Publisher's Summary

Has your doctor lied to you?

Eat low-fat and high-carb, including plenty of “healthy” whole grains - does that sound familiar? Perhaps, this is what you were told at your last doctor’s appointment or visit with a nutritionist, or perhaps, it is something you read online when searching for a healthy diet. And maybe, you’ve been misled. Dr. Ken Berry is here to dispel the myths and misinformation that have been perpetuated by the medical and food industries for decades.

This updated and expanded edition of Dr. Berry’s best seller Lies My Doctor Told Me exposes the truth behind all kinds of “lies” told by well-meaning but misinformed medical practitioners. Nutritional therapy is often overlooked in medical school, and the information provided to physicians is often outdated. However, the negative consequences on your health remain the same. Advice to avoid healthy fats and stay out of the sun has been proven to be detrimental to longevity and can wreak havoc on your system. 

In this audiobook, Dr. Berry will enlighten you about nutrition and life choices, their role in our health, and how to begin an educated conversation with your doctor about finding the right path for you.

This book will teach you:
 

  • Facts doctors are taught to think about nutrition and other preventative health measures and how they should be thinking
  • Story of how the food pyramid and MyPlate came into existence and why they should change
  • Facts about fat intake and heart health
  • Truth about the effects of whole wheat on the human body
  • Role of dairy in your diet
  • Truth about salt - friend or foe?
  • Dangers and benefits of hormone therapy
  • New information about inflammation and how it should be viewed by doctors

Come out of the darkness and let Ken Berry be your guide to optimal health and harmony!

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

Extremely informative!

I read the Kindle version several months ago and it’s already improved my health. I was excited for a refresher with this audible version.
If you’re not familiar with Dr.Berry from his fantastic YouTube videos you won’t care that the narrator sounds a bit robotic and lacks the personality & charisma of Dr. Berry.
The content is fantastic! Sometimes I was very pissed off reading how decades of bad advice has evolved in the medical community and has personally affected me and my family.
Hopefully Dr.Berry’s next book will be narrated by him...

Excellent Book

Awesome Read. Great information in easy language. Every medical professional person should read and question their own understanding of the things they practice. Dr. Berry does an amazing job uncovering some REAL truths in order to really help not only himself but his patients and thousands of others who blindly believed "doctors knew all". They don't and this book helps shine some truths on a few of those areas that more science and research should been taught in medical schools.

Everyone must read it or at least give a listen to

The most important book you will ever read. It should be taught to kids in schools.

I love Dr. Ken Berry!

I’ve listened to Ken Berry on several podcasts, which is how I found out about his book. I enjoyed this book’s content, humor, and simplified debunking of common medical myths. However, I wish Dr. Berry had read it himself. My only criticism is that the monotone voice used took away from the listening experience. However, I’d still recommend this book to everyone I care about.

Thought Provoking

I like that Dr Berry gives references so you can verify what he's saying. There are some 'lies' that I discovered a while ago (great to hear another take) but so much of the book is new to me. Will listen to it again soon and will recommend to friends and family. One of the best on the subject. Grab it now, you won't be disappointed (except with governments, medical establishment, big food and pharma)!

A Must Read

If you value the life you have or the life you would like to have then this is the book for you. So many of the lies Dr. Berry uncovers have been told to me by doctors. I am now improving my health and weight by following his advise. Thank you Dr. Berry you are the modern day Super Hero

Good all round look at real health

An easy listen, a bit too much repetition, probably for effect. Would have like Dr Berry to have narrated himself!

Read it. Take back control of your health.

I was familiar with Ken Barry's YouTube videos before listening to this book. He is an important member of the vanguard of doctors, specialists, scientists, researchers and even investigative journalists who are smart enough to be able to see the inconsistencies in the science that is currently accepted without question by many members of the medical profession, and who are not afraid to call it out, and have the communication skills to convey that to ordinary folk.
The book was not a disappointment. I did at one point find the repetitive format of each chapter slightly annoying. the same style of opening and closing. Later in the book it did not bother me, I could see the value in the repetition. it underscored the fact that each "lie" may be different, but the problem is also the same one. The fact that doctors don't question what they are told as often as they should. And also that our options are the same when confronted with this. We try to work with our doctor or we find a new one Or we educate ourselves and have the confidence to take our health into our own hands.

Brilliant and paradigm altering

The narrator was great that I missed hearing doctor Berrys Nashville twang. Filled with brilliant Information and sound logical thinking. Startling, to say the least.

Excellent!

My first audible book and I enjoyed it immensely...it's likely I would have read the book over months and may have even given up reading it all.

Very well written and such a wealth of insight into the medical profession and Lies our Dr's tell us.
Thank you Dr Berry

This book is invaluable. Debunks a lot of the medical misinformation out there. With references and tools to point you in the right direction to research things further on your own.

Great work Ken

We all need to realise that each of us has the ability research and understand what we need to be healthy. We need to question everything and own every choice when it comes to our health. Each of us can look up medical research and read it for ourselves. We need to pull doctors up when they are not staying up to date with current research. We can not let old ideas that are not working continue. We need to promote and thank the good doctors that continually improving their knowledge and skills to better serve the public. We can rid the world of arrogance and ignorance. Thank you Ken for this insightful and paradigm shifting book. We need more doctors like you.
