Dr. Jason Fung (IG: @drjasonfung) is a physician, researcher and New York Times bestselling author and currently practices as a nephrologist (kidney specialist).
He is the co-founder of The Fasting Method, which provides the education, tools and community needed to successfully implement intermittent fasting.
Today we’re discussing Jason’s book, The Diabetes Code: Prevent and Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally.
These days, most doctors, dietitians and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes a life sentence that only gets worse over time. Throughout our conversation you’ll learn this isn’t the case and that it’s totally reversible with diet and lifestyle modifications. Stick around and learn exactly what to do to reverse diabetes without medication.
In this episode, we discuss:
