The Fasting Doctor: “Fasting Cures Obesity!”, This Controversial New Drug Melts Fat, Fasting Fixes Hormones! Skip Breakfast!

The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett

Monday, 22 January 2024 - 1 hour 26 minutes

There seems to be endless ways to lose weight and yet none seem to work, but could it be that there was one health metric that held the key to long term weight loss?

Dr Jason Fung is a nephrologist (medical expert specialising in kidneys) and world-leading expert in intermittent fasting and low-carb diets. He is the author of bestselling books such as, ‘The Obesity Code’, ‘The Diabetes Code’, and ‘The Complete Guide to Fasting’.

In this interview, Steven and Dr Jason discuss everything from the history behind dieting myths, how insulin causes weight gain, why you don’t need breakfast, how obesity is genetic, and the power of fasting.

You can purchase Jason’s book, ‘The Diabetes Code: Prevent and Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally’, here:
