Publisher's Summary

Fasting is emerging as one of the most exciting medical advancements in recent memory. Its list of benefits extends far beyond weight loss and includes improved cardiovascular health, lower blood pressure, protection against cancer, and better cognitive function. 

While many of us may be able to handle the physical effects of fasting, the mental and social challenges are often daunting. There are so many opportunities to eat during the day, and sometimes it's rude not to participate in meals. What do you do with the time you used to spend eating? How do you navigate social situations while fasting? How can a food addict mentally prepare for a fast? 

Life in the Fasting Lane fills all of these gaps, and more, by bringing together three leading voices in the fasting community to provide a book written for both the body and the mind, helping people cope with all aspects - physical, social, emotional, medical - of fasting. It blends cutting-edge medical and scientific information about fasting with the perspective of a patient who has battled obesity the majority of her adult life.

Excellent book for new and seasoned fasters

I've read a number of books on fasting and all have provided different perspectives and ideas on fasting. This is hands down one of the best books I've read on the subject and I particularly like the different perspectives from a Doctor, a clinician and a woman who has struggled with weight her entire adult life. IF became a way of life for me almost 6 months ago and I'm feeling amazing. I started off slowly and gradually built up my fasting muscle. I've also been able to keep things pretty flexible mixing up my eating windrow lengths etc. I very recently did my first 47 hour fast which I never before would have thought possible! Weight loss has been gradual (from 73 to 67kg so far) and my body composition changes are noticeable. My energy is high and as time goes on it's become easier to incorporate into my lifestyle. I hope it does for you too!

Weightloss is about controlling HUNGER!

Read it then start. Or, read it as you fast. I have followed Dr Fung for ages, then listened to my Dr and stopped fasting and stacked on weight which only fasting could control. Now, I ignore the Dr and am doing the extended fasts my insulin resistance requires. I have hope again, I am no longer saving for the gastric balloon. I listen to this book over and over to support myself and the mindset of "Weightloss is about controlling HUNGER, not calories". I did a 6.5 day fast listening to this book.

Practical fasting

Fabulous insight into practical day to day fasting. Informative with scientific background and lay person experience too. Essentially saying that fasting isn’t one size fits all. Experiment with different ways to fast as it should fit into your life so that it can be a lifestyle not a diet.

Probably a good intro

Fung et al are excellent on the implementation of fasting, especially the longer versions that diabetics may need. Their presentations on keto and / or low carb diets and their scientific basis are less polished, but may be adequate for beginners. Numerical details re carb amounts, GI, and GL were poorly translated into audio format. Nonetheless, hats off to these 3 for their groundbreaking life-saving work.

May just save your life!

I needed the scientific background this book provided. I have got to my weight goal and am much healthier and have a huge amount of energy. Everyone should read this book and learn about IF, it would fix the health system!

For beginners

This book is good for people who are not yet used to IF or are failing at it and need a bit of motivation. It’s too basic if you have been on the IF lane for a while and are achieving your goals.
