The Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight Loss Reviews
My ego only took on marginal damage when my physician recommended a book to me with the word Obesity front and center. In fact I was quite ready to take on a more strategic effort towards more healthy living. Even the suggestion of intermittent fasting, the central and lone thesis of this book, struck an affirmative chord. I'm down with a spiritual practice which transcends religious affiliation and the fleetingness of fads and which may connect me more meaningfully to the virtue of consumption ...more

Jason Fung's book "The Obesity Code" is a valuable addition to the library of anyone who is interested in healthy eating, obesity and weight loss. The author is a doctor (nephrologist) who has dedicated himself to fighting obesity and diabetes. He bases his book exclusively on studies done on humans (since humans are not rats and results from rat studies are not directly applicable to humans).
Dr. Fung presents his theory of the causes of obesity, blaming it first ...more
This book had some really good information in it. I found it very well researched, if a little dry, and it certainly made me think about how I approach the subject of dieting. However, I can't see the book becoming a household favourite because it is rather repetitive and leans more towards scientific proof than practical application. For me, the aspect of story is always key to a good book, even a non-fiction one, and this book lacked that. Still, for the avid dieter who is looking for substant ...more
Dr. Fung does a nice job critiquing the nonsense we were all taught for 50 years about calories and cholesterol, etc.
Unfortunately, he seems to have hoisted himself on his own petard. He lambastes others for recommending things that are not evidence-based, but then his big advice is to fast, whereas the evidence indicates that fasting doesn't work any better than calorie restriction:
It's a shame Fung went out on a limb like that, because he does explain ...more
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.
I had just finished watching Jason Fung's six part video series, The Etiology of Obesity on YouTube, and it crystallized a lot of what I've learned over the years regarding hormones and weight loss/gain, so I thought I'd pick up the book and see what else he had to say.
Well, honestly, most of the stuff he talks about in the book is in the videos (which I sort of figured), so you don't really need the book, though it's nice to have a more convenient reference than twitching through YouTube.

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
So this review covers like 2/3 of the book. I'm getting kinda lazy at the end here. I got bored so I skimmed the actual weight loss advice at the end. This book is probably the best non-fiction I've read so far. The first 2/3 of the book is mostly about things you shouldn't do to lose weight / weight loss myths and it's like reading plot twist after plot twist because it's all bad news. If you are actually reading this to lose weight the last 1/3 explains how to do it. (Which is by fasting.) ...more
