I’m Ready to Join the Program

  1. Consult your physician to keep him/her advised of dietary changes and to arrange medical follow up and blood work as needed. S/he should provide instruction with regards to any necessary changes to medications while undergoing dietary changes. IDM provides dietary guidance only and takes no responsibility for any medical decisions. That discussion is between your physician and yourself.  Please see the video from Dr. Fung at the bottom of this page on the importance of fasting with medical supervision.
  2. Select your Educator below for your online consultation. You will be able to choose a date and time that works best for you.  A confirmation link will be emailed to you 12 hours before your appointment. Click on the link and follow the instructions to connect via Zoom. After you have your initial consultation,  you will be provided with instructions on how to purchase a coaching package, or schedule a one-on-one consultation.

Once you join:

  1. We will email you a contract and informed consent. Please read carefully, sign, and return via email us, along with payment.
  2. You will have access to all online resources including introductory module, E-books and video courses on fasting. We encourage careful review of all materials for maximal benefit.
  3. Arrange follow up appointments online according to your own needs. Small group sessions provide the peer support that fosters an environment of mutual support and compliance. Studies confirm that group counselling is far more effective than individual appointments.
