Dr. Mindy Pelz’ Book Study on Jason Fung’s The Obesity Code



Fasting Motivation 25 – Dr Mindy Part 1

see the notes for a link to Dr. Mindy’s playlist regarding the Obesity Code by Dr Jason Fung


These are some of Dr. Mindy’s Points


Jason gives a bunch of reasons why calorie restriction doesn’t work.

it kills metabolism, people lose weight, but then gain it back, maybe even more weight because their metabolism has been reduced


calorie restriction is a roller coaster of dieting

worry about one hormone and that’s insulin

when insulin is high, you are going to store fat

when its down for a long period of time, you are going to burn fat

its that simple


Dr Mindy has a group, the resetter group, you can join


Jason fung takes us back through our history and shows us why we are the most obese country in the world


the premise has been that you have to have extreme discipline to lose weight

eat less move more doesn’t work


instead, remember this:

don’t eat less, eat less often


weight loss is not an issue of discipline, its an issue of hormonal control


look at alcoholism as a similar problem

you sometimes have to get to the underneath problem,

get to the why have you been eating the way that you’ve been eating

change your relationship to food


in 50s, heart disease was the big villain

we got it wrong, we thought it was fat

but now we know that sugar and carbohydrates have a bigger impact on heart disease
