Are you confused by what your cholesterol levels really say about your health? Don't you wish someone could just spell it out in simple English and tell you what, if anything, you need to do to improve your heart and overall health? That's precisely what Cholesterol Clarity is designed to do. Jimmy Moore, a prolific and highly respected health blogger and podcaster, interviewed 28 of the world's top health experts from various fields to give you the complete lowdown on cholesterol. He and his co-author, family practitioner and researcher Dr. Eric Westman, have broken down this critical information for you to know what is most important and what is not.
You won't find this kind of comprehensive, cutting-edge, expert-driven cholesterol information all in one place anywhere else. Did you know, for instance, that you don't have to eat a low-fat diet, take a statin drug, or eat more of the so-called "healthy" whole grains to get your cholesterol levels where they need to be? Learn what really works from the best experts on the subject. Cholesterol Clarity will not only tell you what your LDL, HDL, triglycerides, and other key cholesterol markers really mean, but it will arm you with what you can do nutritionally to become as optimally healthy as you can possibly be!
Featured Experts: Dr. William Davis, Dr. Ronald Krauss, Dr. Uffe Ravnskov, Dr. Robert Lustig, Dr. Duane Graveline, Dr. Jonny Bowden, Dr. Chris Masterjohn, Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, Dr. John Briffa, Dr. Thomas Dayspring, Dr. Fred Pescatore, Gary Taubes and over a dozen more!

This book will save lives. It was just the start of a journey through other books along the line of the damage done to our bodies via grains / carbs / sugar and the healing and healthful benefits of good fats. The programming the public has received in the past decades has been upside down and backwards and as a result many people have suffered with inflammation, heart disease, diabetes, alzheimers, cancer, and shortened lives with much of their budget spent on pharmaceuticals when simple knowledge of how food works in the body would have led to health, happier days and ease of movement.
How many people suffer because they don't know what is in this book and the other books along this line of knowledge? How many families have been broken due to family members dying, or suffering long illness or loss of everything they have worked for to pay medical bills?
Audible has numerous books now along this line, and while the audio editing of this book is poor, the message alone is valuable. I gave this book in hardcover to people who have need for it. One person (the smartest of the group) has eliminated 2 prescriptions so far and is feeling less aches and pains and has improved her quality of life. Two people are not "readers" so the books given are unused. One person skims and says the message is valid, but does not have the will power to change their diet.
This book can change, improve, and save lives by providing people with the power to understand their bodies, how lab tests are used to justify the broad use of pharmaceuticals, and empowers people to change.
Some doctors are up-to-date and understand this information. Too many still don't. It is up to the proactive person to take personal responsibility for what they eat and change their health. This book is a foundational understanding. There are other books that carry on and give great dietary information - also on Audible.

The audio quality of this book is awful. The content is fabulous and very informative however it was a struggle just to listen to it. The mouth noises alone are enough to make someone go in sane.

Where does Cholesterol Clarity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I think its information is good. It references many other books that I have listened to on audible.com. So it's not just an author providing his own claims or theories. He also has an expert who helps him with writing the book.
What did you like best about this story?
The book as a whole is very informative and very simplistic. That makes for easy comprehension. I love the clarity notes with the sound because it alerts you enough to pay attention to the supporting information to back up the claim.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
The quality of the book is the main issue. Some segments are great some segments should have been redone. The audio quality goes from sounding like it was done in the studio to sounding like it was done in someone's bathroom. There were also too many long pauses between sections. And finally, the narrator has a bad habit of smacking his lips between sentences. The smacking ceased the further into the book you get.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No real reactions other than getting annoyed (smacking, long pauses) or having those aha moments.
Any additional comments?
Overall if you can tolerate the smacking, long pauses, and changes in audio quality, the book is very informative and comprehensible. I think anyone who wants to better understand cholesterol should get the book.

What other book might you compare Cholesterol Clarity to and why?
The Great cholesterol Myth. Similar
Have you listened to any of Jimmy Moore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I listen to his podcast

What disappointed you about Cholesterol Clarity?
I Love Jimmy Moore's podcasts and general view, however, this book was very repetitive and did not contain much detailed info. It was mostly "bumper sticker" information that we already know. The book could have been 1/4 of the length and conveyed the same info.
Were the concepts of this book easy to follow, or were they too technical?
Yes, it was easy to follow....too easy
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Cholesterol Clarity?
the almost 1 hour of listening to every name of doctor/expert interviewed for this book along with their bio. SKIP TO 1 HOUR AND 10 MINUTES, TO START THE BOOK.
Any additional comments?
It is probably a better book to have in hard copy to reference back to some of the information.

I got this book after receiving my less-than-stellar cholesterol numbers. After, reading this book, I decided to get a coronary CT scan and my doctor was blown away by the fact that I have ZERO signs of heart disease. I had already informed her that I wasn’t interested in taking statins but she really wanted me to. We negotiated a 3 month term to come back and retest. Even using the guidelines from the book, my ratio of triglycerides to HDL is high and my HDL is definitely low. So now I work on them with diet and exercise. NO STATINS FOR ME! I really appreciate having a source of information that breaks everything down in a way that makes sense and gives me a way forward.
A must read book if you care about your health and anybody else's. Get the real facts. Look up the facts, do the research. Quit being fooled by pharmaceutical companies and doctors who are paid to push their drugs. we have to take responsibility, teach and protect our health ourselves..... I have tried it all .....
Toward the last few chapters the narration would skip. However, the information was most enlightening.
This book is full of contradictions, mouth noises, and left me totally confused. First the Arthur says cholesterol means nothing, then you get the classic, "However".... The book continues this way and in the end, I still don't know whether I should stick to my ketogenic diet or not.
Would you listen to Cholesterol Clarity again? Why?
I prefer reading this book because as much as I love Jimmy Moore, I don't really enjoy his reading style. Or maybe it's because the sound is a little too clear, hearing him swallow etc.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Cholesterol Clarity?
So much good info here. Should be read by anyone with an interest in their health and cholesterol tests.
What does Jimmy Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Jimmy collates all the current info from many experts in the field.

Cholesterol has always been a mystery to me, one I have to pray I got a good report on. Now I have a better understanding of it. How to convince my GP that if need be I don't want medication, that will be testing. I will keep this in my library and play it another couple of times.
