The Eades, I think, are the "thinking person's" diet doctors. This book is a follow-up to a more basic book entitled simply Protein Power. This book is a little more ambitious and tries to cover many, many aspects of health and wellness. I think their ideas about sunbathing are questionable, but who knows, perhaps they will be proven correct in the long run. What I don't question is their dietary advise, which has been culled from years of using these recommendations in a private practice as well as painstaking research of studies.
When I first started doing low-carb, I picked up Atkins because he is the most well known. I didn't particularly like his book because I thought it was kind of ranting and repetitive and didn't give a whole lot of science behind it. Luckily, someone recommended Protein Power and I found it worlds better and very level-headed, scientifically based, etc. If you are not one for the scientific details, some of this book will be irrelevent to you, but I myself find all of this interesting and useful. I think it is explained in a way that is simple enough for most people to undersand as well.
This was an interesting edition with good historical review and review of their plan. The audio quality was very poor which surprised me for an Audible selection.
This is not just for low-carb dieters; there's excellent information for anyone concerned about their health in general. The suggestions given are supported by medical studies (with the references given, at least in the printed book) and anything that's opinion or anecdotal is clearly identified as such. Even if you don't choose a low-carb lifestyle, there's important information in this book that should be carefully considered.
I totally feel ripped off having bought this book. It sounds like they're talking through a tin can (kids' home-made phone setup). It only comes in audio format level 2. Last, it is only an abridged audiobook, not unabridged. Super ripoff.
You need some information that is in the book. They will say refer to pages in the book so if you want to know what they are talking about you will have to buy the book also. There should be a download for those pages when you purchase the audiobook
I really like these authors. Their message is great and very informative. However, the quality of the recording is so bad that it is difficult to get past the poor quality to pay attention to the recording. I would really like to get my money back, this is so bad.
The content of this book is very informative but I had difficulty listening to as the audio is very poor. I could only listen to the kindle through my car's audio system with volume full.
I don't know if the CD version is any better.
This book provides great information on diet and nutrition and healthy eating habits. If you follow the plan presented in this book you will most likely prevent many of the modern diseases and conditions that are diet related such as high cholesterol, blood pressure and type II diabetes (Metabolic Syndrome).
Very difficult to undrestand, the audio was poor quality.
I own the book and I found it rather hard to read - being quite technical, so I skipped a lot. The audiobook made getting through all the content easier
The performance sounded like they recorded it through a cell phone (including absolutely abysmal music at the end of each chapter) and then re-recorded it by replaying the original recording through a 100 year old grammaphone. It is hard to imagine how it could have been worse and still audible.
The jury is still out on this. I should have listened to a sample as I would not have bought it if I had known (or believed since I read the other reviews) how hideous the recording was.
I am going to ask for my credit back.
I know that this book is amazing but now I will have to read it instead of listen to it. Please Drs Eades, allow someone else to re-record your book or fix the audio for you. It's unbearable!
Not if the recording sounds the same
They can narrate as long as the quality is good.
