Fasting is simple. It’s so incredibly simple that it’s not actually an activity, it’s the lack of an activity. The lack of eating. The absence of eating. The deficiency of calories (read: not deficiency of nutrients, hydration, or water). It’s so remarkably simple that it’s also overwhelming. We get it.
Here are tips to get started fasting for weight-loss.Read More
Eating a diet full of healthy fats and low in carbohydrates lowers blood sugar and insulin levels. It will also shift the body’s metabolism away from using carbohydrates as energy and towards fat and ketones. The concept of high fat diets is to regulate insulin levels, reducing insulin spikes, cravings, a rise in blood sugar, etc. But, what the media and mass public think a ketogenic diet is, is vastly different from reality.Read More
We know that fat is good for you, and the establishment got it wrong when they pushed a low fat diet. This new study from the NIH is the kind of progress we need for support from the public, science and physicians.Read More
Being a woman is interesting. It comes with a set of unique challenges but in the end, to me, women empowerment is about choice. Eating foods that make you feel poorly is a choice. Exercising or taking a nap is a choice. Fasting or feasting is a choice every single time.Read More

I grew up in Toronto, Canada in the early 1970s. My younger self would have been utterly shocked that today, obesity has become a rising, unstoppable global phenomenon. At that time, there were serious Malthusian fears that the world’s population would soon eclipse the world’s food production and we would face mass starvation. The major environmental concern was global cooling due to the reflection of sunlight off dust particles in the air triggering the dawn of a new Ice Age. I wonder if Time Magazine thought one of the 51 things we should do is to become a penguin…Read More
Tired. Headaches. Insomnia. Waking up in the middle of the night with muscle cramps. Brain fog. Irregular heartbeat. In general, feeling pretty sh*tty.
These are all symptoms I was experiencing for a few weeks, not knowing they were all linked. I thought I was in some sort of funk, I was maybe exercising too much - pushing myself beyond my limits and my body was revolting.Read More
I had been doing keto for a few months and had noticed some changes, fabulous changes in my weight, and in how I felt less hungry. When I told my friend about it, and had some theories about food that I was truly surprised by she suggested that I read The Obesity Code by Dr. Jason Fung.Read More
So there I was.
It was time to order and apparently, I was going first. I was at lunch in Toronto sitting across the table and a bit starstruck. I was at lunch with the author of The Obesity Code and The Complete Guide to Fasting - Dr. Jason Fung. We were joined by Megan and Angel Ramos and my husband.Read More
What is autophagy? It’s a cellular process that is responsible for preparing broken down proteins for reuse in more broken down forms. So in essence, autophagy is a process that rescues junky broken down cells for reuse and prepares them for programmed destruction.Read More
If you've just learned about author Dr. Jason Fung, and you're trying to figure out which of his books to read first, I'm gonna give you my suggestion. First of all, the best books that I know of from Dr. Jason Fung are three. We have The Diabetes Code, The Complete Guide to Fasting, and The Obesity Code. Which should you read first? Well, if you are dealing with diabetes, I think it may make sense to start with that book so you can get right to the meat of things and read other books later.Read More
