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.

    By KJVOnly
    The best book on the subject of obesity, bar none! Well written, full of science, but accessible to the non-technical reader. If you have wondered why you cannot seem to successfully lose weight or are frustrated with moderate weight loss success only to see it all come back again with a vengeance, then this book is a MUST read for you.
  • Formatting Issues But Wonderful Book!

    By noteslinger
    For those wanting a refund due to the formatting issues with the iBooks version, just contact the iTunes Store in your Apple account and they will refund. I let the publisher know and they are working on it from what I understand. Very quick to respond to my concerns! Meanwhile, I do recommend purchasing the Kindle version. The book is wonderful and full of great info on this topic, so I was going to get any version I could to be able to read it!
  • Terrible formatting

    By Mydogisamazing
    Do not download this if you want to read it on your iPhone 6 Plus or smaller iPad. The font is very small so I have to zoom in. Then zoom out to flip to the next page. What a nightmare. I think I just totally wasted $10. I don't know if there is any way to get a refund. Get the Kindle version!
  • Book not formatted for iBooks

    By sjjs200
    Unable to read book. Each time you turn the page need to re zoom in the page. Does not have your standard controls to read the book. It's like one large PDF file. DR Fung - lazy approach and should provide refund.
