Megan Ramos began volunteering on research projects with Dr. Jason Fung almost 20 years ago, while she was still in high school. At that time, Dr. Fung was just starting his career as a nephrologist, and has since become the well-known author of The Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight and The Complete Guide to Fasting.
Ramos’ journey with Dr. Fung really took off while they were researching the effect of fasting on weight loss and overall health. “Fasting…saved my life…it is such a great tool to help get people into a place of good health before they start to experience complications because it takes us a while to change our dietary habits,” says Megan Ramos.
In 2012, Ramos founded Intensive Dietary Management, a program for which she continues to serve as director, guiding people through the process of achieving health through fasting. Among other topics, Ramos discusses the different fasting regimens that are best suited for different individuals, the ways in which people who are new to fasting can ease into it, the main challenges that are likely to be encountered, and the ways in which to avoid the physiological side effects that can occur within the first couple weeks of fasting.
