About Us

Losing weight can improve your health in many ways – reducing blood sugars and blood pressure which lowers your risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer. But it’s not easy. That’s where The Fasting Method can help. Here’s our story.

Conventional calorie-counting advice was simply not an effective strategy for weight loss. After extensive scientific research, Dr. Jason Fung and Megan Ramos started using intermittent fasting strategies and the results were simply astounding. The first intermittent fasting clinic in North America was founded, the forerunner to today’s Fasting Method Community. We continue to publish original research on the use of intermitttent fasting for weight loss and the reversal of type 2 diabetes.

Read the BMJ Case Report

By 2014, news of the remarkable results with fasting spread, and we developed our online coaching program to help people from all over the world. The Obesity Code  was released in 2016, providing the scientific basis for weight loss. The book has sold close to a million copies and is one of the bestselling nutrition books of the last decade. The Complete Guide to Fasting  provides more practical guidance with recipes from Megan Ramos. Check out our other best-selling books here.

The Fasting Method now offers a fasting-friendly Community, online personalized coaching, as well as health consultations with trained medical specialists.
