I'm a huge Joyce Meyer fan - have maybe 7-8 of her seminar teachings and 3-4 books. This is my first audiobook from her. Great, practical and inspired info that follows the bible very closely. The narrator leaves a lot to be desired - her tone of voice sounds like she is trying to explain a complicated subject to a room full of second graders. Still, the content in this book makes it worth putting up with the poor narration.
Listened to the whole thing in less than 24 hours. I followed a version of a carb-restricted diet a year ago along with diet & exercise and had a 35# weight loss, much improved energy, and other health benefits... and then dropped both the carb restriction and the exercise. I am not a medical professional. But Taubes offers compelling evidence. The end of the book, with its 'if carb restriction doesn't work, be patient; you are undoing years of fat cell programming' message is a little lame. but it's not like eating carbs is a real option (for me, anyway). some really paradigm-shifting stuff here, esp about saturated fat and heart disease. recommended, but I got it with a free credit, and not sure I would have paid full price for it. I think the narrator said "casual" instead of "causal" several times, which is ridiculous.
