We’ve talked about Dr. Jason Fung pretty extensively on this blog, particularly in our blog post around diabetes. He writes/lectures often on the impact of the modern diet (many snacks, increased sugar and refined grains, etc) on the diabesity epidemic plaguing our country.
In 2018, he gave a lecture at the CrossFit Health Conference in Madison, WI titled “Fasting as a Therapeutic Option for Weight Loss.” The actual talk covers so much more:
