Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Dr. Jason Fung is a New York Times-bestselling author of many books including The Obesity Code and The Diabetes Code. He completed medical school at the University of Toronto and a fellowship in nephrology at UCLA. He is the co-founder of The Fasting Method, a program to help people lose weight and reverse type 2 diabetes naturally with intermittent fasting. An early proponent of the now-popular fasting lifestyle, Dr. Fung is often called the founder of intermittent fasting. Today, Dr. Fung has prescribed intermittent fasting and a low carb diet to thousands of patients who have seen results that include reversal of type 2 diabetes, weight loss, and overall higher quality of life and wellbeing.
In this conversation, Drs. Brian and Jason talk about what intermittent fasting is and why people do it, how to marry knowledge with environmental factors for maximum success with fasting and weight loss, how to change habitual behavior and get started with new, beneficial habits, putting diabetes into remission and de-prescribing drugs with lifestyle changes, going beyond calories-in calories-out to the deeper level of knowledge about metabolic health and weight loss, and how stress factors into the weight loss equation.
