This is a solid title with concepts rooted in science. Written in an engaging way and narrated competently. worth a listen for those concerned with health. The production value in this title is at the level I have come to expect in audible's offerings.
Stripping diet down to caloric intake without counting every calorie is refreshing. This is rarely seen but it is not entirely new. It’s no gimmick sales pitch is so far from the diet book norm that the concepts are hard to shake off.
The narrator is regular stock. Good performance but ultimately unmemorable. It is tough to be a stand out when delivering a non-fiction title that is purposely level headed.
there is nothing earth shattering in this title. no magic pills and life altering demands past a suggestion to get up and move a few minutes a day. I had no extreme reactions to the material delivered in this title but it did spark a lot of debate between supporters of ultra-focused fad dieters and the diet through balance crowd in our family. .
Read this book as a reminder to stay mindful or as a base building resource if you are a relative new comer to the world of moderation. Fad diets work fast, the catch is, they fall apart fast too. this book provides a sustainable outlook on food and fitness and if followed with mild effort, improvements in health and fitness will happen. By critically considering the concepts presented here, a person can develop the knowledge required to pick up healthy food and exercise habits while deflecting a continuous barrage of marketing hype and nutritional traps. Marketing related to weight is something almost all of us pay for. Whether it be buying a new piece of fitness gear on the TV, paying a bit more for the low fat version of an item, trading out fries for the side salad with a $1.50 charge, or tossing a bottle of questionable supplements with great graphics in the ad into the grocery cart. Spending your money on a book like this is an investment that is worth making. I would rather spend my money to get educated instead of paying for a shot in the dark fitness solution/fat-loss platform.
