The Fasting Method - Free Resources to Support Fasting

The Fasting Method - Free Resources to Support Fasting

In this blog post, we tell you about The Fasting Method's new website and free resources available to you from this leading authority on fasting and our top 5 article picks from those free resources.

Dr. Jason Fung has a brand new book, The Cancer Code. Having read all of his work, the best part of this book is that it is NOT a prescriptive what to do but he has outlined the history of cancer research and the learnings from studies to date. It is a fascinating read and I highly recommend it.

What is The Fasting Method?

The Fasting Method was founded by Dr. Jason Fung (Toronto-based nephrologist and leading expert on intermittent fasting) and Megan Ramos (clinical educator) to simply assist anyone’s health journey and help them achieve their health goals. They do this with intermittent fasting and simple-to-follow time-restricted eating strategies as natural methods to provide support for weight loss, type 2 diabetes, chronic disease improvement, and general healthy living.

The Fasting Method offers 2 core services:

  1. A subscription-based membership community - providing goal-focused education, peer support, group fasting challenges, an integrated intermittent fasting tracking app, and access to hundreds of resources and guides on a variety of topics!
  2. Personalized coaching - 1 on 1 virtual consultation for more personal support on specific issues

The best thing about The Fasting Method, though, is that their new website already has so many free resources! Dr. Fung and Megan Ramos have written so many informative blogs up on their website (addressing any questions you might have about fasting and sharing their expert knowledge) in their mission to make healthy living accessible to anyone.

Speaking of accessibility, The Fasting Method is now available all over the world, providing services in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, and Arabic! So feel free to share the blog with your families, friends and co workers.

Top 5 Fasting Method Blogs to Read

The pandemic has had a significant impact on our health journeys. Stress, loneliness, working from home or under challenging conditions, dependent care, financial pressures and so many more challenges. 

One thing that Jason and Megan talk about is Fasting is Free! The Fasting Method has pages upon pages of free resources to re-ignite your focus on your health or get you started - knowledge is power!

We perused the website and have chosen 5 blog posts that we found extremely useful in re committing to fasting basics.

1. The Top 5 Benefits of Intermittent Fasting No One Talks About 

Dr. Fung has worked wonders for weight loss, type 2 diabetes reversal, and general healthy living, but there are so many other surprising benefits of intermittent fasting. Check out this short blog for a quick overview of how and why fasting benefits all areas of your life.

2. How to Fast During Stressful Times 

Fasting is already a challenge to make it a habit and these unprecedented times we're facing can really throw a wrench into those plans. The Fasting Method wrote this special article for fasters who may have found it harder to get back into the groove of their lifestyle (and to inspire anyone who's thinking of starting fasting - a global pandemic doesn't have to stop you!).

3. Fasting Basics: How to get started fasting?

Taking on this new journey can be daunting. What is intermittent fasting? What are the rules? How does intermittent fasting work? Megan Ramos, The Fasting Method co-founder who has also used intermittent fasting for her health journey, wrote this blog to share her tips and insights and show how accessible fasting really is.

4. Controlling Hunger Part 1 and Part 2 

This is undoubtedly (at least for me) the toughest part of fasting. Fasting through cravings can require a lot of mental strength and dedication (for me personally) and reading the science behind what causes cravings can be extremely supportive and helpful. This two-parter blog series written by Dr. Fung goes through the science behind why we feel hungry and leverages that to put together science-based tips, which is an incredible refresher to educate and inspire us.

5. What can you have during a fast? and Five Tips for How to Break Your Intermittent of Extended Fast

Okay, we cheated and grouped these two blogs to round out our "top 5" picks, but it can be hard to even understand which foods you can have during your fast AND after your fast - there’s a lot of competing info out there! These two blogs as incredibly informative and serve as an awesome guide with specific tips!
