I've purchased other audible books that came with PDF files for the charts, tables, menus and recipes in the book. These would be very helpful. Everyone buying it should know upfront that they will not get these things.
I have the paperback, But don't have the time to really sit and read it through. I recently went on a trip w hubby up north to visit family and we were able to listen to it. I enjoyed it and my hubby learned something's that he otherwise wouldn't have.
I've been attempting to eat this way. I also got to the two books Eat for Health, and I'm using those to learn to cook! I would highly recommend getting both the book for the recipes and the audio so you can listen to it and really let it ingrain in you brain.
Everything in these books are honest, and will work if given a chance.
Easy to read and follow
Easier to actually follow
Within Days you are not HUNGRY
You are nourished and Satisfied
Everything - such a teacher
I thought the book was okay, but it was really hard to listen to the narrator.
It is finally nice to know the truth about nutrition after hearing so many lies and half truths. After listening I finally know what it means to eat healthy. He do quote tons of studies while some might find that boring, I find it refreshing. What good is the information without some proof that is accurate.
I like the way he contrast the diet it we eat and the effects with those other cultures have eaten and the results in sickness and longevity.
I would recommend everyone listen and take to heart this information, it could save your life, if not make it better.
This book makes all fad diets seem silly and educates the listener about some hard scientific truths about what we eat. I grew up eating meat pretty much for every meal. This book will make you challenge widely held beliefs about how to eat healthy.
The China Study
He runs a practice and all of this information is based on clinica
And research medicine.
I really enjoyed all the facts and the insight to a lot of troubles that people have trying to lose weight, I could really relate to it.
No, I listened to this over a period of time, a few days.
This book is filled with a extreme amount of information that I feel many more people should find out about. I believe wholeheartedly that Dr. Furhman knows his stuff and I love how this book really confirms many of my own beliefs.
The idea and science behind this book are great. But the question is how can one really follow it? To follow the principles of this book one would have to become a vegan (not even a vegetarian).
This book has transformed the way I live, eat, and feel. I can't thank Dr. Fuhrman enough for that. I was not overweight and didn't have any major health problems when I started reading the book and following the author's suggestions. I had 15 pounds to lose to get down to the lower end of my ideal range. I had long suffered from the side effects of blood sugar swings--sluggishness, mood changes, and headaches.I started out as a cheese-loving, meating-eating, junk food addict, so I spent a month doing the Eat to Live program at about 50%. I felt so good when I was sticking to the diet that I decided I could definitely do it all the way. My headaches went away, I stopped feeling sluggish after meals, and I didn't experience those horrible blood sugar crash mood swings. After 3 weeks of mostly following the program (with occasional cheats like a beer on Friday night, etc), I've lost 5 pounds. Much more important though is that I feel better than ever. I have a steady stream of energy all day and I never get that horrible overly full feeling that comes from overeating addictive types of foods. Most of my junk food cravings have vanished. It was definitely hard at first, but the longer I eat this way, the more I find myself craving healthy foods. I've even started feeling repulsed by the idea of eating meat, which is a very unexpected side effect.I usually have a very large green smoothie for breakfast, some kind of bean soup for lunch, and then dinners vary. Fruit for snacks, occasional handful of raw nuts, etc. I put the flax seeds in my morning smoothie to be ground up and to make sure I remember to eat them every day.I will continue with this mostly vegan diet for the rest of my life, based on how good I have felt since making the switch. I've even stopped craving cheese, which is something I never would have believed before starting the program.
The hardest part has probably been learning a whole new repertoire of dinners to make, but it's been fun too. I bought the cookbook Veganomicon, and all the recipes I've tried in it have been delicious. For people unsure about their ability to switch to eating this way, I say give it a try for two meals a day for a while and see how it goes. Or try it all the way but keep it simple--having a huge salad for dinner requires little creativity or effort and will fill you up until bedtime.
