Just buy it, read it and do it. You won't be sorry.

I am a health care professional. I have been reading about intermittent fasting and Dr. Jason Fung for quite some time. After a rather lackluster go with the 5:2 regimen, I was weary. But then I talked to a friend who said it is legit and to try eating between a 12 and 8 pm window. The biggest hurdle was psychological by far. So I did it. And it was easy. I read The Obesity Code first and just had to read this one. This one was the favorite of the two. I loved the testimonials. I loved the before and after test results, the science and I loved how he laid out what the rules are and several different ways that you can incorporate fasting into your life. I am convinced this is what is needed to reverse chronic disease and diabetes. I don't have much weight to lose, but I lost over 15 pounds so far. I am a foodie and wine lover so when I say I love food, I love food. And this was easier than anything I've ever tried. I started with an eight hour window and consistently lost two pounds a week. Then I started condensing it into a smaller window and then tried a 24 hour window. At work, this is easy. Did I mention it was easy? When you see the results on the scale, it does motivate you to keep going (assuming you aren't eating complete processed crap when you do eat).. I just went on vacation and fasted for four days after I returned. I ate (and drank) to my heart's content on vacation and four days later I weigh less than when I left. You feast and then you fast.
Every time I tell someone about this, their first response is that there is no way they could do it. Stop the excuses!!!! If you want to lose weight, get healthy and fit into those clothes that you can't fit into anymore, do this. Try it. You have absolutely nothing to lose. It truly makes your life easier and it's free to not eat. We are just not meant to eat all the time.
