The Obesity Code by Jason Fung
« on: October 05, 2016, 02:19:36 PM »
I've just read this for the second time on my Kindle, it's a brilliant and eye opening book about the complexities of how the body works, what causes weight gain, why most diets fail, the flaws, bias and misinterpretations in scientific research, the influence of big business on government policy, propaganda and the difficulty in overturning wrong belief once it's become well established. Dr. Fung, initially stimulated by his work with kidney and diabetes patients, has certainly put a massive amount of work into thoroughly exploring the subject, the book is very detailed with much convincing scientific argument, although not too much and he keeps it interesting and entertaining with his humour. Well worth reading for anyone in the least bit concerned with their weight or health  :good:.
