Great Information

Would you consider the audio edition of The Blood Sugar Solution to be better than the print version?

It is easy to get through the audio edition just driving back and forth to work. A great use of time. But it is hard to go back and find points of interest.

It's just another addiction!

If you could sum up The Blood Sugar Solution in three words, what would they be?

Addicts first rule is to know oneself as an addict. This books let us come to grips with SUGAR and all of its addictive natures. Now it is time to understand why this substance can be and should be label with a warning label as strong as nicotine. It hooks you just like nicotine but nobody seems to mind. Why, because they are probably hooked as well. Finding out the facts is your responsibility and dealing resourcefully with the facts is Dr Hyman's mission.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Just a little to repetitions in some areas.

Most comprehensive program

This book has the most comprehensive program to combat diabetes. I had been trying to gather information from different studies, I should have gone here first.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Blood Sugar Solution?

The realization that diet is the crucial role in staying healthy hit me for the first time like a ton of bricks.

Great Premise but Dr. Mark Hyman....???

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would recommend it if you are interested in learning about a more healthy lifestyle, and losing weight.

What didn’t you like about Mark Hyman, M.D.’s performance?

The problem was that either Dr. Hyman's ego was too big to hire someone who could do the reading other than himself or he could not afford to. His reading came off arrogant. It could have been much better if someone else read it. Also he is trying so hard to coin a new phrase "Diabesity" that he uses the word a zillion times which is so distracting and tiresome. OK we get it. You "invented" this word and want it to stick. But could ya maybe use it a little less so we are not distracted from the main idea of the book?

Any additional comments?

Dr. Hyman has done his homework and has a very good and important idea which could really help people. However he needs to get over himself, and the obvious numerous sales pitches to go to his site to sign up for other stuff and BUY BUY BUY supplements etc.

Just Okay

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

More valuable to someone with less knowledge of nutrition or less of a scientific outlook.

What was most disappointing about Mark Hyman, M.D.’s story?

Lacked details of the medical evidence substantiating his claims for the links between diet and diseases.

A Road Map to Good Health!

This is a must listen! Dr. Hyman addresses the real cause of our growing obesity crisis and how to combat that which leads to heart disease, diabetes, cancer and our general poor health.

His expertise, which is delivered in a caring manner will change your life forever.

Wished it would have been sooner

Sound advice

What did you like most about The Blood Sugar Solution?

This is a book I would have dipped into rather than read straight through if I had bought a hard copy. It had a lot of statistics which I did not need to hear and I may have given up on it if faced with the chore of reading, however as an audio book it was very interesting and reinforced information I had gleaned from other sources. It still takes a dedicated effort to change your life, it is not an easy fix, but definitely worth listening too.

What did you like best about this story?

It brought home to me how many of the problems we suffer are the result of the bad habits we develop without giving conscious thought to what we consume and why, and this can be reversed with dedication in the right direction

What about Mark Hyman, M.D.’s performance did you like?

Mark Hyman is so enthusiastic about the message he conveys that it is hard not to feel caught up in this. A visit to his clinic would be on my to do list if I ever win the lottery.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Save a life - starting with your own

Any additional comments?

I would have enjoyed this more if it had been less repetitious and less statistical, but it was an interesting read
