Real-life advice and guidelines to take the guesswork and the fear out of fasting from Dr Jason Fung, Eve Mayer and Megan Ramos.
Intermittent fasting-restricting calorie intake for a prescribed number of hours for a set number of days-offers wide-ranging health benefits, from lowering blood pressure to reducing risk factors for diseases like diabetes and cancer, to promoting longevity and increasing cognitive function.
But for many people, the idea of a long-term intermittent fasting lifestyle remains confusing. What is the best method? Do you need to fast every day? What do you do on non-fasting days? How can you fast and prepare family meals or go on business lunches-or when you get hungry if you don't eat regularly?
Life in the Fasting Lane is the guide to fasting that everyone has been waiting for. The book sets three initial goals: Start Your Fasting Engine, Find Your Fasting Lane, and Win the Race. Each goal is broken down into ten manageable steps; readers can begin with one or two steps per day and progress at their own pace. For example, skipping breakfast may be tough for people who are used to eating cereal and toast every morning. Others might already skip breakfast, and can jump ahead to skipping lunch. Fung, Ramos, and Mayer know every person's physiological and psychological response to food restriction is different, and they're here to help readers find the tools and strategies that will work best for them.
Life in the Fasting Lane combines Mayer and Ramos' years of personal experience with Dr. Fung's clinical experience to create a life-changing guide to developing a sustainable and beneficial fasting routine.
