Jason Fung is a well-known expert on nutrition, and is also the author of several books including the best sellers â€œThe Obesity Codeâ€ and "The Complete Guide to Fasting: Heal Your Body Through Intermittent, Alternate-Day, and Extended Fasting.â€ He talks with the Commander today about our misguided understandings of nutrition and gives us insights into the importance of timing and fasting in general. Learn how: There are eating â€œwindowsâ€ where you should be eating, and times when you shouldnâ€™t be. You can either be storing fat, or burning it. Not both at the same time.

#59 - Jason Fung, M.D.: Fasting as a potent antidote to obesity, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and the many symptoms of metabolic illness
In this episode, Jason Fung, nephrologist and best-selling author, shares his experiences utilizing an individualized approach to fasting to successfully treat thousands of overweight, metabolically ill, and diabetic patients, and why being a doctor who specializes in kidney disease gives him a unique insight into early indications of metabolic disease. We also have a great discussion on insulin resistance where Jason makes the case that we should actually think of hyperinsulinemia as the underlying problem. We also discuss the difference between time-restricted feeding, intermittent fasting, and dietary restriction (e.g., low-carb) and how they can be used to attack the root cause of T2D, metabolic syndrome, and obesity. We also have a fascinating discussion about the limitations of evidence-based medicine which leads to a conversation where we compare and contrast the scientific disciplines of medicine and biology to theoretical physics.Â Â We discuss: Comparing scientific disciplines: Medicine and biology versus physics [7:25]; The limitations of evidence-based medicine [12:30]; Early signs of metabolic disease: How specializing kidney disease gives Jason a unique insight into early indications of illness [20:50] Insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, and the overflow paradigm [29:30]; Why the common treatments for type 2 diabetes seem to make things worse [42:30]; How hyperinsulinemia (not insulin resistance) drives metabolic syndrome [53:15]; Insulin and weight gain, and using fasting to empty the cells of glucose [59:30]; The two step process of developing type 2 diabetes and how they are both manifestations of hyperinsulinemia [1:03:15]; NAFLD and hyperinsulinemia: A vicious cycle [1:08:30]; Are the features and symptoms of diabetes actually protective?
