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!

Hard to get through

I have listened to many books, several hundred hours. This one was rough to get through. The reader has no emotion, the same tone throughout the entire book. Which makes it difficult for the listener to comprehend what is being said. I would highly suggest if you choose this book that you read it to yourself instead of through audiobook. I listen to this book three times and was able to get very little out of it due to the way it was being read.

Like finding the light switch.


Just. Wow.

I'd tried the 5-2 diet but it didn't work out for me. Now I understand why. Since reading this book I've developed the confidence to manage my hunger and now it's gone from a banging drum to a gentle tap.

I shed a stone in a month and I feel great. This is so blooming easy - and obvious. I'll update this review in six months and tell you if I managed to keep the weight off.

Reversing My Diabetes

Would you listen to The Complete Guide to Fasting again? Why?

This guide to fasting is full of excellent content for anyone looking tonnes fasting to step up their level of health.

I bought this book because was very recently diagnosed with diabetes type ll. I've been following the guidelines laid down in this book and I'm amazed at how it has affected my blood sugar level. I will continue to use the information in this book to reverse my diabetes and I would recommend it to everyone who owns a physical body and wishes to live a longer, healthier life.

Fast forward through this one

I have watched Jason Fung videos and like what he has to say sometimes. I do believe that the answer to Type 2 diabetes is diet related, but get so frustrated when people refer to the evidence that show that low carb diets work better at reducing weight and other health related numbers such as HbA1c. The evidence definitely does support this BUT only in the short term. In the long term, trial participants are unable to maintain the LCHF way of eating and revert to old habits.
So adding intermittent fasting to the mix would appear to work better than a LCHF diet. Surely that is because the overall calorific input is so drastically cut. Dr Fung talks about how the calories in calories out theory is wrong, but isn't intermittent fasting simply calorie restriction?
I would really have liked to have heard more about the body's insulin response to certain foods and how cutting back on those foods may normalise weight and HbA1c.

The contents of this book could easily have been covered in a single chapter and why oh why Dr Fung decided to partner with Jimmy Moore to produce the book is unfathomable.

Even more of a mystery is why anyone in their right mind would allow Jimmy Moore to narrate the book. He sounds like a junior school child trying to read new words.
