From the New York Times best-selling author of The Paleo Solution...
One month to reset your metabolism for lasting fat loss.
One week to discover the carbs that are right for you.
Do you struggle to lose weight and get healthy? Are you playing the blame game and berating yourself for "cheating" on your diet? This struggle should come as no surprise, as we are genetically wired to eat more and move less - the exact opposite of the advice we are often given. Now there is a more customized weight loss solution that works with your body, a solution based not on arbitrary restriction of foods but on what works for you. Developed by former research biochemist, health expert, and best-selling author Robb Wolf, Wired to Eat offers an eating program based on groundbreaking research that will rewire your appetite for weight loss and help you finally determine the optimal foods for your diet and metabolism.
With his best-selling book The Paleo Solution, Robb Wolf helped hundreds of thousands of people lose weight by eating a low-carb paleo diet, but paleo is only a starting point, not a destination. Now he'll share a more customized way of eating that may be the key to permanent weight loss and better health. You'll start with Wolf's 30-Day Reset to help you restore your body's blood sugar levels, repair your appetite, and reverse insulin resistance. There are more than 70 delicious recipes, detailed meal plans, and shopping lists to aid you on your journey. Wolf also includes meal plans for people who suffer with autoimmune diseases as well as advice on eating a ketogenic diet. Once you've completed this phase of the plan, the unique 7-Day Carb Test will help you determine what amounts and types of carbs you can tolerate.
No more guessing. Now you can find out for yourself which foods you can and cannot eat instead of relying on a one-size-fits all diet. Transform your diet by discovering your personalized weight loss blueprint with Wired to Eat.

Wired to Eat digs into the science to show you how the 'healthy' foods you've been eating are keeping you sick, tired, and overweight, and provides an effective, easy-to-follow action plan to help you look, feel, and live your best." (Melissa Hartwig, New York Times best-selling author and Whole30 cofounder)

I highly recommend this groundbreaking program for anyone who has struggled with weight or health issues or who simply wants to get to the next level of well-being."

I would have preferred this reading experience if I had not heard so much duplicate information from Robb's previous book; however, the information was still valid and i did like the book especially if looked at independently of the previous. If you have not already read the Paleo solution you can skip that and go right to this and at the end will probably know more.
Robb's latest book can best be described as an intersection of information pipelines. It compiles information from a variety of sources: Robb's head, paleo research, medical research and various other folks in the ancestral health and functional health fields. I loved the original Paleo Solution book and I think this is a nice update/augmentation.
I particularly enjoy the advice on personal nutrition. Even though I am mostly compliant on a LCHF ancestral diet, I struggle to lose weight. I have grooved toward keto and fasting, observing solid results. But I've been thinking "a life without carbs" will be difficult. I fully plan to take the 7 day carb test to find the real villains in my story.
As for the performance, Kaleo was fine and a good orator. I kept hearing Robb's voice though! As a frequent podcast listener (Paleo Solution) certain phrases jump out and almost seem unnatural coming from not-Robb. This is one case I would have preferred the author narrate his own book.
Overall a great listen and highly recommended. Bravo Robb! Keep breaking down conventional wisdom.
Robb put some very good stuff in his new book. It's good to see a reasoned approach to health. There is way too much extremism. People take up a position and it becomes a religion. I have been Paleo for years and it's not a religion. It's just a reasonable way to eat. Lots of fresh vegetables, some fruit and some quality meat. Nice to see the science.
I enjoyed the science and research that went into this book. I'm starting my 30 day Reset today! It's jarring & annoying to have to listen to mispronounced scientific / medical / nutrition terminology. The narrator did a fairly good job, but there were still several instances (I.e. Bu- TIE?! - rate) that just throw me off my concentration. Then I have to rewind to listen to those passages all over again so I can hear what was being said.
That said, the book itself is fantastic! I would not have read it this quickly without the audible version so I am thankful for that. Just remain disappointed that somebody didn't listen for the mispronunciations before publishing the final version ...
Robb Wolf has one upped himself from The Paleo Solution. His latest book tackles a wide range of topics from why we eat what we eat to multiple detailed approaches on different paths to a healthier way to live. As with anything in life there truly is no one size fits all. Robb breaks down many essential tools to getting the most out of life. A MUST READ!
The narrator of this book wasn't terrible, but.... Robb Wolf has such a distinct personality that it would have been much better if he had read the book himself. Also, this kind of book just didn't lend itself well to an audio format. I will be returning this book and purchasing a hard copy.
Should be mandatory listening for everyone including health care practitioners! Great information in an easy to understand context. Robb Wolf examines food, eating, disease and health from a multifaceted sociocultural, psychological and biological perspective. Valuable information for all ! only criticism; the narrator is very monotone and lacks any prosody. Should have been narrated by the mastermind himself; Robb Wolf! 99/100.
