Publisher's Summary

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 best-selling 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

Fast for a healthy you, this book will help you!

Fasting: a nightmare or heaven's ride?
The answer to this question has been quite a journey. After been in this journey for more than almost 2 years, one thing I can surely say is, staying informed and hydrated is THE Key.
I have used my body as an experimental ground for almost everything. Anything that interests me, I try it out on myself. By the virtue of being a healthy individual, this has relatively been easy for me and my body mostly supports me through such experiments. Had I not been healthy and still did those experiments, will I get through easily? god knows and hence I say, this is an area where proper research and information is necessary before experimenting and this book provides you that. Bursts a lot of myths and increases your confidence in your ability to fast.
I started with different kinds of fast with different intensities and frequencies. It was hard initially because I was doing it with lack of information and that's when my interest grew in the field. I have suffered through headaches until a friend suggested me to drink enough water. I fainted and felt dizzy many a times until a friend informed me of missing salt. My stomach went upset too. And add to this the common misconception of, your body can't handle hunger and hence will feel loss of energy. Well psychological if you believe this, you feel it then. So did I. I desperately needed expert advice and this book has came to the rescue.
This book prepares you, with all those advices, correction of misconceptions backed by science and a lot of motivation by fasting all stars stories. Reading through this book I added a milestone to my fasting journey by smoothly doing a 36 hour water fast. When I finish this book, I've already successful repeated it 4 times, that marks a month and the experience has been far better than my early fasts and broke all fears that existed when I started. I encourage everyone to read it so they understand the intricacies and break myths. A big hurdle I've faced in my fasting journey is the discouragement by my friends and family and that comes from all the misconceptions that are widespread. It's hard to convince them and I think this book could be a great help there too.

Understanding fast & feast is what this delivers.

If you want to understand how food works and how can we reach our optimum health using fast & feast protocols, this book is for you.
I have been following Dr. Fung & Jimmy since long and this book seriously is a game changer. I have been attempting intermittent fasting & keto but now I know what exactly I need to change to enjoy a healthy life.
