“This is not just a problem for the citizens of the West in their 60’s, we are now seeing children developing these diseases that are caused by our diet. It really is a problem that is affecting everybody.”Dr. Jason Fung Paid advertisement
Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his best-selling book, The Obesity Code. Now he has set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes with his brand new release The Diabetes Code. Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease—a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, as Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting—not medication.
On today’s show we bring you a “greatest hits” of Dr. Fung’s appearances on The LLVLC Show. Sit back and enjoy this special episode with one of the most prominent voices in diabetes care and obesity treatment.Paid advertisement
