  • "LIPIDOSIS 101"

    Overall

    If you need inspiration to get you going on dieting for 2011, this will do it! Although the basic principles are known to those of us who are avid readers on how to lose weight, and this book essentially covers those basics, this author is very good at explaining difficult material such that all can understand. Further, there is a surprising twist that leaves one with an "Aha" experience. We all know which foods we should cut out, but do we REALLY understand why? If not, then one is not really motivated to do what is necessary. This author motivates!

    I really appreciated the narrator's slow careful enunciation of this difficult material.

  • Eat Move Sleep: How Small Choices Lead to Big Changes

    "Made an immediate impact on my life"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this audiobook to many friends. There are multiple reasonsI have recommend this book: 1) The book is broken down in a manner that makes it easy to implement Tom's recommendations for living a better life, 2) The material is straightforward, easy to understand, and research based, 3) Tom does a phenomenal job of providing memorable phrases that immediately impact the reader and are easy to remember such as "if you want to do more, sleep more."


    What about Tom Rath’s performance did you like?

    Tom does a phenomenal job of relating all of his material to his personal challenges with his health.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Eat Move Sleep?

    1) Everything I eat has an impact on how I feel and perform. Moving forward, when I want to perform my best, I will eat the best foods. I understand that many people may find Tom's recommendations to rigid to apply at each and every meal, but if you are able to make even small improvements on a daily basis then you will have accomplished a great deal. 2) Movement throughout the day is more important than I gave it credit. I am a health and fitness fanatic but I am guilty of doing all of my activity in 1-2 hour bursts 3-5 days a week and doing little at other times. I have begun implementing Tom's recommendation of regular activity at every moment possible and it has made a huge impact on my family. I take my dogs for long walks daily now, not only when it is convenient for me. This gets me out of the house enjoying nature and it is great for the health of my furry children. Speaking of children, I take every moment I can to play with my 15 month son. This has helped build an even stronger bond between my son and I that I appreciate so very much. 3) My favorite quote from the book is "if you want to do more, sleep more." Everyone has heard of the importance of a good nights sleep, and yet many people are getting fewer hours of sleep in order to "get more done." I am guilty of doing this and yet once I heard Tom's words something clicked and now I view sleep differently. I now view sleep as if it is one of my tasks on my to-do list and address it with the same sense of urgency I addressed those tasks.

  • "Its more than stop eating and drink..."

    37 of 38 helpful votes

    I agree with the one comment about this book is just more or less stop eating and drinking carbs, but I am glad I GOT this book anyway because its more than that. It is nice to finally understand how the body really works around getting fat and why we get fat and the logic behind so many myths and other diets and why things don't work, fail or fall short of losing weight. So it was refreshing to get a handle on why it is a good idea and what happens when we eat and drink carbs along with our HDL and LDL levels and how that effects our cells and our problem with getting fat. This book is going to really help me and finally help me change my life around as far as why I am always struggling to lose the weight and I now see how I have been failing and why. Its worth the price, no problem. Thank you Gary Taubes.
