Publisher's Summary

Fasting is emerging as one of the most exciting medical advancements in recent memory. Its list of benefits extends far beyond weight loss and includes improved cardiovascular health, lower blood pressure, protection against cancer, and better cognitive function. 

While many of us may be able to handle the physical effects of fasting, the mental and social challenges are often daunting. There are so many opportunities to eat during the day, and sometimes it's rude not to participate in meals. What do you do with the time you used to spend eating? How do you navigate social situations while fasting? How can a food addict mentally prepare for a fast? 

Life in the Fasting Lane fills all of these gaps, and more, by bringing together three leading voices in the fasting community to provide a book written for both the body and the mind, helping people cope with all aspects - physical, social, emotional, medical - of fasting. It blends cutting-edge medical and scientific information about fasting with the perspective of a patient who has battled obesity the majority of her adult life.

Practical and helpful guide for IF

this book is less about Dr Fung and more about Eve Mayor, who made a U turn on her health issues due to IF. What I liked about this book was that it shared a true common perspective of what it is to go on IF and what you go through post that. Personal feeling of guilt and happiness, challenges faced, people's reaction and your own behaviour- this book is relatable and covers something or the other of that. I totally agree with one line- when you are feasting, you want to fast and when you are fasting you want to feast. Its more of an inspirational book and feels like you are listening to a friend who has tried IF and can guide you through it. Enjoyable and worth it.

Excellent guidance

Loved the explanation given by the authors for starting and maintaing the fasting procedure. Myself started fasting at a slow pace for the past 4 weeks. This guidance might give a great help and motivation to continue and explore fasting to its full extent.

Perfect Guideline for IF

The Book presents a complete factual evidence on how IF could be useful for building a better lifestyle and the flaws behind the Calories Deficit theory.
