"Life in the Fast Lane"

Fasting Journal 22:  A book review of The Complete Guide to Fasting:  Heal Your Body Through Intermittent, Alternate-Day and Extended Fasting, by Dr. Jason Fung with Jimmy Moore

Reading and studying books on nutrition, health and wellness is a passion.  My library is filled with amazing reading material.  One of my most prized books is The Complete Guide to Fasting.  In my humble opinion, it's life-changing.

It covers, in layman's terms, what fasting is, how it works and why it's so darn good for you.  Not just for weight loss but for overall health.  And aren't we all after a healthy body, mind and soul?

There are "success stories" peppered throughout the book which makes everything relatable.  Stories about men and women who've cured their Type 2 diabetes, PCOS, come off blood pressure meds, improved their cholesterol numbers and so much more. 

The book describes the various types of fasts, provides tips and an FAQ section so that everything is covered in detail.  How to fast, what to expect, the importance of hydration and just about everything is covered in this 304 page soft cover book.

Read about the various fasting protocols and how to implement them to suit your lifestyle.  There's the 24-hour fast, 36-hour fast, 42-hour fast and 7 to 14 day fasts.

If you've ever been curious about fasting and how it could help solve your health issues then pick up this book and read it.  You'll be glad you did.  Mine is beginning to show a lot of wear because I use it as a guide all the time.

The book references all of the author's sources which is great for those who want to dig even deeper.

I'll be consulting the book next week as I decide which protocol(s) I'll be using in my next 4-week experiment.
