What makes this book difference is the Fung differentiates between clinical studies that show how to lose weight, and speculation on things that may help you lose weight. He is also able to back his stance with real world examples. He is a true scientist, a skeptic, and I love that. His information is based on the best scientific studies available. There is no woo here. No "10 secrets to weight loss."
As others have said, we have been lied to about what to eat for the last four or five decades. It is tragic and it has made us fat. Bacon and eggs yes, skip the potatoes and toast please!
So far, so good. Moderate weight loss and the start of the lifting of the fog associated with too much weight and the lack of well-being. Knowing the real reason why Dr Fung and some other diet programmes waived-off so-called "diet" drinks and snacks will help in avoiding that trap as well. It never made any sense to me why zero-calorie, artificially sweetened, foods should be as off-limits as regular full-sugar products; like most others, I was convinced that as long as calories in were less than calories out (as-per the "Eat less, move more" strategy), I would have control of my weight. Dr Fung demonstrates why even this concept has its limitations.
Of course this book will not be endorsed by any of the diet companies who sell perpetual products and services. There is no money to be made by them or Big Food with Dr Fung's advice; for those who read his book and take heed, likely a healthier, longer life.
Bravo Dr. Fung!!!
P.S. I cannot thank you enough for giving me renewed hope that I can finally beat my obesity problem with time patience and your stategies
A must read for anyone who struggles with weight and feels guilty about failing. Dr. Fung explains why current diet models fail and how to fix this problem. His arguments are logical, based on SOUND research; lots of medical & scientific language but easy enough to follow. Wow, this book. It's changing how I feed myself and my family, immediately, permanently.
