Unlike another reviewer, I found Jimmy's narration to be just fine. There are a lot of "bells" signalling a quote from another person, but I didn't mind those at all. The quotes really add a lot of content to the book.
I have embraced low carb for many years, but this book really added a lot of new information for me about the role of fat and protein in a low carb diet. I feel like I have a MUCH greater understanding of the role of carbs in our health. Jimmy adds a whole lot of anecdotal stories along with summaries of published medical studies about people and conditions that have been helped by ketosis. Super inspiring to me.
I highly recommend this book to anyone, but especially to someone struggling with weight, diabetes, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, neurological disorders, alzheimers, cancer or anything!
I walked away from this book with an understanding that low carb and ketosis are truly keys to living a long, healthy life free of the scourge of modern diseases. Thank you Jimmy!
First, I agree with everyone who commented on the "dings" for "moment of clarity moments" they are completely annoying. Hence I give the performance rating a low score. But please don't let this discourage you from reading this book. The two books I'd read on a similar topic were excellent and I wanted to learn more. It turned out that the author of this book quoted the other authors in several places, so I knew I was on the right track to learn more about the benefits of maintaining my low carb lifestyle. But I learned so much more.
Yes, it is written from the author's point of view. So what? It doesn't pretend to be anything else. But the author also explains why an individual's experience with something can be useful in this case. He also sites where scientific research is and hasn't yet been done. And, he is quick to make sure that his readers learn from what he has experienced and decide for themselves.
I enjoyed this book, "dings" and all, and I'd gladly recommend it to friends and family.
Love the info! Have been following for 30 days and feel great. I've listened 3 times now. My only gripe is he doesn't read the lists of foods and recipes. There is a pdf on the website, but I want to listen when driving. It really wouldn't have been hard to read them off and include pdf for those who want it.
A must read!
Cholesterol Clarity - Written by the same author. Great information about the lie we've been fed for the past 60 years.
No, too much information to take in. You need time to take it all in.
My only issue with this book is the audio is too slow. I actually listened to it at 1.5 and it was much more enjoyable. Also, I also love the fact that the author review the chapters key concepts at the end of each chapter.
The information in this book is valuable and I enjoyed the content; however, the narration was insufferable to me. The narrator's tone, inflection and cadence was inconsistent and annoying. He struggled with pronunciation and sometimes made statements sound like questions due to his tone. Also, the 'Clarity' moments and the bell sounds were distracting and didn't flow well.
Overall, I highly recommend the book - just not the audiobook. Do yourself a favor and buy the paper copy of this book
Please re-record without the horrid chiming!
The info was great, but couldn't listen.
It needs to be re recorded.
Awesome information, the bell or ding wasn't that bothersome to me. It's well worth it. If you are interested in learning about the Ketogenic diet you will get all your questions answered here. I listened to the book twice. Loved it
I'm a 3rd generation cowboy with careers as a cattleman, the military and in the oil fields of West Texas.
I listen to it frequently to update my understanding of the Keto WOE. There seems to always be added "clarity" with each listen.
"Packed full of useful information"
This audio book is packed full of useful information. Written by someone who knows what it's like to struggle with a weight problem. If you're wanting to start out on a ketosis diet, this is a must listen. All the information you'll need and all the science to back it up is included.
Hopefully the audio editor didn't get paid as there are a number of glitches and dead air in the audio track that need sorting out. And if the author is reading this, please, lose the bells....
"excellent book "
excellent book, well written & easy to understand. technical enough for the more seasoned nutrition afficionado but flows well and provides a good level of knowledge on the ketogenic lifestyle.
Great clarity, great research, very well read. I enjoyed the factual information very much and will try some of the suggested techniques
It's long but worth it. Well read by Jimmy and totally understandable to a layman like me. Can't wait to see my results
"A very thorough audio book!"
I've tried these principles low carb high fat and they truly work. I have lost about an inch around my waist in a couple weeks.
I'm quite active though not a sedentary person.
Also you feel satisfied and full.
I highly recommend this book and way of eating as it has a lot if scientific research to back its claims.
If you have been struggling to loose weight in the past or suffer from insulin sensitivity/resistance, diabetes underactive thyroid or any other hormonal problems you must give this way of eating a go and have a listen to this book as it Could potentially change your life.
"Five Stars !"
informative and inspiring!
Brilliant, learnt a lot and lost a lot of weight. I have been on it 2 weeks and lost 10 kg ...I don't feel hungry and feeling healthy.
I will keep it going till shredded
"Keto adaption is the way forward."
The book is well narrated by the author, I have no health problems and no weight issues but feel the tremendous benefits of being in ketosis. I generally eat one meal per day and never feel the need to snack! I feel I have endless energy whilst in ketosis. Thank you Jimmy Moore.
"Great and valuable collation"
Jimmy has a somewhat 'funny' presentation. The production is a bit rough around the edges BUT the information is first class. And he has collated all the relevant information and quotes from various experts in a thorough and careful way. It is helpful and well done. I recommend this all rounder to people when they ask how I achieved such great weightloss !
"Covers a lot of ground"
The book extensively covers many concepts and it's backed by lots of good medical professionals and knowledgeable authors.
The narration was annoying. The content was repetitive.
Someone with performance skills
Yes, it was educational... but the layout was all over the place, and repetitive
Keep it simple, it was verging on the ridiculous with the repetitiveness.
