Publisher's Summary

Does losing weight and staying healthy feel like a battle? Well, it's really a war. Your enemies are your own genes, backed by millions of years of evolution, and the only way to win is to outsmart them. From the renowned surgeon and founder of Gundry MD, this revolutionary book shares the health secrets other doctors won't tell you:

  • Why plants are "good" for you because they're "bad" for you, and meat is "bad" because it's "good" for you
  • Why plateauing on this diet is actually a sign that you're on the right track
  • Why artificial sweeteners have the same effects as sugar on your health and your waistline
  • Why taking antacids, statins, and drugs for high blood pressure and arthritis masks health issues instead of addressing them

Along with the meal planner, 70 delicious recipes, and inspirational stories, Dr. Gundry's easy-to-memorize tips will keep you healthy and on course.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Why isn't this more mainstream!"

    I am instantly hooked on this way of life. I recently turned 50 and began looking for a way to keep the weight off. This book came into my life at the right time. And Btw, short of having my stomach stapled, I have tried just about every diet on the market. Even took Phen Phen for a little bit. While I believe it is probably not that easy to implement this diet completely, it is definitely doable. When you hear how Dr. Grundy explains our eating habits compared to our ancestors, it really puts our current habits in perspective. Eat less, eat fresh and live healthy!

    Btw, it's not a diet, it's a way of life. Thank you Dr. G.!!

    "Highly recommended, explained the easy way to understand"

    This book is one that I would recommend to everyone. Although emphasizing on older people, even for younger people can benefit significantly.

    The audio book enabled me to finish the book in a week of time during commuting everyday, instead of listening to the radios. Very efficient in terms of utilizing my precious time.

    Highly recommended for busy people commuting to work everyday.

    "Hard to know what to think"

    This is one of those books for which writing a review is difficult. The author starts by trying to establish his credibility as a world class medical expert. It's important that he do that since most of the book has some wild claims which are not presented with any evidence whatsoever in support of those claims.

    I happen to believe a lot of the content, and even so, I didn't know what to think of much of the what I was listening to. Dr. Gundry states that our diet activates killer genes that attempt to kill us off once it is clear that we're becoming a burden to our tribe but the examples he gives seems to just be items of his own choosing. Orange juice is a "bad item" for him -- I agree with that. In fact I agree with most but not all of this nutritional advice, but I couldn't help thinking that he could have just randomly picked any items since he didn't largely seem to be providing any type of evidence in support his choices.

    In a a decade from now I think it's like that everyone comes to understand that food is information and that such information up-regulates or down-regulates various genes either to our eventual benefit or detriment, or some combination thereof. But Dr. Gundry seems to write as if all of this is certain and that he has all of the answers. Part of the problem I think was the narrator as I don't think it was possible to find a worse choice for this book. Within a few minutes of listening just the tone and manner of speaking ending of making the content much less credible, which isn't fair and shouldn't have been the case. So, I didn't mind reading the book and somethings in it were novel and interesting, but I don't really know if I would recommend it to others.

    "Interesting way to look at food"

    Fascinating book about how are genetics and food interact with each other. Heard about this book from John Tesh and his podcasts. Coming from a world renown heart doctor this book its truly inspiring me by the way I look at the food that was not around 100 years ago! I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to turn back the clock on how you eat and how to age better.

    "Another Diet Book"

    Full of words and a far-fetched explanation on how you can affect your genes by what you eat and somehow that will cause weight loss. Preposterous! Could not finish. It was to repetitious and tedious.
