A much needed dose of reality
I think this is a book everyone should read/listen to, even though (especially!) most people will be uncomfortable with the message it contains. As someone who is a natural skeptic, yet has still fallen prey to many of the diets outlined in this book, seeing popular nutritional information presented as myths we repeat to ourselves was very eye opening. As you start to see the patterns in the way the diet gurus talk and how we've begun to replace our desire for being spiritually "pure" with being nutritionally "pure", why we fall so easily for each new diet begins to make much more sense.
I do feel certain parts of the book could have been fleshed out a little more and I do think the repeated recommendation of "moderation", while true, can leave a lot of people unsure of what "moderation" really entails. Unfortunately we are all rather uncomfortable with the fact that as individuals, we all must experiment and find out what "moderation" really means for ourselves rather than using a blanket prescription from some random "expert".
I'll definitely be recommending this book to friends and family.

Good, but not really that "simple".
I think that this is a good plan and the part on willpower was especially motivating. But as someone who's not looking to continually bulk and cut or keep my body fat percentage below 20% this isn't the plan for me. The narrator wasn't my favourite, but wasn't hard to listen to either. I likely won't keep the book, as I won't be following the plan, but I think it'd be great for someone who wants the super lean and muscular look the plan will eventually provide.
