A beautiful voice with a beautiful content!

There’s a ton of good information in this book to help you live a long and healthy life. However, as a weight loss plan, it’s just way too restrictive for anyone other than someone who’s fighting disease and needs to make all of these changes to save or restore their life.

Has great information

This isn't the easiest way to eat, as you'll have to say goodbye to some of your best friends (bread, sugar, grains, among just a few) but when you're ready to trade instant gratification for long term health Dr. G will show you how. Wish I had done this a long time ago.

Great resource!

I need to know the reasons behind changing the way I eat. It is basically a combination of paleo and vegan, or piscatorial. You will have to cook all your own meals but I have already noticed a huge reduction in the need for my asthma medication.

A good one.

A good one. I am sure that too of everything is not good. Maybe this book entails it all. I am not against healthy foods but this may be the book that can help on some of the autoimmune diseases. Worth it.

The other side!

This is the other side of the story about green plants. It can be true especially when you are in a particular diet. This will be a perfect summary to listen.
