Weight loss – so vital to improve health – is a goal most people are unable to achieve by themselves. It was clear to Dr. Jason Fung and Megan Ramos that conventional dieting was not an effective strategy. After extensive research, they began incorporating intermittent fasting strategies. This directly contradicted standard dietary advice at the time to eat 6-8 small meals throughout the day, but the science was clear that intermittent fasting was a time-tested, effective weight loss and health improvement intervention.
The initial results were simply astounding, and those with type 2 diabetes were quickly coming off all their medications. The first intermittent fasting clinic in North America was founded, the Intensive Dietary Management (IDM) clinic.
The remarkable results achieved with intermittent fasting quickly spread, and people from all over the world wanted to learn more about this ancient, yet revolutionary method of getting healthier. An online program was developed to provide the same education and support regardless of someone’s physical location.
The Fasting Method aims to revolutionize healthcare by providing the education and support needed for people to improve their health and reverse type 2 diabetes. TFM is committed to both clinical work with individuals, research and teaching to professionals.
