Not much difference...

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

Yes, unfortunately there really isnt much difference between this book and all other books that scream that one should eat clean and organic because the body can't tolerate gluten and processed food and those food with high additives. Its very interesting yet not something that I havent already heard.

What other book might you compare Clean - Expanded Edition to and why?

The Fast Metabolism Diet

Not based on science or evidence

This started off as a very interesting book but soon started to making claims about human Physiology and toxins that remained unsubstantiated through the book. I've tried doing my own research on cleansing diets, functional medicine and other aspects like mucoid plaques, supplementation, leaky gut syndrome, acidity in the body, toxins and general science based health and nutrition and have found no support for the claims made in this book.

There is some science in there, I admit, and there are real world descriptions in there that make all this sound plausible and even tempting to attempt. But please be aware that colonics can be dangerous, and most of the advice given in this book is completely unsubstantiated and is derived from a lot of the detox pseudoscience that's already out there. Try this at your own risk and be careful. I would just recommend you eat your veggies and exercise regularly to get similar results. At least that has a lot of grounding in reality, unlike this book.

Great information

I downloaded this audio book after my friend followed the clean program for three weeks and she highly recommended it. I'm enjoying the information and look forward to starting this program in the next couple of weeks.

Great book

I enjoyed reading the book. I read the book while listening to the audible book. I am impressed with the breadth and depth of Dr. Junger's knowledge of the subject. I was a little put off by the promoting he was doing about the program and the products he sells throughout the book. I really would prefer to read the study separately from the promotional materials. I really believe in clean. I don't have to be beat over the head to do it.

Good listen while I walk

What did you love best about Clean - Expanded Edition?

Whether one is ready to undertake the 3-week clean, Alejandro Junger gives a detailed description of why he decided to learn about nutrition and its effects on disease. He is compelling to take the 3-week clean and make it part of an annual habit. I was very satisfied with his message, narration, and explanations of each topic.

Would you be willing to try another book from Alejandro Junger? Why or why not?

yes

What about Alejandro Junger’s performance did you like?

He has a lovely accent and clear english way.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The overall message about disease and how we forget to learn that in med school.

Any additional comments?

I am insisting that my 75-year old father reads this!

Detox made easy!

The author does a great job of explaining a very complex topic. Even if you don't adopt his program, you will learn a lot about how to improve your health.

I didn't like it

Let me preface my disdain for this book with: I exercise regularly, try to get 8 hours sleep, eat fairly healthy and don't overeat, I'm 40 years old and weigh about 15 pounds more then I did my senior high school when I wrestled varsity. This book irked me. It goes over a million things one needs to do to detox without iterating a concrete prioritized plan. It felt like semi emotional rambling on things one could do and leaves the reader confused on the most important things to do. Moreover the authors opinions seem to come from things he read about rather than tried to do himself. For example, he says to take as hot showers possible then as cold as possible, alternating this a few time. If you've ever tried this in a Colorado winter you know this is extremely hard to do. I am about 90% done with this book scratching my head as to what I should do because there was just so much things thrown out in this book. By the way, the author self admitdly was extremely out of shape and overweight when he started detoxing so take that for what it's worth ...if you are ready in good shape this book may seem overkill or confusing for your goals.

Insightful

The information contained in this book has unveiled my food choices which have fundamentally transformed my eating habits. I highly recommend this to people who enjoy diving into the detail of how toxins negatively dismantle our body’s natural ability to heal itself as a result of our modern cultural eating norms.

Excellent - a must read

I've read "Clean" at least 3 times now. Despite reading many other books about health and healthy living, I keep coming back to Clean to review and get me back on track. Well written - and beautifully read, Alejandro Junger keeps you listening with his engaging style. The diet is an excellent and healthy way to reset your body, and the advice for extra detoxing is great. Love it.

Following the clean Program transformed my health

Any additional comments?

The Clean Program, as read by Dr. Junger, can transform your health. Listening to him describe the program, the reasons and science behind it gives you buy in before you start trying to carry it out.

A great and clear program

Honestly the content was excellent and I am certainly about to try the recommendations. However in my opinion the narration done by the author required a lot of attention to follow due to the accent and I think having a professional narrator may have been a better move. But great book!
