Therapeutic Fasting with Dr. Jason Fung

Biohacker's Podcast

Mar 21 2023 • 44 mins

Dr. Jason Fung was born in 1973 and trained in Los Angeles and Toronto as a kidney specialist. He founded The Fasting Method to provide evidence-based advice for weight loss and managing blood sugars, focusing on low carbohydrate diets and intermittent fasting.

Many of today’s chronic medical issues are related to diet and obesity, yet treatments are focused on medications and surgeries. If you don’t deal with the root cause, the problem never improves. A dietary problem requires a dietary solution.

Dr. Fung is the author of The Obesity Code, The Complete Guide to Fasting, and The Diabetes Code. He is also the scientific editor of the Journal of Insulin Resistance and the managing director of the nonprofit organization Public Health Collaboration (Canada), an international group dedicated to promoting sound nutritional information.

This presentation was filmed during Biohacker Summit Toronto, Canada, in 2018.
