I have a family member and friend lost 30 pounds each using Dr. Fuhrman's advice in this book. I decided to give it a try and started by reading the book. The book is full of wisdom and what seems to be very sensible advice. I have started on the diet recommended by the doctor and I'm excited to open up a new chapter of good health and longevity and my life. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning best eating practices and living a long and healthy life. And also to anyone experiencing diabetes or other serious health issues should immediately read this book and consider all of its contents.

Princess describes the life of Princess Sultana Al Sa'ud, a princess in the royal house of Saudi Arabia. Hidden behind her black veil, she is a prisoner, jailed by her father, her husband, and her country. Sultana tells of appalling oppressions, everyday occurrences that in any other culture would be seen as shocking human rights violations: 13-year-old girls forced to marry men five times their age; young women killed by drowning, stoning, or isolation in the "women's room". Princess is a testimony to a woman of indomitable spirit and courage.

I found the story of princess whole town is life interesting, fascinating and horrific. Listening to her plight and that of the women in Saudi Arabia caused me to appreciate our freedom here in the United States and how fragile freedom can be against fanatics and bullies. We have our own fanatics and Belize attempting to take hold in United States to suppress discussion and expression of any idea they don't like. This book and serve as a reminder how fragile freedom is and how Portland is that everyone gets to speak their mind even if it's not popular. As for the women of the Middle East the treatment they receive from their men and government is truly barbaric, backward and Medievil. Someday I'm sure they will face the wrath of the general populace and their women that they suppress so harshly. Maybe by some miracle they will wake up and begin to treat people as valuable and invested with human rights but I'm sure there'll be a fierce struggle rather than an intellectual acceptance of that truth. I do highly recommend this book as an insight into what society can be at the values are worked and twisted and why we should be involved with encouraging change and growth in the Middle East another backwards areas.

I think this author reviewed a dozen YouTube videos notes and then made a very basic fuck out of his notes. This book had no original thinking, no clever insights, and instead seemed to be a regurgitation of Basic points from other works. The author for her to at least a dozen YouTube videos as points of reference and I would bet he reviewed those then made this book. Thankfully this us a short book but my advice is not to waste your time on this book and instead buy a different book.

Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.

I really enjoyed the information. The doctor seems to know what he's talking about and he is very specific with the support for what he is saying. I'm not a doctor or medical researcher though and I would've preferred more of a "bottom line" approach where he would have given his advice rather than spending a lot of time on theory and proofs. Once I decided to believe the doctor because he was credible I just didn't need all of the additional details. That being said I think he was very thorough and the book is extremely valuable. I'm going to follow the diet advice which is probably the highest compliment I could give to the author.

Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

This book was the first book I have read telling about the harm that can come from eating wheat and wheat products. If what the author is saying is true with is a terrifying thing to eat. The book could use some editing. The author has a habit of inserting silly and tiresome analogies that should be edited out. He also goes on for too long time setting scientific studies and trying to prove his case. Once I was convinced that we've had problems I would've been happy with the answers rather than listening on anon 10 trying to prove his case. That being said this is a book I think anyone interested in health and healthy eating should read. If the author is correct about the dangers of wheat known should be eating it.

It seems the worst aspects of the donor have been transplanted as well. As his previously well-regulated home descends into riotous chaos, the doctor realises he will have to try to reverse the operation; but the dog isn't so keen....

Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ met face to face with people just like you. Broken, imperfect, sometimes fearful, and without hope. The Day I Met Jesus is a beautifully crafted narrative that chronicles the remarkable encounters of five women in the Gospels who were desperate to find wholeness, security, and purpose. Like all of us, these women struggled with the regrets of their pasts, the stresses of their presents, and the worries of their tomorrows.

I enjoyed this interesting and touching fictional work about five women mentioned in the Bible. I plan to give one as a gift to my serious Christian sister in law. I think anyone with a desire for a touching, typically based set of stories that will inspire you and warm your heart would enjoy this book. I think the fictional part is masterfully done and although I'm certainly not a bible scholar I did not hear anything that contradicted the Bible as I know it and I found myself very touched by the tender heart of God as expressed through Jesus and his actions related to the five women Who stories were told in this book. I did not love the narrator and found her accent and voice to be a minor detraction from the book but I am very glad that I listened to this book.
