I followed roughly 80% of what he taught in his book and still lost some weight. And the idea of avoiding processed foods resonates with me. Just avoiding those foods is a fairly easy way to lose weight and not feel hungry all the time. I'm not convinced that 100% vegan is the way to go though. I'd also recommend any of Michael Pollan's books on the subject of food and diet.
excellent information will definitely listen to again! pdf very helpful
so much valuable information presented in an easy to understand way
I was hoping to get some great advice in this book and was not disappointed. It confirmed everything I had believed about nutrition. I'm very impressed.
Yoga Teacher RYT 500 Personal Trainer Avid reader and audio book listener!
It was simple to understand and when followed the results are incredible.
It really isn't a diet book but a way of eating to follow the rest of your life.
It is anti cancer, longevity producing and perfect for the person that likes to eat a lot, like me.
Doctor Fuhrman's approach to health makes so much sense for everyone, no matter if they are trying to lose weight or just trying to be healthy. I found it delicious and filling!
The audio book was very pleasant to listen to.
The comprehensive, documented scientific backing of the SOUND nutritional information
When I realized that broccoli had MORE protein per calorie than STEAK!!! What?! :)
No, I haven't.
Like many others who wrote reviews, I agree that to make this a complete tool, the audio reader needs to have a link to a PDF or website that will help guide them into the recipes and the FUNCTIONAL/MECHANICAL part of this book and the concepts it presents.
However, as a "good thing", his book and the cook book are both available in the library. I chose to check them out so that I can read along and re-read more intensely the detail laden segments that I really wanted to understand (I'm a "why" person). The recipes are handy to have, but it was rather inconvenient to go to the library for the recipes, when I had the convenience of audible.com for the content.
Yes because I prefer audio format to written ones. I seem to be able to retain it more and enjoy it more.
idk, Any diet book I guess.
I'm didn't laugh or cry.
Narration was better, I believe because the author was the narrator. He spoke passionately at the parts that he was passionate about. There's no substitute for that.
I like to read VERY much .. I'm obsessed with reading I don't have time to actually read a book so I've been a listener for three years now
Maybe in the future just to get some facts revised
The guidelines of the diet
some people live to eat .. and others eat to live
this book was great and contains a good hope that you can eliminate fatal diseases like cancer and diabetes with nutrition .. and I like this idea very much
No I also have the print version because of all the guides to cooking foods
It is science based and easy to understand
Short and to the point
If your tired of the fad diets and want your health back then this is the book for you
It was a very interesting book to listen to although if you want the recipes don't not get the audio part. U was so aggrevated that these were not included because it is a main part of this whole life change.
I love the fact that it was easy to understand and not full of big scientific lingo that the average person would not understand. Dr. F gives you the facts about the negative effects of fat, salt, sugar, dairy, meat and processed foods can have on our bodies. And shows us how a plant rich diet can result in improvements in weight and health.
I will say that, if you are going to use his system, you should buy the hard copy of the book.
Dr. Fuhram is a doctor, not a narrator. I did not expect King Lear...I enjoyed Dr. F's reading of his book.
I think when it hit me that drastic change calls for drastic measures and that if I wanted this, I would have to let things go (i.e. meat, dairy, bread, cookies...). And really, my health is more important that that! I am on week 2 of the 6 week program and I am down 15 pounds!
