Thousands of books have been written about the latest and greatest diets that will help people lose weight and improve health. But a key element in any successful nutritional health program is a tried-and-true method that most people haven't thought about—yet it could be revolutionary for taking health to the next level. This ancient secret is fasting.

Fasting is not about starving oneself. When done right, it's an incredibly effective therapeutic approach that produces amazing results regardless of diet plan. In fact, Toronto-based nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung has used a variety of fasting protocols with more than 1,000 patients, with fantastic success. In The Complete Guide to Fasting he has teamed up with international bestselling author and veteran health podcaster Jimmy Moore to explain what fasting is really about, why it's so important, and how to fast in a way that improves health. Together, they make fasting as a therapeutic approach both practical and easy to understand.

The Complete Guide to Fasting explains:

  • why fasting is actually good for health
  • who can benefit from fasting (and who won't)
  • the history of fasting
  • the various ways to fast: intermittent, alternate-day, and extended fasting
  • what to expect when starting to fast
  • how to track progress while fasting
  • the weight loss effects of fasting
  • how to ward off potential negative effects from fasting

The book also provides tools to help readers get started and get through their fasts, including a 7-Day Kick-Start Fasting Plan and healing liquid recipes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mehh I prefer a cook book to have photos of each recipe. This had none from what I recall of looking through the book. The book has a meal plan, however the shopping lists fir each week are huge and a lot of the ingredients are not very practical (leg of lamb?? I can't even purchase that where I live, nor do I have desire to eat it). I guess you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must read for Type 2 Diabetics! Bought this book after reading Dr. Fung's "The Diabetes Code" and after following the recommendations my blood glucose levels went from 21 after being diagnosed earlier this year, to normal levels within 6 weeks with minimal medication. Intermittent fasting is key to lowering high blood sugar along with dietary change. Anyone and everyone with T2 Diabetes should read "The Diabetes Code" followed by "The Complete Guide to Fasting"!
