The Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight Loss Reviews
Unfortunately saddled with a poor title, The Obesity Code is not shilling some new fad diet or weight-loss program. In fact, this reader friendly, direct, and humorous book addresses the very serious problems with insulin resistance that so many who eat a western diet high in refined grains (and sugar) are plagued with. A trained nephrologist, Jason Fung has extensive knowledge based on years of experience with patients whose kidney failure and obesity were brought on by Type 2 diabetes. Obesity ...more
A must read for anyone struggling with weight management. It provides a completely new framework to address and tackle the problem. The nice thing is that everything in this book is backed by scientific studies on humans and empirical results. I loved it!
The Obesity Code is the 5th book in my non-fiction challenge for 2018. This book was very informative and interesting. It focused on insulin resistance being the trigger for those who struggle with weight loss- more in the long term than short term. It also touched on fasting and intermittent fasting and the pluses of that. Overall, it was an informative read.
Worked for me. Lost 18 pounds of fat in thirty days with a low-carb, high fat, moderate protein diet in conjunction with intermittent fasting.
Dr. Fung does a great job convincing that insulin and insulin resistance cause weight gain (as opposed to the overly simplistic and flawed calorie deficit model); however I was disappointed when reaching the end of the book. I understand no one book or person will have the answer/cure for obesity, but reading the recommendations for fasting, only to find that weight loss differs from person to person using this method and that there are plateaus using fasting made me raise my eyebrow. If he is c ...more
4/5; 4 stars; A-
This book was written by a Canadian doctor, a nephrologist in fact, who came to the topic by the way of treating patients for issues related to diabetes. I would highly recommend it for a couple of reasons. First, it gives a really good explanation of the all the hormones that impact blood sugar, hunger, saiety, metabolism, etc. And second it discusses aspects of nutrition that have been used to mislead consumers. Basically, food is big business, and those of us raised in the las ...more
I have a personal interest in this topic as I am in the process of losing weight myself and I have a maternal family history of diabetes that I am strongly fighting against developing. I will also say that I take most “diet” book with a grain of salt in that they tend to pick and choose their “scientific” research. Their “data” tends to be skimpy or non-existent.
I am really impressed with the extent of his research. I would say the last third of the book is footnotes and annotations to studies t ...more
Best Book Ever to Overcome Obesity with calorie counting & weighing food & excessive exercise.
The best weight loss book that cuts through all the mixed messages and myths we are taught. I wanted a scientific examination of how the body operates and I already assumed hormones play a huge role in obesity. This book has confirmed my suspicions. I am not wasting my time and money for another false hope and many more contradicting messages that are written to sell more magazines, book, and in ...more
