The information was presented in a clear manner.
The examples of the participants results were most most helpful.
His word inferences on the subject matter was professional and appropriate for the text.
Davis presentation of complicated information was presented in an understandable format. Weiner's reading made it clear and enjoyable.
I have already recommended this book to some friends, but with the caveat that it may be too restrictive to follow.
Suffering from arthritis in my hands, I was hopeful that following this diet would help relieve the pain. I've been eating vegan for several years and found that I would need to eliminate most of the protein from my diet if I were to follow this diet.
No. I don't know how this plan could be changed or enhanced.
The author tries too hard to invent ways that wheat has an adverse affect on the human body. We do have issues with wheat, but we have issues with all human manufactured carbohydrates. The author alludes to this fact many times, but then singles out wheat. Wheat is bad, but HFCS is equally, if not more responsible for obesity.
This is a really scary book. Let me warn you of that before you read it. It's scary because it's true. It's scary because if we are what we eat...well, you'll have to read the book to find out just how scary that idea can be.
I don't want to dissuade you from listening to a really good book, but if after reading it you have nightmares about wheat, don't say I didn't warn you.
This book addresses the genetic mutation of foods (particularly wheat), the mass marketing of the wrong kinds of foods (particularly wheat), and what these foods (particularly wheat) are doing to our bodies.
The narrator is good. Tom Weiner has an interesting voice with a good cadence, and he keeps you interested.
You'll find a lot of great advice about how to eat healthier and make better food choices. The author isn't all doom and gloom - just be prepared to never look at pastry (or any other wheat-based food) the same way again.
This is not to say that I will never eat pie again. I did not become a vegetarian or vegan or go on a super-restricive diet after I read this, but it really made me think about my food choices, and now, I often choose differently than I otherwise would have, so I guess the wheat nightmares are worth it.
The main concept of this book is very simple. However, the author goes into great technical detail to prove is point. I have lost about 15 pounds in three weeks. I fell good and I sleep great.
Very interesting, haven't bought a loaf of bread since and I loved wheat! (or thought I did)
I already have listened to it twice. Lots of information.
Amazing how much we don't know about how food affects us. Very well written, though tends to get technical and sometimes felt I needed to go back to listen again to understand. Would have been nice to have the recipes to go along with this book. As it feels I now have lots of information but no recipes or plan of how to achieve a gluten free eating plan.
I grew up on Golden Age Radio, I love to learn about a great many things, and I enjoy a wide variety of genres. Me, bored? Never!
I got this on the daily deal. $3 and a few hours later, I've learned that virtually every health problem I'm suffering through is caused by this mutagen they've been calling wheat since the mid-50s, and the damage can be reversed... if you can handle the withdrawals. The claim about the withdrawals are akin to stepping off morphine or heroin, which sounds melodramatic, but we'll see. I don't consider myself overly reactionary, nor am I any kind of health fanatic, but within minutes of finishing the book, I was in the grocery store, reprogramming my lifestyle to go wheatless.
Guess I'll know in the next few months if this really works. Don't you just wish Audible let you go back and edit reviews after you post them? It would come in handy for this title.
This book is packed full of interesting information, but I did find myself rolling my eyes at much of the preachy content. I would recommended this book to everyone, but caution that you take it with a grain of salt.
I believe the premise that Wheat may be very bad for us is sound. But the author then goes on to blame genetic modification of the Wheat for the badness. Isn't is far more likely that the problem is the amount of wheat that we consume because it's so inexpensive and plentiful?
There are a lot of little annoyance like this in the book. The author never really defends why he only advocates a wheat elimination diet, rather than a wheat reduction diet for the masses.
And as long as I`m pointing out annoying bits... I remember near the end, something like ``Is nuclear fission just another chemical reaction"? I don't know about your school, but in my school we leaded that nuclear fission was a nuclear reaction, not a chemical reaction :-)
Audible Obsessed wishes she had more time for so many audiobooks.
I would spend pages and pages to describe this book, but let's try to simplify.
As soon as I started listening to this book, I was so terrified by the things wheat can do to your body, that halfway through the book I decided to divorce from wheat. In 5 days I lost 2 kilos, aprox. 4 pounds, I feel better, and my tummy looks smaller.
I do not have celiac disease, but I decided to give this book's strategy a try, since I have been eating well, but still gaining weight. I completely removed wheat from my diet. My hunger diminished. I also changed the content in my pantry, since many processed foods have gluten disguised in them.
Wheat makes you hungrier, grumpier and makes your thoughts foggier, among so many other things.
Everyone should read this book!
How many of us have been on diets prescribed by doctors and have not gotten the expected result, since you have been following every little detail on that specific diet? Well, this book provides many answers, actually more answers than what you expect.
I have no reason to doubt what dr. William says since I have been trying these teachings and have been feeling so much better. Only 6 days to feel the difference ( this was how long it took me to listen to this book ). Imagine what it can do to your whole life ahead of you.
The information contained in this book should be read over and over. Happy listening / reading!
