    Story

    This is an excellent course about nutrition. I already knew the basics of this topic, but I learned a lot that will help me improve my immunity and prevent disease - I even learned that I was eating something that was making me sick (sugar alcohols).

    This course goes beyond the usual nutrition advice that you get in health books - "Just eat plant-based foods and exercise" - to give you in-depth knowledge of every aspect of nutrition science. It explores the basics of diet and excercise, but it also addresses vitamins and minerals, supplements, fads, real-world problems (like getting hungry at night), specific diseases (diabetes and celiac), the psychology of nutrition, genetics research, what is happening in your body with cells, molecules, and bacteria in different situations (such as dealing with high cholesterol levels), and how to incorporate small changes in your life to make a big difference.

    There was some really interesting material about the history of nutrition legislation, but refreshingly, politics were left out of it. Not everything in the book is without bias, but at least, when a bias is presented, it is accomanied with researched evidence and analysis supporting it. For the most part, the course was put together with a minimal amount of judgementalism and fussiness.

    I especially liked the frequently asked questions portion in the last chapter. I would recommend listening to that first, but the entire course is valuable, and that's rare for me to say about such a long course.

    The narrator, Dr. Roberta Anding, does a good job, but her voice can become flat and repetitive in its intonation and rhythm. She doesn't really excite you about the topic, but she does a decent job of presenting the material. Essentially, she sounds like any ordinary doctor giving a lecture - scientific and methodical, but somewhat flat.

    This was well worth a credit, and it's something that I will refer to when I need a refresher about nutrition. I can say that it actually improved my health. If I had to, I would purchase it all over again.

    Story

    I had just finished Robert Sapolsky's "Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers" when I started this. Honestly, after the zebra book, I would have skipped this one had I not already purchased it. However, this one turned out to be quite a bit better. There is a lot more attention given to the brain and brain processes in response to stress, and there is more meat and less fluff in this one. I will, however, reiterate what I said about the zebra book. DON'T READ THIS IF YOU'RE STRESSED!. Once again, the author, himself, cautions, after he's read most of the book, that if you aren't stressed by that point, you haven't been listening. And once again, there isn't that much about stress relief.

    The author was a decent narrator, but not stellar. I listened to it at 2x or 3x. The material was interesting and logical in its presentation, but I thought it went on about certain points for too long.

    Overall, this is a good primer about what happens when you get stressed, and there some material here for dealing with it. I could recommend this for someone with a scientific interest in stress or psychology, but there are better books about stress relief and coping methods.

    Story

    This is a great resource for anyone with diabetes. Suzy Cohen discusses the disease, itself, diet, nutrition, exercise, supplements, medications, interactions, and recipes. She is a pharmacist, so she brings a unique perspective to the topic that is rarely offered in other books as most are written by doctors. The pharmaceutical background adds a lot to the discussion of various medications and supplements.

    Jo Anna Perrin narrated the book well. There is a long PDF document that comes with the purchase of the audiobook, and it contains a vast amount of information. This is one of those books that would normally require either extensive note taking or the hard copy of the book to really get a good grasp on a lot of the topics, but the PDF makes it possible to listen to the narration and print the material you would need to review. That said, I have the hard copy, myself, and for the sheer amount of material covered in this work, I'm glad that I do.

    I was impressed that the author covered the use of teas, which is a topic often ignored in discussions about supplements. I was also impressed that she continued to exhort her audience to make their physicians aware of the supplements that they take as they have pharmacological effects and can interfere with their prescription or over-the-counter medications. She was very open-minded about prescription medications and vitamins and supplements, but she was not without criticisms. I found the book to be particularly well-rounded in its approach various treatments for diabetes.

    I will be using this book again, for reference purposes, and I will probably listen to the audiobook every so often as a refresher. It was well worth the credit for the life-saving, well-researched, and well-presented information.

    I am impressed that Dr Perlmutter is a medical doctor who appreciates and is erudite in matters of nutrition. He is a member of several nutrition associations. His book is very pithy and offers actionable protocols. The main thrust is about blood sugar levels as a result of eating gluten, sugars and carbs. I am interested in health and nutrition, tolerate gluten fine and am able to eat whatever I want and stay thin. However, after reading this book and out of respect for Dr Perlmutter's body of work and experiences that he relates, I have decided to have as little gluten in my diet as possible. I don't eat much sugar or carbs to begin with however, I am not buying gluten free bread, crackers etc. It has been an easy transition. I've also cut back on fruit and fruit juice dramatically, preferring vegetables. I try to have about 1 serving of fruit each day. I am also adjusting my supplements according to his recommendations. I am going to add turmeric and resveratrol. Dr Perlmutter explains why statins are not good for you, the link between gluten and some brain diseases and why patients on a low-fat diet are at especially high risk. I found this to be a very interesting and compelling read.

    "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. Humans used to know how to eat well, Pollan argues. But the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused, complicated, and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists-all of whom have much to gain from our dietary confusion.

    Every year, the average American eats 33 pounds of cheese (triple what we ate in 1970) and 70 pounds of sugar (about 22 teaspoons a day). We ingest 8,500 milligrams of salt a day, double the recommended amount, and almost none of that comes from the shakers on our table. It comes from processed food. It’s no wonder, then, that one in three adults, and one in five kids, is clinically obese.

After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

    What do you crave? For many of us, sugary treats, fatty meals, and high-calorie snacks are impossible to resist. And yet, reaching the bottom of the biscuit tin rarely leaves us feeling satisfied. What if we are actually hungry for something much more fulfilling? In this groundbreaking new book, best-selling author and endocrinologist Deepak Chopra unites the latest scientific and alternative therapy research to reveal how our overeating is often a symptom of "inner starvation" - a hunger for love, self-esteem, happiness, and security.

    "What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's dilemma. Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.

    "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. Humans used to know how to eat well, Pollan argues. But the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused, complicated, and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists-all of whom have much to gain from our dietary confusion.

    Every year, the average American eats 33 pounds of cheese (triple what we ate in 1970) and 70 pounds of sugar (about 22 teaspoons a day). We ingest 8,500 milligrams of salt a day, double the recommended amount, and almost none of that comes from the shakers on our table. It comes from processed food. It’s no wonder, then, that one in three adults, and one in five kids, is clinically obese.

    The China Study offers conclusive evidence that a change of diet can dramatically reduce the risks of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The book is based on the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted, a 20-year joint project between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine. The study surveyed the eating habits of 6,500 adults from all over China and Taiwan and found a direct correlation between diet and disease.

And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.
