Keeps telling you to go to his website rather that what to do in the book

Yes I would recommend it if you are interested in learning about a more healthy lifestyle, and losing weight.
The problem was that either Dr. Hyman's ego was too big to hire someone who could do the reading other than himself or he could not afford to. His reading came off arrogant. It could have been much better if someone else read it. Also he is trying so hard to coin a new phrase "Diabesity" that he uses the word a zillion times which is so distracting and tiresome. OK we get it. You "invented" this word and want it to stick. But could ya maybe use it a little less so we are not distracted from the main idea of the book?
Dr. Hyman has done his homework and has a very good and important idea which could really help people. However he needs to get over himself, and the obvious numerous sales pitches to go to his site to sign up for other stuff and BUY BUY BUY supplements etc.
Since following this diet lifestyle I no longer have to take metformin.
I now know which blood tests and supplements to take.
Addicts first rule is to know oneself as an addict. This books let us come to grips with SUGAR and all of its addictive natures. Now it is time to understand why this substance can be and should be label with a warning label as strong as nicotine. It hooks you just like nicotine but nobody seems to mind. Why, because they are probably hooked as well. Finding out the facts is your responsibility and dealing resourcefully with the facts is Dr Hyman's mission.
Just a little to repetitions in some areas.
It is easy to get through the audio edition just driving back and forth to work. A great use of time. But it is hard to go back and find points of interest.
No more sugar!
The realization that diet is the crucial role in staying healthy hit me for the first time like a ton of bricks.
No, first time.
This book has the most comprehensive program to combat diabetes. I had been trying to gather information from different studies, I should have gone here first.
More valuable to someone with less knowledge of nutrition or less of a scientific outlook.
Lacked details of the medical evidence substantiating his claims for the links between diet and diseases.
Say something about yourself!
If it was a hard copy book I would have tossed it in the first refuse bin I came accross. Perhaps I am not suited to the "go to my website........blah blah blah" style. Luckily it was just $4.95
This is a must listen! Dr. Hyman addresses the real cause of our growing obesity crisis and how to combat that which leads to heart disease, diabetes, cancer and our general poor health.
His expertise, which is delivered in a caring manner will change your life forever.
This is a book I would have dipped into rather than read straight through if I had bought a hard copy. It had a lot of statistics which I did not need to hear and I may have given up on it if faced with the chore of reading, however as an audio book it was very interesting and reinforced information I had gleaned from other sources. It still takes a dedicated effort to change your life, it is not an easy fix, but definitely worth listening too.
It brought home to me how many of the problems we suffer are the result of the bad habits we develop without giving conscious thought to what we consume and why, and this can be reversed with dedication in the right direction
Mark Hyman is so enthusiastic about the message he conveys that it is hard not to feel caught up in this. A visit to his clinic would be on my to do list if I ever win the lottery.
Save a life - starting with your own
I would have enjoyed this more if it had been less repetitious and less statistical, but it was an interesting read
