Book review of THE DIABETES CODE by Jason Fung, MD. Fung goes against the mainstream in explaining insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia. The big problem is too much insulin. Fung explains what causes insulin resistance, how to reverse insulin resistance, and ultimately how to reverse type 2 diabetes naturally.
This followup to his bestselling book, The Obesity Code, focuses on insulin resistance and obesity, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver treatment, and improving insulin sensitivity. The book covers the 2 most effective strategies for reversing insulin resistance and diabetes, low-carbohydrate high health fat (LCHF) diet and intermittent fasting.
