The single best read on healthy living

Thank you Dr Alan Goldhamer and Dr. Doug Lisle for this amazing document, you have captured essence of human nature so eloquently when it comes to the struggle of healthy lifestyle decision making and made it understandable and achievable for all of us. Thank you Chef AJ for pushing for the audiable version and doing such a lovely job narrating this incredible body of work, you should be in the Veganism Hall of Fame, oh wait, you are! All of you please keep creating new content, we adore you guys and find it so motivational. J. Greener

Very interesting information

This book contains information we all can learn from. It was interesting to listen to once. The problem is that I would like to review all the points within the book, but do not want to listen to the whole book again. All the stories are interesting but I am not interested in hearing them again. I think it would help the audio reader if there was a summary at the end where it would be possible to go back and reveiw all the points

Now I know it’s not my fault

All my life I thought I was weak willed and morally flawed. Thanks to this book I understand that I’ve got a body beautifully programmed to survive a famine but I’m in an environment of abundant crap food. It’s a relief.

This is a must read

This is a comprehensive presentation of how our Western diet is creating chronic disease. Everyone needs this information. Chef AJ does a great job reading.

A book worth multiple reads.

Very informative. Easy to listen to and follow the points. Contains many life changing inspirations. A book worth listening to / reading multiple times.

Wish if read it sooner!

There was little information here that I haven't already heard in documentaries, YouTube videos and other books, BUT, all that is shared is compiled in a manner so compelling, so reassuring that the solutions proposed can no longer be ignored or deferred.

Best book I've ever had the pleasure of reading! <br />

Oh my God! Where do I start! Such a mind blowing read! But confirms what has been in the back of my mind all along! Whole foods plant based diet is how we were meant to eat. I've read Dr. Joel Fuhrman's Eat to Live Book and Super Immunity, and read his Fasting and Eating For Health book as well. This book goes hand in hand with what Dr. Fuhrman teaches. I highly recommend this book. It's non bias, scientic approach is greatly appreciated! If you're someone who is worried about your health, struggle with binge eating, counting calories, depression, anxiety, this book is for you! I strongly believe that it will be the turning point in helping to give you a strong foundation and motivation to start on this new healthy lifestyle journey. You won't be able to stop listening this book! It talks about the life saving benefits of water only fasting as a powerful way to help cure the pleasure trap. Don't hesitate, just read it as soon as possible!

Boring !!!!

Was looking to read this book for many months. Had listened to 10 chapters of 20 on Audible and was so bored but hoped the book would improve, it didn't. I'm now on chapter 16 and have just about given up, just hoping for a couple of gems of wisdom. Probably the most boring and useless book I've ever read.
