What is the perfect treatment for type 2 diabetes – and for weight loss? Many people would say a strict LCHF diet – I would have said that myself, at one time. But that may just be a good start.
Many readers have told me about the Canadian nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung and his exciting work. But it was only recently that I got to meet him and record this interview.
Dr. Fung treats people with severe type 2 diabetes, and to them LCHF may not be effective enough – even if it’s a good starting point. Dr. Fung has found something significantly more effective. And as a side effect it’s also likely to be the world’s most effective method for weight loss, whether you have diabetes or not.
In this 12 minute interview – that you can see above – he goes through all the basics.
Observe: This treatment is extremely effective. If you have diabetes and take blood sugar lowering medication (especially insulin injections) you may need to reduce the doses a lot to avoid potentially dangerous hypoglycemia. You may instantly become too healthy for your medication.
There is a 32 minute second part to the interview, where Dr. Fung goes through many more practical tips and answers common questions. This second part is on the membership pages (free one month trial):
Here are a few of the things Dr. Fung mentions in the full interview:
- Different lengths of fasting that work well (including very extreme options)
- Why people usually find it much easier to fast then they believe
- Possible side effects and how to handle them
- Additional health benefits of fasting
- Medicines that can be problematic when fasting
- What reactions he gets from the doctors and dietitians he works with
- Do you still need to eat breakfast?
- And much more
All this and much more you can learn in the second 32 minute part, on the membership site.
