This book bears repeated listening...it's wonderful to find a concise, informed, rational explanation of the stupidity of the low-fat diet and how many people are being hurt by
Great book! Bought this book on whim, and m so glad that I did! This book has changed the way I look at both food, and the industrial food machine. Some may find the science book style a little difficult, but I enjoy it, and it is well worth it. That said, I did have to go back and re-listen to a chapter or two to make sure I understood what was being said.
The narrator is perfect - his delivery is not dry or boring, and he keeps you engaged with the reading.
All in all, definite 5 star book
Technically written, allot of useful information and a real eye opener. People really need to read and educate themselves on diet. This book does it all!
Great details of history in this field
tips of what to do and not do when it comes to food and carbs
very easy to listen to, clear
carbs make us fat
mentioned another book within this book several times as a reference but wasn't offered when I purchased this book.
From 1 to 10, I give it an 8! Good but not great! Took too long to get to the point.
The fact that putting carbs in your body, of any amount, is what makes you FAT.
This book is factual, not scenic.
Maybe the second half!
If you don't mind to 100's of examples in the first 10 chapters of why exercise isn't the answer to weight loss then you will probably like this book.
The ONLY redeeming thing about this book was chapter 11 and 12 talking about sugars effect on the body.
This book could have been maybe 4 chapters top to get his point across.
Interesting weightloss hope
It's not your fault your fat it's not having the right information
Sceptic but doesn't hurt to try
Very interesting book. Well written, researched and presented. Why we get fat is well documented. "What to do about it" is a little misleading. Most everyone knows that sugars and carbs make you fat.
It is not until the very end of the book that you learn that your genetics trump almost everything, and if you have got the fat gene, the only way to keep weight off is to fast. I was annoyed that I put so many hours into listening attentively, hoping for an easy solution, and discovered that there was really little I could do about it.
Yes I would, I prefer audiobooks.
Well I wasn't planning on listening to this book all in one sitting but that is what happened, then I listened all over again !
I also started the diet modifications right away and so far I have lost 50 pounds in 9 months.I am much healthier and very thankful to Gary Tubes I have not found it hard at all to make this way of eating as a lifetime commitment.
