Dr. Jason Fung trained in Los Angeles and Toronto as a kidney specialist. It soon became obvious that conventional medical treatments were failing patients. The problem is obvious, in hindsight. Many of today’s medical issues are related to obesity and if you don’t deal with the root cause, the other problems don’t get better either.
Following core physiologic principles, he founded the Intensive Dietary Management Program (IDMprogram.com) to provide a unique treatment focus for type 2 diabetes and obesity: rather than focusing on medications, this clinic focuses on dietary changes that are simple yet effective. He pioneered the clinical use of therapeutic fasting for weight loss and type 2 diabetes reversal.
Dr. Fung is the author of The Obesity Code, The Complete Guide to Fasting and The Diabetes Code. He is also the scientific editor of the Journal of Insulin Resistance and the managing director of the non-profit organization Public Health Collaboration (Canada), an international group dedicated to promoting evidence based nutritional information.
