Publisher's Summary

Summary of The Obesity Code by Jason Fung | Includes Analysis

Preview:

The Obesity Code addresses the history, causes, and treatments of obesity and today's rising obesity rates. By understanding it through scientific and social study, obesity becomes less of a blanket term for metabolic complications and a more tangible problem with real, though not widely practiced, solutions.

The main problem with treating obesity is that many doctors and their obese patients don't know what actually causes obesity. Often, health experts believe that weight gain results from consuming too many calories while not expending enough calories, a theory known as "calories in, calories out." However, decades of research has proven that this obesity model is problematic and oversimplified. Calorie consumption and expenditure are not independent of each other. If people decrease calorie consumption in an effort to lose weight, their body compensates by slowing down processes such as metabolism to expend fewer calories. Also, exercise is not nearly as instrumental in weight loss as was once thought.

    "Pointless"

    Didn't share the part of the book that I was interested in; the prescriptive diet and lifestyle instructions. I think these little summaries are pointless.

    "not worth the money or your time"

    very high level details which fail to provide any meaningful information. if you must, just buy the book and pass on this wasteful format.

    "Bad takes not even edited out."

    I was breezing through this short synopsis of the book only to discover a mistake left in 14 minutes six seconds before finishing. Seriousl,y you couldn't even edit out your bad take? Boo, hiss!

    Story
    "Very misleading and overproced"

    I could summarise what it said in 2 sentences. very misleading and overpriced. One to avoid as it's not clear on a phone screen that it's a VERY brief summary of the books contents
