Very valuable for a beginner. Not very comprehensive if you already know the basics. You definitely get the value of what you pay for it, but don't expect to be the expert after this book.

If you want to build a body you can be proud of without starving or depriving yourself of all the foods you actually like...then you want to listen to this book. What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers teach you about dieting is wrong? What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating naughty foods every week? What if you didn't have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

This is NOT a cook book. This is a nutrition book that has cooking information and recipes. You get a lot of nutritional information from this book. If you are interested in the recipes, get the physical book. It doesn't work very well to listen to the recipes.

This book is not about what's hip these days. It's scientific methods to lose fat and gain muscle. The information in this book is not revolutionary, but with all the new diets out there, it's forgotten that we are human beings and our bodies don't update with every new iPhone. Whatever worked 100 years ago will still work. We don't need a new diet or new ways to work out. Listen to this book and give it 12 weeks. You will not need another diet or fitness book.

Extreme success, by definition, lies beyond the realm of normal action. If you want to achieve extreme success, you can’t operate like everybody else and settle for mediocrity. You need to remove luck and chance from your business equation, and lock in massive success. The 10X Rule shows you how!

There are no tricks or shortcuts in this book. If you want to be successful, work harder than everyone else. That's it. It is more of a motivation than education. Definitely not for everyone.

Get ready learn detailed information about nutrition. It is completely science based, free from fads and bs. It feels like you are in a lecture in med school. I can judge diets out there better and make better choices about food.

  • Good Calories, Bad Calories

For decades we have been taught that fat is bad for us, carbohydrates better, and that the key to a healthy weight is eating less and exercising more. Yet despite this advice, we have seen unprecedented epidemics of obesity and diabetes. Taubes argues that the problem lies in refined carbohydrates, like white flour, easily digested starches, and sugars, and that the key to good health is the kind of calories we take in, not the number.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was. It helped me understand the facts.

Has Good Calories, Bad Calories turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Mike Chamberlain?

Yes

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes

Any additional comments?

In this book, Gary Taubes did exactly what supposedly evil scientists in his book did. When he presented 9 studies that showed high fat diet is bad, he put every aspect of those studies under scrutiny and dismissed every evidence. However, when he presented 1 study that showed high fat diet may not be that bad, he didn't question the study at all, accepted all the claims, and twisted the results to "high-fat diet is good". There are several reasons why there will never be an unquestionable study that shows one kind of diet is better than the other, so I am not saying what Gary Taubes is defending is right or wrong. However, this book definitely isn't a scientific proof of his dietary advice. Mr. Taubes claims that the scientists had already decided that high fat diet is bad, and interpreted their data with bias to support their hypothesis, and they dismissed the data that didn't support their hypothesis. He does the exact same thing in this book. He has already decided that high fat diet is good, and he dismisses every study that contradicts with his ideas, and he accepts every study that supports his ideas. He should have titled the book good scientists bad scientists, because according to Mr. Taubes, every scientist claiming high-fat diet is bad is a bad scientist, and every scientist claiming high-fat diet is good is a good scientist.
