    Story
    "It's like listening to a textbook"
    What would have made Eat for Health better?

    The reader has very little personality and it seems to repeat the same information over and over. It's like listening to a textbook.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It has good nutritional information if you can weed it out of all of the scientific terminology. He is smart but does not know how to make his findings interesting.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was not monotone but there was little excitement, reminded me of a professor who didn't really want to be there.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Eat for Health?

    I would take away the whole beginning of the book, we don't need all the scientific background info, I just need to know what foods are nutrient dense!

    Story
    "Great book with simple plan, still hard though..."
    What did you love best about Eat for Health?

    This book is a great listen for someone who isn't quite sure what is healthy to eat and what is not. This book makes a sound case for low calorie, low-fat and low-carb based diet. The author clearly states there will be repetition of some content explaining that the goal is for the reader (listener) to understand and internalize the concepts of a healthy diet. This way your not just trying a fad diet, but rather making a lifestyle change.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The testimonials and the full disclosure on the toughness of adapting to this diet. Not everyone will easily adjust to this diet due to learned eating habits, aversion to vegetables, and some digestive acclamation to the vegetable content.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The reader is the author. This brings a sincerity and confidence to the material. Also, it's much easier to have this book read and in effect explained to you rather than read the text.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a hard diet to fully acclimate to. Don't try this diet if you aren't willing to change your lifestyle. Try Adkins if you just want to lose weight quickly. This book is more about changing your health, and not just your weight.

    Story
    "Hard to listen to"
    What would have made Eat for Health better?

    As an audiobook, this was a difficult listen because the book references diagrams and charts. This would be useful if you also have the book to use to refer the diagrams.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joel Fuhrman again?

    No. There is a distracting audio hiss that occurs when he pronounces the "s" sound.


    What three words best describe the narrator’s voice?

    Pleasant except for the "s" sound.

    "Lots of good information"

    I enjoyed this book, but liked Eat to Live better. This was a good second book to that. Eat to Live gave a lot of research which I found interesting and informative. This book was good to make the program doable and for the recipes (bought the actually book too).

    Story
    "Well founded, fun to listen to."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this is well founded and it can change your life.... that is if you are willing to make drastic changes to your thinking and your American way of eating. For me, this is already the direction I was headed and I have made many changes in my way of eating. This was the natural next step I was looking for. I have recommended it to 3 others who are now making the suggested changes and are experiencing various health benefits/weight loss from it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eat for Health?

    Stories of those who have been cured of serious disease by changing the way they eat.


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

    n/a


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You are what you eat.
