    "Great information"

    A lot of great information regarding fats however lost interest with the total program due to all the supplementation that is used. Seems that if you need that much supplementation you should adjust your food intake to account for most of it. Even the author states that food shouldnt be thought of as an ingredient but more as instructions that your body uses. Supplementation separates those into ingredients.

    "Way too many studies"
    Would you listen to Eat Fat, Get Thin again? Why?

    This book could be way shorter. 2/3 of the book is a compilation of studies backing up the author's point. I get it, you need to make sure the reader knows its not bull poopy, however its too much! Skip the first 9 chapters if you want to get to the point. Also, he is super repetitive. However, overall the book is very informative and helpful.

    "Another great book from Dr. Human."

    Great advice. I have been eating this way even before reading the book and feel so much better. Never hangry when eating good carbs (veg) and high fat. Hopefully the message will reach the masses with this book. Love when the author reads the audiobook. Thank you Dr. Hyman

    "WHO KNEW?!"

    Really good information from Dr. Hyman, as usual.
    I've gone from 212-190 lbs. in about 6 months, it's a slow process but it's what my body wants to do. I'm going on the right direction.
    I've cut out sugary carbs, no more doughnuts or cookies!
    I have eggs instead of oatmeal for breakfast, I eat real butter instead of margarine, my drinks of choice are
    water or coffee, no more sweet tea. ☺
    I feel like my body is thanking me, I was in arthritic pain 24/7,
    my body could no longer carry my weight. I thought I was doing the right things but I was slowing gaining instead of losing and I didn't know what to do about it.
    slowly but surely I'm going on the right direction without thinking much about it. simple changes that I'll continue the rest of my life.

    It says Bill but these reviews are by his wife, me, Debbie. I am into healthy eating and 'truly' loving one another.

    "Agree...to a point"

    I eat this way and have definitely had success, however, I think this author doesn't go as far as he needs to with this. He stops short, telling people if they can tolerate them it is okay to use some healthy grains(there is no such thing) and to eat a high starch vegetable everyday...I disagree with both for myself...both would mean failure to me. Granted, he does say if you can tolerate them but I happen to believe both are bad...especially grains, they are highly inflammatory and inflammation is the root of disease. I like and truly believe his recurring statement about the best doctor in the house being you...we are individuals and need to learn how to listen to our own bodies.

    "Great content - NOT user friendly in the audio"
    What did you love best about Eat Fat, Get Thin?

    The content is excellent and science based - I loved it.

    However, i purchased this book as an audio book and am not able to download the PDF's that are continually referred to in the book. I contacted them for help using the contact us link on the website and they have been absolutely no help at all.

    Here is their reply: "when you bought the book from audible, the PDF downloads to a different part of your computer than the audio. I think it sits in the “downloads" folder on a mac or "my documents" on a pc. Please look.

    NOTE THAT I PURCHASED THIS BOOK USING MY PHONE SO THERE IS NO "DIFFERENT PART"

    Bottom line, I recommend the book, but not the audio version, it's frustrating.


    What other book might you compare Eat Fat, Get Thin to and why?

    It starts with Food - essentially all whole food eating and eliminating sugars.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no - the science content becomes dizzying.


    Any additional comments?

    Do not purchase the audio version of this book - unable to download PDF's which are essential to actually following the program and completing questionnaires.

    Story
    "Engaging audio book"
    What made the experience of listening to Eat Fat, Get Thin the most enjoyable?

    In sampling audio books, I've noticed that the reader makes a world of difference. Some authors are complete snoozers, while other professional readers are too dramatic. Dr. Hyman does a fantastic job reading this book. HIs delivery gives you the impression that he's not reading, but rather talking to you directly. He's very conversational in his presentation, which makes it easy to listen to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book is truly a treasure trove of vital (pardon the pun) information. My nutritionist already ascribes to much of Dr. Hyman's philosophy of health; however, I'd never gotten an "outline" of how much to eat of the good stuff. I have actually gained weight on low-carb, high-diets because I've gone "nuts on nuts." Dr. Hyman explained that while there's no calorie-counting or prescriptive formula, there were some parameters (e.g., no more than 2 to 3 servings of nuts a day, I believe he said -- and a serving is not the cup of walnuts I'd been eating). He also said to aim for 70% of calories from fat and to make vegetables 2/3 of your plate by volume (I believe those were the counts...). Those are not stiff rules, but general guidelines that, for me, made a huge difference and allowed me to see that although I've been eating a Paleo/Primal diet for years, the reason I've GAINED WEIGHT by doing so -- if you can even imagine -- is that I've been eating like an Olympian. Not a good idea when you have a sedentary job.


    Have you listened to any of Mark Hyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. No idea.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not what I'd call a moving book, as it's non-ficition, but it's darned good info. I'm on my second listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Dr. Hyman's my new fave. I bounce between Gary Taubes, Dr. Perlmutter, Dr. Mercola, Jon Gabriel, the Weston Price Foundation, and occasionally William Davis of Wheat Belly fame. Dr. Hyman's my current go-to.
