Rank #1: The Obesity Code Podcast Pilot with Dr. Jason Fung and Megan Ramos
Rank #2: The Obesity Code with Dr. Jason Fung
Obesity and diabetes are epidemic, we all agree. Dr. Fung focuses on insulin and insulin response rather than on carbs as being the only thing that raises insulin. In his clinic, he has hundreds of patients that are all controlling their insulin, and therefore their diabetes. Fasting is one of the most effective methods that they use.

Rank #18: Sugar
Richard mistakenly referred to the ancient greeks discovering that Diabetes is related to sugar by tasting it .... actually that's not true. In 1674, it was English physician Thomas Willis discovered that the urine of a diabetic Patient was "wonderfully sweet as if imbued with Honey". The ancient greeks however first noticed that people who had diabetes had insatiable thirst and peed all the time - so the name diabetes is greek for "Siphon". They have a sense of humor those ancient greeks.
Richard said (11:25) that "Lustig says ... that fructose causes insulin sensitivity" ... but of course he intended to say "fructose causes the insulin resistance that ultimately makes glucose an acute poison"
