Native Californian, but lived in TX for 2.5 yrs where I joined a neighborhood book club and never looked back! I listen and read books! After 5 years of raving about audiobooks, I finally got my husband hooked!
Very well done Course. The author dispensed good sound advice without gimicks and judgement. It was a long course but touched on so many topics in 30 minute increments. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to understand the basics and be able to discern the truth from fad fiction.
Good science here, and it's well-presented. Clearly, Prof. Anding is knowledgeable and passionate about nutrition. I think some of this information, however, is out-dated at this point.
Boring to death. Do NOT even think of buying this book or listen to any book read by her ( no idea of her name). She's not engaging whatsoever, it makes you feel like she reading to finish and not to get you into the topic. While listening to the first two chapters, I kept telling myself " it will be over soon", I meant the irritating and annoying materials/ way of reading. I don't wanna be judgemental, but going over some of the later chapters didn't change my mind. Now, when I think of the wasted hour on the two chapters, which by the way I'm not getting back, I consider killing myself.
I enjoyed it! But the author only did non-metrics, and overall was too normative about the wives being the cooks.
on the positive side, it was informative and full of scientific findings.
She promotes many of the Fake foods that are making millions ill.
Get her facts correct instead of promoting many of the junk food industries harmful fake foods.
She needs to go back to school.
All human beings need to eat whole foods meaning just the way they come from nature not processed and not full of chemicals. We should count chemicals not calories. For her to say that its okay to consume sugar free products is irresponsible at best, sugar is bad in so many ways in fact cancer thrives off of it. Sugar substitutes are much more harmful then sugar. I don't consume sugar with the exception of fruit which I don't overeat. I and others feel and look so much better by eating more healthy fats like organic coconut, avocado, olive oil, nuts, seeds and fish oil and even better eating the low mercury wild caught fish like salmon and anchovies/sardines. I don't eat any grains whatsoever, they are overly processed and full of chemicals including gyphosate a compound in Roundup. I could go on and on, its a shame that this woman is making huge bucks off of this book that's full of bad information. Ketosis is NOT bad in fact once our bodies switch over from sugar burners to fat burners we are at our best in fact many of the pro athletes eat high healthy fats. If everyone stopped eating grains they would NOT be unhealthy fat or suffering from malnutrition. Protein is needed but not more than a 4-6oz a day and that should come from 100% grass fed meats and wild meats.
