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!
There is a TON of information in this book, Dr. Fuhrman knows nutrition.
Love him as a doctor, but pretty dry as a narrator..........
This is one book I have done better understanding in print. Don't get me wrong, this man is AWESOME in his research and passion for helping people really understand how nutrition affects us.
Lots of science and information, but still really hard to listen too. I should note, that I had to really make myself sit down, and absorb the book, but it was worth it! If Dr. Fuhrman was lecturing within 200 miles of me, I would be there!
Reasonable, balanced and nutritious
It can't be compared to other books of it's kind and I believe it will become a classic.
Dr. Fuhrman makes a lot of sense. This nutrition aproach can be the cornerstone of a healthy diet.
Interested in geneaology, history and writing
Yes but in small doses which is not my preference.
Never before and never again.
Though he had an interesting and well thought out message, the delivery was not to my liking. His attitude seemed pompous when he used phraseology similar to "are you with me" - "do you understand" multiple times. Though obvisously he has an understanding of the subject matter, I was irritated at his delivery.
No - would not watch especially if he was the moderator.
Too bad ... for me, the message was lost due to my frustration with the speaker.
It was very informative but needs print reference materials to go along with it.
I am now following the eat to live diet and in 2 weeks have lost 9 pounds and feel amazing.
If I had bought the actual audiobook at a bookstore it would have come with supplemental materials - the charts and graphs referred to by Dr. Fuhrman and the recipes so being an audible customer I am dissatisfied with the fact that i can't at least purchase the kindle version at a discounted price even if whispersync isn't available. How can you read/listen to a diet book and not want to see the corresponding meal plans or recipes that go with it?!? So while i enjoyed this listen and got alot of good information out of it, I feel it is important for buyers to know, you will need to purchase the book to really get the recipes, etc.
I have the book and I was listening and reading this book at the sometime and the unabridged version is missing a chapter. Overall this book is really good. It's very informative. I would recommend this book to anyone who is trying to live healthier.
I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
I was bored with this in the first 30 minutes and could never get motivated to get through the second hour. This may work for some but I am not one of them.
I have been married to the same wonderful wife for over 27 years and have two adult children, out of the house, that are married, working, and doing well.
I love his formula for healthy eating, which is healthy eating equals nutrients divided by calories.
I really would have liked the essential visuals. As such, I am going out and buying the book right now! (Just finished listening an hour ago.)
There was obviously very inadequate editing. Many, many, many times he started, then corrected his words. He is a very East Coast accent, mispronounces MANY words. (the most irritating for me was the hundred times he sat "Sigh-a-Tee" instead of "Sat-I-a-Tee" The word is "Satiety" not "saiety").
He makes a good foundational case for the extreme diet modification discussed.
I have to wonder, as he does about other commercialized weight-loss programs, "If his diet DOES reverse angiographically documented coronary artery disease, like he repeatedly says, WHY hasn't HE done a Prospective, Controlled, Angiographically Documented research study?" Hey, he could call it the "P-CAD Study"! Show me the data! And I'm not talking Star Trek!
I am a physician. Like him, I see hundreds of diabetic-obese patients. I will be incorporating his general principles into my practice -- already have!
