Publisher's Summary

Disclaimer: This is a summary, review of the book The Obesity Code and not the original book.

Trying your best to lose weight by eating less and exercising more but not seeing the results you are hoping for?

Don’t Worry!

The book The Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight Loss by Dr. Jason Fung lets you in on the inner workings and mechanics of weight gain, shedding much needed light on why the traditional teachings on diets and weight loss simply do not work. He shows us through evidence based studies why “eating less” does not necessarily lead to weight loss, and “moving more” contributes less significantly to fat burn than what we had initially thought.

If you are looking for a clear and concise explanation on the secrets of weight loss, as well as a simple but effective way to burn fat and get in shape, then this book has got to be just the right one for you! Dr. Jason Fung leads you in on the critical factors which contribute to the obesity build up in the population, while clearly pointing out what we have got to do in order to shed the excess weight...for good!

This book holds a detailed, comprehensive summary of the original book by Dr. Jason Fung, and it succinctly collates all the important facts into easy-to-remember points for quick and effective understanding of the original work, so that you can hit the ground running and start to see the benefits from The Obesity Code in the shortest possible time! This book is meant to complement the original book and definitely not to replace it.

Within the book, you will find:

  • Summaries of each chapter
  • Executive summary of the book
  • Crucial facts and deliverables condensed into key knowledge pointers

Water fasting and carbohydrate reduction has helpd

I am currently on another water fast, my best is 21 days. I am my own worst enemy, eating is so ingrained into our culture. Many times I find myself eating, not because I am hungry, but because it's dinner, or lunch time.
Dr. Eric Berg has a YouTube channel, and has interviewed Dr. Fung. On 3/1/2021 Dr. Berg released a video he had done in the past, it's called "Keto on Steroids". The diet isn't for everyone, if you only have a small amount to lose, you should do the intermittent fasting that both Dr. Fung, and Dr. Berg advocate.
Dr. Berg has nearly 3000 videos on health related issues. You can sometimes learn as much in the comments as the video.
Best, Azmike

not worth the $3+

Hard to follow if you haven't read the book. Summary was of little value. And frankly don't know why you would need even after you've read the book.

Thank you.

I was able to assimilate the information much more efficiently by buying this book as opposed to the full version. I learned some valuable facts. Very pleasant narration and intonation. Thank you.

Really loved it!

What could be better to have in the 'old library than a summary/review version of a favorite author's book to reinforce the main points of your learning process? Enjoyed "The Diabetes Code" as well.

This was perfect!

This was perfect! To the point, easily understandable language with the bullet point of what is needed. Dr. Fung is brilliant in his approach, but this summary truly “cut the fat”.

Well, articulated summary book with a distinct and pleasing voice. A good way for someone already versed in the world of fasting to brush up on their knowledge.

It gave me the main take away!

This book was done in less than 40 minutes. It gave me the main take away and helped me decide to continue to learn about “the obesity code” and intermittent fasting.
