From acclaimed author of The Obesity Code, a revolutionary guide to reversing diabetes
In 2016, acclaimed author Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his bestselling book, The Obesity Code. Now he’s set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes. The Diabetes Code is a thought-provoking new look at this ancient disease, and a revolutionary guide to naturally reversing its course.
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, 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.
‘Clear and utterly convincing, this book deserves to be widely read.’
