    "Read Eat to Live first"

    If you aren't familiar with any of his previous works, read Eat to Live first. This book seems to be the answer to criticisms and further questions. It is packed with studies, critiques of those studies and application to his message (if you prefer to see that kind of stuff than listen to it, get the kindle version). He also breaks down why other popular diets don't work (including eat to live vs. Paleo, Mediterranean, Wheat belly and Low Fat Vegan) and the redeeming qualities of those diets. This part was pretty interesting. In the last bit, he lays out the specifics of the nutritarian lifestyle. He gives suggestions for those who complain of lack of time to food prep. He also talks about how to prepare food so that it is very appealing. Some of the concepts are repeated but that's to drive those ideas home so that you recognize their importance. At the end I thought it was interesting how he also addresses his product line as to why so many products, their price and what it funds. It positively changed how I view his "brand."

    The supplemental document is fabulous. Packed with lots of information and recipes. All the sidebars seem to be there as well as charts, images and more. I don't feel deprived of the kindle version with this document.

    For performance, I would have preferred to hear Joel Fuhrman read the *whole* book (not just the beginning and end only). There were some medical terms that were strangely pronounced (unrelated to accent) and the speaker lacks the passion Joel Fuhrman has for his work. That passion would have made it easier to listen to although the speaker isn't terrible to listen to either.

    Bottom line: I definitely recommend it.

    "Dissapointing"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator. It was touted as being narrated by the author and Chris Sorensen. However, there is only a short piece by the author, Dr. Fuhrman. This really ruined the book for me.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    N/A


    Would you be willing to try another one of Joel Fuhrman and Chris Sorensen ’s performances?

    No.


    Do you think The End of Dieting needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I do have Dr. Fuhrman's other books. These books are read mostly by him. I appreciated the information shared. Mostly I appreciated his enthusiasm for the information. This is just a rehash of his previous books, with a lot of dry data disparaging other diet plans. The narrator made that even more tedious. In the end, I sadly regret this purchase.

    "Good information, I will move on it."
    What did you love best about The End of Dieting?

    I liked the references to the studies and I liked how he addresses the objections to selling products. I liked the recipes as we'll.

    "Good information but a lot of repeat."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book does not have to be so long. The author repeats the same concepts over and over.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Joel Fuhrman? Why or why not?

    Yes. He is an expert and his concepts are sound.

    Story
    "The end of diet = Eat only vegetables and legumes."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    While the information inside this book is credible, it is sobering and disappointing because it's clear to me that this "end-of-dieting" diet is something I will never be able to live by.
    The skinny of it is that you need to restrict your diet to vegetables, legumes, fruits and if you really insist, and tiny amount of fish/meat. Some nuts and seeds are also fine and even recommended.
    No oil, no sugar, no salt etc. etc.
    The problem is that for most people it is a proposition that is way out of their reach, and will undoubtedly cause people to throw their hands in the air in despair... and change absolutely nothing.
    It would be much better if there was some guidance on how to make some small adjustments that will lead you to get closer to that ideal nutrition, but there's nothing of that sort in there.


    Was The End of Dieting worth the listening time?

    Not really.
