It’s not calories in/calories out

The Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight LossThe Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight Loss by Jason Fung
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book gives the lie to the idea that weight gain depends on calories in/calories out. Rather, insulin or insulin resistance is responsible for weight gain.

I’m pre-diabetic, and The Obesity Code has inspired me to cut back on sugars. Also, it’s not only a matter of what you eat, but also how frequently you eat. Fung endorses intermittent fasting.
