Dr. Shabnam Das Kar is a consultant in Functional Medicine. Her primary areas of focus are Autoimmunity and Metabolic Dysfunction. A few years ago she was an observer at Dr. Jason Fung and Megan Ramos’ IDM Program (now called The Fasting Method) in Toronto, Canada. This is what she had to say:
“I was blown away by the amazing results they were getting on the Intermittent Fasting Program. People with multiple diseases like diabetes, heart disease , high blood pressure were losing weight and keeping the weight off!! They were getting off their diabetes medications and insulin………..something that is almost unheard of outside the low-carb, intermittent fasting world!!
In my primary practice, I have many patients asking for weight loss. But earlier I never felt confident in recommending any weight loss plan because almost all my life I have been dealing with excess weight (I am still a work in progress!).
When I incorporated Intermittent Fasting into my life and got great results, I decided that this is a program that I should create for my patients (and friends and family as well!).
“Like many of you, I had done the calorie-counting-low-fat diets, which never worked long-term! I got better results with low carbohydrate food but I found it very difficult to stick to my extremely low level of carbohydrate tolerance. “
Many of you are vegetarians. I realized that without incorporating Intermittent Fasting and Time Restricted Eating it is nearly impossible for you to achieve the results you desire!”
