A recent study suggests that 75 percent of the weight-loss response in obesity is predicted by insulin levels.29 Not willpower. Not caloric intake. Not peer support or peer pressure. Not exercise. Just insulin. - Jason Fung
Carbohydrates should be enjoyed in their natural, whole, unprocessed form. Many traditional diets built around carbohydrates cause neither poor health nor obesity. Remember: the toxicity in much Western food lies in the processing, rather than in the food itself. - Jason Fung
Our weight plateaus and ruthlessly climbs back up to our original body set weight, even as we keep dieting. Clearly, changing what we eat is not always enough. - Jason Fung
Throughout most of human history, obesity has been rare. Individuals in traditional societies eating traditional diets seldom became obese, even in times of abundant food. Jason Fung
Even the National Cholesterol Education Program admits, The percentage of total fat in the diet, independent of caloric intake, has not been documented to be related to body weight. - Jason Fung

Book Summary Overview
Obesity is a bigger problem than anyone imagined and its rates have increased rapidly over the years. Since its an epidemic spreading its tentacles worldwide, its now critical that we find a solution to this nagging problem. There are way too many studies and trials conducted out there, and while some diets may suggest that you consume foods with low carbohydrates, other diets may suggest something else. It can get pretty confusing, and thats perhaps why most dieters give up.
"The Obesity Code" focuses on the intake of traditional, unprocessed foods that have been forgotten long ago. This book covers everything from the science behind the foods you're eating to what you should eat at each meal. Understanding diet and exercise are NOT the key to weight loss is the first step to breaking the Obesity Code.

- Chapter: how obesity became an epidemic
-- Takeaway: when the AHA announced that people need to consume high ...
What? There's no mention of the AHA in the chapter; how does it suddenly appear in the takeaway? This sort of distanced chapters/takeaways seem more common than not; it's nearly as if chapters follow one plot and takeaways another.
- Chapter: the overfeeding paradox
-- excerpt: "... after the tests were stopped, the participants returned to their normal body weight, thereby proving that just like overeating wasn't responsible for permanent weight gain, eating less wouldn't cause weight loss that lasted forever."
Nonsense! Showing the one relation doesn't automatically prove the other! Please don't bother describing experiments if conclusions drawn aren't supported by them.
There's more, but I'm unwilling to waste more time than I have already.
Again -- I've read the original "The Obesity Code", *enjoyed* it and consider it the best new idea I've come across in describing obesity: it's well-composed, well-written, logically developed, and persuasively concluded. By contrast this "summary" should be used to clean dog p**p.
If it turns out this summary really was written by Dr. Fung, I'll keep it as a mark of respect for the work that went into the original; if it turns out the summary was written by somebody else, a ghost writer, I'm demanding my money back!
