This book eats most other weight loss books for lunch, without gaining an ounce.
Dr. Fung argues that obesity is not about calories or fat grams or exercise, but about hormones. The main character in his book is insulin, a powerful hormone that regulates our metabolism. When insulin levels run too high for too long, we develop “insulin resistance,” which can make us fat. By identifying the true culprits in obesity, Dr. Fung provides readers with much-needed hope and strategies grounded in science rather than mythology.
