    Story
    "Overall, I found this book to be very interesting"
    What did you love best about Living Low Carb?

    It's hard for me to review nonfiction books, sometimes, because I feel like I should have a stronger background in research in order to back my positive review. I am not a medical person, but I can say that I found the information in this book to be very compelling. Some of the studies I DO know because I looked them up, but a lot of them, I could not. What I have read, though, does seem to support that a low carb diet is a better choice for most health issues. I thought that the author's willingness to review the different low carb diets was helpful, and I appreciated that he seemed to try to steer clear of trumpeting his own work beyond what is acceptable. Worth a read if you are having autoimmune or any other health problems. Energy dense, though, so you might want to read the book or keep it on hand for reference, as well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Living Low Carb?

    Refuting old research and citing new (or even old accepted as new) research.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not applicable


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

    What we don't know can kill us.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth reading, I think.

    Story
    "Informative, amusing, and very well read"

    The first half of the book is an overview of the state of the science regarding Low Carb dieting now and historically. Having read Gary Taubes books, I am used to his cautious, neutral language regarding the subject. Bowden, however, has very strong opinions and is not at all restrained in his discussions. I enjoyed the lively, colorful way Bowden has of expressing himself.

    The second half of the book consists of Bowden's description and review of 14 low carb diet programs. I found them a bit tedious, but I think they would be invaluable to someone seeking a detailed, expert comparison of the nuances of the programs.

    I enjoyed Patrick Lawlor's narration as well, it enhanced the lively way Bowden writes.

    "LIFE-CHANGING for those of us craving RESULTS!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm so grateful I found this book! Jonny Bowden has made something I've struggled with my whole life possible and I'd recommend his book again and again. Every easy to understand explanation of how the foods we choose to eat define our bodies gives me the confidence to eat well day after day with truly remarkable results!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love how well researched this book is and how real world examples are used throughout.


    Have you listened to any of Patrick Lawlor’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    This is the first Patrick Lawlor performance I've listened to and I really enjoyed it.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Finally understanding why my previous attempts to manage my weight weren't working and would never work flooded me with hope and now results. I'm feeling happier now than ever!


    Any additional comments?

    Start this book and enjoy transforming your body today :)
