"Change your whole idea of eating healthly"
This was really interesting, understanding the whys of why we should or should not eat things, how your digestion works, makes slimming or just eating healthier easier. This changed my whole outlook on food, is easy to follow and I feel so much better for following it. It also reduces risk of diabetes and cholesterol levels. Eat as much as you want but just ensure they are the right things. Turns everything I understood before on its head. Eat fat and get slim!!!!!
Not the best, but I got used to it and was interested in the content
No you need to dip in and out, work out how you best use the information before going on to the next. In usual American style, lots of things are repeated but it is not to bad in this as there are some technical things which you need to understand.
"Evidence based nutrition advice? Tick!"
Finally a book about nutrition capable of explaining some fundamental scientific concepts easily. The book is to be commended for the evidence it presents in support of the many concepts put forward. Over the last three months I have followed the advice of this book to adjust my nutrition and have already achieved significant results.
"Really informative and helpful. However..."
Really informative book. I learned a lot of new stuff.
However, there is so much information here and so much of it is quite technical- easily explained here but still quite in-depth that it's hard to comprehend everything.
I found the narrator easy enough to follow, but not so easy to follow I could describe it as bedside listening, you need to be fully awake and aware when listening as it's easy to fall out of the loop and misunderstand entire chapters. I think it does at times sound a bit monotone and narrated rather then enacted or given more force- don't get me wrong, I've heard far far worse and some books are so terribly digitised they are inaudible but there are still ways which this book could have been improved on the reading out-loud side.
I think the price is very expensive- you can pick up the book for far less and actually with all it's technical stuff (for want of a better word) I think it may be easier to read this yourself then to have it read to you- unless your going to sit with a note-book to take down all the relevant information as it's easy to have all these facts and figures ride straight over your head.
A good book though- a great book and well worth a read or listen.
"the best most informative read of your life!"
This thorough account of the influence of carbohydrates on your body is fully backed by science. It is just the right level of biological explanation to fully appreciate why carbs are so bad for you. Well done Gary for bringing this complex subject to the masses. Anyone who takes this information on board can only benefit from a longer more fulfilling life. Thank you and thanks to Paul Thurrott and Leo Lapport for recommending it 12 months ago.
I bought this book as a complete contrast to my usual genre. I listened to it on holiday over a couple of days whilst relaxing by the pool! I loved it and despite the scientific terms I found the information easy to understand and very informative. I listen to it regularly in the car to and from work to keep me on track at meal times. I am pleased with my weight loss progress and defintely feel healthier thanks to this audio book.
If you've ever wondered whether low fat diets are as healthy as they're supposed to be, listen to this book - you won't regret it... although it might make you change what you eat.
If you are interested in losing weight this is the best. you will never think about carbohydrates the same again.
I am definately going to try this out. I remember as a child, the whole debut of the diet "thing" was about carbs then, perhaps revisiting this theory is long overdue. I grew up on eggs, bacon, lard, meat, butter - but also lots of potatoes. Not very much fruit, only in season & limited on price & availability. It will be very interesting to see if this works, nothing else has! Caveperson here I come!
This is amazing and very informative. Makes one totally re-think the old school of nutrition,
and yes, it is not all our faults that we are obese, there's other factors involved.
"Excellent and Effective Advice"
This book sets out the cause of today's obesity outbreak with a detailed but understandable review of the scientific background. The author shows how the current government advice on diet is biassed by past errors and that the true problem is excess carbohydrate, not fat, in today's diet. The medical research that overwhelmingly supports a carbohydrate restriction diet as the solution to obesity is described and the accompanying notes include an example diet. This dietary approach really works, as many, including myself, have found. If you want to know how to lose weight and why you can easily do it with carbohydrate restriction, this is the book for you. Highly recommended.
