Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Dr. Neal Barnard reveals the shocking truth about cheese - the dangerous addiction that is harming your health - and presents a radical program to lose weight and feel great.

We've been told that dairy does a body good, but the truth is that cheese can be dangerous. Loaded with calories, fat, and cholesterol, cheese can make you gain weight and leads to a host of health problems like high blood pressure and arthritis. Worse, it contains mild opiates that make it addictive, triggering the same brain receptors as heroin and morphine. In The Cheese Trap, Dr. Neal Barnard presents a comprehensive program to help listeners break free of their cheese addiction so they can lose weight, boost energy, and improve their overall health. This easy-to-follow diet features a treasury of healthy recipes that will tame even the toughest cravings - from pizza to lasagna to ice cream and cheesecake.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    Story
    "Revealing the truth about what cheese does to us"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Cheese Trap to be better than the print version?

    Yes, there's is a downloadable PDF of the recipes so that can be printed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The audiobook features many stories of people and it helped the reader identify with their situations.


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

    The book revealed some things about the dairy industry that I did not know about. The audiobook was insightful and eye-opening.


    Any additional comments?

    There's an audible.com review out there labeling the audiobook as being vegan propaganda which is an absurd statement and simply not true. Using those words is only going to make people fearful. Perhaps learning how your cheese is made might be scary, but there's nothing scary about the audiobook. Cheese is loved by many which might make this audiobook unpopular to many. But if you want to know what is really going on with cheese and want to learn how to be healthier without it then you have to listen to it!

    The audiobook advocates that when someone stops consuming the amount of cheese that is consumed today by average americans, they become much healthier. And when not consuming cheese at all, it reduces your risk of chronic disease and other health issues.

    In this audiobook we learn that cheese is addictive and hard to let go. In my experience, removing cheese from your diet is often the final step when switching to a whole foods plant-based diet. And that's why naturally, a vegan diet comes up in this audiobook.

    The audiobook presents some anecdotal evidence in the form of real life stories which is necessary to helping readers connect with people going through similar situations as a result their diet. There's enough hard evidence already in the audiobook. But this audiobook is only part of the whole idea. I recommend other books and documentaries on whole foods plant-based nutrition to learn more evidence.

    "Vegan Propaganda"

    Apparently the animal based diet that everyone ate before the obesity and T2D epidemic causes all the worlds ills based on cherry-picked data and anecdotes in this book. By all means ditch dairy and see if it helps, but also consider the ketogenic and paleo diets which are excellent and healthful in my experience.
