Writing with clear, persuasive language, Dr. Jason Fung explains the only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively is proper dieting and intermittent fasting - not medication. Dr. Fung proposes a new, evidence-based way to break the cycle of high blood glucose and increased insulin resistance. Drawing from the latest in medical research, he outlines the impact of diet and lifestyle in type 2 diabetes and offers simple, easy-to-follow advice for preventing and reversing its course, complete with helpful charts and illustrations.
