A fascinating and insightful book

This book is easy to read and understand, plenty of scientific detail but not overwhelming.
if you are considering IF for health benefits or weight loss this book is a great place to start. It seems the secret to unlocking a multitude of benefits lies in clean fasting.

Excellent resource

Toyed with IF for years therefore very glad I listened to this book as filled many of the gaps. The definition of the clean fast being the key takeaway

There is newer/better research out there...

The objection I have to this book is that the author is not a fasting or obesity researcher, and she seems to be heavily pushing some ideas that are about her own approach to things. She says again and again that she's researched things, but is leaving out the most current research. For example, she prefers one huge meal at night and likes snacking and a 'delay don't deny' approach that could lead to binging and also spreads the impression that you can have snacks and sugar and unhealthy foods and everything will be fine, when modern research is proving that is not the case, and it is the type of food you eat that makes you fat, not just when you eat or how much.

There's lots of research now showing that eating sugary foods ups insulin levels and leads to insulin resistance, so if you're eating one big bomb of a meal per day and still eating sugary foods, your metabolism will be out of whack and you may well need to 'deny' certain foods most of the time if you want to be healthy and avoid insulin resistance and diabetes.

So she's sprinkling a little reserach in, but ignoring research that doesn't support her idea of 'delay, don't deny.' You do have to deny (most of the time) things that are well proven to cause negative metabolic changes and are empty junk not supporting the body's nutritional needs. If you're eating them, you're not eating things that are good for you and that will help you lose weight and maintain that loss.

She on the one hand says one must 'clean fast' on only water during a fast and not even allowing a spot of cream in coffee, yet research has shown that that won't affect anything. Then she turns around and says that you can have that ice cream and cookies 'later' when the reality is those will deeply impact your insulin levels and health as empty calories, while a dollop of cream in your coffee on a fast won't affect anything..

Intermittent fasting can be useful, but the way you eat and what you eat is critcially important to maintaining your health.

If you want to read a book that is based on modern research (by legitimate researchers), then get 'The Obesity Code' by Dr. Fung. He's also written books about fasting that are better and based on science rather than the idea that you can gorge yourself once a day and eat sugar and empty snacks and everything will be fine. It won't.

Where are the PDFs? I got the audible version.

I am listening to this book right now. It is very interesting. But, is there a link to get the PDFs that the author talks about?

Thanks

How to access PDF

I haven’t listened to the book yet, but I was able to find out how to access the PDF by talking to a rep via chat.

In the audio player window in the app, click the three buttons in the top right and click on the accompanying PDF button.

In desktop, go to audible.com/lib and on the right hand side of the title, it will say Listen Now, View PDF, and Download. Click view PDF and it will prompt a download.

Hope this helps others!

Pdf please

I have the obesity code and the fasting guide by Dr. Jason Fung. These are excellent books mainly because of the added pdf. I am an audio and visual learner. I would like to see the charts, graphs, quizzes mentioned in this book!

Where is the PDF?

The author refers to the PDF in the book quite a few times, and I would benefit from seeing the information in addition to hearing it. It is impossible to remembers the details of the program on a day to day basis without seeing it written out. Is there any way to get the PDF, I am not the only reader requesting this.

Why is Audible not addressing the fact that the PDF
s are not attached? The content is fine, but, its missing something that was paid for when we received the book.

Good information, but so repetitive

I was doing IF almost by accident so I bought this book to understand the science behind it. The important info was good, and the author laid it out in a way that was very easy to understand. What I found annoying is that the book ends up being overly repetitive. It was made clear over and over again that a clean fast consists of water, black coffee and tea with no flavor. I don't know why we were still talking about that 8 hours into the book.

No accompanying charts to review:(

The author discusses charts and lists of food but there are no accompanying PDFs to review.
Hence not a good audible purchase.

Informative and Inspiring!

I had this book on pre-order for awhile, awaiting it's release, and it did not disappoint! Gin Stephens has such a conversational writing style and distills down a vast amount of research into this book, along with years of personal experience, plus very practical and helpful guidelines - appropriate for those just reading about intermittent fasting for the very first time as well as long time experienced fasters! So easy to read/listen to, yet definitely not lacking in depth!
