I've been following the diet plan in this book for the past 2 and a half weeks. I've already lost 11 pounds and I feel great. I have a lot more energy, motivation, and my clothes fit better. This is the definitive diet book!
The core information presented by Dr. Fuhrman is excellent. Sadly, it is "padded" with pages upon pages of "filler" information that can cause the listener to doze off. This is the first audiobook ever I had had to fast forward through to get to the valuable data I seek.
The Atkin's Diet - NOT because of it's core, but because we again hear refined grains and sugars are evil (true). I have used a self-modified Adkin's diet to great effect and Furhrman seems to agree with my findings that most of Adkin's can be dangerous. However, avoiding processed carbs is the core of both plans.
Dr. Furhman may know his stuff, but his reading skills can be a bit jarring. He often will studder when reading his own words (not because of a disability) he will loose his place or seem to pause at times as if unfamilar with the book he wrote. I believe he wrote it, but someone else should have read it.
I recently have had a hard time loosing weight. I was heavy as a child and have kept weight off for over 20 years with a few periods where I would pack on 10-15 pounds and nothing seemed to take it off and/or my body was simply adding weight with the same diet that it had maintained a healthy weight at for some reason (stress?) This book is my plan to get back on track. Sadly, when you put on weight you get depressed so you get stressed so you stress eat and a "circle" is created. It must be broken.
I think Dr. Furhman could have gotten the key information needed by most listeners into a 1-hour recording and done much better at communicating the key data. I don't cook so I don't need the recipes other talk about. I do need reminders of what to avoid and what to eat much more of.
This was such an informative book, I could not stop listening.
Dr. Fuhrman explained things in such a simple logical way.
Emotion, Motivation, and Grace!
Yes is was, I could not stop listening!
It is so inspiring to know that there is REAL hope despite what all the fad diets say. This book really is not about a diet as much as it is about education. Dr. Fuhrman teaches you how to eat and live a health life.
Honest, Difficult, Works!
This book is about tough love, if you really want to lose weight and improve your health, then follow the book and you will drop a huge amount of weight. I didn't need to lose a big amount of wight but its works well for me also. If you're so big that you can't exercise, then this is the eating program for you.
The book is a progression of information you need to understand in order to understand the process and to make the commitment. But towards the end it spells out the various plans need to lose weight.
No No ...... I can't eat another thing......
If you like salads and steamed vegetables, you can't eat too much. Personally I like the fruit servings (4 per day), the small portions of nuts and the various recipes which reinvent food choices.
Dr. Fuhrman is right on target. His advice is based on sound medical science. It does not pander to the government or big agri business. I lost 7 lbs in 2 weeks and am eating everything in sight.
Life Changing! Joel Fuhrman did a great job of providing information as well as motivating the reader to make difficult dietary changes in order to improve health and lose weight. Best weight loss plan ever! Lose lots of weight quickly, never go hungry, and feel amazing. Thanks!
I actually will purchase a hard copy of this book for quick reference in addition to the audio. He did a great job of motivating and kept a fairly dry subject interesting.
The authentic way the author read the material as I listened.
Yes. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in becoming healthy.
The parts where he stated how much our eating affects our health negatively or positively....the choice is ours.
Constantly throughout the book he refers to the recipes or to the eating plans, which are NOT included. There should be a pdf that has those attachments, otherwise you can't try any of these principles. This was a complete waste of my money. I wish there was a way to get a refund.
I just got very tired of his use of extremes. After two hours of listening to this book, I felt like he was starting to beat a dead horseradish. I tried getting through this book but after 4 ½ hours I couldn’t take any more.
For some people, this might be a great diet but it isn’t my cup of tea. The publisher’s summary says “When Mehmet Oz has a patient whose life depends on losing weight”. Maybe this book didn’t work for me because my life doesn't depend on losing weight. When I last saw my doctor he said all of my tests results were great. I normally eat at least 5 servings of fruits/vegetables per day and walk over an hour every day. My sibling and I have lost about 300 lbs together just by increasing our water intake, decreasing portion sizes and increasing activity levels. My family also tends to live into their upper 80s and none of them were ever vegetarians.
I think it is great that this diet has helped some people improve their health and decrease their weight but I don’t think it is for everyone.
this book has real information about food and lots of things that food company prefer not to be announce.
i enjoyed to listening this audio,but i was a little over-welmed which if i decide to eat his method,i will not have fun on eating anymore.
thx and it is worth to listen at least one time.....
