    "Love the content, but...."
    Where does The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Compared to other books about nutrition, this is one of my favorites.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Ganim?

    The absolute worst part of this audio book is the narrator. Peter Ganim is brutal. At times it is hard to stay awake as he is the most monotone narrator I have ever heard.

    "Encouraging for adopting a healthy lifestyle."

    The narrator was a little dry.
    The content lays out a doable plan adopt a healthy lifestyle. It is similar to the bulletproof diet but more liberal in areas of suspect foods (like dairy, fermented veggies, and quinoa). If I even do half of the plan, I will be healthier.

    "Luxurious and healthy eating lifestyle, luv it!"

    I've done a lot of health research the last decade, in part, due to my experiencing neurological issues associated with my eating lifestyle. After finally settling on Dr Perlmutter advice and knowledge, I've completely removed all my health issues niw that I follow the Whole Life Plan. This audio book was a perfect blueprint to accomplish it. I highly recommend this book in both print and digital audio.

    It says Bill but these reviews are by his wife, me, Debbie. I am into healthy eating and 'truly' loving one another.

    "Knowledge is power"

    Other than a couple boring chapters where the book talks about recipes...not something you want read to you but the PDF comes in handy for this. Lots of good info.

    "I can see how this would be great for some"

    This is a lot of the same from the last two books. The action plan doesn't work very well as an audio book. still great info though for anyone who hasn't read his other books

    "Another great addition to the series"

    If you have read the two previous books this one falls in line. It mostly serves as a melding of his prior books, putting everything into practical terms that use can use everyday. Much of what he recommends is back by studies.

    "Narrator's Voice/Prosody is like a stuck-up, smug a--hole"

    Narrator's Voice/Prosody is like a stuck-up, smug a--hole!
    The book is a great guide with some, but not too much, background education/info.

    "Not sure how to obtain the PDF?"

    Great book! I've been GF for 15 years and have also suffered from RA for the same amount of time. I look forward to some relief with cutting the carbs:) as I feel like I have tried everything!
