Fasting is not about starving oneself. When done right, it's an incredibly effective therapeutic approach that produces amazing results regardless of diet plan. In fact, Toronto-based nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung has used a variety of fasting protocols with more than 1,000 patients, with fantastic success. In "The Complete Guide to Fasting" he has teamed up with international bestselling author and veteran health podcaster Jimmy Moore to explain what fasting is really about, why it's so important, and how to fast in a way that improves health. Together, they make fasting as a therapeutic approach both practical and easy to understand.
The Complete Guide to Fasting explains:
• why fasting is actually good for health
• who can benefit from fasting (and who won't)
• the history of fasting
• the various ways to fast: intermittent, alternate-day, and extended fasting
• what to expect when starting to fast
• how to track progress while fasting
• the weight loss effects of fasting
• how to ward off potential negative effects from fasting
The book also provides tools to help readers get started and get through their fasts, including a 7-Day Kick-Start Fasting Plan and healing liquid recipes.
Nina Teicholz demuestra cómo la dieta baja en grasa que la medicina nos ha recomendado es un experimento en la población entera con consecuencias desastrosas para nuestra salud.
Por décadas, nos han dicho que la mejor dieta del mundo está libre de grasas, ¿pero qué pasaría si una dieta baja en grasas fuera el verdadero problema? ¿Y si los alimentos que hemos estado evitando son la clave para revertir enfermedades que aquejan a nuestra sociedad?
Esta narración da un giro de 180 grados a la sabiduría convencional acerca de todas las grasas con una revolucionaria premisa: entre más grasa comamos -incluyendo la saturada- mejor será nuestra salud y bienestar.
