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.
Refuting old research and citing new (or even old accepted as new) research.
What we don't know can kill us.
Worth reading, I think.
"LIFE-CHANGING for those of us craving RESULTS!"
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!
I love how well researched this book is and how real world examples are used throughout.
This is the first Patrick Lawlor performance I've listened to and I really enjoyed it.
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!
Start this book and enjoy transforming your body today :)
