Incomplete

Good information but very incomplete! Dr Hyman routinely references "Blood Sugar Solution.com for complete information" and the "Companion PDF". When referring to the above, the information was not there/ " Error" message. The Web site is not maintained. I wasted my money and time. SAD.

Lifestyle Changing

Would you listen to The Blood Sugar Solution again? Why?

I found myself hitting rewind several times to relisten to parts of this book because the information was so amazing. Mark really explains in detail why certain foods are causing diabesity and simple food choice and lifestyle changes that can reverse diabesity. The side effect of getting health is losing weight- doesn't get better than this!

Any additional comments?

This audible book was very engaging and held my attention. The information provided is very simple to understand. I am a wellness coach at a weight loss center and the information provided has helped me to have a better understanding of nutrition and lots of information I can share. The information is life changing and I highly recommend this book to anyone that is looking to get healthy and drop some pounds.

Great health plan, too many politics

This is a really good examination of the types of foods we should be eating a why. The why part takes up chapters 1-14. To get to the plan, just start around chapter 15.

Warning: this book is very political.

That may not bother you if you either agree with his politics (think ObamaCare) or if you can ignore them long enough to listen to the many good ideas about nutrition that are presented here. But if your blood pressure gets raised at the very mention of health care politics, it might be healthier for you to avoid this book.

The author clearly knows his stuff as the book is very well researched and his ideas are presented in a clear format. The author is the narrator, and he does a wonderful job of reading his own material. His plan is understandable and doable, but the general ideas about how to choose food - what to eat and what to avoid are, to me, the meat of the book.

Speaking of meat, I found him to be very open minded - he won't tell you that you have to be a vegetarian or a vegan to eat well, he just presents various ideas that you can choose from to find the best nutritional plan for you. He also addresses the use of a variety of vitamins and supplements.

Another warning: if you're not just looking for ideas, but considering following the plan he outlines, you may want to consider getting the print version.This is also true for some of the more complex suggestions (vitamin and supplement usage).

Personally, I liked the book so much that I bought the digital Kindle version for my phone so that I can pay closer attention to the details. The book did not receive a perfect score because I prefer my nutritional advice without a side of politics. Apart from that, I thought it was a great listen, and I will probably listen to parts of it again.
