The book was very good. But he audible version does give you the reipres to follow for hte diet. It refers to the diet and the reicpres smoothies to eat but no recipes. I was disappointed that should come on a download for use.
How simple the diet can be.
He made a few pronuciation mistakes and mis read a few words.
The diet isn't that hard to do but it is hard if you miss your meat.
I don't know if this will continue but I have totally changed how I eat after reading this book. I have taken many classes on nutrition so I am not sure what made this book stick for me. My entire family has cleaned up their act in how we eat. Highly recommended inspirational book that is backed up with lots of DATA.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Applying its concepts allowed me to reduce my blood cholesterol levels to the point where my doctor agreed that taking cholesterol medication made no sense. Secondarily, I lost 15 pounds which I've kept off for a couple years, and view this as a permanent shift to lower weight.
The premise of the book is that many of the health problems we experience in the United States are due to the Western diet "(big surprise there!), but the author continues by spelling out an alternative. His alternative, a diet based on large quantities of fruits and vegetables, particularly leafy greens, is supported by numerous authoritative studies, such as the China study conducted by Cornell University.
If Americans would just take seriously the responsibility for their diet, and the degree of change necessary to shift to a truly healthy diet, we would begin making progress against many of health problems plaguing our nation.
If you, or love one, are suffering from type II diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or high cholesterol, please listen to this book.
It is read by the author whose passion for this subject makes it a thoroughly entertaining listen.
Everyone should read this book to learn about nutrition.
No, that's too much information to take in at once.
Amazing book with extremely valuable information.
I am closing in on 1500 books "read". Most of them I've actually listened to will exercising which I have done almost everyday for about 4 decades. Since I have read so many, I can be very critical of even average books. I can honestly say this is one of the best I've read because it has improved my life.
I've read dozens of diet books and hundreds of books on various other health matters. I research and blog on diet and health, so I read through new studies every week but NOTHING compares to what is in this book. More and more of the information in this book is being proven spot on as new studies unrelated to it are published.
Its a non-fiction book, so there are no scenes. Your programmers can remove this question from non-fiction books.
"Medical profession spends billions to buy rights to a book, just to destroy it". If everyone read this book, the demand for medical care would crash.
I thought I was on the cutting edge of health and diet because I read everything, but this book put it all together for me. I've lost the last few stubborn pounds that I've had for a while and thought I would have until I died. My constant sinusitis cleared up by eliminating certain foods, I heard this could work before but never trusted the sources until Dr Fuhrman explained in a way that made me give it a shot. I've thrown out the steroids and will not have the expensive invasive surgery all my "specialist" insisted was the only way. Read this book, learn the truth and live a longer healthier life.
If you are interested in good health this book has a lot of great advice! Dr, Fuhrman explains how to eat to reap the maximum nutritional rewards from your diet. He narrates this book and is a great motivator.
Very specific with details of studies that have been made
Written by a Dr. who knows and sees many patients. Shares stories of many patients
All of it.
Very easy to listen to. Enjoyed listening. Listening made it much easier for me to understand. I tried reading it and it seemed slow with too many numbers and stats. Listening to it was much easier and much easier for me to understand and be convinced of the importance of Dr Fuhrman's eating plan.
Even though this version of the book is unabridged some important research papers were not included.
I read Eat to Run just before reading eat to live, both book have compelling arguments to to adopt a vegan diet.
You could hear his genuine excitement about the book when reading.
The personal stories about the patients whose lives were saved and change where moving.
I have personally adopted a vegan diet after reading this book and it's amazing. Everything Joel Fuhrman said in this book is true the pounds are just melting away and I am eating better than I have every eaten in my life.
This book is great to put your health, diet and lifestyle in perspective. Dr. Joel Fuhrman educates you on what you can do what is best for you. Highly recommended for people who are serious about preventing and in some cases reversing disease.
Definitely - kept on repeating and bought the written word.
Addicted to Audible since 2009
No nothing I would change, it was very educational and informative.
I would have included more tips on the right foods to eat
I liked that the narrator was well spoken and easy to understand. I didn't like the way the narrated skipped and repeated himself. Seems like they could have done those lines over in the editing room.
yes I probably would. visuals may help readers take it all in.
This was a very good book. I hope my will power is strong enough to stick with some of the tips and advice presented in this book.
