Megan Ramos and Dr. Jason Fung have joined forces to deliver a comprehensive guide to understanding and combating insulin resistance in their new book, The LCHF Cookbook.

Toxic levels of insulin, better known as insulin resistance, are caused by a lifetime of poor dietary habits and are the number-one contributing factor to the development of obesity and metabolic syndrome. Through years of research and clinical practice, Ramos and Dr. Fung have created a revolutionary program to combat insulin resistance and control diabetes and other obesity-related health conditions. Their Intensive Dietary Management Program promotes strategies that have been proven to lower insulin levels and aid in weight loss. The approach is twofold, combining intermittent fasting with a nutritional program focused on eating only whole and unrefined foods, lowering intake of refined grains and added sugars, and increasing intake of natural fats. This synergy will put you on a path to lifelong health and the remediation of many health conditions.

The LCHF Cookbook will show you how to find the right fasting regimen that is customized to your needs and how to break through weight-loss plateaus while following a whole-foods-based diet. This book features more than 110 delicious recipes designed to help you achieve success and maintain it over the long term. All of Ramos’s recipes are made from whole foods and adhere to the guidelines of the program.

Sample recipes include:

·       Steak Fajitas
·       Turkey-Stuffed Bell Peppers
·       Lemon Dill Salmon with Asparagus
·       Avocado-Stuffed Deviled Eggs
·       Tabbouleh
·       Ginger Chicken Lettuce Cups
·       and many more!

Dr. Jason Fung earned his medical degree at the University of Toronto, where he also completed his internal medicine residency before heading to UCLA for a fellowship in nephrology (a branch of medicine concerned with the kidneys). He currently practices as a kidney specialist in Toronto.

During the course of treating thousands of patients, it became clear to Dr. Fung that the epidemic of type 2 diabetes and obesity was getting worse. The prevailing dietary recommendations for reducing dietary fat and calories were clearly ineffective. In response, he founded Intensive Dietary Management ( to provide a unique treatment focus for type 2 diabetes and obesity that promotes simple yet effective dietary changes rather than focusing on medications.
