Publisher's Summary

Thousands of books have been written about the latest and greatest diets that will help people lose weight and improve health. But a key element in any successful nutritional health program is a tried-and-true method that most people haven't thought about - yet it could be revolutionary for taking health to the next level. This ancient secret is fasting.
Fasting is not about starving oneself. When done right, it's an incredibly effective therapeutic approach that produces amazing results regardless of diet plan. In fact, Toronto-based nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung has used a variety of fasting protocols with more than 1,000 patients, with fantastic success. In The Complete Guide to Fasting, he has teamed up with international best-selling author and veteran health podcaster Jimmy Moore to explain what fasting is really about, why it's so important, and how to fast in a way that improves health. Together, they make fasting as a therapeutic approach both practical and easy to understand.
The Complete Guide to Fasting explains:

Why fasting is actually good for health
Who can benefit from fasting (and who won't)
The history of fasting
The various ways to fast: intermittent, alternate-day, and extended fasting
What to expect when starting to fast
How to track progress while fasting
The weight loss effects of fasting
How to ward off potential negative effects from fasting

Optional headline??? Guess again. :(

Great information! Normally I struggle with all of the scientific data and numbers, but that wasn't the case.

What I did struggle with in this particular book was the editing. It was very choppy and you can tell the difference as it jumps around a bit. It sounds like it might have been recorded in two different places and sounds somewhat robotic in places. If those issues could get fixed, it'd be awesome!

Must read for those interested in health/nutrition

Loved it! As with Jimmy Moore's other books, this book provides practical advice for fasting/eating along side easy to understand explanations for the science behind how the body uses energy. The methods in this book are evidence-based and supported by years of medical research, unlike so many other dieting books. Definitely one of the best books on nutrition, preventative measures and lifestyle choices to put healthcare in the hands of patients rather than the pharmaceutical industry. Much needed information in today's age of diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome and the preponderance of unsubstantiated nutrition advice on the internet.
