 hour fast fasting for a week fasting every other day the 5 2 diet best weight loss meal plan intermittent fasting app 5 2 diet meals weight loss food plan meal plan to lose weight fast fast meals how to intermittent fast fruits good for diet healthy food recipes to lose weight eating healthy to lose weight good weight loss foods fasting tips 5 2 diet weight loss weight loss help fast 5 diet weight loss guide 28 day egg ayuno intermitente dieta intermitente de ayuno intermittierende Fasten intermittierende Fastendiät digiuno intermittente dieta a digiuno intermittente jeûne intermittent régime à jeun intermittent jejum

Are you confused by what your cholesterol levels really say about your health? Don't you wish someone could just spell it out in simple, easy-to-understand language and tell you what, if anything, you need to do about your cholesterol? Good news! That's precisely what Cholesterol Clarity is designed to do. Jimmy Moore, a prominent and highly respected health blogger and podcaster, has teamed up with Dr. Eric Westman, a practicing internist and nutrition researcher, to bring you one of the most unique books you'll ever read on this subject, featuring exclusive interviews with twenty-nine of the world's top experts from various fields to give you the complete lowdown on cholesterol. If you're worried about any confusing medical jargon in this book, don't be—this critical information is broken down for you to grasp what is really important and what is not. You won't find this kind of comprehensive, cutting-edge, expert-driven cholesterol information all in one place anywhere else. Has your doctor told you your total and/or LDL cholesterol is too high and thus requires you to take immediate action to lower it? Has the solution to your "high cholesterol" been to cut down on your saturated fat intake, eat more "healthy" whole grains and vegetable oils, and possibly even take a prescription medication like a statin to lower it to "desirable" levels? If so, then this is the book for you. Learn what the real deal is from some of the leading experts on the subject. Not only will Cholesterol Clarity tell you what your cholesterol tests—LDL, HDL, triglycerides, and other key cholesterol markers—really mean, but it will also arm you with nutritional guidance that will lead you to optimal health. Are you ready to find out what the HDL is wrong with your numbers? Within the pages of this book you'll learn invaluable lessons, including: -Why your LDL-C and total cholesterol numbers may not be as important in determining your health as your doctor may think -The undeniable negative role that chronic inflammation plays in your health -Why cholesterol-lowering statin drugs don't necessarily solve your heart health concerns -Why your doctor should be testing for LDL particles and particle size when measuring cholesterol -Why HDL and triglycerides are far more predictive of health concerns than LDL-C and total cholesterol -Why consuming foods with saturated fat is good for you, and why carbohydrate-based foods can be detrimental to attaining the best cholesterol numbers -Why a growing number of physicians, researchers, and nutritionists believe treating cholesterol numbers is virtually irrelevant Contributing Experts Include: Cassie Bjork, RD Philip Blair, MD Jonny Bowden, PhD John Briffa, BSc, MB, BS Dominic D'Agostino, PhD William Davis, MD Thomas Dayspring, MD David Diamond, PhD Ron Ehrlich, BDS, FACNEM Jeffry N.
