In today’s interview, Dr. Fung discusses his new book, The Diabetes Code; how he defines diabetes and why that makes such an important difference in treatment; how diabetes can be reversed; and how conventional treatment only masks symptoms and does nothing to actually treat the issue. He also talks about how high blood sugar is like overflowing garbage in your kitchen and reveals the two most important steps to lower your blood sugar and reverse type 2 diabetes.
Dr. Fung discusses how overconsumption of carbohydrates (like fructose) raises insulin, causes insulin resistance, and contributes to the storage of fat. He talks about why eating fat does not cause insulin resistance and fat storage (contrary to what other experts are saying). He also dives into the topic of fasting and goes over both advanced and beginner strategies for getting started to help improve blood sugar health.
